7 Core Principles to Finding the Best SkyMiles Deals on Delta – The Lazy Traveler’s Handbook

A nice breakdown showing that there is still a lot of value out there for Delta Skymiles.  Delta even finished in first when I looked at the best award program for domestic travel.  Delta has been having pretty great sales lately that include flights to Europe, Asia, South America etc.  Andy makes a good point that there are a lot of deals to be had that are not in the published sales.

I have always enjoyed things like this.  Using every rule you have to your advantage is at the core of this game.  Ian does a great job showing how you could check out most of the main attractions in Alaska for under 20,000 miles.  That is pretty impressive.

“Hey BofA, I boofed ya” — What I said when I got the Alaska Airline Visa 40k sign-up bonus – Windbag Miles
A glimmer of hope maybe with BOA or just luck of the draw.  Who knows!  I am hopeful they have loosened the reigns some because BOA has become the hardest approval in my opinion.  We discussed the 40K offer that has been going around.  If you were interested in the card then be sure to try to snag the increased offer.
