All the stuffy financial advisors out there will say that buying Starbucks multiple times a week is bad for your wallet. But right now, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Delta Air Lines is offering SkyMiles enrollees 1,000 bonus miles to SkyMiles enrollees who also make two purchases at participating Starbucks stores in one week.

Once you register for the promotion, you will have one week to make two Starbucks purchases in order to claim your 1,000 bonus points. You can log in or create your SkyMiles account at After enrolling, you can make sure you qualify by heading to and entering your SkyMiles number.

You must enroll by September 12, 2023 in order to be eligible for the bonus miles. Qualifying purchases must be at least $2 before tip and taxes. The purchases must be “at a Participating Starbucks Store of food, beverage(s), and/or merchandise, excluding purchases of alcoholic beverages, Starbucks Card eGifts and physical Starbucks gift cards,” according to the terms and conditions.

The purchases must be made using a linked payment method or preloaded Starbucks Card registered to your Starbucks Rewards or by scanning your in-app barcode before you finish checking out. Starbucks stores are considered “participating” if they are locations where Starbucks Rewards members can earn Stars. That information can be found in the Starbucks app.

The 1,000 bonus miles will be added to your SkyMiles account within 10 business days from when you make the two qualifying purchases. We’ve even heard chatter (thanks Thrifty Traveler!) that there may be an additional bonus 1,000 miles offered to some individuals who earn the initial bonus. You can learn all about the promo at

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
