Delta and Starbucks have announced a new limited-time promotion through which you can earn 500 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.

Promotional Details

To earn the 500 SkyMiles bonus, targeted SkyMiles Members must already have their account linked to Starbucks. Then, you’ll need to make 3 or more qualifying purchases between today, March 25 and Sunday, March 31.

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 earning Medallion Status or Million Miler Status.

Is It Worth It?

If you’re a frequent Starbucks customer, receiving 500 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 three times in 1 week after signing up for this promo and spent at least $2 each time, you’d get a bonus of 500 Delta SkyMiles on top of the miles you usually earn at a rate of 1 mile for every $1 spent, for a total of 1,100 miles.

We value each Delta SkyMile at 1.2 cents, which means you’d get a rough return of $13 worth of miles on your Starbucks purchases during this promotional offer.

Hot Tip:

You can increase your 1x earnings at Starbucks when using a Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card or Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card as both earn 2x SkyMiles on restaurant purchases.

Final Thoughts

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 at deltastarbucks.com or starbucksdelta.com and make 3 qualifying purchases by the end of the month.
