After Uber partnered up with Starwood (SPG) to earn SPG points on purchase with Uber, Lyft has now found a major points partner for Lyft riders: Delta SkyMiles. You have a chance to earn up to 3 Delta SkyMiles per Dollar with Lyft!
Per the email campaign from Delta & Lyft:
Jetsetters, unite! As part of our partnership with Delta® SkyMiles®, you can now earn miles with every Lyft ride you take. Simply link your accounts and ride to your rewards.
Lyft riders who link their Lyft account to their Delta SkyMiles account will be eligible to earn one SkyMile per dollar (USD) on Lyft rides. For rides to the airport during the promotional period, riders will earn 3 Delta SkyMiles per dollar spent. The promotional period for airport rides ends August 31,2017. After that, all rides will earn 1 SkyMile per dollar spent.
While personally I am not the most frequent Delta flyer or SkyMiles spender, I am a frequent user of Lyft. I’m happy to collect points on a ride service I’m already using!
