Delta Takes Some Sting Out of Getting Fleeced by Ticketmaster

Delta Takes Some Sting Out of Getting Fleeced by Ticketmaster
Jennifer Billock

Planning on getting tickets through Ticketmaster to a show or concert soon? Use your Delta Sky Miles number when you buy them and it will earn you miles toward your next reward flight, or anything else you could think to spend your Sky Miles on. The airline has a special portal just for this promotion.

As of June 3, Delta Air Lines is officially a partner with Ticketmaster. This means that if you’re a Sky Miles member, you can use your miles number when you buy tickets and it will earn you reward miles toward whatever you want to spend them on.

From now until August 31, the two companies are running a promotion for the new partnership that gets you three miles for every dollar spent. After the end of August, though, it goes down to one mile for every dollar.

Here’s how it works. Members of the Sky Miles program will go to Delta’s special portal, deltaticketmaster.com, enter their Sky Miles number, and then the portal will direct them to Ticketmaster. Then they’ll search like normal, buy tickets, and the miles will be credited to their account after sale completion.

The promotion works for both U.S. and Canadian dollars. Taxes and fees on the tickets aren’t included in the deal, though.

“Our mission is to make it easy to go to live events no matter where they are, and no matter what platforms people use to discover them,” Dan Armstrong, SVP and GM of distributed commerce at Ticketmaster, told AdWeek. “We like being involved with best-in-class platforms and brands. Travel is a natural extension of that, an area we have not had tremendous focus on. … Millions of people are flying on their favorite airline and have the opportunity to connect with our brand, [and] it’s a natural connection to go to more events and earn more miles at the same time. We view it as a win-win for fans.”

    Whenever I fly swiss, I sneak into the Business class lounge.
    I have star alliance gold, which lets me enter the Senator lounge. That is always full, and the food options are slightly worse than in the business class lounge. The two lounges are separated, but the shower facilities are common. So I enter the senator lounge, go for a shower, and from there I just go the opposite way, to the business class lounge.

    No idea what that has to do with Ticketmaster or Delta, but Star Alliance Gold gets you into BOTH the business class lounge and the Senator lounge. You’re sneaking into somewhere that you have full access to!
