With this sale, you can fly from the mainland US to Alaska and Hawaii for fewer Delta miles when you reserve your flights by tomorrow, September 14, 2017, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time!

This is great news for folks with Delta miles.  Or those of y’all with American Express Membership Rewards points, because AMEX Membership Rewards points transfer to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.

The sale is good for travel between January 8, 2018, and March 23, 2018.  And you can fly from mainland US to the following cities:

  • Anchorage
  • Fairbanks
  • Kauai
  • Kona
  • Oahu
  • Maui

Is It Worth It?

This is a great deal for travel to Alaska and Hawaii.  Delta doesn’t have an award chart, but flights to Alaska usually cost ~25,000 Delta miles, and flights to Hawaii normally cost ~45,000 Delta miles.  So this is a significant discount!

For example, I found a coach flight from Cincinnati to Anchorage leaving January 14, 2018, and returning January 19, 2018, for 20,000 Delta miles round-trip.

Note:   Depending on where you live, you can regularly reserve award flights to Alaska for less than this sale.  For example, a round-trip coach flight from Long Beach to Anchorage normally costs just 19,000 Delta miles.  So there’s no hurry to jump on this deal. 😉

AMEX Delta cardholders can check to see if they’ll do better using the Pay With Miles option if the cash price of the same ticket is cheap.  Check out this post for more about Pay With Miles.

You may have access to Delta miles without realizing it!  Here’s a 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 card or The 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 AMEX Gold Delta SkyMiles card, and the AMEX Gold Delta SkyMiles Business card.  Plus, when you have one of these cards, you’ll get priority boarding and a free checked bag!

Bottom Line

Until tomorrow, September 14, 2017, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, you can book discounted Delta award flights from the mainland US to Alaska and Hawaii.  

The sale is good for travel between January 8, 2018, and March 23, 2018.  And discounted round-trip coach flights will cost 20,000 Delta miles to Alaska, and 35,000 Delta miles to Hawaii.
