Delta released details of a new promotion today as they are giving away 1,000 free Skymiles if you open a Delta Skymiles frequent flyer account. This is for new account signups only.
This offer appears to be targeted at Hertz customers however 1) there is no way for them to verify this & 2) chances are maybe you were a Hertz customer many moons ago so technically that would qualify you anyway. In my experience, Delta will honor this promotion for anyone who signs up for it.
Now if you’ve flown Delta before, I hope you already have a Delta Skymiles account. But if not, this is a great chance to signup for their frequent flyer program and earn miles for it. Delta Skymiles do not expire so it doesn’t matter if you have no plans to travel on them anytime soon. Additionally, if you apply for a Delta credit card in the future, you will need to link it to a Skymiles account.
Bottom Line – This is a no-brainer for 1,000 free miles. I would have your whole family signup for an account if they have not done so already – mom, dad, even the kids! It’s never too early to start building your points & miles portfolio.
