Do you have trip coming up? If not, what is your dream trip? Let us know how many people and where you want to visit. *
My wife and I are very big on a dream beach vacation. When we got married we didn’t get a chance to enjoy a honeymoon because I was working for the government and needed no head back to DC after our wedding. We now have a son (who we love very much) but it has caused us to delay traveling, until now.

First Class to Sint Maarten on Delta 120k Points

We searched Delta at $2,068 or 120k points this flight only gives  you $0.017 per point. Between the high number of points, the fees, and the miserly per point rate, this flight is no value.

Next we searched American Airlines which prices up at $1,452 or 100k points. With a value of $0.015 per point this flight is only marginally better than the Delta option and is also not worth consideration.
