Hola from 30,000 feet above Ohio! I’m currently sitting in first class on my Delta flight to Las Vegas that I got, essentially, for free using this promotion I posted about a couple weeks ago.

I got upgraded on both of my JFK-LAS-JFK legs and I have a room waiting for me at the Bellagio. Oh yea, and I snagged a premium ticket to Le Reve at the Wynn- all for a total $20 outlay when all was said and done. I can’t say THANK YOU enough to Expedia.ca for honoring what must have been a mistake.

Not only do I have a couple friends in Vegas that I’m seeing tonight, I’m also 4,496 MQMs and 8,992 Skymiles richer.
