Have a stash of Delta miles and want to plan a trip to Asia? Now’s the time to book your award tickets!
With this deal, you can fly round-trip to Asia starting at just 60,000 Delta miles!
For example, I found a coach ticket from Dallas to Beijing leaving November 20, 2017, and returning December 2, 2017, for 60,000 Delta miles and ~$41 in taxes and fees. That’s a good deal, considering these tickets usually cost ~$1,400+!
Here are the details of this sale!

Use Hotel Points to Stay in Asia 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, Ritz-Carlton, and Starwood hotels in Asia!
My favorite tool for finding hotels you can book 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.
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.
More Ways to Earn 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 Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN, to Delta at a ratio of 1:1. And transfers are instant!
Plus, there are plenty of credit cards that earn Delta miles. And through November 8, 2017, there are increased offers on both the personal and business AMEX Gold Delta SkyMiles cards. And the personal and business AMEX Platinum Delta SkyMiles cards! Depending on which card you apply for, you can earn up to 70,000 Delta miles after meeting minimum spending requirements!
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! You can read my full review of these limited-time offers here.
Delta is having a award sale to Asia! Round-trip coach tickets from the US to cities like Hong Kong, Seoul, and Tokyo start at 60,000 Delta miles. That’s 10,000 Delta miles less than they normally cost!
The sale ends October 10, 2017, and is good for travel between November 5, 2017, and March 10, 2018.
If you’re low on Delta miles, remember you can transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.
