Editor's Note: We know COVID-19 is continuing to impact your travel plans. Should you travel now, be sure to familiarize yourself with the CDC’s latest guidance on domestic and international travel as well as local requirements, protocols, and restrictions for both your destination upon your arrival and your home city upon your return. Be safe out there.

I am a devoted early-morning traveler. You won't catch me boarding a flight past 11 am, but you also won't catch me boarding without a Venti Americano in hand while I do it. Now, you can earn on Delta SkyMiles for your pre-flight Starbucks and vice versa.

Starbucks and Delta Air Lines are linking their loyalty clubs so that members can unlock even more rewards on both. Beginning October 12, you'll earn 1 mile for every $1 spent on Starbucks, while also scoring double stars on days with a scheduled Delta flight.

"We're continuing to evolve Delta's SkyMiles program to give our customers valuable, premium experiences not just on the days they travel but in their everyday lives as well," Delta Air Lines Vice President of Loyalty Prashant Sharma said in a press release. "Through this new partnership with Starbucks, we can deliver more moments and interactions that matter, both in the air and on the ground."

Between Wednesday and December 31, 2022, you can also snag 500 miles and, after making a purchase at Starbucks, 150 stars just for tying your accounts.

"Starbucks Rewards and Delta SkyMiles are centered on creating moments of meaningful connection, and by bringing together two of the country's most celebrated loyalty programs we are able to reward our members with more of what they love," Starbucks Vice President of Loyalty Strategy and Marketing Ryan Butz added in the release. "We are excited to partner with Delta to offer our members even more valuable benefits, as well as invite more customers to join Starbucks Rewards."
