This sale also works in reverse in case you want to get out of Portland or Seattle for fewer miles than normal. Delta doesn’t have an award chart, so you have to just take their word for it that this is a “sale”,…

Last Day for 60,000 Mile Delta Amex Refer-a-Friend Offer

Since you can usually only get a particular American Express sign-up bonus once, you want to be sure and get it when the bonus is as big as possible. Sometimes the public sign-up bonuses shoot up across the board and other times the best bonuses are only available via targetted or refer-a-friend offers. Right now there isn’t an increased public sign-up available for the Delta Amex Cards, but through tonight (1/31/18), there are some increased bonuses available via refer-a-friend links.…

Pick a New Airline to Fly With Your Emotional Support Horse

If you fly with some regularity, you have probably seen an emotional support animal or two or twenty on your journey. Emotional support animals can provide a tremendous service in helping their owners stay calm and complete a variety of life tasks, like flying, that might otherwise be too stressful to manage successfully. However, there are also those who use the ability to fly with an emotional support animal for no additional charge under the Air Carrier Access Act as a…

Refer Friends to 70,000 Mile Delta Amex Offer

If you aren’t yet an airline mileage free agent scooping up the good bonuses wherever you find them, then I’d put that on the list of 2018 things to work on accomplishing as staying loyal to one program just because that is what you know best is likely is costing you some pretty good opportunities to travel more for less. I personally ignored the Delta SkyMiles program for far too many years and missed out on some good opportunities as…

Flash Sale: Discounted Delta Business Class Awards to Europe Available Now

I’ve become a Delta SkyMiles fan over the past year or two, not because they are perfect (they very much aren’t), but because SkyMiles can be far more valuable for award travel than I thought. Multiple times in the past year they have beat what the other programs can offer in terms of how many miles it takes to get where we want to be on a reasonable itinerary. In other words, they are now a very solid tool in my…

OFFERS EXPIRED! Last Chance for Up To 70,000 Delta SkyMiles OFFERS EXPIRED!

DELTA SKYMILES OFFERS REFERENCED BELOW HAVE EXPIRED! For the first time ever, the airline miles I think we have used the most this year in our travels are Delta SkyMiles. In fact, we used up every Delta mile that we had and then had to transfer in some more from the Amex Membership Rewards program. I never thought I would find myself doing that since for years I bought into the “SkyPesos” moniker for SkyMiles, but this year I have…

How To Use 30% Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus to Virgin Atlantic
