My first football hero was Billy “White Shoes” Johnson! As a boy who grew up in
It was a struggle, but I adjusted (eventually). I’m a Packer fan now, and a better man for it! The lesson I took from that horrible year was applied recently after Delta took Northwest Airlines and made it their own. I live in
I did some digging today and I learned that I could transfer everything, my miles, account balances, status, everything, over from NWA to Delta by myself, using Delta’s website. I did it. Now, I’m a fully statused living breathing member of the Delta SkyMiles team and when they finally decide in a few more months to force the switch onto everyone else, the joke will be on THEM because my account is already done, safe, and ready to fly! Here’s what to do:
- Make sure you have an active Delta frequent flier account.
- Login to Delta’s website using your account credentials.
- Move your mouse and hover over the “Manage Account” link and select “Link WorldPerks Accounts”
- Enter your WorldPerks account and pin number.
- You should see the number of miles you have in your Worldperks account from NWA displayed there. Enter this total amount into the “Amount you wish to transfer” box.
- When you’re finished, your NWA account will have a “0” balance and your new Delta account will have all of your miles. Moreover, since your accounts are now linked, your status will carry over too.
Next, I took into consideration that my Visa Worldperks credit card (the one I use for personal expenses while on travel that gives me miles for dollars spent) would soon be useless. I took advantage of the fact that the Delta Sky Miles AMX card is giving 20,000 miles to new customers so I applied for that card and cancelled the Visa.
I still have a soft spot for the Titans, since the Oilers never won a Superbowl. Also, I feel a bit nostalgic every time I look in the sky over
