Delta has launched another of its flash sales, with deals as low as 10,000 SkyMiles for tons of routes within the U.S. and Canada. While the published list contains quite a few destinations, it’s always a good idea to check your route separately, as Delta is known for leaving some of its best deals unadvertised.

To search, plug in your origin airport at Delta.com along with one of the sale destinations mentioned below. We recommend using Delta’s “Flexible Dates” calendar, and making sure to check “shop with miles” when looking at search results.

TPG values each SkyMile at 1.2 cents, so 10,000 miles represents a cash equivalent of $120. If you’re in need of SkyMiles, remember that you can instantly transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.
