Here is some bonus points love for some non-US residents!
I saw a tweet from @AwardWallet, and a post on Milepoint by KathlnJax, that Delta has launched a SkyMiles Shopping site for Canada, Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
To celebrate the launch of the new site, there is an offer that allows a person to earn 500 bonus Skymiles for the first two purchases – for a total of 1,000 miles. Presumably even a $1 purchase should count – assuming you can find that small of a purchase. This promo runs until 5/31/12.
If you are curious, here is the press release about the new shopping portal that launched earlier this month.
Here are the (sparse) terms and conditions of this offer:
Limited Time Offer: SkyMiles members earn 500 bonus miles per transaction on first two transactions made between February 29 and May 31, 2012. This bonus mile offer is limited to SkyMiles member purchases made through the SkyMiles Shopping website and to members who register on the site and provide their SkyMiles number at time of purchase.
As to whether or not US residents can also get in on this bonus points action – your guess is as good as mine, but I’d love to hear if it has worked for you!
