I received a targeted email from Delta Airlines today that discussed bonus Skymiles for those who travel to London Heathrow in the next few months.
Those who register for the promotion at the above link and who travel to Heathrow between October 1 and January 31, 2013, will get a nice chunk of bonus Skymiles. The first round-trip will result in 15,000, the second 35,000, and the third 50,000. That's a total of 100,000 for the three trips, in addition to the actual miles flown, which will normally be at least 4,000 from the East Coast of the United States. Business class tickets get bonus miles on top of the miles flown.
Those who have the Delta Skymiles credit card will get 2 miles on top of the miles flow for each dollar spent on the flights. Each flight in addition to the first three will earn an additional 50,000. Business travelers going to London in the next four months could seriously cash in and perhaps qualify for an around-the-world ticket in the process.
