Yesterday I received an e-mail from Red Roof Inn informing me that there has been a change in their RediCard program. As of today, February 1, 2013, they no longer offer Delta SkyMiles as a reward option. All member accounts are converted to Free Night Certificates as of today.
Previously, it was possible to receive 1,000 SkyMiles once 6,000 RediCard points were reached. This is no longer possible. Now members will be issued a Free Night Certificate upon reaching the threshold of 6,000 points.
This is the disappearance of another way of earning SkyMiles after e-miles and Opinion Points of the e-rewards program cannot be transferred to SkyMiles anymore.
Well, then I can earn free nights at Red Roof Inns instead. That is okay with me, but as I understand it, I need to call a US number if I want to redeem a free night. That’s a bummer. I don’t stay at Red Roof Inns often so maybe this changes until I earn one?
