The Easiest 5,000 Delta Miles I’ve Ever Earned

Back in October, I posted about an upcoming promotion from Delta called Nonstop NYC.
In this promo 40 lucky winners won a trip from NYC to LA. The promotion went on for six weeks with various online games and a scavenger hunt around NYC called Find the Red Coat.

I wasn’t one of the lucky winners of¬†Nonstop NYC and I haven’t thought about the promo since it ended in mid December.

That was until today. I received an e-mail from Delta Airlines with the subject:

  • Delta Nonstop NYC- 5,000 Miles Just for Playing

I initially figured the e-mail was letting me know about another shot at winning some Skymiles but I was wrong. Delta was giving me 5,000 bonus miles just for participating in Nonstop NYC!

Sorry for the impossible to read image

Here is part of the e-mail:

Thank you for playing Delta Nonstop NYC.

Even though Delta Nonstop NYC is officially over, we want to thank you for finding our Red Coats, completing missions and spending time with us. We hope you had as much fun as we did, and we enjoyed seeing your posts, Tweets and check-ins from all over the city.

And as a special thank you, we’d like to reward you for your participation with a bonus of 5,000 miles, good toward one of our hundreds of destinations worldwide. Please visit and enter your award code ____ .

It’s a good thing that I read through this message or I could’ve missed out on 5,000 of the easiest miles that I’ve ever earned! (The miles didn’t post directly to my account, I had to claim them at the link above.)

Once I claimed my miles, I received an e-mail confirmation and the miles were added to my Delta account by the time I got home from work.

If you participated in Delta Nonstop NYC and didn’t receive an e-mail thanking you for playing, you should check your spam folder. Maybe you‘ll also have a nice surprise of 5,000 miles to claim too! ¬†
