You can now earn Delta SkyMiles on Airbnb bookings

Sally McMullen 3 November 2016 NEWS

Following in the footsteps of Qantas, Delta SkyMiles frequent flyers can now pick up points on Airbnb bookings.

Under a new partnership between Airbnb and Delta Air Lines, Delta SkyMiles members can now earn frequent flyer points on stays through Airbnb. When you book your accommodation through, you’ll earn one point per dollar spent on Airbnb stays around the world.

To celebrate the new alliance, Skymiles members can also enjoy $25 off their first Airbnb stay as well as 1,000 bonus miles when they book within 60 days of signing up with Airbnb. New Airbnb hosts can also earn up to 25,000 bonus miles. You could earn 2,500 points when you receive $250 of hosting fees, 7,500 bonus miles when you clock up $750 and another 15,000 bonus points when you reach $1,500 in hosting fees.

This news comes just a month after the partnership between Airbnb and Qantas Frequent Flyer. Similar to the Delta alliance, you can also collect 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on bookings with Airbnb. While Australians are more likely to earn Qantas Points than Delta Skymiles, frequent flyers to the States could take comfort in knowing that there are extra ways to pick up points on their Airbnb stays thanks to the new alliance.

Airbnb offers accommodation in 2.5 million homes in 191 countries, ranging from basic bedsits and apartment stays through to opulent villas, so you’ll have plenty of choices when looking to pick up points on your next holiday.
