Are the American Express-Wheels Up benefits worth getting a Platinum card for $695?
American Express is adding Wheels Up as its Premium Private Jet Program partner, replacing Delta Private Jets. Wheels Up purchased Delta Private Jets in January 2020, and the existing American Express – DPJ partnership was set to expire on Aug. 31. Delta Private Jets had been the exclusive partner of the AX Premium Private Jet Program since 2016. But should you get the Amex Platinum card just to buy Wheels UP?
As it looks ahead towards its IPO via SPAC merger, Wheels Up reports revenues, memberships and flying is up while its financial loss is down
Wheels Up for the first time reported quarterly results. They come ahead of its planned merger with SPAC Aspirational Consumer Lifestyle Corp. Once completed, Wheels Up will trade on the NYSE under the ticker symbol UP.
The transition from Delta Private Jets branding to Wheels Up appears to be more or less complete as the former’s website is now a redirect to its new owner
In December 2019, Wheels Up announced it was acquiring Delta Private Jets. The deal also made Delta Air Lines a significant minority shareholder.
Offer benefits are worth at least $13,185 on a $150,000 jet card providing an 8.8% added value
Delta Private Jets has teamed with Saks Fifth Avenue in an “Open the door to luxury” promotion. The offer targets customers of the retailer.
The offer is valid through Dec. 31, 2019. It provides extra value for all Delta Private Jets products: jet cards, on-demand charter, and its Sky Access empty leg program.
