Thanks so much to one of my readers for forwarding me an email that said that he had been targeted for a one-day (January 31st through 11:59PM EST) only 500 Delta SkyMiles bonus for making any one purchase from any SkyMiles Shopping retailer. On Flyertalk it looks like others are reporting being targeted for a 250 SkyMiles version of this promo. Of course, not everyone was targeted….including me.
From the email the reader sent, it looks like they upped their miles per dollar payouts at some retailers for this special as well. If you are targeted for this deal, I would look to purchase something you would need anyway. Walmart and Sears are usually good retailers for practical items, and they both offer in-store pick-up so that you can avoid any shipping charges. Itunes is another good retailer to consider for a small purchase.
I haven’t seen language to indicate whether this is a one-time bonus, or whether you can make multiple purchases to get multiple bonuses. I’m willing to bet the intended use was for one purchase, but I have no idea. I am sure there will be some people who go for multiple purchases with multiple small purchases. If you do that, just proceed with caution, and save screen shots of the offer and terms and conditions.
So, check your email to see if you were targeted, and remember to make the purchase today since this is a one-day only promo!
