With international travel not fully restored, airlines and hotels are finding other ways to partner with local services to offer bonus points and miles. One of these deals is the new partnership between Delta and Instacart, offering members SkyMiles on every dollar spent on Instacart purchases. Delta's elite members can also get a complimentary Instacart Express membership.

Last year, Hilton partnered with Instacart to offer members 10,000 bonus points for signing up for Instacart Express and 2,500 bonus points on their first order. Instacart now has a partnership with Delta. However, there is no bonus for signing up through Delta.

Instead, you can simply earn 1 SkyMile for every $1 spent on Instacart orders after linking your Delta account to Instacart. If you have an Instacart Express membership, you will earn 1.5 SkyMiles on every $1 spent. You don't earn any miles on taxes, tips, or fees, however.

Instacart currently offers shopping at over 700 retailers with more than 65,000 stores across 5,500 cities in North America, including wholesale stores like Costco and Sam's Club. Instacart is often better than other online shopping services, due to its low delivery fee: only $3.99 on orders over $35. The delivery fee is waved for Instacart Express members for orders over $35. Instacart Express members also receive reduced service fees and 5% back on eligible pickup orders.

  • Delta Silver and Gold Medallion Members can claim a complimentary 3-month Instacart Express membership.

At the end of the complimentary trial period, members will be automatically enrolled in the regular membership, unless they cancel. The Instacart Express annual membership is currently priced at $99 per year. There is a monthly membership for $9.99 per month.

Our Take

Not everyone uses Instacart or will want to take advantage of this promotion. However, if you're a Delta SkyMiles member and use Instacart or want to give it a try, this partnership is a great way to rack up some extra SkyMiles. If you're a Delta elite member, consider claiming your complimentary Instacart Express membership if you haven't already signed up.

If you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, this is a great card to use for your Instacart purchases. You'll earn 3X Ultimate Rewards from the purchase, in addition to the SkyMiles earned from linking your Delta account.
