Delta has an award ticket sale on select flights in the mainland US and Alaska for travel this summer and fall. Some routes are discounted nearly 50%!
I’ll share the details!
Pay Almost 50% Fewer Miles for Delta Award Flights
Tickets must be booked at least 21 days before departure.
Here’s a sample of the one-way coach award seats on sale:
- Phoenix to Seattle – 7,000 Delta miles
- Austin to Los Angeles – 9,000 Delta miles
- Los Angeles to Miami – 10,000 Delta miles
- New York (JFK) to New Orleans – 10,000 Delta miles
All of the sale routes aren’t listed, so it’s worth checking the price from your city if you have a destination in mind.
Remember, you’ll still have to pay taxes, but they’re very cheap (usually ~$6 each way). If you have plans to fly later this year, book your award seats now and save miles. In some cases, the prices are almost 50% less!
Need More Delta Miles?
You can transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio. Or consider the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express card.
You’ll earn 30,000 Delta miles after spending $1,000 on purchases within 1st 3 months of opening your account. And get a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new card in the 1st 3 months. The $95 annual fee is waived for the 1st year.
Here’s my review of the card.
