Delta is back with another promotion awarding Medallion Qualification Dollars when booking hotel stays, vacation rentals and car rentals via Delta. Whether that’ll be worth it though is another matter.

Quick Thoughts

For someone shooting for Delta status this year, taking advantage of this promotion might make sense. However, be aware that you could be forgoing better deals, elite status benefits and earnings.

Delta’s booking portals are powered by Expedia, so the prices should be competitive, but you might be able to find better deals through other OTAs (Online Travel Agencies) or by booking directly.

Booking hotels via the Delta portal(s) means that you won’t receive elite status benefits, earn hotel points, get elite night credits, etc. It also means that you’ll be missing out on shopping portal earnings as well, so earning only 1 SkyMile per dollar plus 1 Medallion Qualification Dollar per dollar spent might not be worth the opportunity cost.
