I just recently booked a last minute Airbnb to a fun family friendly stay-cation spot. More on on that review to come. But, I wanted to point out a couple things about my booking. I did a little experiment based on a couple promotions that came out last week. I went through the Delta partnership page to earn the bonus 3 miles per $1 spent (usually 1 mile) on all Airbnb stays (when you book by April 30, 2017 and stay by April 30, 2018.)
Airbnb Possible Triple Dip With Delta
As a reminder, back in November, Delta announced a new partnership with Airbnb to Earn Delta SkyMiles. Now they are out with an offer where you can earn 3 miles per $1 spent on all Airbnb stays when you book by April 30, 2017 and stay by April 30, 2018.
But, I had also registered for this promotion Delta Earn Up To 25,000 Bonus Miles (Targeted?). So, I wanted to test out whether I would earn the extra 1k miles for booking Airbnb, a participating non-airline partner they earn miles with between February 1, 2017, and April 30, 2017. The jury is still out because the points haven’t posted to my Delta account yet. But, let’s take a look at a possible example:
If you haven’t signed up for Airbnb yet, you should definitely consider doing so right now because at the time of this post the referral credit is $40 off $75 booking! I have not see it this high in a while. Then, assuming that you book your first stay via the Delta partnership page, you could be earning 3 miles per $1 spent when you book by April 30, 2017 and stay by April 30, 2018. That would mean on a $1k stay, you are looking at 3k Delta miles. If you successfully registered for the targeted Delta Earn Up To 25,000 Bonus Miles promo, potentially you could be up another 1k Delta miles, for a total of 4k miles. Not bad.
If you like to book bigger places for more room on family vacations like I do and have a few Airbnb reservations to book this spring you could rack up some nice Delta miles.
When you book through Delta you see this at the bottom of the page while you search Airbnb:
I’ll post the results of my Delta miles once they post. But, if you haven’t signed up for Airbnb yet, you should definitely do so for the $40 credit. It could make your first stay with Airbnb very inexpensive! Most likely, you could benefit from a little getaway sometime this spring! Don’t forget that after you sign up via Airbnb referral for the $40 credit, that you can book through the Delta partnership page to earn the bonus 3 miles per $1 spent on all Airbnb stays when you book by April 30, 2017 and stay by April 30, 2018. I’m hoping to score the extra 1k miles from the promotion, but I’ll be happy with the 3x miles per $1.
