Delta challenge, platinum with 6 round trip flights

Read the fine print on the delta challenge - most of the fare classes in negotiated rates don't count for the challenge. Team just learned the hard way

@D2 - don't be deceived by that Delta challenge...if you read the fine print those 6 RT flights need to be full-fare/unrestricted economy class tickets

United will match.

When you're booking through the AMEX travel portal just make sure to expand the fare details tab. Make sure it isn't a discount fare

Will Delta not match based on any other status? (Aa or spg). I'm not planning on flying with them regularly. Just want to use status if available for few temporary trips.

AA might but you can only do that once every 5 years

^ thanks!

I’ve been a nurse for 10 years in Boston. I have a few years of sales that involved a lot of travel. Looking to step away from bedside nursing and get back into sales. I’m also a bit discouraged with my earnings and the wife wants to go down in hours to spend more time with the kids. So far I’ve applied to a few Novartis jobs and the interview process has started. Any other companies that you would suggest? I figure leveraging my medical knowledge would be best but I’m open. Thanks guys

Reserve vs SPG, thoughts? I got the reserve last year and have been using to pay all hotels, should I cancel now when the fee is charged again and go back to SPG? I like the flexibility of having points outside of spg tough

I just had dinner with some old friends and they are about to retire early. Part of their plan is to downsize their home, get a small condo and travel for 9-10 months a year. Does this seem crazy? I just can’t imagine it. I guess they figured the cost would be about the same but wouldn’t you miss the relationships. Wouldn’t your kids feel lost without having a sense of home? Anyone thought about this?
