Delta pretty frequently publishes flash sales on award tickets. More often than not these are for domestic and/or economy tickets, but at the moment they have an excellent sale for travel to Europe in business class.
With this promotion you can fly roundtrip Delta One business class from the US to Europe for just 98,000 SkyMiles. As a point of comparison, ordinarily Delta typically charges a minimum of 80,000 miles one-way, so those are some significant savings.
Now, there are some restrictions to be aware of:
- You must book by 11:59PM ET on Thursday, November 14, 2019
- Valid for travel between December 24, 2019, and April 18, 2020
- Promotional pricing isn’t available on all dates, so see the promotion page for blackout dates
- Only some city pairs are permitted, though more city pairs than are shown on the promotion page, so I recommend just searching Delta’s website
- Roundtrip travel is required
- Seven day minimum stay required, and 30 day maximum stay allowed
- You must fly Delta metal (so you can’t fly partner airlines)
Ultimately you’re going to be best off just picking a city pair and using Delta’s award calendar to find available dates.
Delta SkyMiles is an Amex Membership Rewards transfer partner, so there are lots of credit cards that can easily earn you SkyMiles. See this post for the best credit cards for earning Delta miles.
Anyone taking advantage of this great Delta award sale?
