Bidding on Superbowl tickets with Delta miles is one way to burn through a large stock of Delta SkyMiles. I typically only see people use this many miles when they give up on finding low level award availability and finally book that Delta award to Hawaii. Don’t worry, I cancelled the Hawaii award ticket, it was more of a backup than anything.
Delta’s SkyMiles Auction site is auctioning off two tickets to “The Big Game” in New Orleans along with a Shannon Sharpe meet & greet and a $250 airline voucher.
- Two (2) tickets for the professional football championship game in New Orleans on Sunday, February 3, 2013
- One (1) $250 Delta travel voucher
- Meet & greet with Shannon Sharpe on Saturday, February 2, 2013
The current bid is at 362,000, and I it won’t stop there. There are 48 bids and about 31 hours to go before the auction closes.
I can only imagine these bidders are out of their mind or looking for a way to burn SkyMiles. Superbowl tickets are going for about $2200 on Stub Hub, which is high, but 300,000 – 500,000 SkyMiles can be worth way more.
I guess one lucky winner will walk away as a happy camper, either because they’ve scored a 10 minute autograph session with Shannon Sharpe or they just found a way to burn through a half million SkyMiles.
Everyone has their own value proposition for using points and miles. What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen done using points and miles?
