The Fine Print

  • Tickets must be purchased no later than 11:59pm ET September 14, 2017 at delta.com
  • Pricing not available:
    • Alaska to the contiguous 48 United States: March 4 – 12, 2018
    • Contiguous 48 United States to Alaska: March 14 – 19, 2018

Our Verdict

I think it’s disingenuous that Delta doesn’t publish an award chart anymore and uses ‘dynamic pricing’ but still claim to have award sales like this. I think Alaska usually prices starting at 25,000 miles, not sure how much Hawaii is supposed to price at but I assume 40,000 miles.

    Availability is incredibly sparse, at least from where I live. Not even possible to get a trip for that amount.

  2. encin says:

    Alaska prices at 35K normally for saver award, so this is a good deal if you can find since you can build in two stop overs into your itinerary with Alaska.

    • dmoney says:

      How do you build in stopovers with Delta? I tried multi city on their site and it drove up the cost significantly.

      Also, is this really a deal for HI? You can use other programs for as little as 25k, even from the East Coast.

  3. P says:

    There’s actually lots of availability. Wow at least for SFO to KOA

  4. Jed says:

    I’m seeing lots of availability from southern California to Alaska for 19,000 miles, starting in October.

  5. Lrdx says:

    I’m based in the SF Bay Area, and all three airports have a flight to HNL (the cheapest is even Delta from SFO) in this timeframe for $397, making this deal a ~1.10 cent per mile deal… Considering you’d earn at least 5 miles if paid in cash, the value is down to 1.05. Plus 3xUR/3-5x MR/3xTYP if paying cash.. yeah, this isn’t for people from here.

    I guess it’s worthwhile for people further from Hawaii.

    • Shalabh says:

      I believe the whole point of accumulating points is to use them instead of cash. So this sale is a good proposition for using the Delta points before another devaluation converts Skypesos to Sky Zimbabwe Dollars.

  6. Darv says:

    Hawaii is normally 90,000 skymiles round trip from MSP.

  7. Joe S says:

    Normal Hawaii coach on Delta is 45K from US round trip. Lots of availability now from NYC area at 35K RT.

  8. Jon says:

    Can award tickets be cancelled without penalty up to 72 hours before the flight?

  9. abey says:

    35K from JFK with delta is plus a layover stop
    might be better off transfering Amex miles to hawaiian for non-stop
    (i will rather fly 12 hours non stop then 5 hours with a stop!)
