You know it’s good when you can fly across the pond for less than a short domestic flight.

That’s right, Delta is back with another one of its amazing (and unpublished) SkyMiles flash sales. We found flights to London-Heathrow (LHR) and back starting from just 14,000 SkyMiles round trip. Yes, you read that correctly: You can fly to London for 14,000 SkyMiles.

That is the lowest rate we’ve ever seen to anywhere in Europe. And amazingly, flights are cheapest from the West Coast: You can fly San Francisco (SFO) to London for 14,000 SkyMiles, or hop on a plane in Los Angeles (LAX), San Jose (SJC), or Oakland (OAK) and get to London for just 16,000 SkyMiles.

But nearly every airport nationwide is available at half-off rates of 30,000 SkyMiles round-trip – or much less. That means you could fly nonstop from Boston (BOS) or New York City (JFK) to London for 18,000 SkyMiles. Even flights from notoriously expensive Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) are available for 30,000 SkyMiles.

No matter how you slice it, this is an amazing deal. And it’s available from November all the way through March.

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

Thrifty Tip #2: Want to boost your SkyMiles balance for the next deal? Delta is currently offering bonuses of up to 75,000 SkyMiles on its co-branded American Express cards.

These flash sales are among the best ways to use your SkyMiles, and this is one of the best we’ve ever found. Pricing to London never gets this low – Delta and most airlines charge at least 60,000 miles for a round-trip flight to Europe in economy.

The one downside with these fares is London’s high taxes and fees – every award ticket will get hit with $170 to $180 in fees. But given these dirt-cheap rates, that could easily be worth it.

There are great deals scattered nationwide, so be sure to search from your home airport to see what kind of rates you can find. From the massive hubs like New York City(JFK) and Boston (BOS) starting at 18,000 SkyMiles round-trip to much smaller airports like Eugene (EUG) or Cleveland (CLE) for 30,000 SkyMiles each, there are a lot of deals available.

Our Analysis

Just when you think Delta’s SkyMiles flash sales, they bring out the big guns like this.

Getting to London and back for just 14,000 miles is unheard of. And while that ultra-low rate is only available from select cities, they’re on the West Coast – where flights to Europe typically cost much more. And considering you can get to London from almost every city in the U.S. from 30,000 SkyMiles (or less), this is an amazing sale.

In just the last few months, we’ve also found unadvertised flash sales to Iceland as low as 24,000 SkyMiles round trip, South America from just 12,000 SkyMiles, or a trip to the Caribbean Islands from 12,000 SkyMiles! If flying business class is your thing, check out the sale on flights to Europe in Delta One for just 80,000 SkyMiles.

While Delta’s hub penalty means many of the airline’s strongholds have higher rates, there are still great deals. Travelers in both Salt Lake City (SLC) and Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) can fly to London for just 30,000 SkyMiles round trip.

But then there are even cheaper rates, like 16,000 SkyMiles to fly all the way from Los Angeles (LAX) to London.

Bottom Line

These deals are real.

If London is on your list, don’t wait – this is one of the best sales we’ve ever seen to get there. And no matter where you live, you can cash in and get there for as low as 14,000 SkyMiles.

These sales are one of the main reasons why we value SkyMiles more than most. Delta can be difficult 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, like these dirt-cheap flights.
