Happy Birthday Delta SkyMiles Promotion

Doh!!! If it wasn't for laziness & not wanting to lose my confirmed Z upgrades all the way thru for my travel in July (23-28), this would be a fantastic offer. I would net 24K MQM in one trip instead of 12K. So, who would cancel and re-book to take advantage of this???




Your birthday is approaching—and we can make your wishes come true even before you blow out the candles. As a valued SkyMiles® member, when you register and book a round-trip Delta flight now through June 30, 2008, you'll receive double miles or double Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs)—your choice. But you must travel by July 31, 2008 to receive your birthday gift—so register, book a flight and have a happy birthday!

Happy Birthday Wishes from Delta

Wow... This is new (to me).

Hello Mr. brown069,

Your birthday is approaching—and we can make your wishes come true even before you blow out the candles. As a valued SkyMiles® member, when you register and book a round-trip Delta flight now through June 30, 2008, you'll receive double miles or double Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs)—your choice. But you must travel by July 31, 2008 to receive your birthday gift—so register, book a flight and have a happy birthday!

This is a welcome touch. Southwest used to send birthday cards, it was always nice auto-recognition. My wife (FO) didn't receive this for her birthday last month.

Hmmm... My Birthday is in June (the 24th, actually), and I didn't get anything Of course, I did take good advantage of the earlier double MQM promotion, so I really didn't need this one, but still, the gesture would have been nice

I got this one too. I am a CO Silver Elite and have flown DL only three times in the past 12 months.

But my loyalty is too great for Continental, so I will pass on this one.

+1 would also love a link (another June Bday here) As, I "might" kill my skysaver tick that I'm using on my birthday -- and book revenue instead.

I received the e-mail today even though I haven't flown Delta in years. Here is the link, and I've pasted eligibility rules below:
