UPDATE: Delta has taken this promotion down from their website today! Luckily I saved a copy of it!

Delta Promotion Part 1

Delta Promotion Part 2

Delta Promotion Part 3

Nobody knows what is going on right now with the promotion but its possible that they will change the terms of it. However anyone that already registered under the old terms should be OK. For anyone that wants to contact Delta about the promotion it says to refer Delta representatives to promotion 97062124.

Answers to people’s questions from the comments:
General: This promotion is valid for transfers into Delta until 12/31. There are many partners besides for Starwood that qualify for the promo, read the fine print on the bottom of the offer for the whole listing.

You can transfer a maximum of 27,000 Starpoints into Delta per day, so you will want to just do one 20,000 Starpoint transfer per today in order to maximize both the Starwood 25% and Delta 150% bonus.

The 150% bonus points will likely not post to your Delta account until sometime after the promotion end date of 12/31/08! So you will first get the 25,000 Skymiles for the 20,000 Starpoint transfer, and then after the Delta promotion ends you will get the 150% bonus of 37,500 Skymiles.

Here is Delta’s Mileage chart for all award redemptions.

Q: How many miles does Delta charge to go to Israel?
A: Delta is the only airline that has 3-tier mileage pricing. When few seats on the plane are sold there is low availability, normally when the plane is filling up there is medium availability, and there is always high availability.

Delta coach to Israel, each way:
Low=40,000
Medium=65,000
High=95,000

Delta BusinessElite to Israel, each way:
Low=60,000
Medium=115,000
High=185,000

Q: Is it worth changing all starwood points to delta miles???
A: Good question! Starwood points are extremely valuable, but getting over 3 Delta miles for each Starpoint is quite tempting! Ultimately it boils down to how you personally value your Starpoints and Skymiles, and that will be different for everyone.

Q: Can i transfer the points now without booking a ticket?
A: Of course! The Delta Skymiles will be waiting for you when you are ready!

Q: Can I transfer my Northwest miles to Delta now that they are merged, or does that happen automatically? If I can, I wonder if I can get this bonus?
A: They can’t be transferred, it will be merged automatically, most likely at some point over the next year.

Q: Do you know if you can then transfer Delta miles to any other airline?
A: I don’t know of any method of transferring out Delta miles-you’ll have to use them for flights on Delta or their partners!

Q: Do delta skymiles expire if i transfer to them?
A: Yes, you must have earning or spending activity in the account every 2 years to keep them from expiring.

Q: Do you actually have to use the skymiles before December 31, or just transfer them by then?
A: Transfer by then, the miles are then valid forever as long as you have activity in your Skymiles account every 2 years.

Q: If I open a starwoods card now, will I get the 10k bonus points in time to use for this promotion?
A: Under normal conditions you should be able to apply today, use the card once, and get the points before 12/31. However sometimes AMEX doesn’t give the points on the first statement, in which case you would have to call them up and try to convince them to push the points over before waiting for the next statement.

Q: How do i transfer now after i signed up with delta???
A: Go to spg.com, login to your Starpoints account and go to redeem Starpoints.

Q: Will I be able to get Delta skymiles and then transfer them to Continental miles?
A: No, but you can use Delta miles to travel on Continental, or any other Delta partner airline.

Q: What about if i only have 15,000 starwood points? would that be worth transferring?
A: You would not get the 25% Starwood bonus, so you would get a total of 37,500 Skymiles. By transferring just 5,000 more Starpoints you get 25,000 more Skymiles! Go apply for another Starwood card today-or go buy money from the mint!

Q: I clicked on the linky and I filled in my name, e-mail and skymiles number in the register box. now it says, “You have successfully registered”. Now what?

A: Now you’re registered! All you have to do now is transfer your Starpoints!

Q: If don’t have any plans to travel in the near future (maybe Florida), is it still worth it to transfer my starwood points to skymiles & let it sit there till I want to travel?

A: Do the math and figure out if you’ll get greater value out of 20,000 Starwood or 62,500 Delta and that will be the answer!

Q: If I remember correctly, didn’t you once post that you can fly to Israel with about 55k starwood points? If so, how?
A: You’re looking for S.B.S.’s famous “Using Starwood Starpoints To Get To Israel PDF Guide”

Q: So i just registered for the promotion, do i need to wait , or can i just go into spg.com and transfer now?
A: Transfer away!

Q: Will the recent merger of NWA/Delta affect Skymiles in any way? Will I regret switching the points to miles?
A: The Skymiles program will have to be realigned with the Worldperks program, but I wouldn’t expect any massive changes.

Related: The Starwood AMEX easily gives the best reward value and bang for each buck of purchases made out of any credit card out there today. It also comes with tons of nice benefits and a sweet (and valuable) 10,000 Starpoint signup bonus for free for each card that you get. Between a myriad of incredible mileage transfer options and unbeatable blackout-free hotel redemption options you should have no problem getting incredible value out of every Starpoint that you have!

HOT! Additional 25% Off La Briute Self Heating Meals Already Discounted 23% From Amazon!

Update: 4 varieties are now sold out, 4 are left, grab this deal while you can!

Originally posted on 02/04:

Important: Only the yellow boxed meals have the heating element, soup, and dessert.
The cheaper brown-boxed meals only contain an entree!

La Briute Offer Linky

Use the following code at checkout for an additional 25% off: LABRUIT4

Each meal comes with an entree, soup, cookies, utensils, and a heating element.

If you’ve never had a La Briute meal before, they are pretty neat, and it’s great to have a hot meal when traveling to places without kosher food.

We used some of the la briute cheese ravioli meals during our recent Hawaii trip and they were a nice diversion from frozen food and sandwiches.

It comes with a package of salt-water and a heating tray, and when you pour the salt-water onto the heating tray it creates steam and cooks the meal in about 10 minutes.

The meals themselves can last for years when unopened!

Spirit $1+ Sale!

Update: In order to book this without joining the club just use the regular spirit airfare search for the dates that the site indicates are on sale!

Spirit Sale Linky

Spirit is having one of their crazy sales now.  In order to get the advertised price you have to join the $9 fare club (which costs $40/year) or have the Spirit credit card. However even if you don’t you only pay a $9 penalty each way to get in on the sale.

A quick search for a few of the cities on sale showed that it definitely is possible to still get the special fares in both directions.

Starwood 2008 Elite Gift Promo!

I don’t believe that this is a targeted promotion, as a reader sent this to me and I qualified without a hitch as a Starwood Gold member!

Starwood Gold elite status can be earned by spending $30,000 in a calendar year on a Starwood AMEX card, or by having the AMEX Platinum charge card.

David Z., who sent me the promo, wanted to know what would be better a $25 Starwood GC or 1,000 Starpoints.  I would say unless you know for sure that you will be staying on a paid rate at a Starwood hotel this year to take the 1,000 Starpoints.

Starwood 2008 Elite Gift Promo Linky

Platinum members:

Choose from:

-Free Friday/Saturday/Sunday night in any category 1-5 Starwood hotel through 12/27/09

Or

-$75 Starwood GC exp 12/31/09.

Gold members:

Choose from:

-1,000 Starpoints

Continental Airlines Updates…

I’ve long considered Continental to be the best airline on which to earn elite status with.  While AA’s EXP status is arguably the finest example of elite status that can be earned with miles flown, that status requires 100,000 elite qualifying miles in a calendar year to attain. For anything less than that you’re probably best off with Continental.  At any rate here are some interesting tidbits from them, much of it courtesy of Flyertalk user “sbm12.”

-All elites can now get upgraded to first class at the time of purchase on Y (full-fare) and B (discount full-fare) tickets.

-Date changes on award tickets will go from being $150 to being free as long as the origin and destination cities remain the same and it is done over 21 days in advance of the flight.  Changes within 21 days will now be $75.

-Effective in March confirmed changes at the connection city will be go from $50 to being free.

-LiveTV will begin being launched next month and will cost $6 in coach and free in first. Limited Wi-fi will be launched later this year and will be free for all passengers.

-Lie-flat seats in BusinessFirst will begin being installed on 777 aircraft in September, on 757 aircraft in November, and on 767 aircraft next January.  The process will take about 20 months for the fleet to be converted over.

-Non-elites can now purchase first class upgrades for $50-$250 at the check-in kiosk but will be prioritized after all elites and their companions have been given complimentary upgrades.

-Northwest and Delta elites will no longer receive free checked luggage when flying on Continental as those airlines do not let Continental passengers receive free checked luggage when flying Northwest/Delta.

-Continental will leave the Skyteam alliance on 10/24/09. No Skyteam flights after 10/24/09 will earn miles on Continental.  Tickets booked on Skyteam partners before 10/24 for travel after 10/24 will be honored. There will likely be a short period of time of Continental not belonging to any alliance before being integrated into the Star Alliance.

-Integrating a deep relationship with United will be the main point of concern during the transition in order to get the benefits of what a merger would’ve brought without the risks. Expect full club reciprocity with the relationship.

-Continental Silver (25K EQM’s) will be Star Alliance Silver. Continental Gold and Platinum (50K and 75K EQM’s respectively) will be Star Alliance Gold.

-Continental will not follow United’s lead in intentionally blocking alliance airline’s award availability (Starnet blocking).

-ETA on the 787 dreamliner is Q2 2011.

Fly Between North America And Anywhere In Europe, Israel, Or Russia For Just 20,000 Starpoints In Coach Or Under 40,000 Starpoints In Business!!!!

Update: Flying Blue has extended this promotion for the same cities listed below from 02/28/09 to 03/31/09!

Originally posted on 01/01/09:

Starwood AMEX Linky (Free for first year, Earn 10,000 Starpoints With First Purchase, and 30,000 more Starpoints with your first $15,000 in purchases) The US Mint should be able to help you there…

AMEX Gold Charge Card Linky (Free for first year, Earn 10,000 AMEX MR Bonus Points after you spend $500.) AMEX MR points transfer to Flying Blue miles at 1:1.

20,000 Starwood Starpoints transfer into 25,000 Flying Blue (Air France and KLM’s joint loyalty program) miles.

That is all you will need to have to get to Israel or any other “European” destination in January or February!

S.B.S. previously made an excellent 8 page PDF examining every way of getting to Israel via Starpoints.

In that article he pointed ways of getting to Israel for 40,000 Starpoints or less (Via transferring Starpoints to JAL, British Airways, LAN, or Flying Blue)

For January/February there is a promo award to/from many cities in North America and Europe Zones 1, 2, or 3.

The promo award cost between North America and “Europe” in flying blue miles is:
Coach: 12,500 miles one way, 25,000 miles round trip.
Business: 22,500 miles one-way, 45,000 miles round trip.

Tickets must be booked by 02/26/09, and all travel must be completed by 02/28/09.

Valid North American cities for origin or destination:
Atlanta
Chicago
Dallas
Detroit
Houston (Coach promo award only)
Montreal
NYC/JFK
Toronto
Vancouver
Washington DC

This is how Flying Blue defines Europe:
Europe 1: Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Netherlands, and Switzerland
Europe 2: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden
Europe 3: Albania, Algeria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Libya, Latvia, Lithuania, Morocco, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Western Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Tunisia, Ukraine, and Yugoslavia

As Flying Blue considers Israel to be part of Europe (zone 3), it qualifies as a valid origin or destination.

The promo awards can only be flown with KLM via Amsterdam. that are not valid on Skyteam partners such as Continental or Delta (although nonstop travel to Israel on those carriers is allowed on the regular 40,000 Starpoints/50,000 Flying Blue miles award to Europe zone 3 in coach or 90,000 flying blue miles in business.)

Flying Blue Promo Award: January/February 2008

Unfortunately, you cannot search online for mileage availability on Flying Blue unless you have the required miles in your account.

A stopover in Amsterdam is allowed and will make finding mileage availability easier.

The best bet for checking availability will be by calling Flying Blue at 1-800-375-8723
