Delta is full of beans today which should help ensure their flights won’t arrive latte or be grounded because they’ve announced a new partnership with Starbucks Rewards. This perfect blend can earn free SkyMiles at Starbucks and free Stars on spend on Delta flights.
- Link your Delta SkyMiles & Starbucks Rewards accounts to earn the following:
- Double Stars on Delta travel days
- 1 SkyMile per $1 spent at Starbucks*
- Direct link to link accounts.
- Spend at Starbucks excludes taxes and gratuity.
A partnership between Delta and Starbucks isn’t what I would’ve imagined, although still not quite as unexpected as the InterContinental and Spirit Airlines partnership which never materialized. Being able to earn free miles and Stars though could make this the creamer the crop.
Linking your accounts is nice and straightforward as all you need to do is (French) press a few buttons. You’ll then earn double Stars on days where you visit Starbucks and fly with Delta, plus you’ll earn 1 SkyMiles per dollar spent at Starbucks on any day of the week – not just on days when you’re flying.
Even if Delta isn’t your cup of tea, if you ever visit Starbucks it’s worth linking your accounts in order to earn some free SkyMiles as they never expire. At the launch of their partnership, you also earned 500 bonus SkyMiles, with 150 Stars being added to your Starbucks Rewards account after your first Starbucks purchase, but that was only available through December 31, 2022.
