Earn SkyMiles without Flying Delta

For every purchase made with select Delta partners, new Delta frequent flier members can earn 1,000 SkyMiles. Qualifying purchases are based around travel (e.g., hotels, car rentals, flights on Delta partner airlines), so if you're in the midst of planning a summer getaway and aren't a SkyMiles member already, it's worth looking into this. You'd earn miles for purchases you're making anyway, and award ticket redemption on some Delta flights starts at as little as 5,000 miles.
