A Delta SkyMiles number is an easy thing to forget. Because it has 10 digits, most people probably never memorized theirs to begin with. And those cards are easy to misplace. You can try logging into your online account to find out what the number is, but maybe you forgot your password. Plus, if you don't have a username, you'll need to enter your SkyMiles number to log in -- catch-22. Suddenly, Delta isn't ready when you are, but the airline does provide options to get you going again.

Retrieving You Number

The easiest way to retrieve your SkyMiles account number is to log into your account online through the Delta website (delta.com) or via the Fly Delta app. If you don't have a username or have forgotten your password/username, click the "Forgot Login/Password" link at the top of the home page. This will take you to the Login Help page.

Click on the "I forgot my SkyMiles Number or Username" link and enter the email address you used when you first signed up for your SkyMiles account. Your account info will be emailed to that address. If you have an older account that used a PIN number, you will also need to create a password to continue accessing your account. The link for doing this is found on the Login Help page.

Using a Different Email Now

If you no longer use the email account you used to sign up for the SkyMiles program, contact Delta airline's main customer service phone number. You will be directed to a SkyMiles Delta representative who will need to verify some of your personal info on file to give you the number. You will also need to provide a new email address for your frequent flyer account.

SkyMiles Perks

The Delta SkyMiles account has several perks including the partnership with American Express and Amex credit cards to link and earn points coordinating with a number of miles that can be used towards upgrades on your Delta flights or even free flights. The frequent flyer program rules as well as information about how to request mileage credit or speak to Delta customer service can be found online or on the mobile app.

Delta SkyMiles members typically pay an annual fee, but those utilizing the loyalty program for business travel may see great benefit despite the fee as they work towards medallion status.
