The Skymiles shopping portal is having a 5×60,000 Skymiles giveaway. I did enter ONCE by just putting in my Skymiles number and you can too HERE. However, I did NOT download and install the shopping toolbar for “10 Extra” chances to win or the other little tasks, as you can see in the photo clip above, for extra chances to win. Why not?

Both Gary, from a View from the Wing, and myself, were interviewed by NerdWallet for an article regarding Skymiles shopping. In it I said about the toolbar:

René’s take on the Shopping Assistant Toolbar:

“When you click on “I agree,” you are giving up so much control and privacy. Not to mention the fact that there are many times that you are, as talked about already, better off NOT shopping from the Skymiles portal. You do not need a tool bar trying to fight you when you are attempting to earn points from another portal link.”

Now most of the time we, as dedicated captive Delta flyers, do try to earn as many Skymiles from every source we can. This is one of those times I recommend you think twice.  So enjoy the contest as someone has to win the five 60,000 Skymiles grand prizes, just think twice about the toolbar please! – René

 

PS – don’t forget to please VOTE for your pick for the
best new Delta “UP” slogan from readers.
The poll is in the top right hand part of the blog.
It is a tight race to see who wins!
