Even though this blog focuses most of its time on Delta Air Lines-related matters, many of us fly other carriers, too. Maybe price, distance, schedule, or employer-mandated travel policies play a role in those decisions.

Based on emails, tweets, comments, and personal interactions, I know Southwest has quickly become a favorite for some readers. One of my clients is a die-hard Southwest fan, so I’m on their planes well over a dozen times each year.

So if you fly the Airline of LUV, check your Rapid Rewards account for this targeted offer. It’s a nice chance to scoop up to 12,000 bonus points.

There are a few catches, though.

Before you comment (but I know someone will anyway) you are HIGHLY unlikely to be targeted for the above offer. I.E. you are likely to get a “ROCK”. You will, if you try to register, see the following: That is what I got on all of my, and my wife’s, Delta Amex cards. They do not love us at all it seems and it is kinda a shame because getting 2 Skypennis vs. just 1 may be enough to motivate me to use my Delta Amex card for the above qualifying spend. Oh, and you betcha I would spend on Delta tickets with the card vs. the way I normally pay with my Chase Sapphire Reserve card. But, alas, they hate me! 🙁 When it comes to Delta, normally it is the same story when it comes to targeted promotions (must be logged in to Delta.com to see these btw).…

Let’s start with something I just  hate  blogging about, that is, targeted offers because under most circumstances if you were targeted, like Bryan’s email shots from above, you got the offer and are able to register. Everyone else, like me, gets the below: And you are upset and frustrated that you have spent some massively big number on Delta AMEX cards this year and yet cannot play with the bonus MQM offer. I get that, but since I have been peppered with emails and tweets I wanted to blog about it. Now something way more important that will and does affect the rest of us – Upgrade priority: We now have in full effect the new Delta rules for upgrade priority. For years “fare class” has been an uber trump card. Now we know Medallion Status matters more than ever before. Then we have fare class but notice number 3?…

Well this was a fun surprise to get in my inbox from Karen Zachary of SkyMiles. No, not the 250 SkyMiles for filling out the survey but the chance to respond to the current state of affairs with the Delta loyalty program. This one was much like the one from last year I got. What I will do is this for today’s post, that is, put up all the slides then leave my comments and thoughts at the end. You can click on any of the slides for full screen shots and then click next, next, next to see them one by one. So there you are. A short list compared to some of them in the past I have done. First off, before you even ask, yes Delta does read these and does pay attention to the answers. Now I get there is a vast chasm of difference between…

You need to check your “AMEX offers for you” to see if you have been targeted for the above offer for $15 off if you spend $30 at Google Express. I was targeted on my Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express that currently has the amazing 35,000 bonus points offer till the end of the month! Also at checkout there is 1st time user Google Express code  J6UJFZ3A9  that gives you another $15 off the order for a total of $30 off your total order (with the AMEX offer). After you register your $15 off offer at AMEX, place an order at Google Express, wait for the charge to post as pending at AMEX, you should get notice via email that you are set to get the credit. This is yet one more to help me pay me back for my annual fee for holding this great travel…
