The weather is getting nicer and it is starting to feel a bit like spring, summer and traveling! We recently booked a trip to New Hampshire and that got me thinking about how others will likely be traveling. Whether it be for business, summer vacation, weddings, graduations, etc… I wanted to share how I received a free flight in February down to Florida by opening a new credit card and taking advantage of the points.
I signed up for a new credit card through American Express on Black Friday 2017 so I was quickly able to hit the necessary dollar amount needed to be spent in the first 3 months. So, if you have any big purchases coming up like new furniture, landscaping, grill, etc… I would certainly consider it. The terms are below:
Earn 50,000 Bonus Miles after you spend $2,000 or more in purchases with your new Card within the first 3 months of Card Membership and a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. Earn an additional 10,000 bonus miles after you make an additional $1,000 in purchases within your first 6 months.

My experience: I had never flown Delta but the perk of having your first checked bag being free was an added bonus in my book. I also had a connection that was cutting it close. And by close I mean, we hadn’t landed and my next plane was boarding, close. When we landed, a few people were nice enough to let me off before them and I made my flight but when checking my Delta app I had noticed they had already put me on another flight in case I missed this one. Had I missed my flight, I wouldn’t have had to deal with the customer service desk and would have known what gate to go to without any hassle.
There are also other benefits of the card that you can add through your online account for no cost that can help cheapen travel like:
Get a 1X $200 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend $1,000+ on room rate and room charges, when you pay for your stay with Hilton properties in Hawaii from 2/23/18 to 7/31/18. Book direct with Hilton. See terms for exclusions.
Get a one-time $10 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to make a single purchase of $40 or more in-restaurant at Olive Garden by 6/18/2018. See terms for exclusions.
