Here’s a Delta secret that is a sure fire way to not let your Delta drink cerficiate expiration date pass without putting them to go use.

If you earn Delta Elite status like I do, I’m sure you get Deta drink certificates. These drink certificates are great for a wine split or cocktail. Definitely a nice way to take the edge off on a long trip or relax on a vacation.

But these drink certificates come with an expiration date. Sometimes the expiration date comes due and they go to waste. Well I’m here to tell you they don’t have to, and there is an easy way to use them all up in one fell swoop.

Delta Drink Certificate Expiration

During your last flight of the year, take out your certificates and kindly ask if you can redeem your drink certificates for a few cocktails.

I’m sure the results will leave you feeling better.


Bottom Line

The flight attendants are sure to oblige requests for “minis” and you’ll be walking away with a few drinks. The best part of it all is you’ll put your drink certificates from status to good work.
