Delta gets a bad rap for not having an award chart, but this is one of the many benefits. This is one of several unadvertised flash sales we’ve uncovered in the last month alone.

This deal starts at 10,000 SkyMiles round-trip but only a handful of departure cities and destinations are available at that price point. Still, there are huge savings to be had into all of these Mexican destinations.

Many of these awards come with taxes and fees from $80-$100 but that’s standard for an international ticket. Even factoring in that extra cost, you’re still getting great value out of your SkyMiles by booking one of these deals.

Bottom Line

This is an incredible deal with some great options for a winter getaway to Mexico. Search from your home airport to these Mexican destinations for a great way to use your SkyMiles. I would suggest booking ASAP as there is no way to know how long this sale will last.
