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 between the 48 United States and Europe required a minimum redemption of 60,000 SkyMiles.

This sale is a good one on certain redemptions and a fair to poor on on others — for example, Atlanta to either Madrid or Barcelona is hardly a bargain at 88,000 SkyMiles round trip; but Delta Air Lines can get away with that because it can — and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written.

Even if you do secure a good redemption rate, one other disappointment is that the travel periods on most flights appear to be only a week or so. Unless you can absolutely travel during the aforementioned weeks in August, this sale is virtually useless — especially with the flights which have the poorest redemption rates.
