Delta Lyft Partnership

Earnings Rates

  • You will earn 1 mile per Dollar spent on all rides; the figure excludes spend on tolls and taxes
  • Through January 15, 2018, you will earn a 2 miles’ bonus on all rides to airport locations, giving you 3 miles per Dollar spent to airport locations
  • As a signup bonus, you will receive a $20 credit, split into two individual $10 Lyft ride credits
  • Earning is on all Lyft rides, including Lyft Line, Plus, Premier, and Classic
  • To take advantage of the offer, you need to link your Delta and Lyft accounts

What is great about this partnership, is that you earn miles for every ride you take regardless of destinations, unlike the current partnership between Lyft and JetBlue, which only lets you earn miles on trips you take to the airport.

Our Take

Any new partnership that lets you earn more miles for spend you would ordinarily make is great news. It is great that Lyft is teaming up with another airline to let you earn while your ride. Hopefully, in the long run, the partnership does not suffer a devaluation, similar to what happened with the SPG and Uber partnership.
