The Basics: Delta SkyMiles

When you travel, register for loyalty programs.  Even if you think you may not travel on a specific airline frequently or stay at a specific hotel brand, it's good to sign up.  I've been a member of American Airlines AAdvantage program for years as well as US Airway's Divdend Miles.  However, in recent years I've focused much of my travel on Delta and I've come to know the SkyMiles program fairly well.
