Through December 31, 2017, Delta is offering two free premium drinks in their US SkyClub locations to those with a Delta American Express Card. While SkyClubs always have complimentary house beer, wine, and cocktails, they also have an extensive selection of premium drinks available for purchase. This promotion is very similar to the one they offered this May.
This perk is valid for all co-branded Delta American Express Cards, including the Blue Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express, Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express, as well as Delta’s premium Reserve Cards.
To take advantage of this opportunity you need to present an eligible card at the bar, and then you’ll enjoy up to two complimentary premium drinks. The terms suggest that you get up to two drinks per daily visit per card, so if you’re someone who has multiple cards, I suppose you can “invite” the people around you to enjoy premium drinks as well (after all, consuming four, six, or eight drinks before a flight sounds slightly irresponsible). Here are the terms associated with this offer:
Valid only for guests 21 years and older. Good for two drinks per active Delta SkyMiles Credit Card presented to Delta Sky Club per daily visit. Select champagnes and premium spirits are excluded. A list of included drinks will be provided upon request. This offer is non-transferable and has no cash redemption value. All Delta Sky Club rules and applicable entry fees apply. Offer can be changed or revoked at any time. Valid from December 1 – December 31, 2017 at THE BAR at Delta Sky Club. Please drink responsibly.
This won’t work on all premium drinks, so don’t expect that this will get you a bottle of Krug (though redeeming Delta SkyMiles for that can be a great deal).

You need to be able to access the SkyClub to begin with in order to take advantage of this promotion, and not all of the above cards get you access. You could use a card like The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN to access a SkyClub (assuming you’re flying Delta the same day), and then could use a card like the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express or Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express to get your free premium drinks.
