Earn Free Delta Miles with Every Lyft Ride!
Get ready to earn Delta SkyMiles every time you use Lyft! Delta just announced a new partnership with the ride-sharing app. Delta SkyMiles members will earn one mile per $1 spent on all Lyft rides, and there’s no cap on how many miles you can earn. For a limited time (we don’t know exactly how long), Delta members will earn 3 SkyMiles per $1 spent on rides to or from the airport. All types of Lyft rides are eligible, including Lyft Line, Classic, Plus, and Premier.
You can link your Lyft and Delta accounts here to start earning free miles! Don’t forget to maximize your ride-sharing payments by using a travel rewards credit card. The Chase Sapphire Reserve earn 3X Ultimate Rewards points per $1 on travel purchases, including Lyft and Uber.
This isn’t the first third-party partnership with a ride-sharing app. Recall that you can also earn Starwood SPG points for your spending on Uber rides. I don’t personally use Lyft or fly Delta, so I’ll be sticking to maximizing the Uber & Starwood partnership.
Finally, if you’re planning on staying at an Airbnb, remember that Delta, Virgin America, and Qantas all announced a partnership with the room sharing service back in November 2016. You can earn 1 Delta SkyMile per $1 spent on Airbnb stays worldwide.
