Ever since it launched its SkyMiles Deals page, Delta has consistently offered some pretty great sales on award tickets. This time, it’s offering discounted domestic flights with pricing starting at just 10,000 miles round-trip. Departures are available to and from cities like Atlanta (ATL), Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York (LGA), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and more.

While Delta doesn’t have an award chart, most of these rates are much lower than normal — transcon flights are going for as little as 17,000 miles round-trip and one-ways are going for half that. If you’re short on miles, remember that you can instantly transfer American Express Membership Rewards points into your SkyMiles account at 1:1 ratio.

You’ll need to book flights by tomorrow, Aug. 15, to take advantage of the sale, with departures available from Sept. 15 through Nov. 15. While Delta’s only advertising select cities, it appears to be available from almost everywhere Delta flies.
