Earn Delta SkyMiles
After your Lyft and Delta accounts are linked, you'll earn one mile for every dollar spent on all available Lyft rideshare modes.
The Delta Miles you earn with Lyft won't expire. However, you won't be able to add miles retroactively (after you've taken them), even for rides taken right before you link accounts.
Lyft credits and gift cards don’t count towards SkyMiles. You can only earn points with one of Lyft’s travel partners at a time.
