But this month, Kelly launched TPGtv—a new way for travelers to see exactly what they can achieve by earning elite status and banking miles.
His first episode spotlights his September trip to Ghana, which he managed to book in Delta’s business class for an out-of-pocket expense of only $5.60—thanks to wisely-used rewards miles.
Kelly talks viewers through the details of how he accrued enough Delta SkyMiles to score the elite seat, and highlights all the pleasures that come with flying Delta One: the Delta Sky Club lounge at JFK’s Terminal 4 (tapas sampler, glass of wine) and the lie-flat seat best appreciated on a nine-hour flight to Africa.
