    Delta and Lyft partnership

    Link your SkyMiles and Lyft accounts and earn miles on every Lyft ride. Earn 1 mile per $1 spent on Lyft rides. Beginning February 1, 2018, Lyft users who have Linked Accounts can earn 2 miles per $1 spent on airport rides (see terms and conditions).
    If you’ve never signed up with Lyft, you’ll also get two $10 credits to use on your first two rides. We’ll automatically add these credits to your account once you link your SkyMiles account.
    Heads up: This partnership is only available in the US at this time.

    Earn Delta SkyMiles

    After your Lyft and Delta accounts are linked, you'll earn one mile for every dollar spent on standard Lyft, Shared, XL, Lux, or Lux Black rides.
    The Delta Miles you earn with Lyft won't expire. You won't be able to earn miles for rides you took before you linked your account.
    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.
