If you are a Diamond 360 or a Delta Diamond Medallion for 2020 you can expect to see the 2020 Membership Kit with BragTags arriving in the mail this week. What is inside?
I can not speak for the Delta 360 mega spenders (my guess it theirs is a bit more impressive – they have been in the past), but for Diamonds, you get the above envelope.
Delta takes the time to use the mailing to include an advert for Delta Vacations. I have never used them as I like much more valuable cash back from portals like one of my favorites TopCashBack (Earn $10 for new users) or the sweet Rakuten – was Ebates (Earn $10 for new users) for my trips vs. SkyMiles bonus points that keep lowering in value year after year.
Then the tags themselves (plus a reminder that SkyMiles is runner up to the US NEWS real reward winner Alaska Airlines). They have, for two years in a row now, gone BACK to metal tags from the very cheap plastic ones they gave my wife the one year she earned Diamond status.
You get four of the JWD or Job Well Done coupons that Delta “mainline” folks can turn in for cash rewards.
Please notice the fine print. If you give these to Delta “looking” folks that is DGS or Delta Global Services people (think smaller airports) or Delta “looking” jet people (think all the Delta connection people) they can not use them. This is one of the reasons I make up my own reward cards and give them out all year when I fly.
Lastly, you get cheap rubber #BragTag straps that tend to break off. Below the shot above you see what was included in years past that was metal (#ProTip – you can order them cheap here on Amazon that will NOT break off). Just one more way Delta has for 2020 slightly cheapened the Diamond Medallion experience.
Again this year Delta has NOT included your million miler status on the tags. Last year I got the hideously ugly and cheap plastic million miler tags (scratched before use) and I have not used them nor have I got a new set this year. This is one of my biggest gripes about the changes to the tags over the years (well, other than the plastic year that is).
Also, you do NOT get a real SkyMiles membership card as in the past. Why does this matter? At some airports, they want to swipe the card to give you your free bag perk (yes, this has happened to me). Please remember sticking a #BragTag on your carry-on can help you now and then — so consider using these metal tags on your bag.
Have you got your elite kit this year? Impressed? – René
