This is another reason why I subscribe to so called “Junk emails” from Airlines and banks. Just received an offer from American Express in my email for 60,000 Delta SkyMiles with a $50 Statement Credit with $95 annual fees (waived first year). I;d need to spend $1000 in 3 months to earn the sign-up bonus.The public offer is only for 30K miles and no statement credit, so this is definitely a much better deal.
PS – This offer does not earn me any referral bonus but I will always share the best offer with you. If you are interested in applying for the card, here is the direct link to the offer – LINK
Some Great ways to redeem Delta Miles
1. Get to New Zealand or Australia one way for 80,000 Skymiles on Virgin Australia
Delta SkyMiles gets you allows you to fly business class on one of the finest products out there – Virgin Australia Business Class. You can score a one way flight from Los Angeles to Sydney/Brisbane for 80,000 Skymiles.
2. 62.5 K SkyMiles for One-way business class to Brazil on Korean Airlines
You can fly from Los Angeles to San Paulo for just 62.5 K SkyMiles one way and also there are no fuel surcharges which maximizes your redemption value!!
3. 70 K China Southern Business Class one-way
You can use 70 K SkyMiles for one-way and 140 K to fly from Los Angeles to several places in China in Business Class on China Southern. Delta unfortunately charges fuel surcharge fees for this redemption (~$300 for round-trip). Although, I am not sure if vegetarians will find anything suitable to eat even in Business Class (Pun Intended)
4. Air France or Air Tahiti Nui to Tahiti
These redemption are not cheap. It will cost you 100K SkyMiles in economy or 160K miles (roundtrip) in Business class. You would have to use expertflyer to search for award spaces as Delta is not the best when it comes to searching award spaces on Air France and Air Tahiti Nui. You can use the free night from IHG card to stay at the IHG resort in Tahiti.
There are many more things you can do with Delta SkyMiles. Stay tuned as I am launching an exciting Travel Reward Coaching program in the next few weeks that will get you insight into earning and redeeming miles and make your travel dreams turn into reality while saving thousands of $$$.
