Free miles are the very best kind, and those who have Washington State addresses in the Delta SkyMiles program are likely in for thousands of free miles if they register for the 12status program which will award 1 Delta SkyMile for every passing yard that the Seattle Seahawks rack up during the regular season.
Last year the Seahawks had a total of 4,124 passing yards, so the odds are high they will be in that range again this year. They may also award a “pre-determined” amount of bonus miles for a significant Seahawks moment to be determined during the season, so you could get even more miles than just the passing yards. You can register for this promo all through the season, but it seems that retroactive miles will not be awarded, so go ahead and do it now so you don’t miss out on anything.
Those that register are also eligible for 12status Priority Boarding on Delta flights from SeaTac during the Program Period, which runs August 18th, 2017 – February 4th, 2018. This 12status boarding at SeaTac will take place after Sky Priority and before Zone 1 boarding.
In addition to the miles that every participant will get, they are also giving away tickets to games, pro shop gift cards, and VIP access at the Seahawks vs. Falcons game to some lucky folks.
Why are they doing this just for Washington State residents? Well, Delta is really trying to get as much of the Seattle market share as possible, so SkyMiles members there do get some special treatment in the effort to try and win them over from Alaska and similar.
Did you take advantage of this program last year? Will you be able to leverage your Washington State address to get some free Delta SkyMiles this year?
