Washington residents have another reason to root for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks this year.
Delta is bringing back its popular 12Status program for a fifth year, rewarding Washington-based flyers after each Seahawks game. For every passing yard, 12Status members get 1 SkyMile. In 2020, Wilson and the Seahawks recorded more than 4,200 passing yards – that’s more than 4,200 free SkyMiles.
You have to be a Washington resident to sign up, and your address must match the address on file with your SkyMiles account. That means there’s no way for outsiders to cash in on this promotion. Flyers who registered in years past will have to sign up again for the 2021 season.
You can sign up on Delta’s dedicated 12Status page. And you’ll want to sign up now, as Delta won’t retroactively award SkyMiles for past games. That means you’ve already missed out on 254 SkyMiles from the Seahawks win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Six lucky winners and their guests will be chosen for a grand prize: Tickets to see the Seahawks play the Rams in Los Angeles on Dec. 19, plus roundtrip flights in first class and free passes to the Delta Sky Club. The airline is also organizing a watch party for members in November when the Seahawks.
Delta is loud and proud about being the “official airline” of the Seahawks, and this is the fifth year of the 12Status program. It’s all part of Delta’s turf war with Alaska Airlines in Seattle (SEA), which Alaska Airlines calls home … but Delta calls a hub.
The two airlines are regularly at each others’ throats with special promotions, fare wars between hub cities, and even launching new routes. When Delta started a bevy of new routes into Alaska this spring, Alaska Airlines responded by launching nonstop service between Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) and Anchorage (ANC) – a clear shot at one of Delta’s core hubs.
This is a fun promo for Washington residents and an easy way to earn Delta SkyMiles. Russell Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in the league. If his last few seasons are any indicator, you can count on earning at least 4,000 SkyMiles by signing up for the 12Status program.
