Before I started blogging it was fun to win some swag from all sorts of bloggers now and then. I did not win much, but loved it anyway. I have had lots of good feedback about the travel swag I give away here on the blog now and then.

To that end, and to make it simple, I am pleased to announce each Saturday at 1:PM EST I will have a post with a travel related drawing you can enter and the winner will be picked at some point on Sunday night each week. I will lay down the T&C (that is terms and conditions) that will apply each week and then link back here to make it simple.

* T&C are: You can only enter once per person. You can, with separate e-mail addresses, enter more than once per IP or home. If you enter more than once you will be disqualified. You must use a valid e-mail or you will be disqualified. You must have a USA mailing address (Hawaii & Alaska are fine) for the prize to be sent to. will be used to pick the winner. Once the winner is picked and the winning post is published, no other entries will count, but will be posted. You have one week to respond via e-mail or you will forfeit your prize.

There will be one more HUGE part to this and why you want to MAKE SURE you take part each week. The winner each week, will also qualify for my Delta Silver Medallion Status that I plan to give away in July. If for any reason I can NOT give this huge prize away again, I will substitute a nice prize like a Samsung tablet etc. Either way, if you are a weekly winner, you will have a chance to win a great prize each year in July!

To kick this fun new weekly feature off I want to make this big. So, I will be giving away a bunch of stuff this week. You will have a chance for ONE of the below:

✮ A set of iGo’s Noise Canceling headphones

✮ A TSA luggage lock & laptop USB splitter

✮ A $25 gift card

✮ A $25 SkyMall gift card

I will e-mail the winners and winner #1 gets 1st choice, number #2 what is remaining and so on! So for a chance at these goodies you need to comment on the blog by clicking the word “comments” below and tell me what you think of this new weekly feature and the big prize giveaway in July. Do you like it? Will you visit the blog each Saturday to take part? Let me know! – René

  1. JGfromOC

    This is pretty awesome – and very generous. I visit your blog often because of the great DL content. This is just a bonus! 🙂

  2. Awesome! Reading your blog is profitable in many ways. 🙂

  3. Umm yeah I could use silver status so ha that is pretty cool.

  4. Great idea – I love winning prizes. Thanks for the generosity!

  5. I love it. I got a luggage tag, and it looks great on my bag

  6. I will definitely check in every Saturday, as I check DeltaPoints everyday! This will be fun, thanks!!

  7. I read the blog every day including Saturday and Sunday….

  8. Sounds cool. If we win the Silver Medallion Status in July,can we give it to someone else since we already have status?


  9. Joseph M

    In a word Awesome!
    And I must tell you I am a Kryptonium Medallion and therefore not easily impressed. 🙂

  10. Bruce Nightingale

    Love it great idea. I love the site. Just not to happy with Delta lately. But that is another story. Keep the prizes coming.

  11. You are a great guy! I read all your posts!

  12. robbabroad

    Newbie here, and I’m absorbing as fast as I can. Love the blog and will keep coming back!

  13. Andrew P

    I think this is great! I generally catch up on my RSS feeds on the weekend, so this is perfect!

  14. Nemo took my power away 🙁 I need a vacation

  15. Oh WOW
    To reiterate, YOU are AMAZING!!!
    I love your blog it is the MOST meaningful one out there to me,
    Being a true Delta Lass 🙂
    So I’m sending up tons of wishes 🙂

  16. Linda S.

    I think it’s a great feature; I’ll check it out on Saturday afternoons.

  17. I will absolutely visit. Your drawings are the only ones I win!

  18. Do we like it? What’s not to like!? You’ve always been amazing with the swag you give away — a first class act if you pardon the pun.

  19. Awesome! Love it. Will def be a part of this.

  20. Ok I’m in for this week…may not be able to enter every Saturday but great idea !

  21. Sweet giveaway. I check the blog everyday regardless…

  22. Very generous. I came in from clearing snow in the driveway to find this as a potential reward. Might be better than the hot chocolate I owe myself for clearing a path for the dog too.

  23. It’s a shame non-US residents can’t take part. I would and would surely pay for the postage…

  24. I make reading travel blogs part of my evening routine, I think it is very generous of you to do this.

  25. This is great! As a Delta flier, you provide the best tips. Thanks and keep up the good work. Hope I win.

  26. Giveaways are fun, but I think the extra prize is drool-worthy.

  27. Thanks for the giveaways, I will be back each week. Swag is great.

  28. Great feature! Can’t wait to qualify for the big prize.

  29. I think its a great idea and some miles related fun on otherwise slow weekends!

  30. Wow! This is great. I love ur tips for delta!

  31. Pick me. Love anything free because I spend all my money (pts) on travel.

  32. Amazing! I visit the blog regardless, but this makes visiting even better! Thanks for your hard work 🙂

  33. Awesome, thanks Rene’. I’ve started to look for Delta Points bag tags (and hope to have one myself sometime).

  34. Rene, this is awesome. Thanks for letting us in on the swag.

  35. Awesome prize giveaway. I’m already silver–give away GM. AND Roll Tide.

  36. Sounds like great news! You provide great (invaluable!) information here and other places. Thank you!

  37. Great idea, looking forward to visiting your blog more regularly!

  38. Amanda S

    Great! I will definitely be watching my reader on saturdays!

  39. Awesome! I will make a point to enter every Saturday.

  40. awesome… I visit the blog ANYWAY…these contests just a bonus!


  41. Would be great as a reminder to visit every Sat. Thanks!

  42. Wow! I’m excited for this great new feature! Thanks for your great tips about Delta!

  43. Since I will loose Delta Silver status at the end of the year, maybe I could win for next year!

  44. I would be visiting every Saturday anyways but freebies are always a nice perk. Love the blog, keep up the great job!

  45. Thanks for your generosity. I am and will remain a reader of your blog.

  46. It’s great and hopefully further increase the readership of your blog. If I am around on Saturday, I’ll try to remember to enter. Unfortunately, I never win but who knows – maybe my luck will change. 🙂

  47. Jennifer

    It is amazing! I love it and I love your blog!

  48. Who doesn’t like a chance to win free swag?!? Thanks Rene

  49. Great idea. Another reason to look forward to the weekend.

  50. This is a great idea! I love your blog, but this way, I will make extra-sure i visit!

  51. This is so generous of you Rene AND a great marketing tool to make sure people ( and me!) come and “visit” you at least once a week!

    Keep up the great work!

  52. Love the new series Rene! I will make sure to be hear every Saturday and would love to win the status. Thanks for the great blog!

  53. Annie Tang

    Love this! Will definitely be here every Saturday. Thanks!

  54. This is a great idea! So much fun!! Thanks Rene!

  55. Aaron Wheadon

    New visitor and impressed so far. Great blog, I will be back!

  56. Christopher K

    Would love to get some iGo headphones.

  57. Mill Creek Don

    Great swag…..which goes well with a great blog.

  58. I love it that you like to share stuff with us readers! Great Blog with tons of great information.

  59. Great idea! I visit your blog everyday and have found things that have really helped me make the best use of my miles and status, so for sure I’ll be with you on Saturdays.

  60. Linda K. T.

    Super idea! I look forward to reading your posts, and now I look forward to Saturdays!

  61. Elaine F

    Thanks for the contest – always happy to read your blog and try to win!

  62. Easy peasy! Now I get to work Delta Points into my Saturday blog rotation. Thanks!

  63. I love the idea! I visit the blog every day anyway so this is another good reason to check back.

  64. phill gold

    I think this new feature is AWESOME! and of course, looking forward to Jul for the big raffle. And I will check the blog on Saturday, just like every other day…:-)


  65. Great way to get people coming back on a weekly basis. Silver status is great but since I fly enough to get silver every year the tablet sounds like a great substitute.

  66. René,

    Wow, I was excited about the luggage tags! The weekly give away sounds great, and I like how winning qualifies you for the next, big silver round!

  67. I am new to the travel hacking world but already your website is a part of my daily routine. I find it enjoyable and enlightening and its great to see you giving your avid followers even more to look forward to!

  68. Michael H.(oldfox)

    Love the blog and the idea.Love how you try to energize the blog as well as providing great info for Delta lovers. i will always read the blog because I love Delta even though I don’t have Medallion status anymore……. ugh!!!

  69. A weekly giveaway sounds great! Would love a pair of noise canceling headphones:) Thanks for all the great information on your blog.

  70. Love the idea! I’m sure I can find somewhere to go to test out a new set of noise canceling headphones. Thanks for a chance to win some great SWAG:)

  71. Great addition! love the blog, and now…love it more!

  72. Crossing my fingers that I win. Thanks for a great blog Rene

  73. Free stuff I can actually use? I like it! And I try to visit every day, Saturdays included!

  74. Love it! Thanks so much! Hope to win delta elite status.

  75. Sterling

    Informative blog and prizes too, I’m in!

  76. Isaac B.

    Sounds awesome! Love the idea and love your posts

  77. Abhishek D

    I love this new weekly feature and am looking forward to the big prize giveaway in July!

  78. I like the idea. Free is always a good thing ! There is no need to entice me about looking each Saturday. I review you site daily, as it is required reading for everything Delta.

  79. The blog is great, more free stuff just makes it better!

  80. JP Traveler

    Awesome idea. Really enjoy reading your posts!

  81. You do a great job- have gotten a lot of insightful information from you. Love the idea- and can’t wait for my new status 🙂

  82. Zhaolin Chen

    I’ll definitely visit for free stuff

  83. Thanks for the updates & tips.the system is pretty complicated & you make it easier to get rewarded.

  84. Yes I will definitely visit on Saturdays. Heck I visit almost every day anyway. Thanks for the great prizes Rene

  85. Ann Firetine

    Love, love, love the idea! I always read about the giveaways but don’t usually enter. I’ll now make a point of entering every week so I can see my name appear in July – woohoo! Thanks for all the great info.

  86. Carol Blue

    Thanks so much for the generosity and the TERRIFIC idea!

  87. Cool! Count me in; great contests, especially the July one.

  88. lobstergreg

    I think it’s a great 1dea! As a frequent traveler and having discovered your blog and site, I visit just about everyday. I definitely will make it a Saturday look for! Thank you again for your kindness to road travelers everywhere.

  89. Sheila Englebardt

    I think this is awesome. Look forward to your new blog posts and now have another reason to do so. Saturdays now become favorite days!

  90. Very generous of you; an interesting way to drum up traffic. I have weighed doing giveaways before to increase visits, but holding off for the best timing

  91. Awesome swag! I read your blog everyday, so it won’t be a problem to read it every Saturday!

  92. Fun!! Who doesn’t like free stuff? 🙂 Thanks for all you do!

  93. Mark Lindey

    Rene, thanks for the contest. Some general topics I would love to see come up on your blog in the future.
    -Did the GoGo price increase cause anyone to stop subscribing? (Also, too bad you can stream anything on their anyway)
    -Worst Delta airport connection airports (Mnpls)
    -Best Sky Club locations
    -Best restaurants in Delta hubs (One Flew South)
    Thanks again.

  94. Christine Pincince

    i look at this site every day…saturdays will be a bonus day! thanks. what happens to the contest random spin when you have over 100?

  95. Thank you Rene! I had to call the International Reissue Desk the other night and of course I thought of you. They were incredibly flexible…

    Phil Smith

  96. Uri Hadelsberg

    I would love to win. This is an awesome website! I already visit the blog on a daily basis, so adding more prizes is something I really look forward to!


  97. Randy White

    Great idea, but you need a substitute prize for Silver Status as many of us have status.

  98. Who doesn’t love free gifts, large and small?!? Thanks for making me smile.

  99. James Kraft

    I enjoy reading your blog…to be honest I have not used my miles as effectively as I should have and it’s great to learn new ways to get more out of them. So, yes I will absolutely return each week for the contest and to stay informed.


  100. I enjoy reading the blog and getting tips on getting mile, status or free stuff your promo for status is great, I lost it as of this month so it would be nice to regain it in July.

  101. HeavenlyJane

    I never win so maybe my luck is about to change?? Thanks.

  102. Thanks for doing this on Saturdays. It is a great day to catch up on the blog when the week has flown by.

  103. I love SWAG, especially a Silver nomination!

  104. Adrian R

    I like this new feature because it’s predictible and leads up to a nice grand prize.

  105. Yours is the only travel blog I read with any regularity. Haven’t won anything yet, but that’s okay…I don’t read to win things so I’ll keep reading, regardless! Great of you to share you swag! Thanks for keeping us informed on all things Delta!

  106. Absolutely LOVE this idea. Keep up the great work!

  107. I’m all for contests. Bring on the weekly prizes. Thanks

  108. This is a fantastic new feature. Great way to get people to click over to the blog from Google Reader or from the email subscription. Good thinking on this one and super generous to your readers!

  109. I’ll be sure to check the blog out each weekend!

  110. It is a good idea to keep us connected to the blog.

  111. Barbara S.

    Very generous…thanks for the opportunity!

  112. Sarah S.

    I try to read your blog daily…and this will make it “more funner”.

  113. Big crush on Delta…no smoking babe…i wonder if she knows how “smoking hot” she is….? Your blog is a daily read for me!!!!

  114. Charles Webb

    Nice contest. Do not need Silver, though. thanks

  115. I’m totally digging the new Saturday Giveaway feature. Will definitely put it into my calendar reminders. Silver Elite is an awesome prize come July.

  116. Very generous gifts. I’ll make sure to check in on Saturdays!

  117. Sounds like a good idea to me! Not goin to say no to free stuff…

  118. Great idea! I’ll look each Saturday. Hope I win.

  119. Kristin S

    Good luck to everyone, but here’s hoping I win! 🙂

  120. Hope I’m in time this week. Will definitely be back and appreciate all that you do to keep the rest of us up-to-date. Shirley

  121. Philip Barie

    Winning would make my day. this is a great idea. I’ll play every week, now that I figured out how!

  122. Matt MSP

    Man I could go for some headphones! You are so generous with teh swag.

  123. I’ll definitely read the Saturday post, as well as all thru the week. You’re becoming well known – a DL FA from AMS to DTW Friday noticed my DeltaPoints briefcase tag!!

  124. Christine

    Question: do you have to comment by a certain time each week? Is there a cut-off on number of entries? I don’t know if I’m correct in thinking that the latest choices have shown a selection between 1 and around 180, give or take. Love the idea!

  125. Sounds like a great idea! I’d love to win the big prize. I had silver status last year, and enjoyed those perks. I can see why people get used to having status!

  126. Wonderful idea. Will look forward to seeing who wins. Maybe me!

  127. Read the blog daily and these things just make it better

  128. Bill Finger

    Good idea for the weekly contest. Might stop flying someday, so the Silver Meallion might be just the ticket. Thanks!

  129. Stuart Ratliff

    This is a great new feature of the site. Love reading the site.

  130. A great blog and now it’s just gotten better, yeah for the swag!

  131. Pingback: Delta Points SWAG Saturday giveaway week #2 - Delta Points

  132. Best perk is MQM being added to your account

  133. OMG. What a great ski trip. I am so jealous. Would love to win, but best thing about your blog, I can live vicariously through your blog. I just love me Delta’s free baggage. No nickel and dime ing you to death.

  137. I enjoy reading your blog, and it would be sweet to win some stuff.

  138. Rene: I use my Delta skymiles Platinum AMEX card. I am going to get the Capital One card as I like the no transaction fee for foreign exchange.
    I hope this is how you enter to win the Swag.
    One suggestion for newbies like me, publish a “dictionary” of terms…i.e SPG = starwood etc.

  139. I read you daily and and itching to be a winner!

  140. Rene, I dig your blog and although i’m a Newbie’I’ve been able to get almost 90K miles in less than a year with my Amex Delta Skymiles card following your advice. Your blog rocks!

  141. Christine Pincince

    it is still sunday in florida..doest that count? I read your blog all the time and feel so far out of the happy loop. what you do is amazing and generous.

  146. I like the AMEX Platinum Personal Delta best….great perk taking 2 bags free, totally worth the fee. I make it back the first month.

  147. Charles Webb

    Thanks for the tips and entry to win. I like DL Platinum AX for the companion certificate (yes, I really am one who uses this EACH YEAR). As well, the MQM spending boost works for me. Thanks again

  148. I love my Amex Gold Delta because the card gives me so many perks and after reading your blog I’ve learned to step up to the Platinum which I just did, (just haven’t gotten it in the mail as of yet.) Priority Boarding and of course free baggage are just many of the perks. I always bring a carry on so I’m always golden.

  149. Jeffrey Weisenauer

    I like the Platinum personal delta card best. The annual fee is low and the rewards are great.

  150. Ed Coleman

    Delta AMEX Reserve because of the MQM’s

  151. I like and have the platinum card, as the rewards are better.

  152. Platinum business, Amex platinum reserve, Amex personal gold. But frankly, I don’t know if I’m getting the maximum benefit out of the cards.

  153. That’s a Delta Gold AMEX, personal card btw, not business.

  154. I like my Delta Gold Amex Personal card for the free checked bags and the priority boarding.

  155. Like Delta Platinum for the free baggage and the ability to attain Medallion status.

  156. I love using the delta skymiles card. I just talked my Husband into applying, and he will get 45,000 sky miles after meeting 5,000 spend in 6 months. Can’t beat that with a stick

  157. dot cahill

    nice giveaway — i use the amex plat the most esp for the lounges… and miles for international flights…

  158. Ink plus allows access to lounges and would be my preference.

  159. I’m ready for my prize. if not this week then next week!

  160. Barbara S.

    Everybody likes to get something for free…right???? I know i do!!!

  161. Bruce S.

    You never know…you might win!!!! Gotta try!!!!

  164. This looks like fun, thanks for doing this…

    Since I’m already silver (that is a long silly story), is it possible to have the status given to someone else if I should “win?”

  165. I agree that winning is FUN, but it doesn’t happen often enough.

    You make it sound like Hawaii and Alaska aren’t really part of the USA! I can tell you, Alaska is definitely part of the USA.

  166. @Deb – really? You get to be a part in HA & AK! I love Hawaii (went there for 10th anniversary and can not wait to visit Alaska)! – Rene

  167. I have never done a mileage run. Don’t know if I would.

  170. Hi Rene- I am new to collecting frequent flyer points, now that my children are in college far away (Atlanta and Chicago) When I travel I carry 1. my Delta Skymiles Amex and 2. Chase Southwest Visa card. Hope I dd this right! I have learned a lot from your blog!

  171. I leave for Italy on Thursday on my way to Platinum and possibly taking a shot at Diamond and it is all your fault. LOL I would put your prizes to use right away.

  172. Pick me, pick me. I’m due to win something someday!

  173. Thanks Rene, sharing the blog with all my hard core Delta loyal co-workers. Thanks

  174. DeltaGoldLass

    Sitting up front next to a person who takes off their shoes which frees bare feet which
    Have a miasmic stink of parmasean cheese
    And proceeds to go to sleep snoring like a buzz
    There isn’t a single seat I can move to cause all other seats are takes And
    When the FA smelled it she tried to awaken the passenger by taking their food order but
    Mumbles were heard amidst miasmia
    The FA comisserated with me
    Yes, this happened
    Ooooo I hope I win this one 🙂

  175. jay rubinstein

    Always a useful prize. I hope I win.

  176. I have never had or used one of the certificates. I live in the Midwest and Delta does not have a strong presence in the Kansas City area. I’m headed to Paris soon for a class and would love to have the charger for my trip. Thanks.

  177. Hey Rene

    I was able to use this cert for my daughter and she was able to come with me on a business trip. As a matter of fact we are in COS now waiting to go home. This is definitely an awesome perk and I really enjoy having the platinum card, this is my first year– hopefully it’s not a perk that goes away. I love all your advice from a fellow Hoosier!

  178. Fantastic! Always read your blog anyway, but prizes make it even more worthwhile, though I’ve never won anything.

  179. All great swag, Rene, thanks so much for the opportunity to win.

  180. Don in ATL

    That’s very nice of you Rene. I like reading your blog anyway, so now it’s double fun.

  181. Gee, this is great and I will look forward to visiting each Saturday!

  182. It’s awesome and I will definitely visit each Saturday! Thanks, Rene.

  183. I enjoy reading the history and rationale behind each offering as well as playing the game by entering into the contest you have called Swag Saturdays. I’ll definitely read your blog on Saturdays and do enjoy reading your blog posts as they are posted. Now that I am in the Southwest, the points would come in mighty handy for travel. Thanks.

  214. Reading your posts makes all of us winners, the SWAG is a nice bonus.

  215. Cool! Gadgets! (Sound of drool splashing onto tablet is heard in the background)

  216. like this, will be fun to see what prizes there are

    I read your posts, strangely, way more often than I think I will. I love travel accessories- maybe because it gets me thinking I’ll be traveling soon- kind of like those jeep or SUV commercials that make you think you’ll be way out somewhere- with your car- on top of a roadless mountain… Anyway, thanks for the super cool opportunity!

  218. Living in a Delta hub makes me a big fan of your blog. Thanks for your balanced commentary on all things Delta. I follow your blog in my reader.

  219. I have never had a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, so I would enjoy trying a pair. I think they would be great for frequent travelers.

    I definitely frequent this site for not only a chance to win a prize, but also to learn about different travel opportunities. I hope to win something one day!

  220. I got in on those Z class fares to Europe this Summer! Would love to have those headphones and additional goodies! With your help and guidance, I made Platinum for the first time. Many MKE to SFO last fall. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Rene, just did a quick trip to Tokyo thru Haneda. 767 BC seats need to be updated.

    Answer to you question is no I dont have the credit card oe NC headphones.



  222. Would love to win the noise-canceling headphones as I wear hearing aids and can not understand most movie dialogue with the roar of the plane 🙁 : (. Love your column, as you delve into topics not seen on other blogs!

  224. OK, I admit it… I am a procrastinator, except when it comes to vacations and traveling! I tend to procrastinate with packing, but then my adrenalin kicks in and I get to the airport in plenty of time!

    I love your blog and would welcome some extra swag in the way of 54 Amazon dollars. This summer I just finished using 50,000 points to book the Andaz in Maui 🙂 and I took advantage of the American Express Dailey Giveaways and landed a certificate for 5 nights lodging, also in Hawaii. Looks like a week of (almost) free nights, and of course, I used American Airlines miles to fly for $10 RT. Yippee!

  228. Debbie Carr

    Have to say 54 Amazon bucks would be nice:) I just booked my summer vacation in in Maui Hawaii using credit card points:) 35,000 American airlines points with $10 RT. 50,000 Hyatt points for 2 nights at the Andaz in Maui, and I took advantage of the American Express Daily getaways and landed a 5 night resort stay, also in Maui. Love the blog and the use of almost free vacations!!!

    What a great way to kick off the summer! Can’t wait!

    So far this is a very informative blog. I enjoy the daily/weekly Facebook and email info. (And I’ve learned a few things!)

  236. I love this site. Tons of great info. thanks Rene

  237. I love Delta’s customer service! They have been great to me as a Diamond member and the Diamond line, the gate agents, the SkyClub agents and especially tweeting the folks at Delta Assist have all helped me so much. I’d like to reach 250,000 MQMS this year to secure Diamond status through 2016 and the 15,000 MQM giveaway would be a great boost.

    What a great offer. I just began following you but am already a fan. Thanks so much!

  246. I have a Swiss duffel bag I use for travel – it has wheels so it can be a roller or throw over the shoulder. Great for airports. Downside they did not think of is the end of the bag with wheels gets worn and dirty – so I need a new bag too!!!

  247. I just started to use a backpack and will never go back to a brief case

  248. Yes, you really have a great blog and I could use a new backpack as well.

  249. I love it! It’s like the Black Friday sales – only it’s not Friday and I don’t owe any money!
    Thanks for the offer.

    Thanks to my Diamond status, I have passes, but I want to help you get your numbers up. Appreciate the work you do.

  267. I have never gone for miles via a credit card, but, I’m going to start doing it this year! I really like the sound of the Amex business platinum card. I think I’ll apply right now!
