Thanks Gary from View From The Wing for the link to this site!
I spent 16,500 Delta Skymiles on a flight from ORD to DCA via CVG which normally runs about $282 one way. I was able to get about 1.7 cents per point which is not great, but not terrible. In hindsight I could of gotten 2 cents per point by popping $250 Champaign bottles at ‘da Delta Sky Club.
I might cash out all my points for bottle service in Atlanta’s most exclusive club at ATL. It is high security, everyone gets searched on the way in, and you got to be on a Delta flight just to get in. It is not a bad way to use points just like these kids did. I really am not kidding on this one, who is down to drop points for champs before the next devaluation?
I just got this card last week and I already spent enough for 70,000 points worth $1,400 in drink redemption. This could buy 5 bottles of Dom Pérignon and $150 worth of other drinks. I asked at CVG if they had Dom, but they said only the larger hubs have that sort of thing.
Instead I decided to get a nice glass of Bourbon since I was in Kentucky. I got a single barrel for $14 and charged it on the Delta Platinum. Today I got the $100 credit as part of the 70K bonus miles, 10K MQMs, and $100 statement credit. Last time I bought a $50 gift card before which works. I wanted to buy an inflight beverage, but they didn’t have service because both flights were too short.
