Score Award Flights to/from new York City with Delta’s Flash Sale (Ends at Midnight)

AdSense

Delta Air Lines has announced a new monthly flash sale for SkyMiles members, and this time it’s for domestic flights to and from to New York City.

Round-trip award flights start at just 11,000 Delta SkyMiles and go up to 20,000 miles, depending on city pairs. Travel must originate in one of the 48 lower U.S. states. To take advantage of the discount, make sure to book your tickets by 11:59 p.m. ET on Oct. 12 and travel between Nov. 1 and Dec. 14 (blackout dates apply).

A domestic round-trip flight typically requires 25,000 Delta SkyMiles. Depending on where you are, you can save quite a bit of miles. The awards are somewhat distance-based, which means the shorter the distance between two cities, the fewer miles a flight requires, but not all follow the same formula. Let’s view a couple of examples.

Passengers originating in Washington, D.C., can fly between our nation’s capital and New York City for 11,000 SkyMiles round-trip, and there seems to be plenty of availability. Cash fares come to $256, so it’s a great use of SkyMiles.

A round-trip flight between Denver and LaGuardia Airport costs just 16,000 SkyMiles, plus $11.20 in carrier-imposed taxes. The cash rate for this flight comes to $241.

Those on the West Coast can take advantage of the sale as well. Los Angeles to NYC costs 20,000 SkyMiles for a round-trip journey. However, this flight goes to LaGuardia as well, and there’s a layover in each direction. Twenty thousand SkyMiles is not a bad deal with cash fares hovering around $345.

If you’re in the empire state of mind, I recommend making the decision to visit New York City shortly. The flash sale will end at midnight, and the decreased redemption rates will disappear.
