Quick Hits: Delta SkyMiles Bonus & Free Avios
There are some great deals going on right now that I thought I would just touch on briefly.
As I alluded in my post Burn Your Miles Wisely, through March 31, Delta is offering a 75% bonus on purchased SkyMiles.
While normally Delta SkyMiles can be purchased (up to 60,000 in a year) at a rate of 3.5 cents per miles, through this offer you are able to get them at a rate of 2 cents per mile. This is great if you are looking to top off your account for an award ticket or looking to play the mileage upgrade game. Tip of the hat to One Mile at a Time has a great post on this, which can be found here.
Also, per The Points Guy, you can receive 3,000 British Airways Avios points–FOR FREE by signing up for a free-trial of RealtyTrac.com. Just make sure to cancel your membership within 7 days if you don’t want to be dinged with the $50 monthly fee.
There was some skepticism about whether or not signing-up for a free trial would work for earning the 3,000 Avios points. Although I am still waiting for my “purchase to post,” TPG has verified that the points will at least post as pending!
