Here’s a terrific opportunity to save miles on Delta award flights through July 2017.
Via The Real Deal, you can book Delta award flights within the US (including Hawaii!) and Canada starting at 5,000 Delta miles one-way in coach. Or 9,000 Delta miles in Premium Economy.
To get the discount, you must book by January 13, 2017. Travel dates are from January 24, 2017, to July 31, 2017, with blackout dates for certain routes.
I’ll show you how you can save!
Delta North America Award Sale
When you book by January 13, 2017, for travel between January 24, 2017, and July 31, 2017, you could save up to 7,500 Delta miles on a one-way ticket within North America.
You can check out sample destinations on the promotion page, but many more cities are included! So search for the flights you want to see if they’re on sale.
Normally, you’d pay 12,500 Delta miles one-way in coach for a saver award ticket within North America (22,500 miles to Hawaii).
With this sale, you’ll pay 5,000 to 10,000 Delta miles one-way in coach (20,000 miles to Hawaii).
And Premium Economy award tickets are discounted, too. You’ll pay 9,000 to 27,000 Delta miles one-way, depending on the destination.
Note: You must purchase your ticket at least 21 days prior to departure (but no later than January 13, 2017). And there are blackout dates on all routes between:
- February 16, 2017, to February 20, 2017, and
- April 13, 2017, to April 20, 2017
Want More Delta Miles?
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!
For example, 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 Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express. Plus, when you have one of these cards, you’ll get priority boarding and a free checked bag!
Use Hotel Points to Stay Free
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.
