Let me ask you a question – how confident are you in Delta’s “IT”? I thought so, me too! So please, log on to Delta.com and then go here:

Next, just print or save a PDF that shows what your current totals are with MQMs et al. I am not saying rollover will have any issues, but just that having a “paper trail” just in case is always smart.

q&a

One more thing you should please do today is review the 2013 year end Q&A as well as last year’s 2012 one. Especially take a look at the Q9 point about the NON-Delta Platinum card as I hate to see free money go away (as it will on 01JAN if not redeemed now).

how simple chase makes it to get your freedom bonus each quarter

The last one is something that takes so little time to do and makes my life simple. You can sign-up at Chase to have your Chase Freedom card send you a text reminder to your phone and then all you have to do is text back to be registered for each coming quarter’s bonus categories. I live by my phone and this just works for me. Plus, it reminds me to look at the current quarter to make sure I have maxed out the rewards I can get.

Are there other year end things that we should be looking at as frequent flyers? Shout-out if I have missed any. – René

I will be waiting to get mine as long as I can to use it in Jan2014 when I am flying again. One thing I really miss about GoGo is the 30 day pass. For whatever reason, I tend to fly in bunches. … Continue reading

YMMV – T&C – 20% off Gas card deal

FredW said: “When I checked my T&Cs for Lowe’s it says gift cards excluded.” Craig asked: “Rene … Continue reading

BIG savings via AMEX “Offers for You” tab – Have you looked?

I have both a Delta AMEX Reserve personal card as well as my Delta AMEX Reserve business card. … Continue reading
