I really appreciate all the input from readers from last week’s giveaway. First let’s get to the winner, via Random.org, that did also retweet the drawing so wins both prizes and that winner is #115 “laptoptravel” who says:
“Keeping the Reserve card, and going for AmEx Platinum after the 3rd quarter”
Congratulations laptoptravel, I will contact you via e-mail to get your e-Prizes on the way soon. Also I like your thinking and I will be doing the same, I will be keeping my Delta Reserve card, at least another year, as I need the MQM spend bonus and MQD exempt waiver to keep my Diamond status for 2017. Also, nothing wrong with the non-Delta Amex Platinum card for the amazing list of perks it gives you including Centurion lounge access.
Most others, in the comments on the post, either are canceling because they are done with Delta, or others are keeping the cards for the perks. This really, I think, is wise. If you are going to fly Delta, you need a Delta Amex card. That is not to say you have to spend anything on the card, and if I were not going for status with Delta again next year I would simply stick with the Delta Amex Platinum card as my card of choice (to me the BOGOF [E22] cert offsets the $195 / year fee).
SWAG Saturday will take a break this week but I plan to have them back in August so stay tuned! – René
