Good news if you’re looking for a domestic deal and have some Delta SkyMiles burning a hole in your pocket. The airline is back with another flash sale on award flights to destinations like Austin (AUS), Boston (BOS), New York City (JFK) and Tampa (TPA).

Delta doesn’t have an award chart, so it’s hard to quantify the amount of the discounts with this sale. But, some of these deals start at just 10,000 SkyMiles round-trip. Based on current TPG valuations, that’s just $120 worth of miles with just $11 of taxes and fees. But, this sale isn’t going to be around for long — tickets must be purchased no later than July 25, 2018.

While the carrier only lists the above routes as being discounted, as is often the case with Delta, we’re finding that this award sale is much more extensive. So, hop onto and search around for the route of your choice to see how it’s pricing.

Routes: Flights to/from ATL/AUS/BOS/CVG/FLL/JFK/LAX/PWM/SAN/SFO/SLC/TPA and more
