Ends Tonight! Domestic SkyMiles Flash Sale: Head South on Delta from 11K RT
It’s time to head south, partner.
Delta is back with another SkyMiles flash sale on domestic flights, with flights to great spots in the South available for 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 with even better deals than what Delta’s touting. So be sure to search some destinations from your home airport to see what’s available!
But you have to book by 11:59 p.m. tonight, Thursday, May 16 – that’s when Delta says these dirt-cheap flights expire.
There are published fares like New York City-JFK (JFK) to Charleston (CHS) for 13,000 SkyMiles round-trip or Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Nashville (BNA) for 23,000 SkyMiles.
But then there are some even better, unpublished deals like Boston (BOS) to Charleston (CHS) for just 11,000 SkyMiles roundtrip. Or fly from New York City-JFK to Savannah (SAV) – one of our favorite cities in the south – for just 13,000 SkyMiles, nonstop and round-trip.
Delta says these rates are eligible for travel between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30, though we’re seeing cheap availability on some of these routes as early as June.
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 in advance.

These flash sales are one of the best ways to use your Delta SkyMiles. And this latest flash sale has some pretty decent deals to travel within the U.S. You just have to find them.
And we always find that the deals go far beyond what Delta is advertising – in fact, the best ones are never advertised! Check out how easy it is to get to New York City-JFK (JFK) to Charleston (CHS) for just 13,000 SkyMiles.
Or get from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Austin (AUS) for as low as 18,000 SkyMiles roundtrip – nonstop. Austin is one of our favorite cities in the U.S. for a long weekend trip, so this is a great opportunity.
But one of the best, unadvertised deals here is New York City-JFK (JFK) to Savannah (SAV) for just 13,000 SkyMiles round-trip – that’s an absolute steal.
If you’re willing to fly basic economy – giving up seat selection and some other perks – you can get some of these deals for even fewer SkyMiles. Delta has started to expand basic economy to more and more award flights nationwide, though it’s still not available on every route. And while that’s generally bad news, it could save you some SkyMiles if that’s worth it to you.
Delta SkyMiles get a bad rap, but these sales are a big part of the reason why we think they can be insanely valuable. Just be sure to hop on these sales quick, because Delta says these rates will disappear after Thursday, May 16!
