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.

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 to be available sometime this month.

You can compare the redemption rates of this sale to when award charts used to exist, as you would have needed to redeem a minimum of 80,000 SkyMiles for a round-trip flight between South Africa and the United States; and a minimum of 60,000 SkyMiles for a round-trip flight between Europe and the United States. Portions of this sale are very good — especially some of the SkyMiles redemption components and not most of the cash components, in my opinion — and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written…

…and 28,000 SkyMiles is the lowest redemption rate I have ever seen round trip between the 48 contiguous United States and London. If you have always wanted to go to London and the dates work for you, I would jump on this one if you have enough SkyMiles to redeem — as well as low as 30,000 SkyMiles to Paris or Amsterdam.

Edited to add: Round trip travel to or from South Africa is as low as 54,000 SkyMiles — not 68,000 SkyMiles — which is definitely also worth the redemption.
