How to find out my sisters skymiles number?

The last couple of days I have been calling Delta to transfer all my remaining Delta Skymiles to Hilton Hhonors but I do have one problem.

I cant find my sister number and even though I know her address in the profile, pin code, contact number and her first and only DL flight delta in Sweden refuse to give me her number.

They did gave me her number a few weeks but I have lost the note since

What can I do? Call back until they give it to me? I need to transfer those points before the 28th of Feb which is the last date for the transfer.

Let's see.

Find an old statement?
Find a boarding pass?
If you ever logged into the Delta site and your browser "remembers" what you typed, can you find it there?
Did you book the flight through a travel agent who might have the number?
Have your sister call and ask?
Book a fully refundable ticket, and THEN call back and ask Delta to find the number to apply to the ticket.

Good luck.

Kempis, I don't think they're likely to give you the number. My father has the same name as I do (but he's not a Medallion). I've sprung a few "surprise" upgrades on him in the past, but DL has always demanded that I give them his SkyMiles number -- they wouldn't tell me what it was. In fact, they wouldn't even tell me which flights he was on, so I had to have that info, too.

Fortunately, I'm on good terms with the admin ladies in his department, and they'll give me the information.

If I were in your position, I'd just call Sister up and get the info from her.

Thanx for the advices so far. I doubt that my sisters knows here account number so I will probably book a Y ticket and call Delta and ask them to put the number in the booking and then just cancel the reservation.

What I've done always worked for me. I call up DL and tell them that I am about to book a flight for me and my family online. However, I don't have the frequent flyer numbers for them. (Sound clueless.) Then they always give them to me.

What if you (or a female friend) just called Delta and claimed to be your sister? Wouldn't they give HER her own SkyMiles number? Try it with your own number and see what happens.

You should know everything about your sister that Delta knows (address, date of birth, etc.), so you should be able to impersonate her easily enough. Seems harmless -- you aren't trying to defraud anybody.

Bruce's method has worked for me as well when I was trying to get numbers for family members.

Kempis, perhaps I am missing something here, but why can't your sister call for herself?

I dont even think my sister knows she is a Delta Skymiles member I did sign up her prior to her ARN-JFK-LAX flight a few years ago.

Very interesting everyone complains when Delta enforces their rules but this board goes out of it's way to tell people how to circumvent the FF system and rules.

Maybe I'm missing something. What "rule" is anybody trying to circumvent? Somebody wants to know his sister's SkyMiles number -- for a valid reason, not to commit fraud against her or against Delta. That doesn't seem like a matter for Delta to worry about very much.

I would really take issue with the request from kempis if it entailed attempting to obtain his sister's password to her SkyMiles account.

If anybody wanted to know my SkyMiles number, all that person would have to do is look on my SkyMiles luggage tag on my luggage in the overhead compartment on the airplane. What is the difference?

For the most part, in my years on FlyerTalk (including before registering, of course), anybody who attempts to blatantly get out-of-line will be chastised accordingly by the other members of the community.

...then again, I just found this thread in the Hilton forum by the same author who started this thread.

Now I am starting to wonder...

Again I will ask what I thought was a simple enough question, why can't your sister call for herself?

Edited for spelling error. Forgot to use the spell-check tool that I recommended to everyone.
