Simple, cheap 1000 Delta skymiles

From Frugaltravelguy:

1000 Skymiles
I saw this on today and I thought others might like it:
"1000 skymiles + 50 4X6 pictures --> $3.17 shipped. First post!

Shutterfly offers 1000 delta skymiles for those who register a shutterfly account and make a first purchase.

1 picture + 1000 skymiles = $1.90 shipped (PA taxes included)
- Go to:
- Register a NEW account with shutterfly (click "join" and fill out the form).
- On the next page, fill in your skymiles account number.
- add any 1 4X6 picture to your card
- checkout and select standard shipping
- Make sure that the following is selected: New user Sign-up offer - 50 free 4x6 Prints (valid for shipped orders only).

Can also be done for 50 pictures + 1000 skymiles = $3.17 shipped (PA taxes included). 50 free pictures are included with new shutterfly accounts.

Your skymiles will show up in your account within a couple weeks.

Free 1000 skymiles YMMV

Two months ago they had the same promotion but there was an option to have the pictures shipped to a target store (and to pay there). The disclaimer did state that the offer wasn't valid for orders shipped to target but (un)fortunately, I only noticed this after I placed a target order for 1 picture. I never picked it up (and didn't pay) but the 1000 miles showed up in my delta account a couple weeks later. Free!

I tried replicating it this time around, but couldn't find the option to ship to a target store. If anyone has better success, let me know. "
