It has been almost two months to the day since I opened up a couple SunTrust banks accounts in order to take advantage of a generous Delta SkyMiles offer, but no miles have posted to my account. And it’s all my fault.
I’m not going to go into too much detail here, but I implore you to stay on top of your financial statements if you do not already do so. I have a financial manager who handles my money, but I neglected to tell him that I had opened up an account with SunTrust. It must have come as quite a surprise when he received account statements from SunTrust in the mail–so much of a surprise, apparently, that he closed the accounts without consulting with me…
But everything is now straightened out. I went down to Washington on Wednesday and re-opened my accounts. I again designated five family members as authorized users of my business account and was again promised 25,000 miles for each of them in my Delta account (at $55/each).
I know many of you have been waiting for weeks for me to report whether the bonus miles posted, but you’ll now have to wait a little longer. Sorry!
Remember, if you are interested in an account yourself, the SkyMiles promotion expires at the end of the year.
