30% Off Delta Awards Between North America And Europe: Coach For 21K, Business For 43.5K Each Way!

Update: As of today Delta has opened this sale to everyone!

Originally posted on 08/10:

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

Delta is offering 30% off their level 1 awards to Europe for their elite members and for Delta AMEX cardholders for travel between 11/01/15-02/28/16.

For now it’s an unpublished sale, but I checked winter dates from JFK to Amsterdam, London, and Paris, and availability was surprisingly good.

Of course Delta doesn’t even tell you what level 1 in supposed to cost anymore, but that’s why I saved their award charts before they deleted them. Level 1 coach is normally 30K but is 21K with the sale. Level 1 business is normally 62.5K but is 43.5K with the sale.

You’ll need to login to view the discounted rates.  DDF member “yuguy” reports that he closed his Platinum Delta card several weeks ago but is still able to book with the 30% off.

The sale is valid on one-ways in either direction. But it’s definitely worth noting that Delta charges a fuel surcharge for awards that originate in Europe.  Therefore if you are flying from North America to Europe you’ll want to book as a round-trip. If you are flying from Europe to North America you’ll want to book travel as one-ways to take advantage of the lack of fuel surcharges for the return.

It’s always easier to search for one-way availability and then book it as a round-trip.

Roundup Of Money Making AMEX Express Checkout Deals: “SBS In July”

Update, 08/10:

-Ticketmaster has cancelled some, though not all, of the “test” tickets. If your order is cancelled the $10 credit will be clawed back as well.  You can still make another order to get the credit and a new $5 donation option has been added below.

-There are new discount codes for Sabon as well below.
———————————————————————————————————-

Originally posted on 07/16:

On 07/14 I reported that I had received a $10 credit for spending $0.01 via AMEX Express Checkout on several of my primary and secondary AMEX cards that are from the same AMEX online account.

Secondary cards with your SSN can be registered for their own account management under your primary AMEX account login or you can register them for their own online account login.

Just click on “my cards” and then “add another card” at the bottom:

amex5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This promotion runs through 09/07/15.  Consumer and business cards are eligible. Prepaid (Including Serve/Bluebird/REDcard) and corporate liable cards are not eligible.

It takes up to a week after the charge appears to receive the credit.

Each primary and secondary AMEX card can get a $10 credit to each store, up to a potential $110 in statement credits per AMEX card by using each of your cards at each of the 11 participating stores:
Barkbox.com
us.burberry.com
Laithwaiteswine.com
Ledbury.com
Newegg.com
Sabon.com
Ticketmaster.com
Virginwines.com
Warbyparker.com
WSJ.com
WSJwine.com

Of course the way to maximize those potential $110 in statement credits per card is by finding the least expensive item sold by each store.

Let’s take a look at what we’ve found so far.

NewEgg:

The old NewEgg link no longer shows the inexpensive download items, so here are new links:

Digital Download Items, from low to high

-Items with free shipping, from low to high.

-Items without free shipping, from low to high.

The process is simple:

1. Add any inexpensive item to your cart.

2. Select AMEX Checkout in your cart:

newegg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Login to your AMEX account, verify your account, and checkout.

4. Repeat for your other cards.

5. Check back in 5-7 days for a credit.
The $0.01 software downloads I originally bought (and was credited for after 5 days) have been pulled from the site.

Unfortunately many items were from a seller called V-Top Trading and they forgot to include a shipping charge on their items. They have cancelled all of their orders and NewEgg provided a $5 code to affected customers as a gesture of goodwill.

Commenters confirm that the $10 credits are being reversed for cancelled orders.

For now, the least expensive items from NewEgg are $0.49, so you can make a $9.51 profit on each order.

Some downloadable items have a limit of 2 or 5 downloads per NewEgg account, so read the terms on the item’s page.

Downloadable items require a NewEgg login.  To avoid errors on downloadable items it’s best to login to NewEgg from your cart rather than clicking on AMEX Express Checkout right away.  After logging in to NewEgg and continuing to the payment screen you can then select AMEX Express Checkout and it should process without errors.

If it still doesn’t work try using a different browser.

Sabon:

Sabon Linky

Update, 08/10: 

The following codes are valid for orders placed by 08/11:

5% off $50+: AUG05

10% off $85+: AUG10

15% off $120+: AUG015

I originally wrote about Sabon in this post 2 days ago.

The cheapest item from Sabon is a $10 gift card.

Additionally you get $1 in loyalty points for each $10 gift card that you buy, so you effectively get $11 for every $10 that you spend. Plus of course you’ll get the $10 back via statement credit.

There’s no limit to how many gift cards you can use in an order.

Shipping is free on $100+ orders.

You can save 10% of $100+ orders with code: WELCOME10

You can only use 1 promo code, but you can a code with use gift cards and loyalty points.

Shipping is free on $100+ orders, but even if you only have a few AMEX cards you can still get free stuff from Sabon.

TicketMaster:

Update, 08/10:

Here is a link for a $5 donation that is currently working with AMEX Checkout.

Just login to TicketMaster, look for “other ways to pay” and select AMEX Express Checkout.

You need to be using the TicketMaster desktop site to use AMEX Express Checkout.

Post a comment if you find other options!

————————————————————————————————————–

Yesterday DDF member “username” reported that he got a $10 credit for making a $1 donation via Ticketmaster and he shared links to several charities that accepted $1 donations.

That meant a $9 profit on each donation.

Those links are dead, but you can still:

1. Buy a ticket to this test event for $5.25 ($1 plus a $4.25 processing fee) leaving a $4.75 profit per card.

2. I’m not going to speak on the ethics of booking up a free ticket to a movie that you don’t intend to use, but you can add a $5 donation on the page after selecting a free ticket, leaving a $5 profit per card.

United Adds Ferry Flight From Tel Aviv To Newark Tomorrow, Wide Open For Awards

United’s evening departure last night from Tel Aviv to Newark was cancelled due to aircraft maintenance.

During off-peak times United might have cancelled one of their Newark-Tel Aviv flights so that they don’t have a stranded airplane in Tel Aviv, but those flights are operating at full capacity, leaving no slack to cancel them.

Instead United has added a rare 3rd flight from Tel Aviv to Newark.  It departs at 9:30am, arriving into Newark at 2:25pm. As the flight wasn’t being sold it’s wide open:

uatlv

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Expert mode tells us that there are at least 9 saver award seats available in both coach and in BusinessFirst class, an extraordinarily rare sight during the summer.

uatlv2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With United miles the flight costs 42.5K in coach or 70K in business. If you have Singapore miles though you can nab that flight for just 37.5K in coach or 57.5K in business without any close-in fees.  You can normally transfer points to Singapore from AMEX, Chase, Citi, and Starwood, but those transfers wouldn’t post until about 3AM EDT the next day at the earliest, which won’t work in this case.

Post a comment if you book and let us know what the empty flight is like!

The Tax Consequences Of Helping United Fix Bugs On Their Site

Last month the news that United handed out millions of miles as part of their bug bounty program went viral.  CNN Money, Fox, Business Insider, the BBC, and many more outlets covered the story of domestic white hat hackers that won at least 1,000,000 miles each for reporting remote code execution bugs on United.com.

Surprisingly none of the news outlets covered the tax implications of being awarded 1,000,000 miles.

Many companies offer cash bounties, but the tax implications of that aren’t as critical. After all, you can just take part of the cash winnings to pay the tax bill. Not so with miles that officially can’t be sold.

The IRS considers miles earned from flights and from credit cards to be purchase rebates which are non-taxable. However I’ve received 1099s for miles earned from opening checking accounts in the past, so miles earned from other sources are definitely taxable.

I reached out to United asking about the tax implications and they responded that they will be sending out 1099s at a value of 2 cents per mile for domestic participants.

So the 1,000,000 mile prize comes with a tax bill equivalent to $20,000 of income. The marginal tax rate for a NYC based household that has $91,000 of total income is 28% federal+3.65% local+6.45% state=38.1%. For that household, winning the miles will result in an out of pocket cost of $7,620. That cost could rise further if the additional “income” also knocks out any other tax deductions due to the higher overall income level.

To be sure, that’s still a decent price for obtaining miles (0.76 cents per mile), but it sure puts a damper on the program. Perhaps not quite as bad as how I imagine the contestants on Wheel of Fortune feel after they realize the real cost of their “free” trip to Jamaica when they get hit with a 1099 for $11,500. But a damper nonetheless.

—————————————————————————————

No, you won’t get a tax bill for telling United to fix a crucial award searching bug, but you will have my thanks. Read this post for how to provide feedback to United about their new site and click on the retweet and favorite buttons in the tweet below to make the issue heard by United:

Bose QC15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones For Just $239.99 Shipped From Amazon

Update: DEAD!

Bose QC15 Headphones Linky

These were $269 earlier today.

Note that newer Bose QC25’s were released last year, but Bose noise cancelling headphones rarely go on sale, so this is a nice discount.

I still own a pair of QC15s and they’re a dream come true while traveling. They’re comfortable enough to wear for hours on end, by far the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever owned.

Yes, they’re very expensive. But they’re built well and last for many years. Divide the cost over the amount of flights you take in 5 years and see if they’ll pay for you. Not that you can’t use them while you’re studying or any other time, but that’s when they really shine.

The noise cancellation drowns out the drone of the airplane engine so well that when you take them off in middle of a flight you’ll be in shock that you were ever able to fly without them. They make for a peaceful flight and I sleep like a baby on the plane with them over my ears.

Included is a small carrying case and two audio cables. One is standard for laptops/phones and one has a mic/remote for iPhone/iPod control and hands-free iPhone calling.

Will El Al’s New 787 Dreamliners Finally Bring A New Generation Business Class Seat?

El Al announced today that they will be purchasing and/or leasing 15 Boeing 787-800 and 787-900 Dreamliner aircraft and options for another 13 aircraft, with deliveries starting in the first half of 2017.

The 787s will replace their gas-guzzling 747 and 767 aircraft.

That’s great news for struggling El Al, but the real question is what will be the future of their premium class cabins where they have been bleeding premium fare passengers to their competition?

Currently El Al operates ancient business and first class cabins.  The business class seats don’t each have direct aisle access like Air Canada, Delta, and USAirways all offer.  They operate the only “first class” between North America and Tel Aviv, but the seats are made of faux-leather and they too don’t each have direct aisle access.

Hopefully a new aircraft will bring new premium class seating for El Al that does include direct aisle access for every seat.

The vast majority of airlines don’t operate 3 cabin first class on the 787 and I wouldn’t be surprised to see El Al jettison it as well.

The 787 isn’t dreamy for passengers in coach on most airlines though. Airlines have been stuffing seats into them at levels that far exceeded Boeing’s original projections, making travel in the back of the bus rather uncomfortable.  Seating is typically 9 across on a plane that’s 7% narrower than a 777.  Air Canada flies a 787 from Toronto to Tel Aviv with a seat width in coach of just 17.3″ and a pitch of just 30-31″ compares to an 18″ width and 32″ pitch on El Al’s 747.

Hopefully El Al can figure out how to re-position themselves as a premium carrier with the launch of the Dreamliner. And while we’re wishing for things, a redesigned website would be great as well 😀

United’s New Website Will Replace Continental’s Legacy Site This Month And Is Set To Remove Critical Award Searching Features; Provide Your Feedback Now Before It’s Too Late!

Continental last redesigned their website in 2006. It’s not pretty, but even 9 years later it still offers more functionality than any other airline’s website. That’s a real testament to just how far ahead of its time it was. When United merged with Continental it was a no-brainer to keep Continental.com over the site that was derided as United.bomb for its failure to correctly perform basic tasks.

In 2012 at the United DO I sat in a fascinating Q&A session with Mark Nasr, who came from the Continental side and was in charge of United.com up until a few months ago. He guesstimated that the new United.com would be up and running by the 2nd half of 2013. And he swore to get rid of the notorious blue screen while waiting for flight results:

tlv4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He was 2 years off, but the new United.com site is out of beta and is now up and running. And the blue screen is gone. The legacy Continental site will only be operational “for a few weeks” longer. During the rest of this month people will be transitioned over to the new site while still being allowed to switch back to the old site while it exists.

Unfortunately the new site represents a massive setback in award searching functionality from the old site.

Both the home pages of the old site and new site allow you to search for award flights and select nonstop flights only.

But the old United.com site gives an accurate look at which dates have nonstop flights with saver award availability. Dates in yellow have nonstop saver award space, dates in white only have standard award space:

tlv

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even if you didn’t originally search for a nonstop flight you can just click “nonstop flights only” and you’ll see a calendar that shows which dates have nonstop saver award availability.

On the new United.com even when you select nonstop only it still returns a calendar that shows dates that only have connecting flights with saver award space.  In the example below a search for a nonstop flight from Newark to Tel Aviv on 01/11/16 the calendar shows saver award seats, but in reality those are only available on connecting flights.  If you look at the calendar on the old United.com as shown above you can easily tell that there are no saver award seats on nonstop flights from Newark to Tel Aviv on 01/11/16 but on the new site it’s impossible to figure that out from the calendar, so you’re left having to manually check every single day to find nonstop saver award space:

tlv2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To make matters even worse, the new United.com has eliminated the Economy Saver and Standard award columns that the old site has.  Now there’s just a column that’s called “Economy (lowest)”.  In order to know whether you’re getting saver or standard award pricing you’ll have to look at the award chart!  The cynic in me says that is exactly their intention. I won’t be surprised to see United copy Delta’s lead in deleting their award charts and moving to dynamic pricing so that you never know if you’re really getting a saver award.  But then why would they still have saver and standard columns for business and first class on the new site?

I always break down my award searches to identify nonstop flights with award space.  There may be saver award space from NYC to Los Angeles on May 18 and from Los Angeles to Sydney on May 22nd.  United.com won’t show saver space for that itinerary, but after finding both of those nonstop awards you can use the multi-destination award search to piece together an award with a 4 night stopover in LA before flying down under.  It won’t even cost you more miles to take advantage of that stopover.  Without the ability to quickly view nonstop award space on the calendar view this technique becomes far more time-intensive.

Let’s make ourselves heard:

There’s no reason that United can’t add 2006 technology into their 2015 site, but the time to get it fixed before the old site dissapears is running out.

Please go now to the new United.com site and click on the green “site feedback” button on the right-side of every page (I highlighted it in a red box in the screenshot above).

And ask them:

1. Please fix the award calendar on the new United.com site so that when you select “nonstop” the calendar only shows dates with nonstop saver award availability, just like the old United.com currently does.

2. Please add a separate Economy Saver Award and Economy Standard Award column to the new United.com, just like the new site has for business and first class awards and just like the old United.com has for economy, business, and first class awards.
