Choose your own Delta Vacations bonus: Save up to $350 or earn 35,000 Miles
This story is part of a sponsorship paid for by Delta Vacations — one way that TPG continues to provide our readers with free news and advice about travel.
Delta Vacations travel packages have really caught our attention of late. It started over the summer, when Delta Vacations offered a promotion where you could redeem miles for a flat rate of two cents apiece, and we highlighted a number of the best deals you could score during that time.
In case you missed out back then — or are ready for more — Delta Vacations is back with a customizable deal for either up to $350 off, or up to 35,000 bonus miles with the purchase of any flight and hotel package over $1,500 that’s booked by Dec. 15, 2019. You don’t even have to travel immediately: You can book a trip as far out as 330 days in advance. Another unique aspect of Delta Vacations, including this offer, is if you choose to pay for all or a portion of your vacation package with miles, you can still earn award miles at the same time — a really cool benefit you can’t get when booking Delta award travel any other way.
To earn an instant discount, use code SMCHOICEA at check-out, or use SMCHOICEB and wait for your bonus miles to be deposited into your membership account between 6-8 weeks after your trip is over.
You’ll separately be eligible to earn up to 7,500 bonus miles per traveler when booking a trip through Delta Vacations.
Since you’ll also earn miles on flights operated by Delta and its partners, this promotion is a great way to top off your mileage earnings for 2019, perhaps catapulting yourself to qualifying for the next tier of elite status while getting in your final vacation of this decade. Alternatively, you could book this month for advance travel dates next summer.
