Oh I have some very kool stuff on the way in the weeks ahead like a blue tooth rechargeable speaker and digital luggage scales so I think the next few weeks of SWAG Saturday will be fun to be a part of.

So what do we have on tap today? How about  ONE  24 hr Delta Skyclub pass and a Delta Points luggage tag as well + a chance to win Silver Medallion status in July. The terms and conditions are posted HERE in last week’s drawing if you have any questions.

So for a chance to win today, you need to go to the blog (if you are reading this in e-mail) and click on the word “comments” at the bottom of the post and tell me, with the Delta AMEX  GOLD  or  PLATINUM  or  RESERVE  card, the best feature is:

1) The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s
2) The up to 9 free bags per reservation
3) The ZONE 1 boarding
4) The buy one get one free cert (gone on the gold)
5) The free Skyclub on the Reserve

You pick the feature you like the best, any answer above counts or another that is a PERK, for a chance to win the SWAG! – René

    The ZONE 1 boarding

  3. Alex H. says:

    Free sky club with the reserve card!:)

  4. Rob says:

    The MQMs since they are basically free with your regular spending. On a close second, the free baggage, since it pays for the card itself.

  5. Sarah C says:

    I have the Gold card and the best feature is being able to check up to 9 free bags!!

  6. Alex H. says:

    5) the free skyclub on the reserve

  11. Amanda S says:

    The free certificate!

  12. hutch says:

    Sky club for sure

  13. Ryan M says:

    The buy one get one free certificate is great. Most other perks from the cards can be had with status.

  14. Melody says:

    Bonus skymiles!

  15. Sean O says:


  16. Bill G says:

    Favorite feature is the up to nine free bags per reservation

  27. James M says:

    The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s

  28. Hank says:

    During my last trip, all 3 legs of the return flight was a crowded zone 3 boarding. So for me the zone 1 boarding would be great!

  29. Jason L Brown says:


  30. Shawn says:

    It’s the free Skyclub on the Reserve.

    I’ve never had the chance to go to a Skyclub but have envied them from pictures and descriptions on blogs. I always get to the airport super early since I’m deathly afraid of missing a flight and just end up sitting bored for an hour. How cool would it be to chill with drinks and snacks instead?

  31. Matt R. says:

    5) Free Skyclub on the Reserve Card.

    Zone 1 boarding.

  60. Doug says:

    I was going to say the free bags but with the type of travel I’ve done lately, Zone 1 boarding has been the best.

  61. Sterling says:

    Platinum card buy one get one cert. Though too bad upgrades are no longer available on these tickets. Oh my wife getting 10,000 MQMs isn’t too bad either!

  62. Dima says:

    Free Skyclub is awesome. Especially if you don’t fly that frequently in business/first

  63. Stoshbygosh says:

    Zone 1 boarding is the best!

  64. Michael H.(oldfox) says:

    For me…………The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s!!

  65. Stacey says:

    Zone 1 boarding is the best

    Zone 1 boarding far and away!

    Definitely the Skyclub on the Reserve!

  78. Mike B says:

    Zone 1 boarding while getting MQMs toward status.

  79. Jim M says:

    Of course the free Skyclub on Reserve. The MQM’s were nice too.

  80. Tim C says:

    For my needs, I actually like the pay with miles option from having any of these cards. i can very often find flights between Boston and Fort Myers to visit my family for less than $250 round-trip, but it is quite difficult to find any award trips that can be redeemed at the low level, so I appreciate being able to pay for a $200 ticket using miles, especially around holidays.

  81. Matt R says:

    Reserve card I guess. Delta sky club access + higher priority on UG list..

  82. Matt s says:

    Zone 1 boarding is most important to me since I lost my delta status. I rarely check a bag so knowing overhead space will be available is always a relief.

  83. Kyle says:

    Zone 1 boarding

  84. Phil R says:

    Skyclub access with the Reserve card.

    It’s all about the free trips! BOGO!

  88. Richard C says:

  90. Helen C says:

    Free companion ticket

  91. Min says:

    Free sky club access

  92. Matt says:

    Gold – free bags #2

  93. Derek W. says:

    Bonus skymiles.

  96. Aleks K says:

    To me the bonus Skymiles or MQM’s, no question!

  100. PCB says:

    The MQMs are best for me.

  101. P T says:

    The best feature of my Gold card is the Zone 1 Boarding.

  102. Anthony P. says:

    I like the up to 9 free bags per reservation.

  103. Ping says:

    I love two features – free bags and zone 1

  104. Stephen says:

    The free flight certificate

  105. Nina says:

    Hi Renee/
    Free sky club on reserve is wonderful
    Not as fabulous as you!!!!!!

  106. Marcella says:

    Delta Gold – 9 free checked bags per reservation; But oh how I will miss the free flight certificate :(

  107. Brian H says:

    The bonus MQMs

  108. Steve says:

    Free bags

  109. JON says:

    free bags undoubtedly

  110. Buddy M. says:

    2) The up to 9 free bags per reservation.

  111. Scott H says:

    (2) – Free bags. I don’t fly enough for the annual fees on the PLAT or RESERVE cards to make sense for me. Going for GOLD on next AoR, though.

  112. Chris B. says:

    Honestly, the combo of all these benefits make the Delta cards the best available. If I need to choose just one, I’d say the companion certificate is the best as it draws infrequent fliers.

  113. Ann Firetine says:

    Free bags and Zone 1 boarding – love them!

  114. Diane says:

    At first, of course it was the medallion miles but now I have to admit both my hubby and I really enjoy Skyclubs!

  115. BostonBen says:

    Buy one get one free with the Platinum

  116. Emman says:

    I want the up to 9 free bags cause I pack heavy!

  117. Randy White says:

    MQMs the best. Status highest priority for me.

  118. Abhinav G says:

    The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s

  119. Matthew says:

    MQMs are most interesting to me.

  120. Bob Lamb says:

    Free Skyclub with Reserve

  121. phill gold says:

    Definitely the free skyclub access…thinking of upgrading for it. Thanks!
    EDIT: From Rene – Oh don’t UPGRADE that is a very bad idea Phill! Go for BIZ card to make sure you get points!

  122. Andy J says:

    Mqms and the certs are both great. The gold card is much less valuable without the cert.

  123. Billy L says:

    SkyClub on the Reserve card.

  124. Craig says:

    The bonus MQM and Skymiles with 15K purchases etc

  125. Brian Atl says:

    Bonus MQM and skyculbs are the most beneficial.

  126. Tim H says:

    Definitely the bonus MQM’s!!!!

    5 – Free skyclub with Reserve.

  135. Rich says:

    The MQM’s (Reserve)

  136. david says:

    gold – bonus miles

  137. Nancy H says:

    For me, it’s an even tie. Love the free bags (if I’m checking luggage) and love the Priority boarding (to confirm bin space if I only have a carryon).

  138. R gage says:

    Zone 1 boarding

  139. Edith says:

    ZONE 1 boarding!

  140. Eileen Moffatt says:

  143. James W says:

    Zone 1 Boarding

  144. Paolo S says:

    The bonus Skymiles for sure.

  145. Rob says:

    Free bags!

  146. Marc says:

    The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s, for sure. Thanks René

  147. Henry says:


  148. Abhishek D says:

  149. Matt G. says:

    I have the Platinum
    —>> 1)The bonus Skymiles

    I got the 100,000 bonus miles!!
    I also look forward to the Companion ticket as well ;-)


  150. Rick Koblish says:

    MQM’s by far helped me reach DM!

  151. DaninSTL says:

    Bonus miles I’d say but I also like the club feature.

  152. Steve f says:

    Free mqms. Then bogo cert.

  153. thomas says:


  154. Bill says:

    1) The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s. Free bags (with Priority status so they are out first) is a strong #2.


  155. LKLY says:

    I like the free bags, since traveling with the family can add up when everyone brings a couple bags.

  156. JTC says:

    Get in the Zone (1).

  157. BDF says:

    Zone 1 boarding

  158. Elijah says:

    Def the companion certificate. Zone 1 is half the plane these days.

  159. JP says:

    Zone 1 boarding.

  160. Linda says:

    Free SkyClub

  161. David says:

    The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s.
    But, I do like all the perks.

  162. Chris says:

    I like up to 9 free bags per reservation! The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s is a very close second!

  163. Bill Finger says:

    Zone 1 boarding is pretty handy if you are not an Medallion member.

  164. Warren says:

    I like the MQM’s!!!!!!

  165. Robert says:

    BOGO free on platinum

  166. James H says:

    The buy one get one free certificate is the one we like the best.

  167. Ginny says:

    Zone 1 is my favorite because I like the peace of mind knowing there will be room for my carry on bags.

  168. Ron says:

    Zone 1 Boarding. Wanna have room for my carry-on.

  169. David Backman Rorke says:

    Of course The up to 9 free bags per reservation is ideal for someone like me who travels with TOO much stuff..always need that extra bag..:)

  170. Charles Webb says:

    Free companion ticket – yes, I do use this benefit annually from my DL DkyMiles AX Platinum card!

  171. Glenn says:

    I like it as tie breaker for gate upgrades. I’m DM, never check bags, and have lifetime SkyClub membership, so none of the other perks mean much. As for Reserve MQMs, it is a scam.

  172. Gordon L says:

    bonus skymiles

  173. I feel the Reserve card an its MQMs are the best for me.

  174. rayjr13 says:

    The Skyclub access can be had with a platinum [membership rewards] card with much better travel benefits pre 2013. So obviously the MQMs are what make the card different and worthwhile. MR points can be used for revenue fare s to build mqms and actually get somewhere, but SkyMiles themselves are little different animal

  175. Uri says:

    most def:
    5) The free Skyclub on the Reserve

  176. Roy M says:

    The ZONE 1 boarding

  177. Mike says:

    Reserve Card – all things being equal as GM, getting priority over others. Just got confirmation from Delta yesterday that is happening on my flight from SAT to ATL (connection to DTW) on the 20th. Still hoping I get the bump for DTW-SAT tomorrow.

  178. Helen Rylee says:

    Definitely the free companion ticket!

  179. Chris says:

    As someone who flies through ATL 2x a week, without question, the access to the Crown room, oops, Sky Club.

  180. molla says:

    zone 1

  181. Shalini says:

    The Gold card – the best feature is the the up to 9 free bags per reservation – with 5 members in our family that is really a great perk that we can use!

  182. Alex I says:

    Sky club access is the best perk, valued at almost the price of the yearly msmbership itself.

  183. Adrian R says:

    9 free bags!

  184. Kristin says:

    9 Free bags! I don’t know that I’d ever use all of them, but it’s a great perk

  185. Linda says:

    Zone 1 boarding!

  186. Scott says:

    Delta Amex Platinum – MQM bonus & Skymiles bonus for cash spent w/Delta – no questions asked.

  187. Eric S says:

    The bonus MQMs

  188. bruce S. says:

    free companion ticket!!!!

  189. barbara S. says:

    Zone 1 boarding….

  190. sarah S. says:

    free bags are always a good thing!

  191. Sam S. says:

    Zone 1 is great…..

  192. barb s. says:

    free bags…zone 1. I will take the free bags!!!

  193. Rick C says:

    Platinum card, MQMs

  194. John S says:

    The free bags!

  195. Mel says:

    The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s!

  196. Clarence says:

    AMX platinum MQM

  197. Brian W says:

    Hard choice between the Skyclub access and the MQM on the Reserve Card (through your link, of course!). Overall, though, I think the MQM, as I view the fee as my SkyClub membership fee, so the MQMs are a pure bonus!

  198. Yana K says:

    #2 Free bags – with up to 9 bags allowed to check in for free, you can play a Kardashian for a day! :-)

  199. Mark R. says:

    Reserve MQMs, by far!

  200. martin says:

    I would enjoy anything.

  201. B says:

    Platinum-the bonus MQM’s

  202. Keith says:

    Def spend threshold MQMs.

  203. Nancy says:

    I’m all about the bonus miles.

  204. Johnny says:

    The bonus Skymiles or MQM’s

  205. Joe says:

    I’d say the free checked bags, as that is an immediate benefit versus most of the others.

  206. Phil says:

    Up to nine bags free!

  207. Stuart R says:

    I would probably enjoy the SkyClub even though I don’t have any of the cards. Last airline lounge I visited was the Admirals Club in Miami which was nice. Would like to go to a Delta one someday.

  208. Andrew P says:

    The free baggage is the best perk…forget the $50+ in baggage fees!

  209. Tom says:

    For me it’s the MQMs on the Reserve card. I max out my spending every year and it usually means the difference between gold and platinum — which is quite a difference when it comes to upgrades and other perks.

  210. Kevin says:

    Reserve – MQM’s for sure, other cards can’t match

  211. Lynn Tebbenkamp says:

    free bags
