Mrs. Weekly Flyer checked her inbox this weekend and noticed a special gift from Delta for 250 miles. The offer was noted as a way to say thanks for having her onboard a recent flight.
Loyalty goes both ways. Here are 250 bonus miles.We enjoy having you on board. That’s why you are receiving 250 bonus miles. It’s just our way of saying “Thank You.” Your miles don’t expire, so this gets you closer to your next award ticket.
I was surprised, because I’ve never seen this bonus offer. Have you? Here is the offer details:

It looks like it is a targeted offer to those who don’t fly often on revenue tickets with Delta. I think Mrs. Weekly Flyer received this offer after flying on a revenue ticket when she normally just gets booked on an award ticket from all the miles I earn. Anyway, it is a nice gesture and “thanks” from Delta. Even if it is only 250 extra miles, that is 250 more miles than she had before.
