Delta has crossover points with SPG

Lol hi Alex

For me, until AA switches to revenue based tickets it's all moot anyway. Maybe I'm biased as almost all travel is in first/business, but the number of miles I get on Delta or United from revenue based miles is so far ahead of AA that any other considerations don't matter. Now, if you said Delta vs United we would have more fun. United miles are more potent, but Delta you get a small kicker in SPG points. Not a big kicker: keep in mind you get 11 miles per dollar on delta/United so how much extra is a single SPG point per dollar?

The crossover points add up quite quickly but if you switch it may be all for not after Marriott announces the changes.

Delta and uber have crossover with SPG

Yes I know SPG points worth slightly more than delta or United miles, but still cross is like a like 10-15% kicker when buying plane tickets. For me united's GS and the easy upgrades it entails (e.g., ability to use GPUs on an international saver award flight), and the more potent United miles, makes it worth the slightly shittier United device.

Finally, I still keep diamond on delta just in case I need to fly it. You've got to stay diversified flying out of SAN!

If you think delta is the dark side and you are based in LA...bless your heart

My problem is that I'm gold on my way to platinum on AA so I'd be saying goodbye to AA status. I guess my question is whether it's worth it to start over at DL given spg crossover points

Delta has a fast track to platinum going on right now

OP ask about status match
