Good news for folks planning an Airbnb stay!

Folks on Reddit report you can earn 3 Delta miles per $1 for Airbnb bookings made by April 30, 2017!  And if you’ve never stayed with Airbnb before, you can earn up to 2,000 bonus Delta miles.

I’ll tell you what you need to know about this deal.  And help you decide if it’s good enough to switch your plans to Airbnb!

Normally, you’ll earn 1 Delta mile per $1 when you book Airbnb stays through Delta’s Airbnb page.  But if you book by April 30, 2017, you’ll receive 3 Delta miles per $1!

Here are the details.  You must:

  • Go through Delta’s Airbnb site
  • Book by April 30, 2017
  • Complete your stay by April 30, 2018
  • Enter your Delta information

Plus, if you’re new to Airbnb, you can earn up to 2,000 bonus Delta miles for your first stay:

  • You must book by April 30, 2017
  • You must complete your stay by April 30, 2018
  • You must spend at least $150 on your first stay (before taxes and fees)

Who Should Take Advantage of This Deal?

Bonus miles are always good news!  So if you’re planning on staying at an Airbnb anyway, make sure to take advantage of this promotion!

However, there are also lots of hotel promotions right now, like:

Depending on your travel goals, these hotel promotions might be a better deal for you.  IHG’s Accelerate promotion is a particularly good deal.  I recommend taking part in that before this Delta Airbnb promotion if it fits your travel plans.

What Are Delta Miles Worth?

1.   Award Flights

Delta doesn’t have an award chart, so you’ll have to use the Delta website to price your ticket.  Some examples of what you can get with Delta miles are:

  • Round-trip from St. Paul to Maui in coach – 45,000 Delta miles
  • Round-trip from Chicago to Dubai in coach – 70,000 Delta miles
  • Round-trip from Cincinnati to Paris in Business Class140,000 Delta miles
  • Round-trip from Los Angeles to Sydney in coach – 90,000 Delta miles

Fly to Australia for 45,000 Delta Miles One-Way

You can also check out Delta’s Destination tool.  And, if you need to connect, you can add a connecting flight to get to another airport for no additional miles.

2.   Pay With Miles

You can also use Pay With Miles to redeem your Delta miles for paid Delta flights WITHOUT searching for award seats.  But only Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express cardholders have this ability.

You’ll get a rate of 1 cent per mile towards paid tickets, and you must redeem in 5,000 mile ($50) increments.  One cent isn’t a great value.  But it’s a good option when your travel dates aren’t flexible!

Bottom Line

You can earn 3X Delta miles when you book an Airbnb reservation by April 30, 2017, and complete your stay by April 30, 2018.  And folks new to Airbnb can get up to 2,000 bonus Delta miles for their first stay!

I never pass up bonus miles, and 3X Delta miles is a decent promotion.  But I would NOT switch my plans to Airbnb instead of taking part in another valuable hotel promotion, like IHG Accelerate.

  1. I just paid for my airbnb in Stockholm which should net me 10,000 Delta Skymiles (as well as 10,000 Citi ThankYou points for using my Citi ThankYou Premier)

    Are these Delta Skymiles credited right away?
