You can now earn Delta Skymiles for all of your Uber rides with no limits.

Every ride earns 1 mile per $1 spent. Just register here to link up your SkyMiles and Lyft accounts. There’s no need to login to the app or do it on your phone, though you will be sent a text message with a verification code. Once you do, you’ll see the image below confirming your registration.


While it’s a good step for Lyft, it’s still not as lucrative as the total earning potential with Uber rides with an American Express card.

If you ride Uber, Starwood Preferred Guest will let you earn 0.5 points per dollar you spend (actually, 1 point per $2) no matter what card you use, half the rate Delta offers, though Starwood points are a lot more useful. But while you’re staying at a Starwood hotel you’ll earn 3 points per dollar.

More useful, American Express Membership Rewards earning cards like the Amex Everyday earn 2x points per dollar you spend on an eligible card, and this can be stacked with the Starwood benefit, so you can earn 2.5x points per dollar you spend (2 Amex, and 0.5 SPG points). There’s no need to enroll for the Amex 2x points, just use your card to pay and the points will post.

    Worth noting that the disclosures say that Delta will have access to all of your ride information. Given that I find Delta nearly useless, that might be a high price to pay.
