Getting bonus miles for doing nothing is almost like getting the upgrade at the gate. You don’t expect it, but when you get it, it’s a great surprise. The latest Delta bonus miles deposited in my account came with only the click of a button or two. The total was 1,250 redeemable miles and all I had to do was click the link in the email I received earlier this week.
I’ve received bonus miles this way in the past, but its always been about 500 miles. So the increased bonus miles let alone the bonus itself was a surprise. I didn’t do anything special to get this bonus, so it looks like Delta is randomly targeting members to offer additional bonus miles.
Did you get an email from Delta with bonus miles in it?
