We’ve all heard the terrible news of Delta’s new revenue based loyalty system, but there is another “enhancement” that Delta didn’t announce which will immediately impact everyone of our Points, Miles & Martinis readers who may take a Delta flight.
As part of the 2014 elite packages that went out a subtle change was slipped in for some elites. This has a huge impact on the flying elites who have ever or planned to use the complimentary “Have One On Us” coupons for free drinks, etc.
Back in the good old days we used to get more drink coupons, but that is besides the point. The old drink coupons were bulky – some would even say clunky. They just didn’t work to fit nearly in your wallet.
Customers must have asked because they’ve rolled out a new “slim line” “Have One On Us” certificates.
The new “slim line” certs should fit nicely into any wallet or suit side pocket and no longer will you have to fold them or fumble around your bag for the old style certificate.
A good enhancement in my opinion, net the reduction in Job Well Done certificates, that will likely impact all your Thursday night happy hours.
Have you had a chance to use the new slim line certificates?
