    US Airways, Delta, and SPG teamed with Audience Rewards to let you earn miles when purchasing Broadway shows in select cities.

    US Airways-Audience Rewards Link
    Delta Airlines- Audience Rewards Link
    Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG)- Audience Rewards Link

    One might also be interested in collecting Best Buy Reward Zone points via Audience Rewards because of the ability to transfer points on points.com.
    Best Buy- Audience Rewards Link

    It looks like the only current cities participating in this program are:
    - Charlotte, NC
    - Durham, NC
    - Los Angeles, CA
    - New York, NY
    - San Diego, CA
    - San Jose, CA

    I've run some numbers to see if there are any "opportunities," and it only appears to be worth it if you were purchasing the tickets anyways.

    However, there is some trivia questions on their website allowing you to earn up to 12 free miles or points in the various programs. Click on Points Play to answer questions. It's not a lot of miles, but it can help extend your expiration date.

    The latest questions and answers can typically be found in this thread as well as on InACents.com.

    This was available a while back wasn't it? I believe many people did this for the US Airways Grand Slam promo last year.

    I recall checking the T&C at the time, and they said that points earned from trivia could not be transfered to US miles. It appears that the T&C have changed since then, and that now you get a double-dip (points plus miles) for correct trivia answers.

    For last year's GS, some people successfully bought show tix & earned a partner activity. Perhaps that's what you're recalling.

    I just clicked the link and It seems there are different trivia questions that popped up so the questions/answers on InACents are different. Thanks for the link though.

    Thanks Kaiser. It looks like the questions might get updated weekly, so it's worth a watch to keep certain accounts active.

    Also, you will need to have a separate email address associated with each account. I, for example, have accounts with each airline for each member of our family, so every single account needed a unique email address. If you have a gmail account, you can luckily move the period (.) around anywhere in the email and it's considered unique and you will still get the message.

    Is there any way for me to be able to revise the Title of this thread to include Delta? It allows me to update the OP, but not the title like on some other forums.

    I was trying to do the Delta one and the website asked for my PIN. I'm not familiar with the company. Are they reputable and is it safe to give the PIN?

    They also have SPG... https://www.audiencerewards.com/SPGonBroadway/trivia.cfm

    It seems like you can add more than one miles/points earning preference by going to Audiencerewards.com and clicking on edit details in the top right under your point total. I was able to add Delta, US and SPG but only 1 can be active. The miles for the trivia answers are still shown in the recent activity for each respective program so hopefully miles will post on all of them not just one.

    Now, I am right in thinking that you can only choose one way to earn points... either US, or Delta, or SPG?

    If you have multiple programs linked to your account, you can go into the account settings and choose which one to be active.

    That's why you might be better off creating a unique account for each program. While it is a lot to manage, I have separate accounts for each program, and each member of our family. The SPG program was the only one I somehow doubled up into one of our accounts, and it never prompted me to create a new one.

    My new researcher, Kelly Posey, intends to promptly provide me with the answers to all of the questions as soon as they are updated. I will post them on my website below on the Buying Stuff page in the Other Shopping Loyalty Programs > Performing Arts section. I will then post on my What's New page that I have done this. Simply subscribe to the service mentioned on that page that notifies you of any new post to that page (something all serious miles collectors should do anyway) to promptly have access to the answers.

    I will be putting this notice on many different forums. I am unable to take the time to post the answers on all of those forums. But please feel free to use, or even copy and paste, the information on my website here.

    Some people are unable to see the 20 point or miles questions. I could see the Starwood one (but can't now), but not the Delta one, for example.
    • If you see a question not answered on my website, please let me know. If you don't know the answer, I will forward the question to my researcher.
    • One of my readers noticed that there is a pattern to the URL's for each question. Perhaps futzing with those URL's would get us direct access to the 20 mile/point question. Or perhaps those who see it can post its URL here to see if that works.

    Thanks, Kaiser, for the answers to the SPG questions. Like some other folks here, I never saw a 20 point question. But I'll take every point I can get.

    I only have 1 Audience Rewards account but have entered info for Delta, US & SPG into my earning preferences. Only one can be listed as active but I think this just pertains to when you buy show tickets to earn mile / points. I have had miles and points post to Delta, US & SPG the same week for doing the trivia questions and they show as pending in recent activity. I dont think it is necessary to create a separate account for each earning preference.

    2 new Delta questions are also up...

    The book writer of Follies wrote the book for only on other musical. What was it? (20 miles)
    A Family Affair

    True or False? Memphis, The Musical has been filmed and shown in movie theatres. (2 miles)
    True

    Hmm, for some reason all 3 of our accounts today only had one question (the last one). It is interesting to see the difference experiences from person to person.
