Airfare from where to where? Likely better options than going through Delta

likeuplifting

Amex has a larger variety of travel partners than transferring only to delta. Check the redemption because if it’s not 1:1, you’re going to get screwed on point transfer.

like

Always check to see the price in miles on each airline/website first before you transfer. Half the time Amex points get more value transferred to Air France / Flying blue than to delta (redemption on flying blue can be less miles). Rarely but it can happen, Amex travel portal can be a good option

Do we know if there is a sponsoring partner that oversees this benefit/ program that I could have more of a heart to heart conversation with? Not getting too far with the general email box and admin contact. From the benefit policy documentation, my understanding is that EY reimburses employees for surrogacy / adoption related expenses up to $50k lifetime. However, anything related to IVF or medical procedures has to go through insurance (also limited to $50k lifetime benefit). Continued…
