After recently scoring frequent-flyer tickets to both Guatemala and Mexico, I’ve gotten a second wind about earning airline miles. It takes some work, but with enough dogged determination you can turn 35,000 miles into an international flight, putting you well above the penny a mile mark.
So it always pays to watch for silly promotions that don’t even require you to get up from your chair. Delta is running one right now where you get 250 miles for going on line and taking a survey. They thing is, it’s a one question survey. You click once and you’re done. The question is, “What is your favorite in-flight pastime?” The results up to when I did it are pictured here.
What’s humorous about this though is it’s coming from an airline that has been cutting services to the bone. So if you want to watch a movie, better bring your own DVD player. If you want to read a magazine, don’t expect an on-board selection. If you want to catch up on work, bring an extra battery since you probably won’t find a plug. Maybe you’ll be seated next to someone from another country though. That way if you are in the 1% of respondents who wants to learn a language, you’re in luck.
