PWM at SFO Sky Club

As a SkyMiles member you now have the option to use your miles towards the purchase of any premium beverage. ... Pay with miles is only available in the SFO club.
The bartender said it's 100 miles = $1.

You can buy 2000 sky pesos for $70 or $0.035 a mile.

"The bartender said it's 100 miles = $1."

So 100 miles cost $3.50.

Seems like a fair exchange to me - OR DOES IT ???

Got to be desperate for a drink that should have been free with club membership !

Use Your Miles to Pour on the Premium

I saw this little laminated card in the DCA SkyClub this morning:

USE YOUR MILES TO
POUR ON THE PREMIUM

Lift your spirits when you visit THE BAR
at Delta Sky Club. As a SkyMiles member
you now have the option to redeem miles
for any premium beverage.

Valid only for guests 21 years and older. All SkyMiles
program rules apply. To review the rules, please visit
Membership Guide & Program Rules. All Delta SkyClub
rules apply. Please drink responsibly.

----

I can't find any reference to this promotion in the on-line membership guide. The bartender here tells me that 100 miles buys an $8.00 premium drink. YMMV.

If that's true, it's an incredible redemption ratio. Heck, at that ratio, just buy the bottle (about 1700 miles).

Someone posted about the same program in SFO, so sounds like its being tried out. I think there it was $1=100 miles, so that $8 drink would be 800 miles.

If you can get a drink for 100 miles then yeah that is a great deal.

That was me:

it's possible I had a miscommunication/misunderstanding. I definitely like 100 miles per drink better than 100 miles per $1
