August 2011 in Review

I said I would start posting “The Month in Review” posts starting with the month of September. But, I thought I would float a trial balloon with the last week of August so that I could get the format right. Note, I didn’t list things like TopGuest, e-Miles, e-Rewards, MyPoints or My Coke Rewards. Those change pretty much most days, so it seems like noise. I will list transfers from those programs into “real” loyalty programs, so you’ll get the idea anyway. Also, I didn’t list things that happened in other family members’ accounts (even if I did them), because they would be mostly redundant with what happened in mine. Okay, here goes:

    Where do you go to answer trivia with “Audience Rewards” and to watch the “Bose video?” I don’t see any options like these to earn extra Delta Sky Miles at the Delta Sky Miles webiste.

      Hello and welcome!

      You can answer the audience rewards trivia for Delta here. You can find the answers to the latest Delta questions here. I post new answers for Delta, US Airways and Starwood when I see new questions.

      As for the Bose video, that promotion is over. The site that used to host it is now running a promotion that gives you 2 SkyMiles per dollar for buying Bose products. That’s less appealing 🙂

      Delta is one of the frequent flyer programs that I put effort into getting miles for. So, any time that I see a good promotion, or a way to get cheap/free/easy miles, you should see a posting.
