Switching Airline Programs
I travel just enough to earn a low tier status, currently Gold with AA. I am leaning to switching to Delta this year. I am up in the air as we will celebrate our 20th anniversary in August, most likely in the Caribbean. I need to switch my Amex Business Platinum next month and am torn because it would be great to use the 50% rewards bonus when we book the flight but i have no points with Delta as of yet and not sure if I should just hold off until 2018 to swap to Delta
Hi Clint–I’m not sure what the connection is between your AmEx Plat 50% rebate and DL travel. The AmEx rebate happens when you book your flights with your MR points in your airline choice in any class or premium cabins in any airline. If you go with the latter you should be able to book your tickets now. If you are planning to travel Y you only have to wait for a few more days and you can change your airline choice in the new year. Either way this should not affect your choices in day-to-day flying. Good luck!
