Delta has a new targeted promotion, where SkyMiles members have the opportunity to earn up to 10,000 SkyMiles back per award ticket (up to 2 tickets), if they redeem for award of 50,000 SkyMiles or more.


Promotional Details:

Get a ten percent mileage bonus for Main Cabin Award Ticket redemptions of 50,000 miles or more when you fly from April 8 to August 31, 2015 – a thank you from us to you.

  • First, register here with your SkyMiles® number
  • Then, redeem at least 50,000 miles for an Award Ticket in our Main Cabin for round-trip travel between April 8 and August 31, 2015
  • Earn back up to 10,000 miles per ticket on up to two Award Tickets
  • Allow four to six weeks after your travel is complete for your miles to be credited to your account

Offer: Eligible members must first enroll in the promotion prior to booking travel in order to participate. Flights booked prior to enrollment will not be eligible for this promotion. Flights must be completed within the promotional period, which is from April 8 to August 31, 2015. Flights must be purchased at least 21 days in advance of travel date. Eligible flights must be booked in the Main Cabin, round-trip or single open jaw, and a minimum mileage redemption amount of 50,000 miles (plus taxes and fees). Only flights operated by Delta or Delta Connection® carriers are eligible and itineraries may not include segments flown by other airlines.

Bonus miles will not count as Medallion Qualification Miles or toward Million Miler status.

Bottom Line

If you’re lucky enough to be targeted for this offer, it’s not a bad deal since you’re looking at up to a 20% return on your miles if you were to redeem for a 50,000 mileage award.

  1. Your Bottom Line indicates it’s a savings of up to 20%, but the way I read the Terms/Offer, ” … Eligible members will receive a bonus mileage award of 10% of the miles redeemed, up to a maximum of 10,000 miles per ticket ….” and thus the savings (or rebate) is capped at 10% of the miles spent. Agree ?

  2. I don’t understand how certain SkyMiles members are targeted, and others aren’t. I’ve been raped repeatedly by Delta, paying up to 80,000 miles for a darned domestic award ticket. And here they’re offering this deal to “lucky” SkyMiles members? I’ve been DSM Gold for eight years, and I don’t qualify for this promotion?

    What do you think gives?

    Delta seems to be telling me “F*** you very much, loyal customer!”

    With the merger of AA and USAirways, I’m looking more at the greener grass on that side of the fence.
