Update: July 12: Existing Delta Reserve cardholders are no longer eligible to order replacement cards for the 747 metal Reserves. The text and images of our original June 16 post are included below, in case you want to know how to order a replacement Amex card in general.
I don’t know about you but I was pretty thrilled to learn Delta and Amex issued limited edition Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Cards made of actual 747 metal.
The companies, of course, also relaunched some pretty massive welcome offers.
But don’t worry, fellow Reserve cardmembers. You don’t need to apply for another Reserve account to get the 747 metal card. Amex will send you one at no extra charge. You simply have to request the card. Here’s how to do that on the app and Amex’s website. The card is available only through August 3.
(Not yet a Delta Reserve cardholder? Learn here how to apply for the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card or visit this page for the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card.)
You will need your current Reserve card to complete the process, so take a minute and grab it from your wallet.
Also, ordering a replacement does not affect your current card until you activate the replacement card. Shop as normal.
Request a Delta Reserve 747 Metal Card on the Amex App
I placed my request on the Amex app ASAP this morning. Basically, you order a replacement card and select different card art. Here’s how I did it. You will need your current Reserve card to complete the process, so take a minute and grab it from your wallet.
First, open your Amex app. Select your Reserve card. On the next screen tap “Account.” You’ll see a list of options. Tap “Replace a Card.”
On the “Replace a Card” screen, tap your applicable Reserve card. Then you’ll see another screen. Tap “Continue to Replace Card.” Select “Change Card Design” as your reason for replacement and tap “Continue.”
Select the “Boeing 747” art. Tap “Continue.” I was asked for the three-digit code on the back of my Reserve card (not the four-digit code on the front). Tap “Continue.” The next screen asks you to type in whatever answer you have your mother’s maiden name. Tap “Continue.”
Confirm that your delivery address is correct and tap “Replace Card.” You’ll see a replacement card order confirmation. Tap “Done.”
Request a Delta Reserve 747 Metal Card on the Amex Website
Okay, so I can take you only so far on this one. My wife loves purple — the color of her current Reserve card. So, she will not be getting the Delta 747 Reserve card. But here’s how you can get the process started on the Amex website.
Log in to your account and select “Account Services.”
Then choose “Replace a Card.”
Select the card and then choose “I want to change my Card’s design.”
That’s where I stopped. But I’m confident you can handle it from there — I believe in you. 🙂
Current members can easily order the new 747 metal version of the Delta Reserve card for free. The process takes a couple of minutes. It’s just the week-ish long wait that’s difficult!
