Cancellations, Refunds, Changes and Transfers

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

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, as you would have needed to redeem a minimum of 100,000 SkyMiles for a round-trip flight between Australia and the United States. This sale is very good — and award seat availability is not scarce for many of these offers at the time this article was written…

…and although 48,000 SkyMiles from this sale back in September of 2018 was the lowest redemption rate I have seen for a round-trip flight between Australia and the United States for a seat in the economy class cabin, that sale was valid for travel from Thursday, September 13, 2018 through Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
