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 Purchase and fly one qualifying Delta-marketed and -operated flight at 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.

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.

Neither worked for me and I haven’t flown Delta in over 10 years.

I’ve flown about 10k miles on DL this year, have gold status from last year, and the offer also did not work for me 🙁
