Delta Skymiles Transfer Bonus!

Through August 31st, Delta Airlines is discounting all Skymiles transfers between accounts.  Skymiles normally cost about one cent per mile to transfer, and that is excluding the $30 "transfer fee."  With this promotion, you are paying about half a penny ($0.005) per mile and the fee is also waived.  


Transfer Promotion Details
I know that I have hammered Skymiles in a previous post, but there is a lot of earning/redeeming potential with them.  Skymiles are one of the easiest points currencies to acquire, especially with lucrative credit card sign up bonuses.  In fact, Ms. CCT just received a targeted offer in the mail for a whopping 50,000 Skymiles if she signed up for the Delta American Express Gold card.

If you are near an award goal (perhaps just shy of 25,000 or 50,000 Skymiles), then taking part in this promotion makes sense, especially if family members can combine their Skymiles into one one account to make award travel possible.  However, Delta has run even better promotions in the past.  Late last year, they offered a great 100% bonus on any transferred or purchased miles.  I would advocate jumping on that, but this seems a bit ho-hum.




Still if consolidating miles into one account is feasible, this transfer might make sense.  Keep in mind that their online award booking site is often an exercise in frustration.  Finding award tickets at the "low" level can oftentimes be nearly impossible.  However, there are workarounds and some good tricks to employ (details coming in a future post).  Drop me an email if you are looking to book a Skymiles award ticket.  I can help.

Until tomorrow everyone!
