We all love to knock Delta SkyMiles, but sometimes they really can be the best option to get your family where you want to be on miles For two more days you can now book discounted Delta awards!  For example, during this sale you can fly in economy in the lower 48 for just 21,000 miles round trip instead of the normal 25,000 miles (assuming saver availability, and yes, I know that can be tough to find in some markets).

That means you could fly nonstop from NYC to Salt Lake City from January 8th  – January 12th to get in some weekend skiing for just 21,000 miles per person.  I was able to find availability easily when searching that route for a family of four.  During this sale, those flights for four would cost you 84,000 total miles instead of the usual 100,000.  We can all laugh at SkyMiles again another day, but for now, that is a pretty solid deal on SkyMiles. 

Discounted Delta Awards

I will add that when first searching for the flights it showed as 26,500 miles per person, but then when I added the return flight to price dropped down to 21,000 miles per person.
