Delta has very frequent award sales & promotions, so if you don’t want to miss out on the next one subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll deliver them (and other travel deals) straight to your inbox. 

Delta is in the middle of a “Days of Deals” holiday promotion.  The current sale applies to all sorts of cash and award flights to a bunch of desirable destinations like Europe, the Caribbean, and South Africa.  And there are deals on domestic flights, too.

The official end date for these deals is December 13, 2018, but Delta’s award sales often extend beyond the official end date.  So if you’re getting to this page a day or 2 late, it’s still worth heading over to Delta and searching to see if the discounts still apply.

If you’re concerned about not having enough Delta miles to grab the deal you want, remember, you can transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.  Or if you have an AMEX Delta card, you might be able to borrow the miles you need to book an award and earn them back later.  But if those options don’t work for you, here’s our guide on how to easily earn Delta miles so you can be ready for the next sale!

This Delta Sale Includes Deals We Don’t Often See, Like Flights to South Africa

Delta Christmas Sale

Book by:   December 13, 2018

Travel dates:   January 15 through March 7, 2019

Restrictions:   Blackout dates apply.  Friday or Saturday stay is supposed to be required, although might be able to find travel dates that don’t include a Friday or Saturday.

Unadvertised discounted routes:   On just about every Delta sale you can find discounts that aren’t advertised.  The strategy I use is to first find a city (destination or departure city) that is on the official sale page, then I’ll search for routes that include that airport.  But you can also find deals to cities that aren’t listed as well.

It’s easy to find award flight deals on Delta’s site.  On the main search page select “Miles,” and under “Calendar View” choose “5 Weeks” to see the most flight options.  If you’re not seeing the best deals on the dates you want you can change the length of your trip and you might be able to get some to pop up.  If you’re flexible with your travel dates, you should be able to book some sweet deals

I live in Chicago and was able to find unadvertised round-trip coach deals to these cities:

  • Amsterdam for 38,000 Delta miles
  • Bermuda for 16,000 Delta miles

  • Johannesburg for 72,000 Delta miles
  • Orlando for 14,000 Delta miles
  • Seattle for 10,000 Delta miles

Let me know if you find any unadvertised discounts from your home airport.

You can fly round-trip in coach on the following routes:

If you’re booking award flights the taxes & fees will vary widely by route.  You’ll pay the most flying to London ($180+ per ticket), but for domestic round-trip flights, you’ll only have to pay ~$11 per ticket.
