Delta launched a partnership with Airbnb in November, becoming the third airline to do so after Virgin America and Qantas.
They started out just offering 1 mile per dollar spent with Airbnb:
Now they’ve tripled that for a limited time and introduced a 2000 mile first-stay bonus. Bookings made by April 30 and complete by April 30, 2018 qualify.
If you rent out a place you can earn up to 25,000 bonus miles based on earnings through October 31:
- 2,500 bonus miles when you reach your first $250 in qualifying Host Earnings
- 7,500 bonus miles when you reach a cumulative $1,000 in qualifying Host Earnings
- 15,000 bonus miles when you reach a cumulative $2,500 in qualifying Host Earnings
Maxing out this bonus if, say, you rented your place to a spouse would net you 25,000 miles at a cost of about a third of a cent per mile. Even though Delta only wants their miles to be worth a penny apiece that’s a deal worth taking.
