Delta Airlines 500 Miles for Booking Online

Delta Air Lines is currently offering SkyMiles members 500 bonus miles just for purchasing a roundtrip flight at between April 28 and May 31, 2009. In addition, Northwest WorldPerks members also earn 500 bonus miles when they purchase a “qualifying flight” at Your WorldPerks and SkyMiles accounts will be merged soon anyway.

“’s share of tickets sold has grown by an unprecedented 50 percent since 2007. We’re bringing back the booking bonus for a limited time as a thank you to our customers for their loyalty,” said Josh Weiss, managing director of “We also invite customers who may book travel on other sites to visit and experience its many features and benefits, including Delta’s lowest available fares.”

What else can you get at Lots of stuff:

  • No direct ticketing charges or online booking fees
  • The Best Fare Guarantee, which ensures customers get the best Delta fares on the web or their money back
  • Online check-in for all flights, including international itineraries and baggage check
  • SkyMiles Award redemption, including multiple airline partners’ Award availability and easy management of SkyMiles frequent flyer accounts
  • Seating assignment changes. Seriously, don’t wait until you get to the airport. I hate changing seats because some parent comes on board with 2 kids and didn’t have the foresight to select seats ahead of time, causing everyone in the cabin to have to move to accommodate that person.
  • Up-to-the-minute flight status, including the ability to sign up for real-time flight updates
  • Live online chat with a Delta agent who can assist with an online booking
  • Purchase Delta Sky Club One-Day, 30-day and annual passes, hotel rooms, rental cars and carbon offsets
