Delta’s SkyMiles flash sales can sometimes be much ado about nothing, but today, they’ve announced one way tickets out of LGA for starting at 5,000 miles!
One-way Main Cabin tickets range from 5,000-10,000 miles depending on your destination, and there are a few great cities to escape the cold on the list (and some that are even colder, if that’s your thing). Award tickets must be purchased by Wednesday, October 12, 2016 and tickets have limited travel dates, beginning December 1 through December 20, 2016.
If you’re based in the New York City area and were thinking of getting away in December, this is a great use of miles. Purchasing tickets from LGA to BOS (round trip) with this promotion would cost you 10,000 miles and $11.20 in taxes round trip.
Meanwhile, purchasing a ticket with the same departure and arrival times in a weekend in November would cost you 21,500 miles, but the same $11.20 in taxes. While the taxes stay the same, you’re saving yourself half the miles.
This sale may not be ground-breaking by any means, but they’re a great use of points if you’re thinking of getting away in December. As always, you’ll have to book your award flights directly with Delta.
So – December weekend trip anyone?
