GetAbstract – 10,000 Delta Miles for Modern Cliff Notes Service

A rather strange (to me) offer of miles for subscribing to an online service:

Access over 4000 best-selling business books—each succinctly summarized in five pages, and earn 10,000 SkyMiles. GetAbstract’s expertly-written summaries are available online, 24×7, downloadable to your PC, PDA or iPod.

I can’t imagine I actually want this. 12 months for $299 or 6 months for $179, and either apparently earns 10,000 miles.

At 1.79 cents a mile it’s a bite more than I would be willing to spend to buy Delta miles (a penny is my limit) but if anyone finds this even remotely appealing it’s likely a good deal.

Update: that’ll teach me to read promos when I first wake up in the morning, before my coffee. The offer states:

You receive 10,000 Delta award miles for a one year subscription!

And a one-year subscription is $299!

Again, only worthwhile if something like this interested you anyway, certainly not just for the miles.
