Under a new partnership between Delta and Lyft, you can now earn $1 mile per dollar on all your Lyft rides, plus (for a limited time) triple miles on airport rides.

This is almost identical to the Uber/SPG partnership (though, obviously, Skymiles are worth much less than SPG points).

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

If you don’t have a Lyft account, you can create one here.

*What’s the catch? Well, remember that nothing in life is free. And in 2017, your personal data is the most commonly sold item that makes you think you are getting things for free. In this case, you are giving Delta unfettered access to your Lyft ride data (when using the app and when you’re not). I don’t really care that much, but you might. So there’s the catch.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
