Right now there is an unadvertised award sale for Delta business class from the U.S. to Japan for as little as 100,000 miles round-trip. The best deals are available to Osaka and Tokyo and there is no telling how long these prices will be around. So if you find a deal that works for you I wouldn’t hesitate to book it.

You also still have a chance to book Delta Vacations packages (through December 14th) and receive 20% more value from your miles, as well as up to 35,000 bonus miles (or $350 in savings). Also, the award sale to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Mexico and domestic cities is still going on.

Delta Days of Deals

Delta’s newest promotion is called Delta Days of Deals Holiday Edition — and it’s pretty sweet.

Normally, Delta miles are worth 1 cent each when you redeem them for Delta Vacations. But this week only, you’ll receive 20% more value for your miles. In other words, you can redeem 50,000 miles for $600 in value. On top of that, you can receive up to $350 off your vacation, or up to 35,000 bonus Delta miles, for your reservation.

There are several things you need to know before booking,

Get 20% more for your Delta miles via Delta Vacations

  • Purchase any Delta Vacations flight and hotel package, with your trip originating in the U.S.
  • You must reserve your travel between December 9 and 14, 2019. Travel can be any time
  • You must book at least a two-night hotel stay
  • You can redeem up to 999,999 miles for flight and hotel packages
  • You cannot use this deal for reservations you’ve already made
  • Offer isn’t valid with gift cards, ski packages, dive packages, or special status fares (such as companion, agency/industry discount, web fares, senior fares child rates). Also not eligible for groups of 10+

You’ll still have to pony up for taxes & fees. Also, if you book a Delta Vacations package with Delta miles and then cancel, you won’t get a miles refund. You’ll instead receive a Delta Vacations voucher (minus any cancellation penalties).

  • $3,000-$4,999: 15,000 Delta moles or $150 off

The information for the Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card and Amex EveryDay Credit Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Just remember, you won’t earn the welcome bonus in time for this particular award sale. Also, Amex only lets you earn an intro bonus once per lifetime per specific American Express credit card, so you’ll want to wait to apply until the rewards card offers are increased and right now none of the Delta credit cards have an amazing bonus offer.

But, these airline credit cards are useful if you want to earn Delta miles and perks on Delta flights (to help combat basic economy), like priority boarding, free checked bags and inflight purchase discounts, then consider one of these Amex Delta credit cards:

One nice feature of the Delta SkyMiles program is that Delta miles don’t expire, so once you’ve setup a Delta account you don’t need to worry about losing your miles.
