It’s time for another Delta award sale! The airline is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its merger with Northwest Airlines by offering US flight deals from 10,000 SkyMiles round-trip. At current TPG valuations 10,000 SkyMiles are worth approximately $120, so this could be a fantastic way to get home over the holidays if you manage to snag an award flight over peak travel times.

Flights are available on select domestic routes which you can see here, although like other Delta award sales, it’s likely you’ll find other city pairs included too.

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.
