Or, consider other cards for 50,000 more miles or points that transfer into United miles with additional flexibility for your everyday spending.
Reward nights start at 10,000 points. Free anniversary night (no points needed) good at any IHG hotel (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, more).
$1,000 toward travel or transfer to United, Southwest, and more.
While you can’t use airline miles or hotel points to pay for Airbnb stays, it’s possible to earn Delta SkyMiles for all your Airbnb stays.
And if you book by April 30th, you’ll earn 3x miles per $1 you spend on all stays, even if they happen as late as April 30, 2018. That’s up from the standard 1x mile per $1 you spend.
The catch is you can’t book your stay on Airbnb.com to earn the miles.
Instead, you need to go to DeltaAirbnb.com.
Once there you’ll be prompted to enter your SkyMiles number.
And then you’ll be directed to the main Airbnb.com site where you can access all the inventory you’re used to at the same prices.
You’ll earn 3 SkyMiles for every dollar you spend on Airbnb, and the miles will post to your account within 6-8 weeks.
And those miles are on top of those you’ll earn from any credit card you use to pay for the booking, including your Delta SkyMiles Amex.
If you’re a new host, you can also earn miles.
When you sign up as a new host the DeltaAirbnb.com site you’ll earn up to 25,000 miles through October 31, 2017:
There’s no additional earning beyond that, so this is a one time bonus for new Airbnb hosts.
But overall this is good news, especially being able to earn real miles for Airbnb stays as more and more travelers choose Airbnbs over hotels.
