Not too bad dtb...20,000 for a pair of around-the-world-business class tickets. I am looking for the down side to all of this.

All access to Delta sky club etc. and at least 3 stopovers. That is only 10,000 each. Would I be able to get my miles with this also? It seems like a hell of a deal. How long is the offer good for?

This is very similar to the "Around The World" travel offered by United Airlines and their Star Alliance Network which includes Lufthansa, Singapore, China, Thai,etc. I have used one of these options four different times, and each time booked in business and was able to upgrade to First Class using miles. The last time I used it I had an incredible trip and the First Class on Lufthansa to Beijing was fantastic...upper deck, dinner cooked to order, pajamas, etc. Very similar to a flight on Singapore from Dubai to Singapore and then on to Sydney. If I had the money right now, I would be tempted to buy this deal, even though it is on Delta and their alliance. If anyone is able... GO FOR IT..

I think this is an OK deal, but not necessarily a great deal. Most of the airline networks offer some kind of "around the world" deals, and I just tried the oneworld alliance with a dream itinerary and it came out to about $10,000 for business class... the same as the groupon deal. You can try it out at http://www.oneworld.com/flights/round-the-world-fares/oneworld-explorer/
