I LOVE this offer from Amex! Contrary to popular belief, there are some great redemption opportunities available with SkyMiles. I used 110,000 for a ticket from Los Angeles to Sydney, Australia in Delta One and just booked part of my trip to the UAE using them too.

If you live by a Delta hub *cough* Minneapolis/St. Paul *cough* this deal could be incredibly lucrative for you. Anyone feeling Paris this fall? Award space is wide open from MSP to CDG and all you need is 60,000 SkyMiles and $82 for a round trip ticket.

All-In-All

For me, the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express is a no brainer. This sign up bonus is the biggest I've ever seen so I wouldn't wait around for a better deal. You've already got your trip to Paris booked so just apply, meet the spend requirements, and you're good to go!

What's your favorite use of Delta SkyMiles?
