INSIDER SECRET: You can stretch your Delta SkyMiles even further by taking advantage of the weekly Delta SkyMiles deals, which in the past have included deals like round-trip flights to Europe for only 30,000 miles.
Earning a small number of Delta SkyMiles on every Lyft ride might not be life-changing, but it’s easy to set up and is automatic. The best part is that you can stack this deal and earn JetBlue points, Hilton points and other discounts on the same ride.
(Earning small numbers of miles here and there can add up over time, but if you want to stock up on Delta SkyMiles quickly you’ll want to apply for a Delta credit card. Now is a great time to do just that because six of the Amex Delta cards have limited-time increased bonus offers (ending July 2, 2019) as high as 80,000 Delta miles after meeting the card’s minimum-spending requirement. Check out this post for more details on the increased Delta credit card offers.)
Earn Delta SkyMiles (And Other Points) With Lyft
Earning Delta SkyMiles for every dollar spent with Lyft is easy. All you have to do is click this link and enter you name and Delta account number. From then on, you’ll earn one Delta SkyMile per dollar spent on Lyft rides. You’ll also earn two Delta SkyMiles per dollar spent on Lyft rides to the airport. This airport bonus is advertised as a limited-time offer but no end date is listed. You won’t earn any bonus on taxes, tolls or tips.
There are also specific bonus offers available from time to time from Lyft. Currently you can earn two additional Delta SkyMiles per dollar spent on Lyft rides to/from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
You can also earn bonus Hilton points and JetBlue points on the same Lyft ride.
Register at this link to start earning three Hilton points per dollar spent on most Lyft rides (you’ll earn two Hilton points for every dollar spent on Lyft shared rides). The bonus points only apply to rides within the US and Canada.
And you can find instructions on how to link your Lyft and JetBlue accounts here. Once you’ve linked your accounts, you’ll earn 30 JetBlue points on every Lyft ride to/from an airport.
The opportunities to earn bonus points all stack with these other rewards portals, apps and discounts:
- $10 monthly World Elite Mastercard Lyft credit (after taking five qualifying rides in a month)
- Drop — 10 Drop points per dollar when you link your card
- Ebates — 25 cents per ride, must click through the Ebates app first
- Freebird — 250-500 points per ride (5,000 points = $10). (You have to book your ride through the Freebird app s0 this doesn’t stack with Ebates.)
- Pei – 200 points for each ride when you link your card (worth $2)
Of course, on top of all of these discounts and bonuses you’ll still earn rewards from any travel credit card you pay with.
