Ever heard that Delta SkyMiles are worthless? Purge that phrase from your memory.

We’ve unearthed a massive, unpublished Delta SkyMiles flash sale with flights to Europe through the fall and into spring 2022 for just 32,000 SkyMiles … roundtrip. Best of all, this is a nationwide sale: Whether you’re flying nonstop to Europe from a Delta hub or connecting from your small regional airport, you can score a huge deal. And you can get to most major cities in Europe, too.

Thrifty Traveler Premium members got this alert first, but there’s still some availability out there. Whether you want to head for Madrid (MAD), Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Rome (FCO), Venice (VCE), or even all the way to Athens (ATH) or Dubrovnik (DBV), this is your ticket to get there for half the normal cost.

The savings here are enormous: Delta and most airlines typically charge 30,000 miles (or much more) for a one-way flight in economy to Europe. Depending on where you’re heading, these fares should get hit with a reasonable $50 to $80 or so in taxes.

Much of Europe is already open to American travelers, though international travel is getting trickier as COVID-19 cases climb again. And that’s the beauty of booking with SkyMiles: These fares are fully refundable. Worried your plans or European travel restrictions may change? Decide you don’t want to risk it? You can easily cancel online to get your SkyMiles (and taxes and fees) right back.

As a bonus, these are all main cabin economy fares – not basic economy. So no need to worry about picking your seat or checking a bag; it’s all free with these tickets.

Curious what it’s like to fly to Europe? See for yourself!

You’ll find the best availability with this SkyMiles flash sale to Europe through October, though some routes can get you there all the way into March 2022. Some of the best flights have disappeared since we sent this to Thrifty Traveler Premium members earlier this week, but there are still deals to be had. Keep reading for a full list of which airports are seeing deals! 

But it’s not just the major hubs getting deals. Getting from smaller towns all the way to Athens for 34,000 SkyMiles roundtrip is absolutely unheard of.

And thanks to an ongoing promotion from Delta, you’ll even earn a boatload of Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) towards Delta elite status with these award fares booked using SkyMiles. For example, a flight from New York City (JFK) to Dubrovnik (DBV) later this year would cost you just 34,000 SkyMiles – and you’d earn almost 14,000 MQMs toward Delta status too!

Thrifty Tip #1: Make sure to use Delta’s “Price Calendar” feature when searching for award rates to find the best deals.

Thrifty Tip #2: Want to boost your SkyMiles balance for the next deal and get lounge access worldwide? Earn up to 150,000 points with American Express (transferable to Delta) after spending $6,000 in six months with the Platinum Card® from American Express.

These flash sales are among the best ways to use your SkyMiles. And while we occasionally see lower-priced , nothing rivals the scope of this sale. You can fly from virtually anywhere in the U.S. to almost any major European city for 34,000 or 44,000 SkyMiles. 

Even Delta’s nonstop flights from its core hubs are being deeply discounted. This flight from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Amsterdam (AMS) is typically at least 80,000 SkyMiles or more. But these ultra-low rates are available all the way through the fall!

How to Earn Delta SkyMiles

Unless you’ve already got SkyMiles burning a hole in your pocket, it’s probably too late to earn the miles you need to book this sale. But it’s never too late to earn more SkyMiles for the next great flash sale around the corner.

From the entry-level Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card to the top-tier Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card, Delta’s suite of co-branded Amex cards allows you to earn a ton of SkyMiles (terms apply).

Instead, look to the non-Delta Amex cards that earn Membership Rewards Points.You can easily transfer Amex points from the Platinum Card® from American Express or the American Express® Gold Card straight to your Delta SkyMiles account.

Bottom Line

Delta has been on a tear lately with some amazing SkyMiles flash sales, like 10,000 SkyMiles roundtrip to Hawaii or just 5,000 miles to get to Alaska and back. And this is a positively masssive flash sale to Europe, with dirt-cheap fares available nationwide.

These sales are one of the main reasons why we value SkyMiles more than most. They’re truly the best way to use your SkyMiles. And the fact that you can lock in a trip to Europe for as low as 32,000 SkyMiles, then cancel it and get your miles back for free if necessary? You cannot beat that.

  • I can’t seem to find out how to search flexible dates. I never see that box to check. I even searched by money not miles as well.

    • First, make sure you’re using the desktop site and not via mobile. As you’re selecting your dates from the homepage for your search, look for a small box labeled “Flexible Dates” — tick it and it should pull up some flexible options.

  • The fights from BOS-LHR are such a find at 20k miles but require long (7 hour???) layovers at JFK or DTW. How do you make that layover worth it?

    • Try other dates or scroll farther down past the initial options. There are tons of BOS-LHR fares with quick connections or nonstop. I checked one date (Nov 13th) and found tons of options.

  • I am looking to travel to Rome (FCO) from Columbus (CMH) in April or May. The cheapest that I am finding is 62,000 points. Is that a pretty standard amount for a smaller airport like Columbus?
