  1. ….or why did you not grab a few rolls of MINT COINS on your way to buy them!

  2. Is Delta running the 100 miles per dollar promo again???? LOL………………

  3. That’s funny and all, but you’re avoiding the question. How many miles did you get?

  4. Classic.

    While she chuckles about the mint coins, she never objects to award tickets in first class.

    While I don’t hide too many things from my wife, I haven’t told her about the flowers promos.

  5. My wife is allergic to flowers; fortunately I have a mistress (JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!……about the mistress)

  6. Gary,

    I thought 1-800-FLOWERS delivered the flowers and put miles into your account? Are you underemployed all of a sudden? Oh oh… more reports coming from the Presidential Suits if that is true. Yikes!


  7. @ED I actually brought the flowers through the door, and they were delivered by 1-800-Flowers. They were delivered by a local florist, purchased via, and I earned 50 Continental miles per dollar. But you’ve sure been snarky in your comments recently, curious as to why?

  8. AMAZING, and ditto Nybanker re: not telling my wife about the flower promos – better to let her think it’s all about love
