Have you been searching for a great use of your Delta miles?
Via Mommy Points, Delta is having a Business Class flash sale from the continental US to Europe until November 16, 2016 (tomorrow!). You can get a discount of 41,000 Delta miles round-trip when you book a Delta One (Business Class) seat!
For example, I found lots of available award seats from Houston to London for 99,000 miles and ~$269 in taxes and fees. That’s a great deal, considering these tickets usually cost $4,000 to $5,000!
I’ll give you the details of this flash sale!
Fly to Europe in Style for 99,000 Delta Miles
Good news for folks who took advantage of the recent increased sign-up bonuses of the AMEX Delta credit cards! Or for folks who have a lot of AMEX Membership Rewards points.
Delta is having a generous flash award sale to Europe. You’ll save 41,000 miles round-trip when you book a Business Class ticket. Here are the details:
- You must book by November 16, 2016 (tomorrow!)
- You must book a round-trip Delta One (Business Class) ticket
- The sale is good for travel between March 1, 2017, and June 30, 2017
Normally, round-trip Business Class tickets start at 140,000 Delta miles. So this is an excellent deal.
With this sale, you can fly to cities like:
- London (Heathrow)
Note: If you have multiple flight segments, part of your trip might not be in Business Class. That’s because some smaller airplanes only have a coach cabin.
So if you want to fly in Business Class the whole way, check which kind of airplane Delta is using for each itinerary, and choose the most luxurious!
Use Hotel Points to Stay in Europe for Cheap!
There are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit cards. And you can take a peek at my favorite Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and Starwood hotels in Europe!
My favorite tool for finding hotels that can be booked with points is Hotel Hustle. And if you don’t have hotel points, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
And don’t forget about Airbnb! It’s a fantastic way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays. Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.

You may have Delta miles available to you without realizing it! Take a look at my handy chart to help you figure out which points transfer to which airlines!
You can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points from cards like the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express or The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN, to Delta at a ratio of 1:1. And transfers are instant!
There are plenty of credit cards that earn Delta miles, like the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, and the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express. You won’t be able to earn the bonus miles in time for this sale, but you can at least prepare for the next sale!
