Delta Points wrote that soon may no longer be able to get the SunTrust Delta Skymiles Debit Card.
And today, View From the Wing, writes that the SunTrust debit card is no longer available on the Suntrust website! But there still might be a way to get the card. This is the best card to pay your taxes with because you pay only ~$3 for up to $35,000 in tax payments which earn ~35,000 Delta miles!
SunTrust Delta Debit Card: Are Its Days Numbered?
The card is being phased out quickly, but you still may be able to get one by calling Suntrust at 877-809-5248 for a personal debit card or 888-454-0611 for a business debit card. But hurry if you want one!

Thanks to everyone who emailed and commented about their experience buying Vanilla Reload cards at Office Depot.
Unfortunately, many Office Depots removed the Vanilla Reload cards & stopped selling Vanilla Reload cards yesterday. We’re not sure about the exact reasons, but readers report being told that Office Depot was concerned about fraudulent purchases. However, a small percentage of readers still found them at Office Depot, but I wouldn’t expect this to last much longer. But there are still ways to take advantage of American Express Bluebird.
I suspect a larger reason is because lots of folks were buying Vanilla Reload cards with a Chase Ink credit card to earn 5X points. Frequent Miler wrote about this in May, but I never wrote about it in detail (I may have mentioned it in passing) until American Express Bluebird arrived in October.
[Emily & I do NOT get a referral for the Delta, Alaska Air, or American Airlines debit cards.]
As soon as I got my American Express Bluebird card, I reloaded it with 3 miles earning cards – the Suntrust Delta debit card, the Bank of America Alaska Air debit card, and the UFB Bank Airlines Rewards Checking account which earns American Airlines miles.
It costs $2 per debit card load to load your Bluebird with a debit card ONLINE, and you are limited to $100 per day and $1,000 per month, so I don’t recommend this method.
However, you CAN load your Bluebird card with a debit card for FREE when you reload at a Wal-Mart store.
