How Did I Become the Million Miler Mom?
Back in 2003, I was planning to study abroad in South Africa and, at the time, the only carrier that flew between the US and South Africa was South African Airways. Since it was a long-haul, the travel agent helping my classmates and I recommended signing up for the Delta SkyMiles program since we would earn the equivalent of a domestic round trip.
I graduated college and started to travel on my own and was about 75% Delta/25% other carriers. I soon learned that the key to earning miles and getting the upgrades was loyalty and I soon became an almost exclusive Delta flyer. I achieved Medallion status in my mid-20s and have maintained some level of Elite status for more than a decade (having 3 kids has set me back a few times but I have always gotten back on track quickly). Between my Delta credit cards, my loyalty to Delta (and the SkyTeam Alliance), I am fully reaping the benefits. In 2019, I was upgraded 66% of the time as I flew over 65,000 miles.
I am very, very close to Million Miler status and started this account to lead up to this milestone. Hoping to achieve this by 2021 as my 2020 plans were derailed by the pandemic.
Work with Me!
My goal with starting this account was to inspire other people to travel – whether it is a particular property or place or just a region in general, it brings me great joy when someone else is inspired to plan their own trip as a result of my content.
Now, more than ever, I believe in supporting the travel industry as much as possible which is why I am not expecting a free ride. I am happy to pay my costs (full or press rates) in exchange for access to exclusive experiences that I can feature on my blog and in my social media accounts.
