Interesting promo.

No advance notice and it's for only 3 days. How could anyone make a decision to purchase an extra flight in this time frame.

Thanks. Have to fly tomorrow afternoon (5/2) so I'll add it to the growing stockpile of semi-useless miles.

Members can register retroactively until May 10 - that's 7-9 days after flying. Highly unusual.

Miss 1000 miles by one day (travelling on Thursday)...could have used a few pity miles too, after emptying my account yesterday to book a SkySaver to Europe.

As usual I will be a day late and [500 miles] short - and on the wrong airline

"By registering, you agree to receive e-mails about this promotion"

I'm guessing that those who register will be sent a survey about their flight experience. Just a guess, though.

This is a stupid promo. Sounds like some sort of weird test to see how fast something can be distributed via the net.

Wondering if I'll get credit for the NW codeshares I'm on.....


edited to add:

I guess I should read the offer instead of wondering....

SkyMiles members can earn a one-time bonus of 500 miles for flying on any Delta, Delta Shuttle or Delta Connection carrier operated (and marketed under the DL code) flights between May 1, 2006 and May 3, 2006.
