This first one I HT my fellow BA blogger PM&M for alerting us to this one that is targeted but at the moment most seem to be able to register HERE with their Skymiles number. They may fix the bug, if it is one, so register sooner than later and PRINT proof that you are registered.
Notice the T&C are a bit confusing (color added mine):
Offer: Eligible members must first enroll in the promotion by July 10, 2014 in order to participate. Flights booked prior to enrollment will not be eligible for this promotion. Flights must be booked and completed within the promotional period, which is through July 10, 2014. Enrolled members will earn 2,000 miles and Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when they book and fly their first round-trip Delta or Delta Connection® marketed and operated flight. Members will then be eligible to earn double miles and MQMs on the first nonstop flight out of or into New York-LaGuardia (LGA) on any Delta or Delta Connection marketed and operated flights. Flights purchased with a published fare that earns full mileage accrual are eligible. Codeshare flights operated by carriers other than Delta are excluded from this offer. There is no limit to the bonus miles and MQMs that can be earned within the qualification period. Double bonus miles and MQMs will be awarded on base miles only and will not be awarded for mileage bonuses, including Medallion mileage bonus, or other class of service mileage or MQM bonuses.
So it seems to say, register, book & fly something other than an LGA round trip first. Then fly an LGA round trip and get 2x on your LGA non-stop flight? So after trip one, I will fly trip two to position to somewhere very far away and fly trip three direct to LGA and back and cash in. Then fly home. Is that the way you are seeing it also readers? (why make it so hard Delta?) Also it MUST be Delta metal not a partner.
The next one is targeted but you can very quickly Login and see if you are eligible HERE with just your FlexPerks number and the last 4 numbers of your FlexPerks either Personal card or as it was in my case my Business card to see if I was eligible.
Each FlexPerks point is worth MAX 2 cents each but what I have found is most tickets I grab tend to be $350-400 range so bank on 1.8-ish cents each. Here is how I am going to play this one. Notice it is not good for purchase UNTIL 1MAY so register NOW but don’t start shopping until after May 1st. Then I will go to my local grocery store to get 2x points. I will buy 3 x $500 Visa Debit Gift Cards to load to my BlueBird. Cost will be $17.85 for the 3 x $5.95 fee to buy the gift cards. I will gain, 3,036 FlexPoints for that purchase and 3,500 for the promo or 6,536 total worth MAX $130 less the fees is $110 in free travel money!
