Until May 10, 2017, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, Delta has award seats to destinations in the Caribbean and Florida (excluding Key West and Sarasota) from just 20,000 miles round-trip in coach!

You can fly from the mainland US, Alaska, and Canada, to tropical destinations like Miami, Antigua, Havana, Nassau, Grand Cayman, and more, for fewer miles!

This is great news for folks with Delta miles or American Express Membership Rewards points.  Because AMEX Membership Rewards points transfer to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.

You can travel from any city in the continental US that Delta serves.  The sale is for travel between September 26, 2017, and November 14, 2017.

Is It Worth It?

It sure is!  Especially if you were already planning a trip to the Caribbean or Florida.

For example, I found a coach flight from Seattle to Miami, leaving September 27, 2017, and returning October 4, 2017, for 20,000 Delta miles round-trip.

Take Advantage of This Sale and Fly Across the Country for Fewer Miles!

Normally, Delta’s lowest level round-trip coach tickets on this route cost 25,000 Delta miles.  So the savings on Florida-bound flights isn’t huge.  And you’ll still have to pay taxes and fees on these tickets.

But flights to the Caribbean are a better deal, because Delta usually charges 35,000 Delta miles for a round-trip award ticket from the US.

That said, AMEX Delta cardholders might do better using Delta’s Pay With Miles for coach ticket if the cash price of the same ticket is cheap.  Check out this post for more about Pay With Miles.
