June was an interesting month I have to say. Weather was a mega issue for many of us Delta flyers. Oh, and we learned Delta has raised the Level 1 award (in name and amount) to 164,000 SkyMiles round trip in Delta One. That is, if you can find a Level 1 award. At least we can still get a bunch of SkyMiles cheap with the current card offer to help offset this new pain! But more than that happened this month. Take a look:

I will be spending most of July on the ground before gearing up with lots of travel toward the end of the year. But that gives me time to work on a bunch of “creative spending” to get my Amex bonus points so at least there is that! How is your summer going so far? – René
