How to earn Delta miles for Airbnb stays

by on Wed November 2, 2016 • No Comment


While you can’t use airline miles or hotel points to pay for Airbnb stays it’s now possible to earn Delta Skymiles for all your Airbnb stays.

The catch is you can’t book your stay on to earn the miles.

Instead, you need to go to

Once there you’ll be prompted to enter your SkyMiles number.


And then you’ll be directed to the main site where you can access all the inventory you’re used to at the same prices.


You’ll earn 1 Skymile 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 site you’ll earn up to 25,000 miles through October 31, 2017:

  • Earn 2,500 bonus miles when you reach your first $250* in qualifying Host Earnings
  • Earn an additional 7,500 bonus miles when you reach a cumulative $1,000* in qualifying Host Earnings
  • Earn an additional 15,000 bonus miles when you reach a cumulative $2,500* in qualifying Host Earnings

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 choiose Airbnbs over hotels.
