Link: Delta Flash Award Sale
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.

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. 😉

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.
