Delta Air Lines just announced something that may help SkyBonus members breathe a little easier. Points set to expire in 2021 will be given an expiration date of December 31, 2022.
Plus, active accounts will not need to meet the program’s minimum requirements of:
- A minimum of five (5) separate travelers for the calendar year
- A minimum of $5,000 in accrued spending on qualifying flights during the calendar year
“Companies that signed up for SkyBonus in 2019, 2020, or 2021 will remain active until December 31, 2022,” Delta said.
- SkyBonus travel award certificates are now extended through December 31, 2022, for certs with expiration dates from June 2020 through calendar year 2021.
- 2021 SkyBonus Elite status is extended for an additional year through December 31, 2022, “to give customers more time to enjoy the Elite benefits that they earned.”
Delta said in an email to SkyBonus members:
Even as travel returns to normal, Delta recognizes the lasting effects that the pandemic has had on many companies and their ability to travel and do business. Considering this, Delta is again taking steps to offer greater flexibility to its SkyBonus accounts, just as it did in 2020.
This makes me even more convinced that Delta may again roll over everyone’s status and MQM into 2022 — or offer another concession.
This is definitely a #KeepClimbing move on Delta’s part. I had low-to-mid six figures worth of SkyBonus points expiring. Frankly, they’re a pain in the butt to redeem (though it can be done). But I appreciate Delta’s gesture.
