Summary

If you cannot find what you want with this sale, more markets within the 48 contiguous United States are available for as few as 10,000 SkyMiles round trip with this weekly sale, which ends a day later on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.

Although the sale claims award tickets for as few as 5,000 SkyMiles, that is the pricing of one way only but based on the requirement of a round trip purchase. I have always found that advertising practice deceiving. If advertising as few as 5,000 SkyMiles one way, that should not be based on a requirement of purchasing a round trip ticket, in my opinion.

A typical award ticket within the 48 continuous United States used to cost 25,000 SkyMiles round-trip when award charts used to exist; so this sale is fairly reasonable — if you can take advantage of the 10,000 minimum redemption of SkyMiles…
