There will be NO SWAG Saturday this week; there will be no Fireside chat either this week. There will be this post and that is it. Let me explain.
This has been a unique year in the affiliate space, that is the banks supporting us bloggers with their cards. Unfortunately, without going into specifics, the regulations and requirements are becoming increasingly challenging. I get this.
I have been blogging for the better part of 3 years. American Express has been a huge supporter and partner with Delta Points and I really appreciate all they have done for me and I hope and I know they appreciate all I have brought to AMEX. However, they have decided, at the current time, that Delta Points is no longer a good partner for them. So on Monday morning Delta Points will no longer be able to offer AMEX cards including Delta AMEX cards.
What does that mean for Delta Points? Really nothing at all as far as the blog goes. I have no intention to stop blogging, to change how I blog, to cancel my Delta Reserve cards. Bottom line, I will keep doing what I do and bringing you the blog as I always do. Nothing here will change including my support of the Delta AMEX cards as I will keep using them as I always do to earn my Delta MQMs as well as my MQD exempt spending as long as AMEX and Delta let me do this!
So is that it? No. First let me from the bottom of my heart thank all those who have e-mailed me or just clicked on one of Delta Points AMEX links and have supported the blog. What else? Here is the deal. There are 5000+ who subscribe to Delta Points and some 4000+ who follow on twitter. I am not asking all 9000+ to ALL get an AMEX card today from THIS list (but wow would that shock AMEX, right)! But if you happen to need one, or were thinking of adding one before the changes on the way for 1MAY, this weekend will be more than likely the last chance you have to support Delta Points via AMEX links I am sad to say.
No matter what, come Monday, expect to see the same Delta Points blog as well as the Delta Mileage Run blog you have come to expect from me. My HUGE thanks readers for being part of the blog! – René
