I’m not sure if we’re late to the party on this one but I just noticed existing points balances for Delta SkyBonus — the airline’s reward program for small and mid-size businesses — will not expire this year. That wasn’t the case in 2022.
Delta says on the SkyBonus member page:
As a courtesy to our members, SkyBonus points won’t be expiring in December 2023 as we prepare for the final cutover to SkyMiles for Business.
Ensure you have opted in to SkyMiles for Business and we will migrate your account to the new digital experience. We will convert any remaining points earned into miles following a 3 points to 1 mile conversion ratio. You will be informed via email when we are migrating your account.
(However, Delta SkyBonus credits with a 2022 expiration date that were extended into this year will expire on December 31, 2023.)
You may remember Delta announced it’s converting the SkyBonus program into SkyMiles for Business. Instead of SkyBonus points redeemable for a variety of awards, members will instead earn SkyMiles.
That change was supposed to take effect this past October. Alas, here were are in December and the switchover still hasn’t happened. Part of me thinks that’s because of the chaos surrounding the SkyMiles Medallion changes announced in September and October.
No doubt about it: Delta has significantly devalued SkyBonus during the past several years. But I’m still a member and enjoying earning something. I appreciate that the airline isn’t expiring points this year.
