Delta and Starbucks have announced a new limited-time promotion through which you can earn 1,000 bonus Delta SkyMiles when making purchases at Starbucks.
This is excellent news if you like to earn miles and frequently visit Starbucks for your coffee fix or yearn for a Strawberry Açai Refresher.
Let’s take a look at the details.
How To Register
To begin, it’s necessary to have your Starbucks and Delta accounts linked. To start the account-linking process, please visit either deltastarbucks.com or starbucksdelta.com. Once linked, you’ll receive a confirmation email with more details on how to enroll in the offer.
After linking your accounts, you will begin to receive targeted promotional offers from Delta and Starbucks.
Even if you are not specifically selected for this promotion, you can still earn 1 mile for every $1 spent on Starbucks purchases by linking your accounts.
To earn the 1,000 SkyMiles bonus, targeted SkyMiles Members must enroll in the Starbucks offer between August 23, 2023, and September 12, 2023. Once enrolled, you have 1 week to make 2 or more qualifying purchases at participating Starbucks stores.
Qualifying purchases include food, beverages, or merchandise purchases at participating Starbucks stores, excluding purchases of alcoholic beverages and Starbucks Cards. Each purchase should be at least $2 (excluding taxes and gratuities).
To make a qualifying purchase, you must use a linked payment method or a preloaded Starbucks Card registered to your Starbucks Rewards account. Alternatively, you can also scan the barcode in the Starbucks mobile app before completing your checkout.
The miles you earn from completing the offer will be deposited to your SkyMiles account within 10 business days. The miles earned as bonuses do not contribute towards achieving Medallion Status or Million Miler Status.
Is It Worth It?
If you’re a frequent Starbucks customer, receiving 1,000 Delta SkyMiles for the purchases you make anyway should be a walk in the park for you, and there’s no fee associated with registering for this promotion.
For example, if you visited Starbucks twice in 1 week after signing up for this promo and spent at least $2 each time, you’d get a bonus of 1,000 Delta SkyMiles on top of the miles you usually earn at a rate of 1 mile for every $1 spent, for a total of 1,004 miles.
We value each Delta SkyMile at 1.2 cents, which means you’d get a minimum return of $12 worth of miles on your Starbucks purchases during this promotional offer.Hot Tip:
This promotion from Starbucks and Delta is a good one, and if you visit the prominent coffee chain often, it should be easy for you to meet the requirements. If you haven’t already, make sure to link your Delta and Starbucks accounts and register for this offer at deltastarbucks.com or starbucksdelta.com before September 12, 2023, if you want to take advantage of it.
