  1. I love the bear…he’s adorable! But that 25x gogo pass would come in handy on the business trips!

    Thank you for all the information. I hope Delta is paying attention!

  3. Nick Holland Reply

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway. Thank you René and I really really hope I win something!

  4. I loved seeing you in Chicago! Thank you for your blog and sharing information!

  5. Btw, on a delta flight now about to depart cross-country. Wish I had a gogo pass for this flight 🙂

  6. Wowser!! 25 passes? Did you say 25 gogo passes? Man could I use those.

    As someone who is 4 mm delta and always been diamond since it started I thought I knew most of the tricks but you helped me get the two 15 K MQMs for both me and my wife (also a 2MM and always a Diamond) with your tips. Already set thru 2019 but working on my wife’s. Thank you. Grover

  8. Jeremy Houser Reply

    I never win anything. I always have to pay for everything! Help me René!

  9. That plane would look great on anyones credenza but it would be cool if it were on mine.

  10. Those socks are the perfect color for the upcoming holiday season.

  11. Jeremy Houser Reply

    If it were not for René, I would not be a Diamond Medallion.

  12. Jeremy Houser Reply

    If it were not for Rene, I would be a lonely gold medallion! This giveaway is awesome!

  13. OMG! I didn’t think it could get much better than a pass for 25 GoGo sessions! Great giveaway, Rene!

  14. Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman
    Please Mister Postman, look and see
    If there’s a package for me.

  15. I have a slew of upcoming long-haul flights starting January in my quest to requalify for AA Executive Platinum next year and this cache would be very much appreciated!

  16. Jeremy Houser Reply

    God first, family second, friends third, delta fourth, and then food!

  17. Everything in the Swag is great. But all of them together is AWESOME!!!!!
    Thanks pal.

  18. René,
    We so wanted to come to Chicago this year but couldn’t work it out. Hopefully next year!

  19. The 10 gree amex gogo passes go pretty fast every year. 25 more would be GREAT!!

  21. Doctor, What do you have for the fidgets? Hummm. How about a fidget cube?

  22. The greatest part about winning would be sharing all of these cool gifts with others.

  23. Baby let me be Your lovin’ Teddy Bear
    Put a chain around my neck And lead me anywhere.

  24. It would be cool to share these with family, friends and would love to give Gogo passes to unsepecting strangers in the skyclub.

    Thank you René for sharing with all of us.

  25. Look at all the comments this early in the day! I would sure enjoy that international pass on my trip to China next month!

  26. Will you check the text messaging on in the international flights and let us know how it works and if it’s free?

  27. That 777 model looks amazing!
    (Although other prizes seem really valuable!)

  28. Never been on a 777 but the model looks awesome. Does it have the gogo hump?

  29. Hope there is a package at my door when I get back from my next Delta trip.

  30. @UWannaGoViral Reply

    I used to have a go go bag handle cover. I got shredded. I could use a new one!

  31. Hi Selene!
    Reminder: It’s Schedule Change Saturday. Check your flights. If yours are anything like mine there are a number of them that will need to be fixed and reissued. Take advantage of the change rule.

  32. I especially like the GOGO 25x pass. Prize aside, I do like reading your blog even though I do not agree with some of the postings; especially one that glorify the fact that there is still a way to qualify Diamond after Delta raise the AMEX spending to $250K.

  33. I am wondering how many Diamond will not make the 2019 qualification after the bar is raised to $250,000 AMEX spending.

  34. I’ve never used Gogo on an international flight, but I need to!

  35. And, to think I thought this was a great Saturday because of football. This is much more fun.

  36. Michael Manna Reply

    So generous! On my next flight, I will post photo of items traveling with me …

  37. Ramona Lum Reply

    Love those GoGo socks but hope you kept a pair foot for yourself as they will go well with your Rene’s Points shirts!

  38. Schedule change Saturday is always a great adventure … never know what I’ll find.

  39. Louis Chittenden Reply

    I sure could use that GoGo pass on upcoming DL flights!!

  40. According to our expense report lady, GoGo is a No-No. Passes would be great for me to use and not have to go out of pocket.

  41. Marilyn Matecun Reply

    Rene, I enjoyed seeing you in Chicago again. Now I am planning a future trip on which I will become a Delta Airlines MILLION MILER – thanks entirely to your ongoing tips and your advice to sign up for two Amex Delta Reserve cards. Thank you.

  42. Schedule Change Saturdays really can be great. Agree the key is knowing what you want to change to before calling.

  43. New Delta app out for iOS today — 4.6.1. Just a few bug fixes on top of the automatic check-in introduced in 4.6

  44. Nice contest. Question. Why does delta in flight entertainment start before the safety video on some flights and on others after?

  45. Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.

    Thanks René

  46. Jason Edmunds Reply

    Nice SWAG Saturday! That 777 would be a nice addition to my collection 🙂

  47. We are no longer in the dispensation of age and experience. We are in the era of knowledge and information. Information leads a true leader and a true leader leads others.

    Thank you!

  48. Rene, doing LAX-JFK-ATL-NRT-SIN-NRT-ATL-LAX next week and still GUC waitlisted on all segs. Please send some good karma my way.

  49. Looking back, some of the happiest moments of my childhood were spent with my arm in packets of breakfast cereal, rootling around for a free gift.

  50. No changes for me THIS Schedule Change Saturday. Just like not knowing what I’ll get for Christmas.

  51. Flying this week and the next 7 weeks too. Off for the holidays then back in the air in January, on Delta of course.


  52. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

  53. René, you must spend all week long working on “things – Delta!” And thanks for all you do.

  54. It was great seeing you at the Chicago Seminars. What a great group of prizes!
    Ron and Debbie

  55. You have the gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”

  56. Delta doesn’t appreciate the PR you do for them,along with your constructive criticism

  57. Jeremy Houser Reply

    I’m watching a football game and it’s the 4th quarter!

  58. Tad Dunlap Reply

    Sunny today before the storm comes. Good day to win a bundle of GoGo goodies!

  59. Hi RenesPoints●com,

    I saw you tweeting about ai and I thought I’d check out your website. I really like it. Looks like RenesPoints●com has come a long way!

    Building a mailing list like you are is so important too, I think people would really like to be signed up to what you have to share.

    Good job on the social buttons, social media is so powerful these days

    Good job with the Yoast plugin SEO is so important these days.

    Also places like are worth checking out.

  60. Tad Dunlap Reply

    I agree- you promote DL better than DL does! Great P R a la René!

  61. I’ve been following this blog for a while now, thanks for all the swag!

  62. Upcoming Northeast storm seems pretty nasty. Expect airport delays if you are traveling, especially Sunday and Monday. At least it won’t be snow since there would be several feet of it!

  63. Cute bear but I’m salivating over the passes! Thanks for keeping it swaggy, Rene!

  64. That stuffed bear is awesome. Can they be purchased somewhere? Thanks for the giveaway!

  65. Norris Krueger Reply

    I’m #4352! I;m #352… or not 🙂

    As always, Rene, you rock!

  66. James Levin Reply

    Super giveaway, and love the blog — very useful and perhaps Delta even listens once in awhile? Ok, perhaps that’s asking too much…..

  67. Jeremy Houser Reply

    Delta internet is good, Delta internet is great I am ready for the win

  68. 1:400 scale?? It will fit nicely on my desk and remind me I need to be flying!!

  69. On a more serious note, thank you for all the great information and tips last weekend! Enjoyed your session very much!

  70. The paradox of gifts: I know what I have given you. I do not know what you have received.

  71. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.

  72. Appreciate all you do to help keep us informed on DL SkyX happenings.

  73. Anyone noticing the spread between basic economy and main cabin seems to be increasing?

  74. Judging by the 4 or 5 people making most of the posts here, I’d say the chances of one of them winning is about 1 to 4 or 5 🙂

    (Hey, that’s ok, it’s by the rules, so I say good luck to all!. And I’ll add a post or two myself!)

  75. I have tons of flights coming up the rest of the year so I really need these goodies!

  76. I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.

  77. Win or lose these drawings, when we share with others that makes us all winners, be it swag or status earning tips 🙂

  78. Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

  79. Great diversion from my fall cleaning and winterizing to take a moment for putting in a couple (or more, LOL) swag entries 😉

  80. Diamond bound, while I still can – thanks to 25K waiver for 2018.

  81. And to think I just got myself the 777-200ER model. Oh well. Always room for two!
