Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

JFK to FLL?
Depends on class and price of ticket. A cheap Y ticket would be cheapest with MR through BP most likely

I have starwoods and looking for cheapest class.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I'm a newbie at this so your patience and understanding is immensely appreciated.

I found the following on delta:


My question is if this is "good"? I have enough starwoods to cover it and I'm not interested in business class or anything fancy (although I know that is what makes points so valuable) I just want to get  from point a to b round trip in the cheapest way so is there any reason I shouldn't book this?

Based on your answer, I have yet to move the starwoods to delta, how long does that take?

Thanks so much

Decent value for this specific itinerary.
Reports are 1-4 days transfer from SPG to DL.
Do you have any regular Amex to transfer? Those are instant..
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

True! Wouldn't it be worth your while to open a Delta card and use the bonus for this?
