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
This fare sale is for both saver tickets as well as standard award tickets on routes within the United States, to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, Northern South America and Southern South America. Below is a chart of the discounted awards being offered:
I was able to find Delta Saver awards at the discounted rate of 21,000 miles for these New York (JFK)- Los Angeles (LAX) flights.
If you wanted to head to Central America, you could opt to fly from Atlanta to San Jose, Costa Rica for only 31,000 miles roundtrip vs. the regular 35,000 miles normally needed.
As a reminder, if you need to top off your SkyMiles account, you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio. Be sure to book these discounted awards online at delta.com to avoid incurring a $25 fee for booking over the phone. You can also check out the SkyMiles Award Charts and Terms and Conditions of this offer.
What discounted Delta awards were you able to score? If you are a Delta flyer who is looking to bank some extra miles this card is a great addition for your wallet. While you'll earn 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases and 1 mile per dollar on everything else, you'll also have access to other perks like priority boarding, a first bag checked free and 20% off in-flight purchases.
