Hold Off on that Crazy 150% Delta Bonus Promotion

Ugh…Sometimes when things seem too good to be true:

That Delta promo I mentioned last week where you earned a 150% bonus for partner activity is now showing up as not available.  (Flyertalk has a thread here).  The long and short is that depending on whom you speak to at Delta, either there is a technical glitch that is being worked on (I hope) or that they’ve decided Starwood transfers are not eligible, despite what it said in the Terms & Conditions (I hope not).  I’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

(Thanks – I guess – to View from the Wing)


  1. After I read your post, I transferred 22K of my SPG points to Delta. As a result, I got additional 5K of ‘AIRLINE TRANSFER BONUS’ from SPG, so Delta account has already received 27K miles. No other bonus points have been seen so far :(
