Delta Airlines, once an Alaska Airlines partner but now one of their biggest competitors in Seattle, brought back the 12status. A promotion for fans of the Seahawks.
The Seahawks are Seattle’s NFL team which Delta has a partnership. You get 1 mile for every passing yard in either home or away game. The first time I heard about this partnership was last year. I received just shy of 4000 extra Delta SkyMiles for last years season. However, there are a few drawbacks.
This promotion is open only to Washington State residents, who are at least 18 years old when the sign-up. Yes, I know, that’s a bummer but, Delta wants to win more frequent travelers from Seattle and “steal” them from Alaska Airlines. You don’t necessarily have to be a fan of the Seahawks or NFL in general, but you have to live in Washington State.
Remember: If you signed up for the promotion last year, you have to sign up again this year. It’s very quick and easy this year. Just enter the same email address and SkyMiles number you used last year. Everything you have to do now is to change your password.
Besides earning miles you get also Priority Boarding on all flights out of Sea-Tac. Priority Boarding for free is a great deal but it only lasts during the current season from Tuesday, September 4, 2018. until Sunday, February 3, 2019.
Perks for the 2018 Season
While writing this post, just a bit over 1,500 people have signed up for the 12status (2018 Season). I am sure this will increase over time, as you can sign up at any point during the current season. But you won’t get the miles for games played before your enrolment date. Don’t push it back and do it right now. It only takes a few minutes.
Last year Delta offered some extra perks: 12status members were able to win tickets for home games, gift cards for the Seahawks fan shop. According to the 12status website, Delta has awarded 144,300,000 miles to members to date.
By the way, Delta SkyMiles never expire. So this is great to keep your miles balance growing.
