Last week, Delta Air Lines and Instacart announced a new partnership allowing Delta SkyMiles members to earn miles each time they shop for groceries on the online grocery delivery platform. That partnership is now live and you can now link your SkyMiles and Instacart accounts.
Once linked, Members will earn one SkyMile for every $1 spent with Instacart. If you have an Instacart Express membership, you'll earn 1.5 miles for every $1 spent.
Similar to how existing partnerships with both Lyft and Turo work, these miles will be in addition to any points and miles you'll earn from the credit card you use to complete your order with Instacart.
“We want our SkyMiles Members to feel valued and rewarded every single day,” said Josh Kaehler, Director of SkyMiles Partnerships at Delta. “As we welcome new members to the SkyMiles program at record levels, we know most shop for groceries more often than they fly. This new partnership is a way for us to give our most loyal customers even more value outside of their travel journey.”

What is Instacart?
Instacart has garnered lots of attention over the last few years as an alternative to traditional grocery shopping – especially as the pandemic brought grocery delivery to the forefront.
With Instacart, consumers shop for their groceries at a growing list of available stores, and a shopper heads to the store, shops, and then delivers the order to your front door. Instacart also offers an express membership for $9.99 a month or $99 a year that provides free delivery on orders over $35 and other savings benefits like 5% back on all Pickup orders, and lower platform fees.
As a part of this new partnership, Delta and Instacart will also offer extended complimentary trials of Instacart Express, Instacart’s premium membership, for SkyMiles Members. SkyMiles Members and Silver and Gold Medallion Members will have the option of a three-month complimentary Instacart Express trial; Platinum and Diamond Medallion Members can opt into a 12-month free trial.
In our experience, Instacart is a huge time saver, and this new partnership with Instacart will allow you to earn additional SkyMiles for shopping you are already doing.
