skybonus sweepstakes from Delta

I like this one. Not only is this what has become the stock monthly Skybonus promo, that is 5,000 points for new members, but for all of us who are already members a chance to win ETVs and 200,000 bonus points. That is neat!

Here are the details:

“Enroll by Sept. 30 with promotion code SWEEPS14 for your chance to win. Your company will also earn an extra 5,000 points with first flight.”


“Thank you for participating in SkyBonus! Make sure you share this sweepstakes with all your travelers!** Each employee that enters with your company’s SkyBonus ID counts as another entry for your company.”

Even with the recent changes (both devaluations and some improvements) Skybonus is a free extra bonus program you should be looking at if your business spends at least $5,000 a year flying Delta. And again not just you, but you can get credit for all your employees. – René

  1. Completely unrelated question – How do vouchers from bumping impact skymiles accrual? I’m thinking I still get full skymiles when I use vouchers, but I can’t recall if this is really true or not.

  2. Entry page asks:

    “Are you a travel agent entering on behalf of a company you work with? ”

    I’m assuming to say no here, but thought to mention it.

  3. Rene, my next Delta flight purchase will most likely be November. If it were you, would you sign up for Skybonus now or wait for better sign up offer?

  4. I’m a Platinum member, and a sole proprietor. No EIN. My wife works for me. I’m not yet a Skybonus member, but have already paid for a flight dep Nov 3, ret Nov 20. We both had a long haul transpacific flight Feb 2014. If I join today, will I get credit for my November flight? Their website says something about backdating credit for prior flights, as well. What would you suggest?
