Delta currently has two targeted 1,000 miles bonus offers, one much juicier than the other:
- Earn a one-time, 1,000-mile bonus and $100 Delta Vacations e-certificate for purchasing a qualifying flight at delta.com. Purchase and fly one qualifying Delta-marketed and -operated flight at delta.com between September 6, 2012, and December 6, 2012, and earn 1,000 bonus miles. A qualifying flight includes any Delta or Delta Connection carrier flight. Codeshare flights operated by carriers other than the Delta Connection carriers are excluded from this offer.
- Earn 1,000 bonus miles for each qualifying Delta- or Delta Connection-marketed/-operated flight segment purchased between August 24 and December 31, 2012, for travel between August 24 and December 31, 2012. Codeshare flights operated by carriers other than the Delta Connection carriers are excluded from this offer.
I would assume the target audience for both offers are those SkyMiles members who have not taken a flight in some time. I have not been on a paid Delta flight since early May 2012, but I did not qualify for either offer. While the T&Cs clearly state that the offers are “specifically for the SkyMiles member who received the promotion”, why not take a minute and see if you have better luck than me.
