I got this email today from Delta, which I nearly ignored:

Hello Mr. Points Guy,
Starting today you can earn 3 miles for every dollar you spend on eligible FedEx® shipments through March 31, 2011. Plus, just for enrolling in the FedEx and Delta SkyMiles® program, you will earn 1,000 miles. It’s that simple to get even closer to Award Travel.

Sign up before March 31, 2011 to take advantage of this offer. You will also earn 500 miles for your first and fourth shipments after you enroll. After March 31, 2011, you will continue to earn 1 mile for every dollar you spend on eligible FedEx shipments.

Enroll here.

It took me about two minutes to sign up and though I had to enter a credit card, no purchase was necessary. Hell, I may even have to ship some things soon, so I might as well get points! Not a bad deal: 1/100 of a transatlantic business class ticket for 2 minutes of my time – I’ll take it.

FedEx has a portfolio of shipping services to meet your every need. Whether you are shipping near or far, to clients or family, in a hurry or not and no matter the budget, there is a service that is right for you. And now, earn miles when you choose FedEx.

Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

If you are a Delta flyer who is looking to bank some extra miles this card is a great addition for your wallet. While you'll earn 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases and 1 mile per dollar on everything else, you'll also have access to other perks like priority boarding, a first bag checked free and 20% off in-flight purchases.
