Now through August 16, 2015, Delta is offering SkyMiles members the chance to earn up to 1,500 bonus miles through their online shopping portal. As a reminder, American Airlines is offering a similar promotion where you can earn up 3,500 bonus AAdvantage miles through their shopping portal.
Earning through shopping portals is a great way to rack up miles for purchases that you would already make. You just head to the site first and then click through for whatever merchant you want to shop at and then you complete your purchase through them as normal, and in about a few weeks, you’ll see the bonus SkyMiles hit your account.
For this offer, here’s how it works:
- Spend $100 and earn 300 bonus miles
- Spend $300 and earn 700 bonus miles
- Spend $700 and earn 1,500 bonus miles
Keep in mind these bonus miles are in addition to the miles you’d earn with your credit card as well as the normal bonus miles you earn for shopping through the Delta shopping portal.
