Delta Offer Registration Linky

Register and you’ll get a 25% bonus on hotel points converted to Delta miles through 12/31.  So 20,000 Starpoints normally converts into 25,000 Delta miles but with this promo you’ll get 31,250 miles.

It’s nothing like the offer we once had to turn 20,000 Starpoints into 62,500 miles, but it’s welcome nonetheless.

Delta miles can be notoriously hard to use, so just do this if you know you will want a Delta or Skyteam flight.  Although redemptions on V Australia can be worthwhile with decent availability.  A business class flight to Sydney on V Australia would run 150,000 Delta miles.

The 20 to 62,500 was awesome. Remember talking on way to BW? It was worth it to buy SPG at 3.0 to move into delta. Should’ve done way more than 1.5m

looks like it is 31250 not 33750.

25,000+25%=31250

@dan:
Yup, it was quite the promo!

@yosel:
Oops! I was calculating 35%. Thanks for the correction.

Yosel thanks for pointing that out. At that rate Id say its not worthwile, as even the 33,750 not a great deal.

Dan,

Its still not worthwhile unless you are flying delta and are able to be sure you can get a ticket. Most times delta is not available and you need to spend extra miles to get a ticket. The street value of starpoints is minimum 1.8 cents a point versus delta maybe 1.1 if you are lucky so 20k starpoints are worth minimum 360$ and 31k delta is worth about 340$ and the flexibility and potential of starpoints makes it smarter to just keep them in starwoods and not delta.

Anything for AMEX MR?

Does anyone know how to actually redeem this? I can’t seem to do it. Thanks.
