Get 1,000 Delta SkyMiles for Free

If you’re a frequent (or even semi-frequent) Delta traveler, you might be interested in this offer that just showed up in our mailbox…

If you signup to receive SkyMiles promotions via e-mail by December 31st, you’ll get 1000 free SkyMiles credited to your account. It’s not a huge amount, but it takes very little effort to complete this offer.

Simply visit and give them your SkyMiles numbers. Next, fill in your name and e-mail address and click submit. From there, you should receive a confirmation e-mail (it took about a day for mine to show up). Click the link in that e-mail, and you’re done. That’s it.

We’ve just sent you a confirmation email. Once you click to confirm, you’ll be set to receive our best deals, promotions, and more right to your inbox, and your bonus miles will be automatically credited to your SkyMiles account.

While I’m no fan of additional junk mail, there doesn’t seem to be any requirement that you stay signed up for the long term if you don’t want to keep receiving the messages after the free miles post.

  1. I wonder if this is a targeted offer. I tried to sign up and got the following message: “We are sorry, the SkyMiles number you entered is not eligible for this offer.”

    No big deal. It was worth a shot. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yup, same message for me. Perhaps I need to get off their mailing list first.

  3. Thanks for this article. It reminded me of a report I heard on NPR this August one sunny afternoon. The report discussed free air miles for those who purchased coins from the US Mint at face value, in order to better circulate them. The reward was a ridiculous amount of air miles. However, people tricked the system and as soon as the coins arrived they deposited them into their bank accounts and received the air miles without the work. Have they put an end to this program or have you heard anything about it?

  5. Possibly a scam? Or maybe too many people tried signing up for it? I think I’ll use my judgement on this one! I have too many junk e-mails in my inbox already! But I sure do love to fly!

  6. To clarify, this was a snail-mail promotion that showed up in our (real) mailbox. It may have been a targeted mailing, though, which is why it may not be working for some. This would be particularly likely if you are already on their e-mail list.

  7. I followed the instructions in the promotional letter but when I got on-line, I could not even find a place to insert my SkyMiles number. Just too complicated for this poor soul to follow.
