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

This sale is essentially the same sale as the one which was in effect last week, but with significantly fewer blackout dates on what seems to be fewer flight routes — Latin America and the Caribbean are not included this week as well — and do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which is currently in effect until tomorrow, Friday, October 12, 2018 through which you can redeem as few as 10,000 SkyMiles for round-trip flights on Delta Air Lines when you “fly south” for the winter.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist. This sale is very good to excellent — although Shanghai was available for the redemption of only 35,000 SkyMiles three weeks ago — and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written.
