since i spend every penny out of my own pocket for traveling. able to get a few more status miles is very important. but 3 hrs window is before the flight you want to fly, not where u originally book. so. it could be much earlier in the day. for example, flying in the morning with a red-eye booking. it is mostly not of interested to me since i aim at bump vouchers. and i only do it if i am sure there is no bump opportunity.
Overall I like the Delta SDC a little better. Yes it can not be done online like NWA, but it let's you choose other hubs, which could not be done on NWA. The hubs are important to me, since some of the smaller hubs I prefer, do not have enough flights to make stand by work .

However, 10 days later, it still hasn't come through. Will call them again later today.
The third time was a charm. Requested it again, and received the miles for original itinerary.

Delta's SDC is worthless if you don't have additional flight options within 3 hours of your booked flight. NWA's 24 hour window was much better.
