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).

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.

chicago seminars 2014 is sold out

THE frequent flyer event each year has SOLD OUT now. Sorry if you have been waiting and now wish you had booked a ticket but I did warn you a few times here on the blog that it will sell out soon. But all is not lost!

Thanks to a very kind blog reader (thank you) I have an extra ticket to give away & I will be paying the fee to transfer the ticket from them to you. Not just that, there is MORE!

While the  host hotel is sold out  I will provide for you a hotel room Friday & Saturday night at a location VERY close by, so no need to stress about that either! Yes, you will have to make your way to Chicago, but I am taking care of 2/3rd of the event for you. How sweet is that? In case you missed it from the photo or the links above, the dates for the event are OCTOBER 17-19th, 2014.

Like the new pattern for SWAG Saturday, the drawing will be this coming Friday. Now unlike most other SWAG Saturdays there are some conditions. Please ONLY take part if you are SURE you can go as I hate to see this go to waste.

If you already have a ticket you can not win – give someone else a shot!

This week there will be some work to win but it is a really kool prize; if you win you will learn so much over the weekend it will CHANGE your travel life as you know it. So, for a shot to win I need you to:

1. Follow DeltaPoints on Twitter

2. Send a Tweet that includes:

#DeltaPoints #ChicagoSeminars 2014 giveaway

3.  Comment here on the blog on this post what your twitter name / handle you used to tweet about the drawing!

I will then match up your comment and tweet and use a Random.org (or another similar site) to pick the winner on Friday 11th of July. If you don’t have a twitter account here is how you do that. Please only one entry per person per twitter account. If your family all tweet, they can all enter once too but I only have one ticket to give away! Have fun and hope to see you in Chicago in October – René

random-org not working

Well this does not work! Random.org is DOWN. What to do? Random.org has been as reliable as, well, a Delta arrival (if you don’t fly Delta you will not understand this but we are almost ALWAYS on time)! Seriously – we are.

delta 50 gift cert winner

I found another site that seems to work and it picked #101 that is David who says:

“Currently at 50k, but about half of that was rollover from last year. Goal is to exceed 75k to earn Platinum status”

Congrats on winning, on being Gold and on your way to Platinum. I will contact you soon to get your prize on the way to you!

Have a safe, fun weekend everyone and please be sure to check back tomorrow for a new SWAG Saturday as you will have a shot at something no one else can get! – René

screen shot of a 50 dollar delta airlines e-gift cert from delta points blog swag saturday

What could be a more fitting prize than a $50 Delta e-Gift card. You can use this for any Delta flight, that is to purchase a ticket. This will work just like cash and lower the price of your ticket you buy in any class of service.

So on to the basics. The rules are HERE so you know and for simplicity’s sake I think I will begin to stick with the Friday PM time frame to giveaway the prize each week.

Sands of Time

We are just about ½ way through the year. My MQM totals are looking very good (to me) as I work toward my goal. I have booked a bunch of DeltaMileageRun’s to make sure I make it on top of all my other trips.

But the one thing that always makes me crazy is when in December each year someone emails me and says – eeeek – I am 3,000 MQMs short of whatever level and what do I suggest. Well I always start with the fact that the Delta Reserve card personal or business is the cheapest mileage run you can do from home (E-Mail me if you need a link). After that I say you should have booked something months ago when you had time to find a great deal.

So my question to you, for a shot at this week’s $50 Delta e-Gift card via Random.org is, what is your current Delta MQM total for the year. You don’t have to give me the EXACT number if you don’t want to, but keep it close like 65,000 etc. and feel free, if you want, to share what your goal for year end will be! This should be fun – René

swag saturday 54 giveaway

It is the 1st day of summer! Yeah! I cannot wait to spend the summer in the air on Delta jets as well as other airlines for a change (is that cheating on Delta?) and blog about the experiences.

First let’s get the technical stuff about SWAG Saturday out of the way. The rules are HERE and do not change from week to week so be sure and look at them. The only change will be the drawing will be held at some point during the day on Friday the 27th this week.

Then on to a very simple request from you for a shot via Random.org to win the $54 Amazon e-Gift code is just to tell me this:

“Where are you going for vacation this summer”? Or, if you are not going anywhere what fun things will you do as a stay-cation this summer works just fine too!

Have fun and thanks for reading the blog and playing along each week with SWAG Saturday. Lastly, if you are going somewhere, I hope you are using some travel point cards to make it almost free!- René
