    I've got 2 RT left this year and haven't even touched my Delta Platinum $200 credit. What's the best way to burn this? If I buy wifi via the delta site, will that be applied to the credit? I'm thinking I might just need to buy all of EC a round of drinks next time I'm not upgraded.

    What have you used this for in the past? Strategies???

    DL SC passes are on sale again, IIRC four for $99, to be purchased from a SC dragon. Can you use some? They should be transferable and good for a year.

    Can you use them to purchase a 3 yr membership to the SC? IF you are getting a discount, not a bad deal to knock another 200 off.

    You can buy gift ecerts in $50 increments. All of mine have been reimbursed 3-4 days afterwards and I even received 50 membership reward points with each transaction. It might be possible to get reimbursed for purchasing Skymiles with the boost offer that follows purchasing a ticket - $59 for 3000 Skymiles. At about 2 cents a SkyMile its priced above what most people would consider fair value but could be worthwhile in some situations.
