Better Homes Joins Delta SkyMiles

Buying or selling a home becomes more rewarding this week when Delta Air Lines and Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service team up to reward Delta SkyMiles members for buying or selling homes listed with a Better Homes and Gardens real estate member.

With the new partnership, SkyMiles are awarded based on the price of the home purchased or sold. For example, a home that sells for $100,000 would yield the frequent flyer 25,000 SkyMiles — enough for a round-trip ticket anywhere Delta flies in the continental United States (including Alaska) and Canada. At the top level of the program, home buyers and sellers can earn as many as 125,000 SkyMiles.

“Our program with the Better Homes and Gardens network offers excellent rewards to SkyMiles members,” said Christine Jilek, Delta’s director – relationship marketing. “This program is a logical addition to Delta’s extensive network of SkyMiles partners that reward members for purchasing various products and services from other fine companies.”

SkyMiles members participating in the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service program will receive the following number of SkyMiles based on the price of a home bought or sold:

Home purchase/sales price SkyMiles award
$ 50,000 – $ 99,999 12,500
$100,000 – $149,999 25,000
$150,000 – $199,999 37,500
$200,000 – $249,999 50,000
$250,000 – $299,999 62,500
$300,000 – $349,999 75,000
$350,000 – $399,999 87,500
$400,000 – $449,999 100,000
$450,000 – $499,999 112,500
$500,000 and greater 125,000
A SkyMiles member who buys and sells a home using the program may qualify for two mileage awards.
Interested SkyMiles members can find out if they qualify and preregister for the program by calling 1-800-988-5687 and consulting a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service relocation specialist.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service joins a growing list of Delta SkyMiles partners. SkyMiles members earn mileage by flying Delta, the Delta Connection carriers, Delta Express, the Delta Shuttle and Delta’s airline partners. Delta also offers SkyMiles in conjunction with many participating hotels, car rental companies, cruise lines, more than 2,000 restaurants, through investments with Charles Schwab & Co., Inc., through North American Mortgage Company’s HouseMiles program, by utilizing the SkyMiles Optima Credit Card from American Express and using MCI’s services.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Service, formed in 1978, is an international network of more than 800 firms with more than 1,550 offices and more than 23,500 licensed sales associates in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. This year, the Real Estate Service is celebrating its 20th anniversary in the business.

Delta carried more passengers worldwide last year than any other airline. Delta, Delta Express, the Delta Shuttle, the Delta connection carriers and Delta’s Worldwide Partners operate 5,230 flights each day to 355 cities in 62 countries.
