All the outstanding 2013 discounts links that got you one month of Delta unlimited use for $28 are now dead and just send you to GoGoAir.com. So we are left with what Delta.com and GoGo offers us – sorta. First GoGo:
Here is their list of prices. All of them are for all types of devices unlike the past when they broke them out mobile vs laptops. Having said that, there is still a 24h mobile device only option:
I will get into why this really is one of the best options soon but keep THIS $8 mobile link in mind as we go on.
If we start at Delta and we want a 24 hr pass we can get a $2 discount over the GoGoAir.com price of $16. Not a huge discount but still a savings.
Also at Delta something not an option at GoGo is a one year pass or to be specific a 365 day use pass. As you can see it is basically $40 a month and if you are going to use GoGo on Delta for 10 months or more this is a better price than the monthly Delta Traveler pass rate.
Now let’s get to the math. First off the cheapest choice for short term use is the $8/24 hr mobile only pass. If you have an Android phone it is simple to use THIS trick to either via USB or BlueTooth to just get your internet from your phone to your PC. I think there are I-Phone options that are similar so if any I-Phone people can chime in please do to help readers. To see how good a deal this is, you would have to fly and use GoGo more than 6 days or more, that is 6 / 24h periods to get to the price of the Delta $49.95 one month Traveler pass. Or, for the yearly, more than 60 days. You can see the real simple value of this choice.
Also a data point, a reader told me but I have not verified that buying any pass from Delta.com will NOT code as a Delta purchase so I doubt you can use this for say AMEX non-Delta Platinum card airline travel reimbursement. If you have another experience this year please comment below on the blog. – René
