Don’t Wait! One Of The Best Promotions Of 2019 Gets Extended Another Week

For normal folks who don’t rack up tons of points from business travel or credit card spend, you need to take advantage of opportunities to score deals when you can.  In one of the rare instances I can recall, one of the best deals right now involves Delta.

Things I Find Interesting On Saturday, December 14th, 2013
