Delta just brought back 25,000 bonus miles for 25 partners as well as lower threshold bonuses for members who find that many partner activities a stretch. (Registration required.)
|Unique Partner Activity||Bonus Miles Awarded|
Partner credits need to be earned between January 15 and March 15. Only one activity per partner is allowed (and for hotels, that means one activity per chain not per individual hotel, you can’t go from Hilton to Hilton or Hilton to Doubletree to earn more than one partner), only one Buy Miles activity is allowed, only one SkyRewards partner (e.g., SkyMall, LATHER, Organic Bouquet, Vinesse, Great American Days, Samsonite and Java City) activity is allowed, and only one SkyMiles Credit Card activity is allowed.
Partner airlines don’t count as a partner. And you can’t use a stay at a hotel chain and also transfer points from the hotel program into Delta, that would still count only as a single partner. A complete list of partners is available in the promotion’s terms and conditions.
There are certainly plenty of rules with this one, but if you play by the rules the reward is 25,000 miles!
