Mercedes is offering 1000 Delta Skymiles for a test drive at ten ‘select’ dealerships, fortunately the one in my home town is included.
This isn’t nearly as lucrative as the British Airways offer from about 5 years ago which gave 10,000 miles for test driving a Jaguar — and of course British Airways’ family accounts allow you to combine miles from four different people towards a single ticket which meant that test drive offer was really worth 40,000 miles.
Still, if it’s convenient and if test driving a Mercedes is appealing, this is a reasonable offer.
The participating dealerships are:
- Alexandria, Virginia
- Atlanta, Georgia
- Cincinnati, Ohio
- Eugene, Oregon
- Lindon, Utah
- Northbrook, Illinois*
- Orlando, Florida
- St. Claire Shores, Michigan
- Valencia, California
- Tiverton, Rhode Island
* In Illinois if you actually buy the car, you get appointed to a Senate seat. [duck…]
