award booking service help winner

Congratulations to this week’s SWAG Saturday winner, that is, #11 via Random.org and that is Brian H. who says: “I would use it for a trip to Bora Bora.”

Wow that sounds like fun. I cannot wait to hear the report about how Adam and Juicy Miles does at finding you those seats with your miles. I will forward your email to Adam and have him get in touch with you soon!

Be sure to check back tomorrow because, as mentioned, on tap this week will be the 15,000 Delta MQMs that could just put you over the top to that next medallion level!- René

If you look at my multi-part trip report flying Lufthansa you may say “how did he find that route”. Or, if you are having a hard time even using the “E7″ Essentials links to find the flights you want on Delta, you may need to think about help from Adam, my recommended award booker.

I have a detailed post  HERE  you can look at to find out just what he and Juicy Miles does. For those who don’t want to or have the time to search for the perfect routes, let his service do it for you.

Anyway, this week you have a chance to win a FREE* award booking  [using your points]  from Juicy Miles (*Round the World trip bookings are NOT included). The rules for SWAG Saturday are HERE if you have never seen them. I will pick the winner late Friday evening on the 15th.

For a chance to win, all you have to tell me is where in the world you would want to visit if you were to use Juicy Miles to book your trip by commenting on the blog below in this post! Have fun – René

This week, since I am at the home of our beloved mothership, that is, Atlanta, and am going to enjoy a tour of the Delta museum with readers today, how about we giveaway something extra special.

gold 40 year delta service pin with diamonds Delta Points Blog (2)

I know when I was a kid it was really fun to get a set of “wings” from the pilot. Plus, it was just super neat to sport them walking off the jet!

gold 40 year delta service pin with diamonds Delta Points Blog (3)

Now as an adult a bit of plastic is a little less fun, even though I am still a child at heart.

gold 40 year delta service pin with diamonds Delta Points Blog (4)

But a real, authentic, 14 Gold (gold filled I believe, that is, 14k gold over silver) with diamonds representing 40 years of service to Delta – that is kinda kool and btw these are very hard to get. It is not like you can just order these out of a catalog! :-)

So this week the “normal” rules are bit out the window. You can enter as many times as you like but you have to, with each answer, include a link to a post you like in your comment. For example, say you liked the post about the mighty schedule change. You would have to comment something like:

I liked the post about schedule changes:

http://deltapoints.boardingarea.com/2012/10/09/understanding-the-power-of-the-mighty-schedule-change-rule-with-delta-air-lines/

There you go. I will use random.org to pick the winner. As I said, enter as often as you wish, but you must include a different post link each time you comment! Clear? I will pick a winner LATE next Friday the 1st of August 2014! – René

.

PS – be sure and follow along today
and this weekend as I travel
to Atlanta & visit with readers!

lufthansa escada 1st class his and hers kits plus world cup first class duck

Wow what a fun world cup it was! It was fun to see the worldwide joy over the matches. My driver from our flight to the 1st class terminal said she was up late watching but it was so worth being sleepy to have seen the win (I on the other hand was asleep as I had a 6AM flight).

amenity kit 1st class lufthansa 747-8 delta points blog

Anyway, one of the most sought after little souvenirs from the cup days is the Lufthansa 1st class worldcup duck I got on my latest trip to Sweden. I have one (well I have two but I am keeping one). I also have both a his and hers unopened ESCADA 1st class amenity kit from my recent 1st class Lufthansa trip (you get the ones from the return trip).

So this week I will give these away tomorrow, Sunday night, thus you only have a little over a day to comment to win. Other than the drawing time, the rules are always the same and are HERE.

Then, what I need from you for a shot at winning via Random.org, is the following 3 steps.

1) Follow  @DeltaPoints  on twitter.
2) Send a tweet including the following:  @DeltaPoints #Lufthansa 1st class #Worldcup duck giveaway
3) Comment here in this post your twitter name / handle you used in the tweet.

I will also include a bunch of DeltaPoints SWAG as well if you do win. That is it, have fun and a great weekend everyone! – René

Delta Points Hawaii photo (1)

Have you ever been to Hawaii? It really is a nice place to visit. I mean from the warm breeze to the wildlife.

Oh, then there are the tropical drinks. Who does not like a fruity drink that comes with its own back scratcher.
