I usually ignore the Delta “sale” emails because they never really have anything interesting. However, this week I got the Valentine’s Day Flight Sale promotion, which surprisingly includes award flights. There are 11 city pairs that have 20,000 mile roundtrip awards (down from 25). Not a huge savings, but there are some good routes like ATL-SFO. Book by Feb 1 and travel between Feb 10-15.
|Atlanta, GA||Indianapolis, IN||$94||10,000 miles|
|Atlanta, GA||San Francisco, CA||$164||10,000 miles|
|Boston, MA||Raleigh/Durham, NC||$79||10,000 miles|
|Detroit-Wayne Cty, MI||San Antonio, TX||$114||10,000 miles|
|Detroit-Wayne Cty, MI||St. Louis||$69||10,000 miles|
|Memphis, TN||Phoenix, AZ||$169||10,000 miles|
|Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN||Pittsburgh, PA||$99||10,000 miles|
|New York-LaGuardia, NY||New Orleans, LA||$94||10,000 miles|
|Raleigh/Durham, NC||Tampa, FL||$99||10,000 miles|
|Salt Lake City, UT||Long Beach, CA||$84||10,000 miles|
|Washington-Reagan, DC||Tampa, FL||$84||10,000 miles|
You can pull up these reduced awards by simply using the Delta.com award search engine. I tried it for ATL-SFO Feb 10-13 and found something right away. When I pulled up the same flight through the revenue engine, it priced at $409.10. Using 20,000 miles for a $400 flight isn’t bad (especially for SkyPesos aka SkyMiles).
