Fastest way to get a few SkyMiles?
 
I need 61 SkyMiles for the mileage award ticket I would like to book. Are there any instant posting offers available right now? Can I book the ticket as a "hold" until they post?

Thanks!

hmmm, there's plenty of ways. If you like wine, I got an email today for up to 5000 bonus miles. Not sure how long it takes to get into your account though.

Fastest way (but not the cheapest) is to buy miles from DL. I've done this to top off an award ticket that I needed to redeem asap. Minimum is $70.00 for 2000 RDMs.

Do you have Amex Membership Rewards or know someone who does? You can transfer 1000 from Amex -> DL and it will show up instantly (will cost 60 fee I think).

yes you can hold the ticket for 48 hours (actually I think it's 12:01AM T+2 days from "holding" Once you place the ticket on hold, DL will email you the itinerary and specificy the exact day and time you need to redeem the award ticket so pay close attention to that.

Can you register a credit card with Delta's dining program (be sure to complete the online profile, so that you receive 3 miles for every $ spent) and have a meal at a participating restaurant? It won't post instantly, but it usually posts fairly quickly.

FYI, SkyMiles Dining posted in 5 days, so though not instant, is a quick easy way to "top off".
