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 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.

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

I am not sure what happened to the deal of redeeming as few as 54,000 SkyMiles round trip to Japan which was featured only two days ago, as that sale was supposed to be in effect through Wednesday, August 29, 2018; but that seems to be gone, as after a few quick checks, the lowest redemption rates I could find at the time this article was written is 70,000 SkyMiles.

Do not confuse this sale with the monthly SkyMiles sale, which is expected to be available sometime next month.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist. This sale is excellent and arguably better than the one to Japan, and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written.
