Delta just announced a 48 hour SkyMiles flash sale for flights to Mexico and the Caribbean! The nationwide sale covers travel from September 6 to November 16th. The sale starts at only 11,000 SkyMiles one-way (22k SkyMiles round-trip). This is almost 40% cheaper than normal redemptions of 17,500! I’ve done several searches and there appears to be great availability from even small regional airports. This sale should work from any airport with Delta service.

Thrifty Tip: There are longer layovers for some destinations. It will take trial and error to find the best dates and times.

  • One-way awards starting at 11,000 SkyMiles
  • Purchase by Wednesday, August 17 @ 11:59pm EDT
  • Travel period: September 6 – November 16th

Thrifty Tip #2: Book Economy Comfort! It’s only 3,500 more miles each-way. You get 2-3 inches of extra legroom, free alcoholic drinks as well as additional snacks. Economy Comfort is a much better way to travel. We always recommend you burn your miles, as they typically devalue over time.

Bottom Line 

This is a solid sale with great availability nationwide. We recommend checking multiple tropical destinations to see which have the shortest layovers from your departure city. If you’ve got the extra miles we also recommend booking Economy comfort for only 3,500 SkyMiles extra! The free snacks, drinks, and legroom make it a no brainer. Book quick, this sale ends Wednesday night at 11:59pm ET!
