    This is not as great as the offer made a few years ago, when you got 100 SkyMiles for every $1 you spend, but it is still remarkable -- 40 SkyMiles per $1.

    If you buy 40,000 SkyMiles from Delta, it will cost you $1120 plus a 7.5% excise tax. You also, of course, do not get any flowers.

    But you can get those same 40,000 SkyMiles for $1000 and no excise tax and get one crapload full of flowers in the bargain!

    Sorry, only macarons for you...
    (Itried again the one on 23rd street... improving, but it is not France)
    On a side note: Do you do sales trips in places other than Italy? (EU-centered, though). As unbelievable as it may sound, I've been asked about it, and you're the only one in the shopping business I can think of

    Agreed, but when it's been a while since I last hit Laduree and I need a fix, it'll suffice.

    Not sure if discussing my business on the board is not a TOS violation, so I'll PM you about that. Thanks for thinking of me! :)

    Oddly enough, despite the offer I linked to in the OP, I just received an e-mail from Delta offering 15 SkyMiles per dollar at 1-800-Flowers.

    The 15 SkyMile offer is touted as being "for today only". :)
