With SkyMiles losing more and more value each day with endless hidden devaluations year after year these Delta so called “sales” are one way to extract some real value out of your diminishing returns.
This month’s chosen destination is the Caribbean (and Florida). If you have never visited SXM you really should go – it’s a blast (literally). Oh and Grand Cayman, while expensive, is just stunning (hint pay with points for your hotel). Here are the details from Delta <-LINK:
Tropical escapes across the Caribbean and Florida start at just 20,000 miles* round trip (plus taxes and fees) when you book by 11:59 pm ET May 10, 2017, and travel from September 26 through November 14, 2017.
Sale Award Tickets will be priced starting at 20,000 miles round trip (plus taxes and fees) to select destinations from the contiguous 48 United States, Alaska, and Canada to Florida (excluding EYW,SRQ) and Caribbean beach destinations (BDA, ELH, HAV, FPO, GCM, MHH, NAS, ANU, BGI, BON, GND, SKB, SXM) (DL-operated).
Now clearly the downside of this sale is you are talking about the end of hurricane season. And, you are limited to mostly the month of October. And, availability may not be that great from your home town either. But if you are going to spend your hard earned Delta SkyMiles, you might as well get value where you can! – Rene
