It was fun to be on national TV today on Fox News Happening Now with my fellow BoardingArea blogger Summer from Mommy Points. You can watch the segment below or from THIS link in case you missed it.

Summer, as always, had some great tips. If you are new to the blog my focus is always about Delta Air Lines and how to get the most out of every dollar and point you earn and spend with Delta.

This morning I posted about the fact that often very hard to find Delta “Level 1” award seats from Delta hubs are plentiful even for peak travel this summer. Most times it is all but impossible to find “cheap” Delta points seats unless you are booking a long way out, so this is one not to miss.

The other bit I mentioned is spending your hotel points and if you are a Delta flyer you should be considering the Starwood Preferred guest program. Why? First off, you have the SPG AMEX card <– LINK for personal use as well as the SPG AMEX Business card <– LINK that can help you rack up points for rooms world wide at hotels like Westin, Sheraton and more in the SPG family of hotels. Also, Delta has a great tie-in with the Crossover Rewards program for Delta flyers. It is free to join and you can earn extra points for every dollar you spend.

Lastly I touched on another great tip, that is, not having extra fees added to your travel costs after you get home. So many travel cards charge what is called an international transaction fee for processing a charge in a currency other than US Dollars. The Delta AMEX cards <– LINK  from AMEX do not have these fees so are a good choice for those wanting to earn more SkyMiles.

    How did this come about? Did they contact you or did you hire a P.R. agent?

    • @FNT – LOL I may have to hire TexasYankee as my PR rep. He will work for bump vouchers 😉

  2. Great job both of you! Summer looked a bit nervous but Rene we need to talk, you are a natural on camera. Perhaps you need to consider some video blog posts?

    • @Graydon – Thanks! From someone “in the biz” that is a HUGE compliment.

  3. Nice job Rene. You have a future as a TV personality. Great tip, too, on making sure you use a credit card that does not charge Foreign Transaction Fees. I’ll be using my Delta Platinum AMEX this summer in Ireland! Cheers, Scott

  4. Yep, looked great! I’ll have to get your autograph before you are too much more famous. 😉

  5. Rene’, who did you borrow the jacket & tie from? I didn’t know you owned one!!
