[Expired] Delta Flash Award Sale: Central America And The Carribean For 16,000 Round Trip

This deal has expired and is unfortunately no longer available. Never miss another deal again by signing up for free and instant notifications of new posts.

Update: When the promo first launched some flights were pricing starting at 6,000 miles round trip. Looks like that is a bug that has been fixed and now the lowest fares are 16,000.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Delta is offering round trip flights to Central America and the Carribean for 16,000 miles round trip plus taxes and fees.

The Fine Print

  • Sale Award Tickets to select destinations between the contiguous 48 United States and Caribbean beach destinations (ANU, AUA, BDA, BON, ELH, FPO, GCM, GGT, GND, KIN, MBJ, NAS, PLS, PUJ, SJU, SKB, STT, STX, SXM, UVF) or Central America (BZE, GUA, MGA, PTY, RTB, SAL, SAP, TGU).

  • Promotional pricing currently not available on the following dates:

    • Providenciales, Turks and Caicos (PLS) to Atlanta, GA (ATL): May 25 – June 1, 2018

Our Verdict

Despite it saying they started at 16,000 there are actually flights that start from 14,000 miles. For example ATL > PLS is 14,000 miles + $92.21 during this sale. Even cheaper is EWR > PLS that seemed to price out at 8,000 miles + $97.81 but that wasn’t a direct flight. If  you find anything cheaper, let me know in the comments. BWI to NAS is from 6,00 miles…

It’s also worth remembering that Delta doesn’t publish an award chart anymore so having these sales in my opinion is ridiculous. That being said they do price out less than they normally would and any reason to use up Delta miles is a good one. They also have a sale on domestic flights currently as well. Worth checking to see if you’re targeted for the 75,000 miles + $50 offer as well.

I just happen to be tracking a few DL fares on Google flights. All of them jumped substantially with the start of these “sales”. For example, one in F went from $493 to $1492 OW (FLL-YVR). There are very few scattered bargain fares that I can’t use.
I’ve always suspected that these “sales” are for the suckers, and now I’m sure of it. 😀

Darn, I think they made a mistake and just fixed it. My trip had been pricing at 11K round trip, I delayed booking it, and now I’m only seeing 22K.

Yep, I’m definitely sure. Miles required just doubled across the board.

Wow, also bummed that I was searching all prices just jumped. Flights that were 14K are now pricing at 75K! All in a matter of 10 minutes…

….so this was ultimately a pricing error on a special award sale. Roundtrips from 28K, whereas I saw about 10+ different islands from 14K yesterday.

Managed to get 2 from DFW-STT for 18000 each + $15. Thanks for the heads up William!
