January 2018 Delta Flash Award Sale
Delta is advertising sale fares starting at 16,000 Delta miles round-trip in coach (though View From the Wing shows you can find fares even lower). That said, I had a difficult time finding these low prices on any routes.
The featured destinations are:
There are many more destinations on sale, but these are the highlighted routes from Delta.
A round-trip flight for 16,000 Delta miles to the Caribbean and Central America is a good deal. For example, Delta and United Airlines usually charge 35,000 miles round-trip to the Caribbean. And American Airlines charges 25,000 miles round-trip during off-peak travel dates.
Here’s what you need to know about this sale:
- You must reserve your flights by tomorrow, January 10, 2018, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time
- Travel is valid between April 8, 2018, and June 1, 2018
- You must purchase a round-trip flight to get this discount
- A Saturday night stay is required
- Blackout dates apply
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 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. 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!
Just remember, the AMEX sign-up bonus rules restrict you from earning a sign-up bonus on the SAME card more than once. So if you’ve had one of these cards before, you will NOT earn the sign-up bonus again.
Delta is having a flash award sale to the Caribbean and Central America! Round-trip coach tickets from the US start at 16,000 Delta miles.
The sale ends tomorrow, January 10, 2017, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time. And is good for travel between April 8, 2018, and June 1, 2018.
And remember, if you’re low on Delta miles, you can transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.
