Three Best Ways To Earn Delta SkyMiles

Beyond Sitting On One Of Their Airplanes

Three best ways to earn Delta SkyMiles frequent flyer miles.

Addicted to Delta SkyMiles?

Personally, I’m not a big fan. I think they carry the worst value of any of the major airline loyalty programs.

Still, I recognize some folks need to catch up to that idea.

So, here are the three top ways to earn them beyond actually paying to take a trip on one of their planes.

1) Stay at Delta hotel partners Starwood, Marriott, IHG, and Hyatt and request front desk to credit your stay to SkyMiles.

2) Enroll in SkyMiles Dining: You were going out to eat anyway. You might as well earn a bowl full of miles. Open a free account. Register your credit card. Pick from 11,000 different establishments. Earn up to 5x miles for every dollar you spend, including tax and tip. You’ll earn 3,500 bonus SkyMiles after your third dine.

3) Enroll in SkyMiles Shopping and shop online. You can learn all about portal shopping here.

And credit cards? What credit card should you get? Again, honestly, I’m not a fan. All SkyMiles affiliated credit cards charge an annual fee. Also, bonuses are available only to those who have never applied for this particular card.  If you’re still not convinced and are jonesing for a SkyMiles card, this is probably the best.  Keep in mind, it has an annual membership fee of $195.
