My wife redeemed 40k miles yesterday for a domestic award ticket. She is already registered for this offer as of june 24, 2010. Will she get twice the miles for all her eligible spending from June 24 till Sep 30? Or is it twice the miles miles after yesterday when she redeemed the miles?

I'm confused about this too. In for answer!

She will get them from July 1st to Sept 30th. You just need to redeem 10k or more by Sept 30th.

Late enrollment

I registered late on Aug 1st and redeemed 10k miles on Aug 2nd. I assume I will still get double miles for period July 1st to July 31st. Am I right?

This offer would be helpful except for those you want to clean out their Delta accounts and be done with them.

redemption for mechandise

Can I redeem 10000 for merchandise (some sort of gift card)? I emailed delta and they don't seem to know a thing. Assuming I redeem 10000 miles by September 30th, all purchases on Delta Amex card between July 1 and September 30 should earn double miles right?

I also checked if transfer of 10000 miles would count of qualifying redemption, Delta said NO.

Thanks!

What did you buy? Everything is so darn overpriced. Link, if possible :-)

10k= $100 Saks gift card. If you spend 10k then you get it for free.

I just redeemed for an upgrade on some upcoming flights to qualify this. I am assuming this is double miles of what I already earned from AMEX during the qualifying time period.

For example, from July 1 to Sept. 30 - I earned 5,500 miles on qualifying expenditures on AMEX. $4500 normal expenditure, $500 DL ticket.

I have already earned 4500 miles and 1000 miles for these expenses, total 5500.

I qualified for the promotion. So when it posts I should earn an additional 4500 miles (double what I already earned) and 500 miles (triple what I already earned double on). So I will get an additional 5000 miles for this promotion?

In total I would have earned 4500 + 1000 + 4500 (double promo) + 500 (triple promo) = 10,500 (with the first 5500 posted normally and the additional 5000 posted 6 to 8 weeks after 9/30).

yes, your final # matches what I'd expect.

But in my mind, it's just easier to think of it as 1pt/$ extra. This amounts to 2pts/$ for normal purchases and 3pts/$ for DL purchases.

If you've got the gold card, don't forget about the 5k milesboost point bonus at $15k. No double/triple bonus on this but now's a good time to work towards that.

I registered for this about 3 weeks ago, and just redeemed 10K miles today. Based on the previous, it seems pretty clear that I will earn double miles on my spend from July-Sept?

2x Macy's $50 cards? 10,000 Delta SM.
2x my Delta Amex spend of over 20k during the promo period? Priceless.


How soon will they credit the points?

below the "shopping" bolded heading on the left navigation, there is another bold heading titled "gift cards", and another below that "book a hotel/rent a car"

Thanks. I think I figured it out. I had to login to see gift cards. Otherwise it was not coming up. Ordered a $100 dillards gift card. Thanks OP.
