Delta Dining- Chance to win a $500 Delta GC

Want a $500 Delta Gift Certificate?
Rewards Network's silver anniversary is your golden opportunity.

You're invited to a celebration. And how's this for a party favor—a chance to win a $500 Delta Gift Certificate!

Rewards NetworkSM, who brings you SkyMiles® Dining, is turning 25! That's a quarter century of making dining even more rewarding. And whether you've been a member the whole time or just signed up today, you're on the invite list. Any dining you do during the month of September as a SkyMiles Dining member enters you into the Dining with a Silver Lining Sweepstakes*.

So many ways to enter between September 1 and September 30, 2009:

If you dine—for any amount!—at a program restaurant, bar or club, that's an entry If it's your first visit to that spot as a SkyMiles Dining member, you get another entry Every time you spend $50—all at once or over many visits—you get another entry. (Example: If you spend $200 over the course of three visits, that's four entries!) Fill out a survey after any September dine, and you get yet another entry

Kind of lame if you ask me..will not influence my dines at all. Now if they had thresholds like $50 GC per $X spent or something like that, then I'd be all over it.

AA also and I agree. I maxed out AA so am nnow dining exclusivley via United. Rather have the sure bonus points from United than a chance for a lousy gift card.

I didn't take a lot of time to filter through all the small print, but it definitely says "100 prizes will be awarded"and then lists 13 different versions of the RN scheme- making it appear that the 100 prizes will be scattered around between all 13. That's like 7-8 prizes for each program, woo-hoo You have a better chance of getting killed by a Tsunami than winning one of those $500 prizes!

Maybe if one lived in Sumatra (Yes, I just had geology class tonight )

AS and RN is offering the same program...

I stopped by a new place in ANC and gained 2 entries (1 for a dine, and 1 for dining at a new place)

Hoping there are not as many AS RN'ers out there....

NJUPINTHEAIR, what do you mean you "maxed out AA?" Is there some kind of limit on the number of miles one can earn with RN?

Thanks for any info you may provide.

I misread your post as "other ANC diners", hence my initial reply. I have three entries towards AS $500 myself pending - base dine, never gotten AS credit there and I plan on rating it, too!

We've got a lot of competition as almost everyone with a pulse in Seattle has an (automatically RN-linked) AS visa it seems!

Oh yeah... I forgot about that automatic linking...

Still $500 would be cool
