Is Delta Always This Awesome?

Thanks to Hurricane Harvey, we have had to cancel our kid-free weekend trip to San Diego. Thank you to all who gave recommendations for that trip, I have saved all of them for when we eventually get to reschedule. Even though we don’t live directly on the Texas coast, with the insane rainfall predictions they were talking about it, didn’t feel right to leave grandparents and our two little kids here to battle potential flood waters, drainage issues, electricity issues, and more while we…

Thousands of Free Delta SkyMiles for Washington State Residents

Free miles are the very best kind, and those who have Washington State addresses in the Delta SkyMiles program are likely in for thousands of free miles if they register for the 12status program which will award 1 Delta SkyMile for every passing yard that the Seattle Seahawks rack up during the regular season. Last year the Seahawks had a total of 4,124 passing yards, so the odds are high they will be in that range again this year. They may also…

How to Advance Yourself Delta SkyMiles

Once upon a time, there were a number of programs that were willing to advance you points before you earned them, or at least let you lock in an award as long as you ponied up the required amount of miles and points before travel started. There are still a few that do that, though to my knowledge fewer than in the past. However, one such program that kicked off this year comes from your Delta Amex cards, as they…

OFFER HAS EXPIRED – Last Chance to Get Approved for 70,000 Easy Delta SkyMiles!

Happy 4th of July to you and yours! After years of talking about it, we finally pulled the trigger on putting together a neighborhood 4th of July Kid’s Parade this year, and it was a really fun way to kick off a day of celebrating of this country and our freedoms. After our little parade to celebrate freedom was complete, it was time to turn our focus back to earning free-ish miles via big sign-up bonuses since the temporarily increased Delta Amex…

Round-Up of Great Credit Card Bonuses Ending Very Soon

There are tons of really good limited time offers wrapping in the coming days, and I am getting an increasing number of questions about which one(s) to apply for before the deadlines. The correct answer to that question is always, it depends. In some cases there is no reason to limit yourself to just one of these offers, but you also can’t realistically go for all of them, so I totally understand narrowing the choices down. In general, I recommend deciding…

Using Up All My Delta SkyMiles and Transferring in More!

Since the Delta Amex Cards upped their sign-up bonuses temporarily through July 5th, I have gotten a few inquires as to how we actually use our SkyMiles and whether the cards are really worth getting. That offer is now expired. Now, there was absolutely a period of time a few years ago that I didn’t really pay attention to Delta miles or their co-branded cards. There were better offers for my needs, SkyMiles were commonly referred to as ‘SkyPesos’, and…

Changing Up Our Short Term Credit Card Strategy

Everyone has their own approach to earning miles and points, especially when it comes to getting and using rewards earning credit cards. My own personal approach in recent years was to take it slow and steady and only pounce on the really good limited time offers. There were lots of reasons for that, including I was simply just busy with a baby and didn’t need to over-complicated my life more than necessary with lots of new cards. However, we are starting…

Flash Sale: Head to Canada for 20,000 Miles or Less!

Yesterday was our first time attending a swim meet, and let’s just say I was woefully unprepared for the realities that a swim meet apparently entails. I showed up at the appointed time with a water bottle, a juice box, C’s swim gear, and a couple towels. I figured we would be there about two hours, watch her swim a few races from one of the countless chairs near the pool, and maybe chat with others watching the meet. Wrong.…

How to Use Your Delta Amex Statement Credits

DELTA SKYMILES OFFERS REFERENCED HERE HAVE EXPIRED. The limited time increased Delta sign-up bonuses are running for a few more weeks until July 5th, and while the 60,000 – 70,000 SkyMiles part of the bonuses may be the most eye-catching part, it isn’t the only component to these increased offers. These cards and bonuses also include a $50 – $100 statement credit when you make a Delta purchase on the card in the first 4 months. This is actually really…

Look Inside the Beautiful Delta Sky Club in Atlanta

I recently flew Delta home from Atlanta and found myself with a few extra minutes at the airport, so I headed to the nearest Delta Sky Club to check it out and maybe grab a ‘free’ bite to eat. You can get complimentary access to Delta Sky Clubs via having a Platinum Card® from American Express when flying Delta with a same-day boarding pass, but even though I have flown Delta a couple times this year, I haven’t used that benefit since it only…
