In a previous blog post, we spoke about many partnerships available where a user of ride-hailing services such as Lyft and Uber can earn points, credits, or discounts. While we think about rental cars every day, there are frequently times when other forms of transportation (like ride-hailing) better meets our needs due to factors such as convenience and price. So we're happy to take advantage of offers such as picking up Uber credits when shopping with a Visa card at select stores or earning frequent flyer points/miles with Lyft. And for selected Delta SkyMiles customers, it's currently possible to earn 1,000 bonus Delta SkyMiles for a single Lyft trip.
The promotion is actually a Delta offer for Airbnb and Lyft, where eligible SkyMiles members can earn 2,500 points by using both services before the end of 2017. However, individuals who successfully enroll can earn 1,000 miles for using just one of the services, Airbnb or Lyft. Among our team, I received the e-mail directly (and registered) while our most frequent Lyft user didn't receive the e-mail (or deleted/ignored the e-mail) and was still able to register. And with the season of holiday parties coming upon us, we're both going to pick up an easy 1,000 bonus miles from Delta for a Lyft fare we would be paying anyway! And while it's not always easy to use Delta's SkyMiles, we're patient enough to wait for good deals and flash sales.
