Something so exciting, so unusual, and so joyous has happened that I just had to blog about it.  I booked a domestic 25,000 mile “saver” award using Delta SkyMiles.  I know..I know….  I hated using miles for a ticket I could buy for $200 bucks.  But let’s face it, I’m not likely to be able to use SkyMiles for something like the award seats I want to Europe next summer, so I figured what the heck.

In fact, I’d already purchased regular tickets from DCA to MIA when I decided to just check SkyMiles availability.  Much to my surprise, there were several options available including Delta’s new nonstops to Miami from DCA.  So I canceled the tickets I’d just paid for, and quickly booked SkyMiles award tickets for 25,000 miles each.  It’s gotta be saying something that I find this to be exciting news?  🙂
