Good news if you’re looking for a deal to Mexican or Caribbean beach destinations and have some Delta SkyMiles burning a hole in your pocket. Delta is back with another flash sale on award flights.
And while there have been some great flight deals to Cancun recently, this promotion makes using miles competitive. According to current TPG valuations, 12,000 SkyMiles are worth just $144. If interested, make a quick decision as tickets must be purchased no later than July 11, 2018.
