Delta has launched a SkyMiles flash to China, with flights starting at just 30,000 SkyMiles round-trip in economy. That’s less than many domestic flights, and the norm is between 70,000 and 120,000 SkyMiles.

Delta itself is advertising these fares but, as usual, we found it’s far larger than advertised. These great rates are available nationwide from almost every airport with Delta service! Read up on Delta’s SkyMiles Flash sales.

Despite saying the deal would expire at midnight on Thursday, Dec. 6 (and pulling the advertised sale from its website), this one’s still available! We’re still seeing plenty of availability starting at 30,000 SkyMiles from dozens of airports across the country. Flights are available from March through May. 

Want some extra space to stretch out? You can fly to China, Seoul or Tokyo in Premium Select, Delta’s spacious new premium economy offering, for as low as just 70,000 SkyMiles round trip. These are $2,500+ flights that normally go for 160,000 SkyMiles or more. Just search the same departure cities to find those deals.

Thrifty Tip #1: When booking, make sure to select “Calendar View” and “5 weeks” to maximize the dates viewable.

Thrifty Tip #2: Not interested in visiting the big metropolitan cities of Shanghai or Beijing? Head onward to three of our favorite cities in China! Or go check out the Great Wall! And some incredible National Parks, too.

Our Analysis

Flying to China for 30,000 SkyMiles round trip is an incredible deal. That’s cheaper than many domestic flights and less than you’d normally pay for a one-way ticket with Delta. It’s one of the best SkyMiles flash sales we’ve seen all year.

In the past, many of these deals only offer those barnburner prices to just a handful of airports, but that’s not the case here. The 30,000 SkyMile price is widely available, and you can get to China from almost anywhere in the nation for between 30,000 and 42,000 SkyMiles.

With just $35 to $50 or so in fees on each ticket, this deal can’t be ignored. Just remember to book before 11:59 p.m. EST today to get these prices. Don’t wait!

Bottom Line

Delta continues to outdo itself with these flash sales.

These sales are one of the main reasons why we value SkyMiles more than most. Delta can be tough to grasp because it doesn’t have an award chart, and that means they often charge an arm and a leg for an award flight. But that freedom also comes with tremendous upside – other airlines just can’t get you to China and back for 30,000 miles.
