Verizon/DL: $5 for 2300 SkyPesos - 0.22 CPM

When will it end? The Cartera Cartel runs Delta's Mall too and 84fiero points out that you can get 2300 DL miles for purchasing a $5 charger at the Delta Mall. More proof that this is systemic and par for the course rather than a one-off mistake.

No interstitial T&C here, though the site is broken in a way that would suggest they might be trying to implement one! Can anyone get it to work?

That is not what I get when I click on merchant details at the delta related link the OP provided.

I ordered one. I took photos and video of the process (wanted proof that clicking on the more merchant details didn't give any other info)

But we are allowed to...

order more than one and still receive the 2300 miles, yes?

Any indication of whether multiple purchases are allowed?

I have a whopping 200 skypesos to my name, so 2300 for $5 isn't all that interesting. 23,000 for $50 or 46,000 for $100 or 92,000 for $200 on the other hand...

You probably won't get anything anyway...or maybe they will do a little something like they are doing on the AA issue. But I think in that case they are offering 2500 miles...even to those that ordered 2,5,10. It is a crap shoot...
