If you have an American Express card and belong to the Membership Miles program, here’s a chance to get some free miles just by doing a transfer to your Delta Airlines account. Every time you transfer Amex points into miles between July 26 and September 17, 2007, you get a 25 percent bonus for nothing.
So transfer 2,000 miles and you get 500 extra, which is more than you would get for most hotel stays or car rentals. Transfer 10,000 and you get a fat 2,500 miles, which is the equivalent of flying across the U.S.
If you want to really make the most of a frequent flyer program without being a business traveler, it’s deals like this that really get you to a free flight or upgrade. Get the lowdown on Membership Awards.
Delta flies to a lot of The World’s Cheapest Destinations and they make it a whole lot easier to cash them in for a free flight than, say, Continental.
