From now through July 7 , 2013 Delta SkyMiles Shopping is offering a one-time bonus of 1,000 points for joining and meeting the required spending amount. This promotion is limited to new members.
SkyMiles shopping is an online shopping portal that allows shoppers to earn SkyMiles for shopping online through the portal. You can access stores that you might otherwise shop at everyday, but when you access them through the SkyMiles Shopping online portal (or others like Chase Ultimate Rewards or the AA Shopping portal) you can earn bonus miles. For example, we typically shop at Drugstore dot com and they are offering a bonus 2 miles per dollar spent. Plus, we can typically find free shipping codes that save us the cost of shipping or going to the store to pick up items in person. The 2 miles per dollar is a rather low bonus compared to how high it can get during promotional periods. But you get the point, that shopping through portals for everyday items can save you time and earn you bonus points.

The requirement to spend $250 in order to receive the bonus makes this not as great of an offer. It might may sense to signup just in case you find something to pick up over the threshold that can’t be found elsewhere cheaper. I’d also keep an eye out for bonus mile offers as they could add value to the gimmicks.
