Delta Creates New Miles-for-Merchandise Benefit for Elite Members
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: Feb 21, 2006)
Delta SkyMiles will soon be introducing a new miles-for-merchandise service, called ?Medallion Marketplace,? for its Platinum Medallion members.
Beginning in March, all current U.S.-based Platinum Medallions may log on to http://www.delta.com/medallionmarketplace with a SkyMiles number and pin. Platinum Medallion members will be able to redeem miles online for a variety of household and travel-related items, including electronics, home and garden items, outdoor equipment, hotel stays and gift cards.
SkyMiles is joining a growing number of programs in providing its members more options to redeem miles, at least in part to help alleviate the growing liability of unused mileage.
Frontier Airlines EarlyReturns, for example, launched a ?More Store? last year, allowing its elite members to use miles to bid on select merchandise.

I''m sure you''ve heard this 1000''s of times, but I absolutely detest Delta. I have 29,000 miles and never once is the "Sky Saver" available for award travel...it''s always the "Sky Choice" 50,000 mile option. Now, this merchandise option is for Platinum members only. What a joke. These 29,000 miles aren''t worth the powder to blow them to hell. No wonder I fly exclusively American.
