Summary

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 does have some decent deals — such as Boston to Fort Lauderdale for only 12,000 SkyMiles round trip — but it also includes some relatively poor deals when compared to the aforementioned award chart…

…and that each of the deals lasts only approximately one week renders this sale virtually worthless to you if you are not able to travel during the designated week of the route on which you want to travel — with the exception that a round-trip airfare between Seattle and Tampa is only good September 9, 2019 through September 11, 2019.

Can that really be correct — or is that yet another error?
