Want to earn some miles while doing some good? This promotion is for you.

United Way is partnering with Delta to offer bonus SkyMiles for those who donate to United Way during these first few weeks of September, as was first reported by The Gate.

By participating in this promotion, you can earn up to 5,000 SkyMiles all while making a charitable donation. Make your donation by Sept. 15, 2019 to get this SkyMiles bonus.


Promotion Details

First, make sure you have your SkyMiles frequent flyer account number handy: you’ll need to enter that on the donation form. If you don’t have a free SkyMiles account, sign up!

To earn SkyMiles, you must donate a minimum of $50 to United Way. You can earn a maximum of 5,000 SkyMiles, and can only earn this once per frequent flyer account. Here’s the breakdown of donation amounts to SkyMiles earned:

  • Donate $50 – $124, earn 1,000 SkyMiles
  • Donate $125 – $299, earn 2,500 SkyMiles
  • Donate $300 or more, earn 5,000 SkyMiles

All SkyMiles program rules apply to SkyMiles program membership, miles, offers, mile accrual, mileage redemption, and travel benefits. SkyMiles earned will post to your account within 4-6 weeks after the end of this promotion, Sept. 15.

United Way will put your donation towards “quality life improvements for real people in your community.” In fact, you can even choose to pledge your donation to a specific community based on your area code on the donation form.
