With an extended family that is spread out all over the country, we end up shipping a fair amount of things including outgrown clothes, toys, birthday presents, etc. So when I saw an email that mentioned earning bonus miles for shipments, it caught my attention. After all, earning rewards for things that you are going to have to do anyway is one of the main ways that I earn my miles and points.
Until the end of September you can earn 3 Delta Skymiles per dollar for FedEx Express®, FedEx Ground®, or FedEx Home Delivery® shipments. That’s all well and good, but it is the bonus miles that caught my attention. Until the end of September, every 5th shipment will earn you 1,000 bonus miles. Plus, if you are new to the FedEx/Skymiles program, then you get 500 bonus miles for your 1st and 4th shipments as well. If you are a new customer, earning 2,000 bonus miles for making five shipments between now and the end of September isn’t too bad – assuming you were going to be using FedEx anyway. Of course, if you happen to have a business that utilizes FedEx frequently, this promotion could be even more lucrative.
