Kim and I have been throwing around some ideas for a while now about where we should go over the summer.
Last summer, the Michael W Travels family spent 5 Weeks in the Pacific. This year we’re looking at a four-week trip since we also have two shorter trips earlier in the summer.
I thought I found a very good Delta Airlines awards flight redemption. However, when I went to book the flight, I ran into some problems. Continue reading My Very Frustrating Delta Airlines Award Booking Fail
Over winter break the Michael W Travels family spent our time off in Austin, Texas.
This year I found it very hard to find any deals over the break so I decided to use my remaining Southwest points to get to Austin. This seemed like a pretty reasonable deal. For the return flight I had to choose between redeeming JetBlue points or Delta SkyMiles.
I decided to go with Delta Airlines for a couple of reasons. The main reason was that I (and probably many of you) don’t really value SkyMiles very much. Continue reading How I Turned 63,000 SkyMiles Into $2,700 in Delta Airlines Vouchers!
I just received a “private offer” where I can earn up to 25,000 Delta miles.
The way the offer works is that for each SkyMiles partner I earn with, I’ll receive 1,000 bonus miles (with a max amount of 25,000 Delta miles). Continue reading Earn Up To 25,000 Delta Miles With SkyMiles Partners

I’ve had pretty good success when it comes to credit card retention offers over the years. Whenever a card comes up for an annual fee, I always like to call in to see what offers might be available to me… Even if I don’t have any real desire or intention to keep the card open.
When the annual fee came up for my American Express Platinum Delta ® Business card, I knew that I would be closing it. Besides the random Amex Sync or Small Business Saturday offer, this is a card that I never used. There is no way to justify paying any annual fee, let alone $195 for this card. Continue reading Did I Receive A Retention Offer: Amex Biz Platinum Delta Card
Last week I wrote a post and asked if you would Bid With Miles For a Flight Simulator Experience. Here are some other options where you can use miles to bid for a variety of experiences.
Would I use my miles for this kind of thing? No! But, I do think it is interesting to see what Delta would like to offer us as options to spend our miles on.
I’ve received e-mails in the past from Delta about their SkyMiles Auctions but don’t think that I’ve ever actually taken a moment to see what was offered. I probably haven’t looked since the odds are extremely high that I would not bid with my miles for any sort of experience. However, maybe I would be surprised by what I saw…
