Flights to European cities such as Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels are currently available from 26,000 SkyMiles round-trip.

These SkyMiles deals are mostly available in March though you may be able to find some alternative dates with further searching. However, if you're looking to avoid the crowds and see more tourist hot spots, then March is the perfect time to go.

The great part about this deal is that it's in Delta's Main Cabin, which means you will be eligible for seat selections, flight changes and upgrades.
