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).
