First today’s winner of more GoGo Internet stuff, and a Delta Points luggage tag is: # 74 – Elissa

Congratulations and I will contact you via e-mail.

Now to the next point about SPG cards. This has been a strange week for cards. Official links have changed, “wild links” have come, gone, come back, morphed, and then others were dead in hours. I have no idea what these banks are thinking or what they will match or honor! It is just crazy.

I can however tell you this. I am one of the few bloggers who offer Canadian points card links on my blog. The offers for Delta Flyers north of the border are not as great as your cousins to the south, but such is life. What I have seen as of late is this. Both the official links, Canadian SPG, and the other wild links are all reducing what they offer by 5,000 points for the personal and the business Canadian cards! This seems to be following a trend by banks to officially lower new card bonus this year.

So will SPG cards in the USA go lower soon too? Who knows, but at least you now know what I know and the SPG card is a great card to have! – Rene

  1. One of the few cards that I don’t hesitate to pay the annual fee is the SPG. Well worth it just for the 2 stays/5 nights per card towards status. Still keep hoping that I’m gonna be a random drawn winner soon!
