Promotional pricing of award tickets is currently not available on Thursday, May 24, 2018 through Monday, May 28, 2018.

Fees for Award Travel

Award travel is subject to government-imposed taxes and fees and carrier-imposed charges which will cost $11.20 round-trip for Main Cabin, Comfort+, and Delta One Cabin travel between Seattle or Portland and the contiguous 48 United States, which are your responsibility and must be paid at the time the ticket is booked. Taxes, fees, and carrier-imposed charges depend upon the itinerary. Award seats are limited and may not be available on all flights or in all markets.

Award tickets booked within 72 hours of departure are not refundable and cannot be redeposited or reissued unless prohibited by local law or within the risk-free cancellation period. No changes will be permitted to the originating flight of award tickets booked within 72 hours; however, changes to the return are permitted if the return flight is not within 72 hours and the change is made at least 72 hours prior to flight departure. Fees apply for any changes; and taxes and fees will apply. Voluntary changes to award tickets after this promotion has ended may result in an increase in the cost of SkyMiles.

This offer cannot be transferred.

Other Terms and Conditions

Promotional redemption amounts are subject to availability and seats available at promotional award prices are limited. Pay with Miles tickets are not eligible for promotional redemption amounts.

Some routes may include one or more segments operated with single cabin aircraft featuring Main Cabin economy class service in place of Delta Comfort+. Please check the itinerary for details and class of service.

Summary

I still have ingrained in my mind that a typical award ticket within the 48 continuous United States should cost 25,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist. Even still, this sale is fairly reasonable — if you can take advantage of the 12,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles…

…but notice that the minimum redemption requirement for domestic award tickets increased by 1,000 SkyMiles since the last domestic monthly award sale back in October of 2017, when a round-trip redemption was 11,000 SkyMiles…

      I completely agree, JJ.

      I do not like sales or deals which are not completely transparent and force you to spend time researching to find the best deal — and yours was certainly no deal.
