I recently received an interesting credit card offer in the mail: a targeted offer for the Gold Delta Sky Miles® Credit Card from American Express that included a 60,000-mile sign-up bonus – twice as many miles as usual.
I was intrigued because Delta has become my airline of choice over the past couple of years.
When my wife, daughter and I fly together, it’s typically from New York to the San Francisco Bay Area to visit my wife’s parents.
Like most leisure travelers, we tend to look at price first and schedule second.
Lots of airlines fly this route – including Delta, American, United, Jet Blue and Alaska – and we’ve dabbled with all of them.
It just so happens that Delta has won the price/schedule battle of late.
And I like how Delta miles never expire (unlike American, United and Alaska).
We flew Delta for free last April when we redeemed 31,500 Sky Miles for three economy seats from SFO to JFK.
