The off again and on again digital download option for Sky Magazine is back again for May. You can simply read it online or, for now, download a PDF to read when you want to. I love the download option. BTW Skybonus 5k offer is back with SKYMAY14 but you can also use the referral method and we BOTH get 5k this way. Next, if you have US Air points, and want to fly British Air 1st class, and save O’ like $1000 in tax you really should make the time to read Gary’s post. I am no master on booking US Air but if you need help I would reach out to Adam ASAP to get something booked! Lastly, I just ordered $2000 worth of Visa Debit Gift cards from Staples online (10x$200), starting thanks to my Discover IT card (one reason you should have this card) at their…

This one is sorta a test post. I have gotta yelled at from reader before for posting “deals” that are too high a CPM (nothing worse than working hard to find deals to then get hate mail but I get there are many Angry’s on the web – they get this blog is free to read right?). Anyway, this is developing and seems workable from both DTW & CVG and may be opening up for summer travel as well. It is just an OK price but you do get to visit Milan. You tell me – is it ok to post these if I put VACATION RUN in the post name? Here is the info: Cost ~$927 9,008MQMs at 10.1CPM Bookable on Delta.com DM yields a nice 20,268 Skymiles per CWSI.net! So what say you readers. The one an only Vacation run HUB post or more of the same now…

Welcome to a weekly feature on the Renés Points blog. Each week this series covers in a “rookie” way either a Delta or travel related theme and attempts to break down to a basic level each topic. You can read up on all the previous posts HERE. Now on to this week’s feature. Before you ask, yes I know it is Tuesday today, but tomorrow is the last day of the month and Newsletter day so Rookie day gets moved back to today. Now to our topic. What you see above happens many times on Delta.com. I truly wish when we looked at our full list of reservations that we would see some kind of warning that a change has happened or that we need to look at what has changed or is open to change. Many times the changes are minor or work and you just accept what has…

I started this post as a BWI post as so many have requested that area. But, as these search often go, LAS has a better yield vs cost but then again the one FROM BWI is NO redeye so that has some value. There scattered dates so I put up many shots (too many?). Here are the numbers FROM BWI: Cost $242 4,728MQMs at 5.1CPM Bookable on Delta.com DM yields 10,6382 Skymiles per CWSI.net! Routing via JFK cost a little more but gets you more MQMs at about 5.3CPM. Via SLC is best for same day travel it seems. RDU for LAS as starting point both ways. I will keep working to hit ALL your requests as I can! Thanks – René
