Hot – 25,000 Delta miles for $500 in Sky Mall purchases by Sunday 9/18

by on Thu September 15, 2011 • 2 Comments

Ever flipped through the SkyMall catalog on a flight? Wondered who actually buys from it? Well it might be you if you’re in the market for Delta SkyMiles.

Our friends at FlyerTalk flagged that they are offering 25,000 miles when you make $500 in purchases (doesn’t include tax or shipping) by 11:59pm on Sunday, September 18th.

It’s valid using the link and doesn’t apply to gift card purchases (sorry).

Some people are suggesting buying a Canon EOS Rebel T3 for $599 — it usually sells for $549 at Target or WalMart. If you’re really enterprising, you can try and resell it on eBay or elsewhere for say $450 — and you’ve just netted 25,000 miles for $150, a very good deal.

25,000 miles is worth $250 in airline credit on Delta if you are a SkyMiles Gold, Platinum or Reserve credit card holder and use ‘pay with miles’ to pay for all or part of your ticket.

If you’re more patient with award availability and want greater value, 25,000 mile is enough for a round trip ticket anywhere in the U.S. and Canada, and if you are smart about it could be worth $500 or more for the right trip.

It’s an intriguing offer — definitely not for everyone, but if you value SkyMiles this may be time to do some early Christmas shopping at SkyMall. And you can do it from your computer at home, no need for a flight.

      @Cosmo- The bonus mile offer on Sky Mall is no longer active. But you are correct, it must be $500 or over — $499.99 wouldn’t have qualified.
