Londonbound: 50,000 Delta miles for a roundtrip


I received an email from Delta today promoting a new opportunity for a whole bunch of miles. Ever been to London? Ever wanted to go? Fly roundtrip to London between April 6th and June 30th (2009) and Delta will give you 50,000 miles. That’s enough for two roundtrip domestic tickets.

Register now for 50,000 Delta bonus miles and enjoy your trip to the UK.
