If you’re headed to Australia this spring – for vacation or business, there’s a generous promotion from Delta and Virgin Australia.
You’ll earn an extra 5x points per dollar you spend on all Delta and Virgin Australia fights between the U.S. and Australia.
Coach fares are around $1,500 roundtrip right now, so that nets you an extra 7,500 miles on top of what you’d already earn.
Business Class is around $8,000 roundtrip, so you’ll score an extra 40,000 miles.
There’s no limit to the number of miles you can earn with the bonus, and if you’re on an expensive Business Class fare, these bonus miles don’t count toward the 75,000 mile per ticket maximum Delta will award. So you could net 115,000 miles on an $8,000 roundtrip as a Diamond Medallion (11x as a Diamond, up to 75,000 miles, plus 5x from the bonus).
You need to register before you fly, and finish your travel by May 31.
Delta and Virgin Australia fly from Los Angeles to Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne.
Only the portion of the flight between Los Angeles and Australia will count toward the bonus miles, so if you’re flying from somewhere else, they’ll prorate the price of your ticket based on the distance between Los Angeles and your origin city.
