It is just about that time folks i.e. the clock for choosing your Delta Medallion Platinum and if Diamond, Diamond and Platinum Choice Benefits (you do have until the 31st – just don’t forget). I have been back and forth on just what I would pick this year.
I blogged here about my musing and what I may or may not pick.
Then just this past Tuesday morning I expanded on my thinking even more.
Well I have finally made the call and have made my final selection. It really was not a hard choice and a reader “Blake” said it just as good as I could when he commented here on the blog:
“I literally just chose my Perks yesterday and you know what I chose?….
I have 8 Regional certs, 2 Global certs, and 4 Companion certs already sitting in my account right now that I’m fairly certain won’t get used this year so I saw no reason whatsoever to add more on.” – RenésPoints.com reader Blake
I hear you, Blake and agree with you 100%. I have more Delta points than I want to hold or care to admit that I now have amassed. I wish I did not have so many saved up with Delta RACING to devalue the value of my Skymiles day by day but they are, in the current COVID climate, still the best choice.
My reasoning also included this nugget. I really, really, really hated giving up 4 Global Upgrade certs that I normally value in the thousands of dollars range but since I get a fresh new set of Diamond Choice Benefits after February 1st – if I need them I will have access to a new set for this fall. Then, if I am able to follow my plans for 2022, I can get yet another set earned for then next medallion year when I need them.
Bottom line, much like 2020, 2021 is going to be a year like no other and I pulled the trigger to lock in what value I could.
What choice did you / are you going to make? – René
