Frugal Travel Guy has the lowdown on a huge Delta bonus offer: up to 150% bonus on partner activity through the end of the year.
|Base Miles Earned||Bonus||Total Miles|
|10,000 or more||150%||25,000 or more|
As Rick points out,
For example: 20K Starwood Points usually earns you 25K Delta miles. Make the transfer now and you’ll get 62.5K of Delta miles. That is the normal 25K plus the 150% bonus of 37.5K for a 62.5k total.
There’s a long list of participating partners, but not all partners are included, so definitely make sure whichever partner you’re contemplating is on the list. For example, I did consider transferring American Express Membership Rewards points but they aren’t listed. Hoewver, amazingly, the Skymiles co-branded American Express cards are. So are transfer partners like Diners Club. And plenty of shopping options as well.
I’m not a fan of Skymiles but with such bonuses I certainly am, I could even stomach higher redemption levels, and don’t forget that Delta miles can be redeemed on Singapore Airlines (although getting more than one seat on a single flight is tricky).
