    I have 124,000 miles on Delta and I am looking to trade them for American Miles. Points.com fees are too high to make sense. Anyone have any other suggestions?
    Thanks Eric

    Other than the fact that trading, bartering or selling airline miles could get you in trouble, do you think that is an offer that would get you a lot of takers knowing what you know about DL and how much skypesos are now worth?

    If you can't/don't want to use them for flights, look at hotel rooms. That often turns out to give an acceptable redemption rate.

    Hmm, Delta miles. I'll offer one thousand (1,000) AA miles.

    Just kidding, Welcome to MIlepoint!

    Delta miles are called Sky Pesos for a reason, good thing they do not expire for now, bad thing they are hard to use...

    30% of all credit card rewards expire unused..

    I give most of mine away, to family...

    Welcome Eric,

    I'm impressed that there still seems to be a positive price offer on points.com.


    Try to use them for aa BE award ticket, buying a few extra miles from DL if needed or transfer form AmEx if necessary, while you still can.

    I would donate them to charity and get a 50% tax deduction...
