Delta July Birthday Promotion

Delta just announced their targeted promotion for frequent flyers with July birthdays – Register here, and travel between June 23 and August 31, 2011 and get 2,000 bonus Skymiles (not Medallion Qualifying Miles).

To be eligible for these promotions, you have to opt in for Skymiles promotions and have your birthday in your Skymiles profile. If it doesn’t allow you to register, don’t freak out – it is targeted and generally no amount of complaining will get you in on the fun. If you have a July birthday, try registering and if it doesn’t accept your Skymiles number, move on and don’t let it bother you (though I know it doesn’t feel good to be left out!).

Hat tip TPG reader Michelle!

“It’s time to start the celebration!

Our birthday gifts to you are waiting: You can get 2,000 bonus miles on your next round-trip flight and a $100 e-certificate toward a Delta Vacations® getaway.

First register, then book your round-trip ticket between June 23
and July 31, 2011
, and complete your travel by August 31, 2011, to receive
