New Partner activity must be completed by June 30, 2017.

Bonus miles post several days after base miles.

Hits expected to result in acquiring miles for less than USD 0.01 per mile:

Skymiles Shopping ($1 Groupon purchase) - 2 + 1000
Skymiles Dining ($2 drink purchase) - 6 + 1000
2K Club Carlson (worth ~$8) - 200 + 1000
1K Amex CA MR (worth ~$14) - 750 + 1000
1K Amex US MR (worth ~$16) - 1000 + 1000
SuperShuttle ($10 no-show ride from airport) - 50 + 1000

Amex US MR and Amex CA MR may not count as unique hits. Not clear if Delta Amex will count as a unique hit from Amex MR.

Here I found a list of all the credit card with the best Miles Membership rewards. This site constantly keeps this list up to date.

i got 2 1000 pt bonuses also, but with no description. I believe these were Delta credit card spend and Delta shopping.

I haven't transferred any hotel points or AMEX MR points yet. Anyone only transfer points and received the 1000 points bonus yet? I say "only" because there is no description for bonus points, so best data point would be someone who only transferred points out from a partner.

I transferred 1 Starpoint (SPG) on March 30.

The 1,000 Delta bonus miles posted yesterday.

It's the only qualifying activity that I had.

I got 2 1000 pt bonus, and I know exactly where they are from. Skymiles dining and transferred 200 Club Carlson points. That is the only Delta activity I have.

How does one transfer only ONE Starpoint?

I tried to do Starpoints-to-Delta Skymiles transfer on SPG's website.
Minimum amount of Starpoints that one can transfer is 2,500.
This ain't worth it even for 1,000 bonus Skymiles.

Does one need an SPG Amex card to transfer only 1 Starpoint?

Must be Starwood Platinum to transfer only 1.

Just saw this promotion, thanks! Lyft should be an easy way to get a new partner credit.

Edit: just saw my bonus post for two partner offers. I assume it's for the skymiles shopping and for Lyft, which are the only two I've used. I also got 60 points for taking a Lyft to the airport. However, I also earned 30 jetblue points for my ride to the airport (it texted me to let me know) so it seems like you can double dip with lyft rides to the airport?

Just saw bonuses post for Lyft and SkyMiles dining in one account, and a Starwood hotel stay in another.

For a data point, I've had bonus points hit for:

              Lyft posted really fast. Everything else has been slower to post

              Here's an idea for anyone contemplating a cheap way to generate SuperShuttle activity, recycled from the USAirways Grand Slam promotion a few years ago:

              The cheapest possible ride in the system is apparently one-way PHX -> aLoft Phoenix Airport. With promo code UYR59, the rate is $10.

              In the USAirways promo, it counted even for a no show, so lots of folks scheduled mid-day rides (so that no extra shuttle would be sent) and simply no-showed.

              Not sure I'm up for spending $10 for 1050 miles without knowing for sure it would credit but the idea is out there.

              Nope.

              Never downloaded the book. Not sure if that would have helped.
