Delta just announced a baggage guarantee, where if your checked bag doesn’t arrive within 20 minutes to the carousel, you’ll receive 2,500 Delta SkyMiles. They are currently testing this benefit out so right now it’s just being offered from February 19, 2015 through March 31.

Terms & Conditions
Eligibility: 20-minute Bag-to-Claim Guarantee bonus-mile offer valid on travel between February 19, 2015 through March 31, 2015. Offer valid on all domestic flights within the U.S. 50 and Puerto Rico, marketed and operated by Delta Air Lines and Delta Connection® carriers. Itineraries that include codeshare flights are eligible as long as the final leg is marketed and operated by Delta Air Lines or a Delta Connection carrier. Customers must be a SkyMiles member in good standing at the time of travel and award of bonus miles to be eligible and must submit a request form with Delta upon completion of travel. Requests must be submitted via delta.com/bagsontime within three days of flight’s arrival. All claims must be submitted by April 3, 2015. Limit one request per passenger per outbound or return travel regardless of number of checked bags; requests for multiple trips must be submitted separately. Time to baggage claim will be as measured by Delta’s baggage tracking system, where available; lost, mishandled, and damaged bags are excluded. Oversize and overweight baggage and special items are not eligible.

Bottom Line

I’ve rarely had my bags delivered in less than 20 minutes when flying Delta, so I look at this as a way to easily earn Delta SkyMiles. Hopefully this offer rolls out permanently!

  1. Don’t know how they are going to measure the wait time. The online form asks for pretty basic information… Submit for all flights with checked bags!

  2. My luggage including oversized took 15 minutes from when the door of the plane opened today at MSP.

  3. Uh, to be honest, I rarely have a problem with Delta delivering bags in that time frame, with over 30 checked segments a year. I WISH and would pray the remaining legacies did the same, it’s one reason I hate flying American.
