    Just received this exciting news! No need to dither with points and miles anymore. Now it is easier than ever to just rent a private jet!! I was trying to decide if I should get Ms. IkeEsq slipper socks or a lovely Verizon Wireless hockey puck for Christmas but now I know that this is the way to go . . .

    Not bad if you use certain credit card too:
    AMEX PRG = $50,000 x 3 MR per $ = 150,000 MR
    Chase Sapphire = $50,000 x 2 UR per $ = 100,000 UR

    You can take advantage of the 100% transfer bonus too if you want the Delta miles....

    Wow. I hope that one day I'll be able to even think about remotely trying to book these flights.

    Shouldn't this be in the Filthy Rich thread!

    Got the same email. Very impressed with myself for scoring two FC seats on Lufthansa - only to realize that I'm basically just chump change!

    If I'm not mistaken, one of the great benefits of the Delta Jet Card is that the funds can also be used for commercial flights in addition to the private flights... although I don't know if they are valid for deep discounted economy seats or if only for full fare tickets (even though they do give you a 20% discount on those). Thus, if you actually just do a lot of travel on Delta for yourself, family, or business, this is not a bad way to get free Diamond status.... and if you already have it, you can gift it to someone else.

    Downside is having to use the funds up within 2 years which is rough for those of us who don't have our own businesses or private expenses which have this level of spend.
