Got the end-of-summer blues, dreading the inevitable cold weather coming our way? Delta has a cure.

Here’s your chance to book a cheap vacation to Mexico or the Caribbean with SkyMiles. With Delta’s lastest Skymiles flash sale, you can book it starting at just 14,000 SkyMiles round-trip!

Delta is advertising this sale from a handful of cities across the U.S. to Caribbean hotspots like Aruba (AUA), Turks and Caicos (PLS), San Juan (SJU), and more. But we’ve found far better deals than what Delta is publicizing, with more routes on sale. So be sure to search some destinations from your home airport to see what’s available! 


Delta SkyMiles Flash Sale


There are published fares like Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Aruba (AUA) for 51,000 SkyMiles, which is a decent deal but nothing outstanding. You can fly to the Bahamas (NAS) from Boston (BOS) for just 15,500 SkyMiles round trip – a pretty great rate by any measure.

But then there are some far better routes with even steeper sales that Delta isn’t advertising.

  • Boston (BOS) to Turks and Caicos (PLS) for just 14,000 SkyMiles round trip
  • New York City-JFK (JFK) to Aruba (AUA) for only 21,000 SkyMiles round trip
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Cancun (CUN) and back for 28,000 SkyMiles, non stop roundtrip.
  • Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Punta Cana (PUJ) for 14,000 SkyMiles round trip

Our Analysis

These flash sales are one of the best ways to use your Delta SkyMiles. And while there are some decent deals in the list Delta has publicized, there are some truly incredible trips you could take for as few as 14,000 SkyMiles round-trip. The best deals are never advertised, so start searching.

Flights to Aruba are typically very expensive. But you can get there from Boston (BOS) or New York City (JFK) and back for just 14,000 SkyMiles round trip!


Delta SkyMiles Flash Sale Mexico Caribbean


The one thing to keep in mind with these fares is that most come with some cash fees, typically between $85 and $100 round trip. Those fees are unavoidable with international travel to the Caribbean. Keep your cash costs lower by going to the U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico, where you also don’t need a passport!

Bottom Line

Delta SkyMiles get a bad rap, but these sales are a big part of the reason why we think they can be insanely valuable. Booking domestic flights for under 20,000 SkyMiles round trip can be difficult, so some of these deals to the best (and expensive) hotspots in the Caribbean are insane.

There’s no better way to use your SkyMiles.
