I wrote earlier today about the new DeltaLyft partnership that rewards Lyft riders SkyMiles for each ride. Here’s how to link you Delta and Lyft profiles to earn bonus SkyMiles!

First Things First: Join Delta SkyMiles and Lyft

(If you already have Delta and Lyft accounts, skip down to “Link Your Delta SkyMiles and Lyft Profiles”)

Delta SkyMiles

Not a member of Delta’s frequent flyer program? Join SkyMiles. Membership is free and miles don’t expire (until you die, that is). Even if you don’t fly Delta much, you may as well earn something extra — on top of credit card bonuses and perks — for your Lyft rides. Plus, Delta offers some pretty decent sales (fares starting at 5,000 SkyMiles) now and then, so every little bit helps.


The new Delta – Lyft partnership gives new Lyft accounts up to $20 in credit.

If you’re feeling especially generous and wish to support this blog, you’ll receive $5 credit when you use our promo code, POINTSLOUNGE. (Thank you!)
