Summertime in Detroit still means making the most of your free time and soaking up Detroit culture with family and friends in the process.

How about hitting The Henry Ford Museum before the ultra-cool exhibit Rock Stars, Cars and Guitars closes on Sept. 7; or upping your culture cred with a concert by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in September? (FYI, single tickets for the DSO in September just went on sale this week).

Thanks to two just-released incentives from American Express, it’s possible to secure some summer fun (at a discount!) and earn coveted frequent flier miles on Delta Air Lines faster than ever, redeemable for vacations later.

Here’s a quick summary of what American Express rolled out August 1 for its Delta SkyMiles Credit Card holders:
