Have a stash of Delta miles and want to plan a trip to Asia?  Now’s the time to book your award tickets!

Via Points With a CrewDelta is having a coach award sale from the US to Asia through October 10, 2017.  For travel between November 5, 2017, and March 10, 2018.

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+!

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 HiltonHyattRitz-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.

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 cardsAnd 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!

I’m seeing great airfare sales to Asia for only about $500 round-trip on Google Flights (that’s including all fees and taxes). I have tons of AmEx MR points, but it doesn’t seem to make sense to jump through all kinds of hoops to get MR points transferred to Delta miles and then redeeming them for award flights instead of just paying cash and then redeeming MR points elsewhere (gift cards? statement credit?). Am I missing something?
