For years and years now I have said SkyMiles, that were once valuable, are “pointless” to collect. Sure, take them when they are free or a byproduct of flying or spending on your Delta Amex cards for elite points, but otherwise, not so much.
I warned on twitter to wait to book as this could be a bug. Now it seems it was or at least mostly was a bug. Remember the SkyMiles team at Delta is NOT to be trusted so maybe this was a bug or maybe it was a hint of what is to come.
Seriously, who would do this when you can get a Delta Amex Platinum or Reserve card (personal or business) for SOOOOO much less.
Or, why not just ask my pal ADAM to book the perfect mileage run for you for much cheaper as well.
I guess I am not the only one who is hating the stupid auto Fly Delta App check-in “enhancement” as Delta has, at least for iOS, updated the program to in some way let you NOT auto check-in. I can not test as they have not blessed Android with the 4.7 upgrade yet. Heck, I am fine with using the working 4.5 (gosh I love Android). (HT to @FlightWonk)
Oh, Delta Amex, after the modest change for the MQD exempt spend moving from 25k to 250k next year is giving you free premium drinks this month if you have their cards. I am sure this makes it all AOK right??? IMO these drinks should be free like in other quality clubs like Centurion clubs but nahh….
Well this sure has been an interesting week in Deltaland. I really wonder how many more nasty surpriseses Delta (and Amex) can make and folks not give up. Maybe 2018 will be different? You tell me! – Rene
