Some people earn miles using their credit cards, others do it by actually flying somewhere. Today, Delta has added Lyft to its rewards program so you can accumulate miles from a service you might use more regularly — at least, more regularly than air travel.
To earn frequent flyer miles, Lyft users can link their account to Delta’s SkyMiles program from a dedicated website. The system works a lot like a credit card program: you earn one mile for every dollar spent on Lyft. At launch, Lyft is offering three miles per dollar for rides to and from airports.
Lyft isn’t the first ride-sharing app to implement a frequent flyer partnership model; Uber has a similar program with Starwood Preferred Guest which lets users earn points to use when booking SPG hotels, which includes the Marriott, Sheraton, Ritz-Carlton, Westin, and more. Uber also partnered with United Airlines and American Airlines to prompt users to book an Uber when their flight lands.
