|Transfer Promotion Details|
If you are near an award goal (perhaps just shy of 25,000 or 50,000 Skymiles), then taking part in this promotion makes sense, especially if family members can combine their Skymiles into one one account to make award travel possible. However, Delta has run even better promotions in the past. Late last year, they offered a great 100% bonus on any transferred or purchased miles. I would advocate jumping on that, but this seems a bit ho-hum.
Still if consolidating miles into one account is feasible, this transfer might make sense. Keep in mind that their online award booking site is often an exercise in frustration. Finding award tickets at the "low" level can oftentimes be nearly impossible. However, there are workarounds and some good tricks to employ (details coming in a future post). Drop me an email if you are looking to book a Skymiles award ticket. I can help.
Until tomorrow everyone!
