1,000 Free Delta SkyMiles for App Check-In

Earlier this week I wrote about new features on Delta’s iPhone app – overall it’s a pretty nifty way to manage your itineraries. Now they are offering 1,000 miles (registration required) as long as you check-in via a mobile app (I assume either iPhone or Android) from now until September 7, 2011.  This should also work for Skymiles awards since the T&C don’t state you need to pay for a flight.

This is a pretty easy way to earn 1,000 miles and even if you don’t have a smart phone, you should be able to get this bonus if you use a friend’s phone. Or you could just join the 21st century and get a smart phone :-)

Info on the iPhone/Android apps.
