I was on a plane when the GA came on and asked for a few volunteers. She had people raise their hands, and selected a few. ("I saw you, you, and you first.")

I can see they don't want to pay your friend a $20 tip on a $5 drink every time you fly. Also, I'm sure they get a big discount from the restaurants.

When I'm traveling with a companion and we get one upgrade, we (my wife) uses it. If we preferred to sit together, we'd decline the upgrade (I've done that). With a companion, we have the same...

It's being nice to the person you give the upgrade to, and anti-nice to the next medallion on the list who doesn't get it.

But only the person you can see exists/matters, right? That's why it's...

Last time I had that option, I was told that the Amex (or Visa) gift cards had (6 month) expiration dates, but the gift cards for everyone else (Delta, Amazon, etc.) never expired.

If you didn't buy those tickets, someone else would have, and they'd have asked for $2,000 for VDB. So Delta saved money by you buying them.

Hmmm... either the rate changed or I got the arithmetic wrong. A 25,000 points/night Westin, with a rate slightly over $200, on a 5-night stay. So it's now just over $.01/point.

I just booked a Westin, at around 1.9 cents/point (not counting the foregone points for not paying cash). That's about what Points Guy says they're worth, too.
