Check your email for one from Delta Skymiles Shopping titled “Member Exclusive! Make 1,500 Bonus Miles When You Shop Three Times”. If you have it like I did then you have been targeted for a special promotion for extra miles. This promotion is only open to those who received the email. The promotion gives you 500 Skymiles after you make a $50 purchase, then 1000 Skymiles when you make two more purchases totaling $50 more. All of the purchases have to be made by November 4, 2013. Here is how I am going to maximize it:
- Click through the Delta Skymiles Shopping page to Sears and buy one physical $50 Sears gift card using my Chase Ink Bold that I have registered with Plink (with K-Mart chosen as one of my wallet entries since Sears issues their gift cards from K-Mart). This will give me 50 UR points for the purchase plus 150 Skymiles for the 3 miles per dollar plus 500 Skymiles for the first bonus plus $3 in Plink points.
- One day later I will buy two physical $25 Sears gift cards in separate transactions, again with my Ink Bold. For each purchase this will give me 25 UR Miles,75 Skymiles, and $1.25 in Plink points. I will also get the 1000 bonus Delta Skymiles.
- Keep in mind that you can do this even if you only have a debit card and still get the 1800 Delta Skymiles and the Plink points.
This means I will receive a total of 1800 Delta Skymiles, 100 UR Points and $5.50 in Plink points for $100 in purchases. I will receive even more miles and points when I use the gift cards at Sears. What a deal! I love this game!
