In the previous post I highlighted a thread in which travelers are discussing Post Trip Depression (PTD) and possible cures. And now a new traveler’s disease has cropped up over on Milepoint – Post Redemption Anxiety (PRA).
I have recently redeemed my first international premium cabin on a Delta RT flight from IND-PVG. As I had time constraint to get in/out of the country, I did not utilize any possible stopover/open-jaw.
The cost of redemption was for 140k from IND-JFK-NRT-PVG-DTW-IND. Now that I’ve redeemed it, I’m wondering if it was worth it? ~mrwangkai
It seems we have a theme going here today. Maybe Tuesdays really are the most depressing day of the week.
Much like the Slow Travel Talk members in the post before them though, Milepoint members are quick to lend a comforting hand:
Everyone values their points differently but pat yourself on the back for booking a Saver level award space using DL miles. ~Jimgotkp
If it was the trip you wanted to book and you got it at the low redemption rate then I’d say it is a good deal. Just because others book differently doesn’t mean theirs is better than yours. ~Wandering Aramean
Don’t feel bad. You did well. I know there is always a feeling that you are leaving something on the table when you redeem like that but don’t let it get to you. Be excited about the trip. It would be like paying cash and then wondering if you could have saved 5% more or something. Don’t sweat it. ~daninstl
I don’t know about mrwangkai, but I’m starting to feel better already.
Still, thank goodness it’s almost Hump Day.
