Re: Approved Delta Skymiles

Welcome to the family.


With a 1k CLI, they may have pulled more than one CR.  Sounds like your file was a border-line approval for them.


Good news is, provided you treat them right, it will be raised to $3k in 61 days from activation (YMMV)


Grats again.  How many miles did you get? 30k?
