Refunds are not permitted on tickets except in accordance with the cancellation policy of Delta Air Lines.

Fees may apply for downgrades or reissued tickets and itinerary changes.

Changes to award tickets must occur at least 72 hours prior to the departure time of the flight being changed. 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 rior 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.

Promotional redemption amounts are subject to availability and seats available at promotional award prices are limited.

This offer cannot be transferred.

Many other terms and conditions — including the costs of taxes and baggage charges — apply to each offer. Be sure to review them prior to redeeming your SkyMiles for your flight reservations.

Summary

Do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which is expected sometime later this month.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist — and back then, round trip award tickets within the 48 United States required a minimum redemption of 25,000 SkyMiles.

This SkyMiles award “sale” is one of the worst and most pitiful award sales I have ever seen offered by Delta Air Lines — thanks to dynamic pricing of SkyMiles award tickets and the short lengths of time for each route. That this sale is fraught with errors and missing information does not exactly help, either.

I rarely say this; but with few exceptions, avoid this sale at all costs and wait for better redemption rates in future sales.
