  1. Is there anyway to use the free companion certificate even though I don’t have the Amex Delta card anymore? I accidentally canceled it prematurely and didn’t realize in the T&Cs that you MUST purchase your ticket and the companion ticket using the Amex Delta card? I have a lame duck certificate that’s now about to go to waste. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

  2. I sure hope you’re going to play Arcadia Bluffs on your Michigan golf junket. It will make you think you’re at Pebble Beach (but with no ocean surf)!

  3. Hi Rene,

    I just saw this Delta news on another site. Know anything about it? “Effective September 1, Delta SkyMiles members will earn fewer award and elite-qualifying miles (EQMs) for some “unpublished fares” tickets

  4. I really like the travel check list. I was just thinking of a couple items that could be added to this. I’m thinking of taking photos of the contents of my luggage to help back up any lost bag claim. Also I usually will go into my GPS and enter each hotel and other places I’m going. Then when I get to the rental car I can just pull up recent locations and pick one. Saves time and effort on that end. I know there are always things that differ by person.
