One of my fellow BA bloggers “New Girl in the Air“, and a reader via email (thank you), talked about the 250 bonus skymiles if you spend $250 at their shopping portal by 25AUG2012  – YAWN!

But then today I login and see they are offering 500 bonus (notice additional) Skymiles if you spend $250! If you find something resalable at breakeven btw you can max out at 5000 bonus miles.

And, on top of that, for shopping at Walmart they upped the miles  to  2 .  Also  4  Skymiles at JC Penny’s and 6 Sears. Now this deal is in no way “Text Alert” worthy (I hope you all got the one yesterday btw) and is not even FM worthy to say “lets go spend $10,000!”

This little deal is just to rack up some extra Skymiles on stuff you are going to buy for the kids or whatever going back to school. Rather than just walking into one of these stores, look at what you are going to buy online, start at the shopping portal, spend the money, have it set for IN STORE PICKUP (almost always FREE), then just go pick up your order! Simple. Plus, for Walmart, many things like electronics etc. don’t seem to be excluded from this deal unlike the higher paying links from sites like Big Crumbs etc.

If my math is right it works out this way. If you, say, have something to buy at SEARS that will cost you $250, and you pay for it with your Delta AMEX, you will get 500 bonus for the purchase, 250 for using the AMEX card, 6x for the current extra bonus point deal. All in 2250 Skymiles. No “OH MY” kind of deal, but no longer a YAWN ! (TIP – keep in mind this site is run by Cartera Commerce – do SCREEN SHOTS of everything so if/when you don’t get your miles you can complain and get them)

Also, you still have time to “ask Tamara” a TA question by 5PM tonight for a chance to win some DELTA swag. Have a great weekend everyone – René

PS – I have UPDATED my Sunday post about the OPEN savings at OfficeMax. I used my SPG OPEN card and have the charge and credit already posted to my account if you want to check it out!
