Alert re: iDine bonus

Link to iDine thread with details and sign-up link below:

Cross-posted because terms & conditions specifically exclude meals prior to sign-up from retroactive credit, thus important to sign up as soon as possible.

Advise Wanted...

I currentley have Continental Idine and I want to switch to Deltas.
Anyone know how I can do this and register for this promo?
It will not let me delete my card off the CO Idine and when I click the DL Idine it just redirects me to the CO one.

HELP!

I change my program (Delta & American dining) depending on the bonuses offered. That was, until they changed the system when they pay for your loyalty with sticking with one (ie 3 mile=$1 or 5 miles=$1, etc..)

So to answer your question. Get another credit card, or debt card with a credit card number and add it to you CO account. Once it's loaded, then delete the current card you want to go to SkyMiles. Then, add your card to the Delta dining program. It sound like a lot of work but it really isn't. You'll have to remember your new user Id as it can't be the same as your CO ID. Even though the miles earnings are different, the account names are somehow linked and you can't duplicate a user name within the Idine program.

You are running up against the Rewards Network requirement that one cannot delete every card; at least one card must be linked to an active account at all times. If your goal is to close the CO account and open a new DL one with that card, you'll need to have Rewards Network do that for you. Call them.
