You Can Now Earn Delta SkyMiles on Ticketmaster Purchases
If you're planning to make a Ticketmaster purchase in the near future, you might as well earn a few SkyMiles while you're at it. Delta has announced its latest non-airline partnership today, enabling SkyMiles members to earn 1 mile per dollar spent on tickets for concerts, games or theater events in the US and Canada purchased through Ticketmaster.
Choosing the Best Credit Card for Delta Flyers
Members simply visit DeltaTicketmaster.com, enter their SkyMiles number, and then search for and purchase their tickets. To celebrate the occasion, there's a 3x bonus through the summer. SkyMiles members can earn three miles per dollar spent from June 3, 2019 through Aug. 31, 2019.
In practice, the flow of ordering works much like the partnership with Airbnb. That means that you'll need to visit a special URL before making any Ticketmaster purchase. That's unfortunate, as many of the best tickets are available as soon as an on-sale date is triggered. Jumping through one additional hoop may cost you a great seat. It would be prefereable if you could permanently link your SkyMiles number to your Ticketmaster account, as is possible with Delta's Lyft partnership.
It's worth noting that SkyMiles members do not receive early access to ticket purchases via this partnership, though certain credit cards do open up such avenues.
