    Nice, comprehensive list. Thanks.

    Q: Is the Canadian C1 MC available to non Canadians?

    Good catch, thanks. It looks like that is only good for Canadian members. I'll update the post accordingly.

    Too bad, too. I have a C1 plat I keep just for the no FTF and I was ready to call and convert it to the DL card.

    Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but Hertz has 500 bonus Skymiles per rental (in addition to your normal mileage earnings), register by March 31st, rent by March 31st.

    [edit] it's a one time bonus - rats !

    Excellent list, thanks. Note that if you sign up for the FedEx program by March 31, you earn an automatic 1,000 mile bonus, as well as 3 miles/$1 through March 31. After March 31 the regular mileage rate is 1 mile/$1. There is also a 500 mile bonus for your first and fourth shipments after enrolling.

    And it's possible to earn more than 10 miles/$1 at the Delta Shopping Mall if you want magazines. Both Magazineline.com and Magazines.com offer 12 miles/$1, and Magazines.com is currently offering a big 27 miles/$1 special. Hurry, the offer ends today! (March 3, 2011) UPDATE: The 27 miles/$1 offer is over, but Magazines.com new offer is still a good one: 20 miles/$1. No expiration date given.

    Wasn't there a 50k bonus for biz class flights from LHR --> JFK a few days ago? I'm sure I saw it a few places but all evidence of it seems to have disappeared...?

    So I just registered for that 50k bonus- it tells me on the registration page that I am registered, but it doesn't show up in my list of promotions in my Delta account though. I guess I should just send myself an email with the screen dump or something..?

    Some of the promotions take 24 hours (overnight, really) to show up in your list of promotions. Why some are instantaneous and others take time is one of the unexplainable mysteries of DL IT.

    Unfortunately, not everybody will be eligible for this offer. I was willing but denied.
    Oh well - I'm sure I'll be able to take advantage of other offers.

    FYI, that should read "register by March 31st, rent by May 31st."
