1,000 bonus miles per new partner (Feb 2019)

This flavor of promo is back. I never find them terribly useful -- 1k pesos doesn't seem like a whole lot of incentive to try out the partners I don't already earn with -- but registration is free and takes seconds so why not...

I got this in email and didn't specifically check the DL site, so it may be and it is targeted: "This is a private offer and only available to those who receive this offer directly from Delta."

https://www.delta.com/mypromos/acela...NewPartner2019

PROMOTION DETAILS

For a limited time, select Members can earn up to 1,000 bonus miles with every new* partner. Eligible partners include:
  • Hotels
  • Airbnb
  • Car Rental
  • Lyft
  • SkyMiles Shopping US
  • SkyMiles Dining
Register between January 28th, 2019 and February 28th, 2019 for a chance to earn a maximum of 10,000 bonus miles per Member.

This offer cannot be combined with other offers. In case of overlap, the highest bonus shall apply.

*The term 'New' means a partner the member did not earn miles with since January 1, 2018.

It lists a lot of hotel brands, including many different ones in the Starriott family, but I was disappointed to learn that bookings must be done through hotels.com.

My read is either Delta's hotel portal OR direct booking.

My offer said it is targeted and only valid if you received the email. Also, only good if you earn said miles on new partners through 2/28/19. I might be able to get one or two bonuses in that small window as I’ve already earned with shopping, dining, and several hotels last year. Yeah, not very useful...

An offer I can actually sign up for (even though no email).
Too bad I won't use it.

go look at the shopping partners and click the link and search their site for something cheap? If Lowe’s or Home Depot or Kohl’s close to you, order something online and choose pickup in store for no shipping charges...

My T&C said if I used the service since 1/1/18, it wouldn’t count as new. So unfortunately because I already did use most of the partners last year my opportunity to get more miles is negated.

A cheap Groupon should work to trigger the 1,000 miles. At least here there's a fair amount of Groupons under $10.

Otherwise Kohl's seems to put on a sale for cheap pillows or what not for $3-$4 every now and then. Free in-store pick up would remove any issue of shipping.

EDIT: You should be able to buy 5 of these (to trigger a full $1 for a minimum purchase): https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt...-204645592-_-N

I didn't receive the email but it said I was registered when I entered my SM number. I've also used the shopping portal and Lyft in 2018 but I will try them both anyway. Low cost risk.

I didn't receive the email but tried registering, it says I was successful.

Since I am an overseas address, I'm surprised it showed some success. I will see if I can test it out.
