Delta is getting in the holiday spirit by offering travelers the ultimate gift — the gift of travel.

While supplies last, SkyMiles members can buy Delta gift cards for $250+ and they will earn 2 miles per dollar spent — making it a rewarding gift for both the giver and receiver. There’s no limit to how many gift cards you can buy, so this is also a great way to treat yourself to as it will allow you to earn bonus miles for future travel.

You can maximize this promo even further by purchasing the gift cards with a Delta cobranded credit card to earn more Delta miles. Currently, there are limited-time increased offers on these Amex Delta cards until Oct. 30, 2019:
