We all should know at this point that Delta no longer sends out replacement SkyMiles cards. It costs too much money. Also, this is not news to you Silver Medallions, you don’t even get an annual Medallion kit at all anymore. But Delta tells us we can print one or use the Fly Delta App so no big deal. Until it is.
We also know that when out and about throughout the world there can be times that having a card, that is not make out of paper and packing tape, can be nice. Again NORMALLY not needed but there can be those few times. So why not make your own from the digital photo that Delta provides for a small cost (if this matters to you that is). Here is how you do it and how much it will cost you.
1) Get a NEW EBATES account where you get $10 off $25 spend
2) Search for “Luggage Pros”
3) Once on their site search for “MyFlyTag”
4) Spend at least $25 on stuff on their site.
So as you can see from the above example, if I want to order 3 tags, it would cost basically $28 and if I were new to Ebates I would get $10 back plus 4% cash back on the order as well. Plus, you can even have the bar code on the back of your card and that is always nice to have (you can even use it to board a Delta jet once you are checked in).
Now again, I am not telling you that you must do this. You may want to make some of your own silly type fake medallion tags using graphics like these: Carbon Fiber Medallion or Kryptonium Medallion or Unobtainum Medallion 😉
Anyway, just some ideas for replacement cards should you want one then here is how to get it done with more than paper from your printer and some packing tape! – René
