So what did happen?
|Message from e-Miles- January 2nd, 2013|
This (above) from my Delta e-miles account. The "Special Bonus" is what caught my attention. Sympathy points anyone? It looks like I'll be getting 250 miles/points for keeping my account active over the next 3 months. Seems very generous. As for the new earning partners...Amazon.com, yeah, I'm ok with that, although details are yet to be released on what the actual redemption value will be. I have another e-Miles account linked with Amazon, but frustratingly, there is no indication there either on how much the miles are actually worth.

I now have access to all the airline partners through my formerly-Delta-sponsored e-Rewards account. This is what I was secretly hoping for, so I'm extremely excited about this one! Technically since e-Rewards is an invitation only site, getting access to some of these airlines partners can be challenging (Hawaiian, Virgin, US Airways). Others (United, American, Alaska, Jet Blue, and Southwest) are a little easier after their invitation links went public. If you are interested in signing up through any of those programs, check out my earlier e-Rewards blog post.
