As I was reading the hard-hitting, thought-provoking USA Today this evening, I was pleasantly surprised to see a new offer from Delta. For the remainder of the year, Delta is offering double miles on Delta and Northwest flights. The promotion is from July 1 to December 31 and registration for the promotion must be completed by September 30.
Delta Double Miles Promotion
It appears that you do not have to use your Delta SkyMiles credit card to purchase the flight(s) based on this statement: “Delta and Northwest tickets may be purchased with any form of payment to qualify for the bonus offer.” Take a look at the terms and conditions for yourself to reach your own conclusion. I will purchase tickets with and without the card and report back on the results. Regardless, this is a great and easy way to earn miles. Go sign up!
