[Deal Gone] 10-Year Thank-You Sale from 10k SkyMiles (Ends Tonight!)
It has been 10 years since Delta acquired Northwest Airlines. As a way to thank consumers for their continued loyalty post-merger, Delta has launched their 10-year Thank-You sale offering round-trip U.S. Award deals starting at just 10,000 miles roundtrip (plus taxes and fees).
The offer must be booked by tonight, Wednesday, October 31st for travel between November 28th and March 7th, 2019. This deal is only being advertised from select cities. However, additional cities are included in this deal and many of the destinations are available from legacy Northwest Airlines hub cities. Check your local airport!
Thrifty Tip: When booking with SkyMiles, make sure to select “Calendar View” and “5 weeks” to maximize the dates viewable.
Delta 10-Year Thank-You Sale Availability

This deal starts at 10,000 SkyMiles for roundtrip domestic award tickets. If you have travel needs between the cities included in this sale, you simply are not going to find cheaper rates when using miles with the other two legacy carriers (American & United).
As mentioned above, this deal is only being advertised from select cities. However, after a few quick searches, additional cities are included in this deal and many of the destinations are available from legacy Northwest Airlines hub cities. Check your local airport!
Delta continues to impress with their solid monthly flash sales. These sales are one of the main reasons we place a higher value on the SkyMiles program than most. With the lack of an award chart, Delta can effectively charge you as many SkyMiles as they please for an award ticket. What many fail to realize is that this can often work in your favor as is the case with this deal.
