At the beginning of last month I blogged about both the new 2017 Delta choice benefit choices for Diamonds as well as the loading of the new Delta digital HOOU or Have One On Us digital coupons. Digital seems so much better than paper right? Well keep in mind as I have shown you about increased chances for bumps, killing trees is always smarter when flying Delta and it turns out the same is true for your Digital HOOU coupons. Take a look:
Both inside the Fly Delta APP as well as on Delta.com they warn you that if you plan to use your Digital HOOU coupon on a CRJ200 that has NO 1st class seats (or C+ seats for that matter) then you must print your coupon before you fly to be able to use it. And after all, that is one of the main places most elites will want to use these coupons!
I suggest you print it from Delta.com because, since we all know how
amazing fabulous spectacular buggy Delta IT can be if you bring it up inside the APP and cannot immediately use it, it could go away.
Heck, according to this Flyertalk thread they are simply vanishing without any input on our part now and then as of late so it may be smart to print them ALL as backup inside Delta.com (once again, smart to kill tress when you fly Delta)!
I still have a rather large stack of HOOUs that expire on 31DEC16 from a very kind reader who donated them before being kicked out of Skybonus this year so let’s make this a giveaway day. I will use Random.org later tonight and pick 5 winners and mail them (US address only) each 2 Delta HOOU coupons. Just tell me, either way, if you knew that you must print your digital HOOU before you fly on a CRJ200! – René
