Delta is running a promotion – ostensibly for passengers flying to or from LAX – that’s offering 500 bonus SkyMiles just for entering your SkyMiles account number.

Delta 500 bonus miles

The Deal

Eligible customers will be able to get the bonus miles up to 2 (two) times (1000 bonus miles) every 7 days. Flights must be both marketed and operated by Delta.
  • Passengers originating, ending their trip or connecting through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and flying on a Delta-marketed and -operated flight will be eligible for this offer.

Quick Thoughts

It’s not clear yet whether or not entering your SkyMiles number on the above landing page will earn you 500 bonus SkyMiles, but it’s worth a try just in case it works.

The terms suggest that you need to be flying with Delta in or out of LAX, but when registering for the promotion it gives the following message:

Your 500 bonus miles are on their way and will be added to your SkyMiles account in the next 48 hours.

Thank you again for your patience as we continue to work tirelessly to bring you a world-class travel experience at LAX.

As always, we look forward to seeing you on onboard again soon.

The fact that it says that 500 bonus miles are on their way is a good sign, but I don’t know if there’s some kind of auto-checking that’ll be processed by Delta’s system to verify that you’ve taken an eligible flight.

That message is a little confusing though seeing as it says the miles will be awarded within 48 hours, whereas the terms of the promotion state that you have to wait 4-6 weeks after travel is completed for the miles to appear.

This promotion is due to end on September 30 and there’s a limit of 1,000 bonus miles per week. Provided the bonus miles are awarded without actually taking a flight, that means you and each member of your family can earn 2,000 miles by the end of the month.
