Delta SkyMiles Incentive Miles for Sale
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: Oct 2, 2011)
Through Nov. 30, 2011, Delta SkyMiles members can take advantage of a sale on miles through the Delta incentives program.
There is a one-time $75 setup fee to buy the incentive miles, normally used to give to customers as incentives for doing business with you, but anyone can set up an incentives account. The normal cost is 2.2 cents per mile - that's less than the usual 3.5 cents per mile that SkyMiles members spend through the buy miles program.
However, through Nov. 30, SkyMiles members are being offered bonus miles through the incentive program. Purchase 60,000 to 149,999 miles and you'll receive a 10 percent bonus; purchase 150,000 to 249,999 miles and you'll get a 20 percent bonus and if you purchase 250,000 or more miles you'll get a 30 percent bonus. The miles must be awarded within two years of purchase date and you must buy a minimum 60,000 miles.
This is worth considering in just a few situations. Such as, you are actually using the miles as a business incentive, or that you share the set up fee with other frequent flyers to get the cost down?and we suggest you never buy miles unless you have a specific award in mind to spend the miles.
