Bottom Line

Delta continues to impress with their solid flash sales. Delta flash sales are one of the main reasons we place a higher value on the SkyMiles program than most.

With the lack of an award chart, Delta can effectively charge you as many SkyMiles as they please for an award ticket. What many fail to realize is that this can often work in your favor as is the case with this Delta SkyMiles flash sale. This sale ends August 15th, 2018 at 11:59 EST, so don’t wait if you are thinking about booking.
