Domestic SkyMiles Flash Sale: Fly Delta for 11K+ SkyMiles RT!
Delta is back with another great SkyMiles flash sale, with domestic flights available as low as 11,000 SkyMiles round-trip.
Delta is advertising this sale from a handful of cities across the U.S. But as usual, there are far more routes on sale than the fares Delta is publicizing. And there are even better deals than even what Delta’s touting. Search some destinations from your home airport to see what’s available!
There are published fares like Seattle to San Francisco for 12,000 SkyMiles round-trip. But then there are some even better, unpublished deals like Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to San Francisco for 19,000 SkyMiles or SEA to Las Vegas (LAS) for just 11,000 SkyMiles.
Act fast, because your travel must be booked by Wednesday, March 20. While you only have a few days to book your trip, you’ve got plenty of time to plan. Flights are available at these sale prices from May 1 through June 27. But in many cases, you can find even better deals in late April and also out into July.
Head to Delta’s sale page and scope out the list of cities on sale. But remember that this sale is far larger than Delta is letting on, so do some hunting to see what deals you can find from your home airport.
Thrifty Tip#1: When booking with SkyMiles, make sure to select “Calendar View” and “5 weeks” to maximize the dates viewable.
Thrifty Tip #2: In many cases you can get these flights for a few thousand SkyMiles less by booking Delta’s new basic economy award fares. Just keep in mind you won’t get to select your seat.

These flash sales are one of the best ways to use your Delta SkyMiles. And this latest flash sale has some great deals to travel within the U.S.
And the deals go far beyond what Delta is advertising here. Check out how easy it is to get to Minneapolis (MSP) to San Francisco (SFO) for just 19,000 SkyMiles.
Or get from Seattle (SEA) to Las Vegas (LAS) for as low as 11,000 SkyMiles roundtrip.
If you’re willing to fly basic economy – giving up seat selection and some other perks – you can get these deals for even fewer SkyMiles. Delta has started to expand basic economy to more and more award flights nationwide. And while that’s generally bad news, it could save you some SkyMiles.
For example, that MSP-SFO deal can get as low as 13,000 SkyMiles round-trip if you book a basic economy fare.
Delta SkyMiles get a bad rap, but these sales are a big part of the reason why we think they can be insanely valuable. But hop on these sales quick, as these rates will expire by Wednesday, March 20.
