Amex and Delta ran some crazzzzzy good promotions in Q4 2010, including the mind-blowing 25k MQM and 50% bonus, which helped me achieve Diamond status for the first time. Since the new year they’ve been quiet about promos and I thought they’d take a little break before ramping up again- I guess I was wrong.
Per this link, you’ll get 30% on American Express Membership Rewards points transfers to Delta. While this isn’t as lucrative as the amazing MQM/50%, its not bad if you have some Delta awards you were going to book anyway. Delta makes it hard to find “low level” awards, but it can certainly be done, like I did with my 120,000 Delta miles trip in business class to the Seychelles last summer.
If you need help figuring out the best use of your Amex/ Delta miles, feel free to enlist my professional award booking services. I help people redeem millions of Amex points and Delta miles a month, so I know the ins and outs of both programs (as well as most others).
