Now through November 2, 2014, Delta is running a limited-time award travel sale which means discounted SkyMiles redemptions. Last month, Delta launched a similar sale which was only for Medallions and Delta credit cardholders including those with the Delta SkyMiles American Express Gold card, but it seems like this current offer is open to everyone meaning you can take advantage of discounts of up to 10,000 miles. This sale is good on  Delta economy round-trips during select dates between December 3, 2014 and February 18, 2015
