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.
I am going to be a little bit hard on you today because I bet some of your info needs to be updated (mine did). And beyond that Delta really makes it so simple to get to these pages. Like how simple? See above then:
Yeah, it really is that simple and other than the added big red arrows I have imposed on top of the screen shots, the big blue buttons make these pages simple to find in 2 clicks.
First things first. I have covered much of this info before in rookie posts but it has been a while and new features have come online since then and it is good to review old info. For example, I mentioned some of my data was old and incorrect. My Twitter info still had my old user name as @DeltaPoints not the current @RenesPoints (oooppsseee – fixed)! But it is also wise to check a number of other bits like your address and contact info as well as notification info. After all if Delta can not alert you to changes, and you have not updated your info, then who is to blame?
But I mentioned some new bits as of late. Like what? A REALLY sweet new feature is being able to add companions you often fly with (either family or friends or employees etc.). This way you can carefully enter all their info once and then, when you go to buy a ticket, it quickly auto populates all their info in a split second. Sweet right? #KeepClimbing worthy changes.
There are other helpful bits for those of us who tend to spend a great deal of time searching for Level 1 and Level 2 award tickets for certain routes (#ProTip – we publish the hidden Delta Award charts here on the blog). You can save up to 10 routes to save you clicks when you are searching. Again, just a nice feature of “My Delta” if we just use it.
So today, if you have not visited the My Delta page for a while, why not check and make sure your passport info is not out of date or expired. Check your hotel and car loyalty info is correct.
Print your SkyMiles card or Sky Club card if you need it as well as checking if you have any HOOU or Have One On Us drink coupons about to expire and print those if you need to! – René
