American Express Co. introduced the platinum version of its Delta SkyMiles credit card.

The platinum card gives customers a free companion ticket each year the card is renewed, 10,000 bonus points for signing up, and 5,000 points for using the card the first time. It confers 10,000 points in each year a card member spends $25,000 or more and double points for buying Delta tickets or vacation packages.

The annual fee is $135, or $80 for Amex customers who have other gold or platinum cards.
