Delta Offers Double, Triple Miles for South America Flights

If your travel plans include flights to South America, Delta’s new bonus offer could make the trip a more rewarding one.

Offer Details

Through November 30, Delta SkyMiles members can earn double miles for coach (fare classes Y, B, M, H, Q, K, L, U, T) and triple miles for BusinessElite (fare classes J, C, D, S, I) flights to Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Santiago, Chile. The offer will also apply to Delta’s new flights between Detroit and Sao Paulo, set to launch on October 21.

The bonus miles do not count toward status, but may be earned an unlimited number of times.

Registration is required.

Deal or No Deal

If you’re headed to Argentina, Brazil, or Chile during the promotion period, it’s hard to argue with double or triple miles.

The only semi-competing offer I found is from American: 5,000 bonus miles for round-trip in business class or 2,500 bonus miles in coach on new flights between Miami and Brasilia and between New York and Rio de Janeiro, between November 18 and December 10.
