There are lots of saver award seats available from Austin to New York!  I might have to take Emily there for a shopping trip! 😉

That’s a nice savings, especially if there are several people traveling!

Note:   Delta’s website has been very slow at times, possibly because of folks trying to book this sale!  So be patient if you have trouble searching for award seats.

Bottom Line

Delta is having an sale on coach class award tickets, but you have to book by November 2, 2014.  Travel must be between December 3, 2014, and February 18, 2015.  There are blackout dates around major holidays.

You’ll get a discount of 4,000 to 10,000 miles on a round-trip award ticket.  One-way tickets aren’t allowed.

You can book tickets within the US, or from the US to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and South America (with a few exceptions).

This could be a good deal for folks if you can find low-level award tickets.  But there are discounts on standard award tickets, too.

  1. “…not available to any eligible markets on the following dates: December 19 through December 24, 2014, December 26, 2014 through January 5, 2015, January 16, 2015, January 19, 2015, February 13, 2015 and February 16, 2015.” What good is this then anyway? Reminds me of the scene in The Jerk where the Steve Martin character is a carnival barker and tells the crowd what limited prize(s) they can win.
