In case you have missed it otherwise, note that today is the last day to book Delta award tickets to Europe at a reduced rate via their current “flash sale”. Through 11:59PM EDT on 3/15/17, you can book a round trip award to Europe from 50,000 miles in the Main Cabin, or 110,00 miles in Delta One (business class). Given how low economy fares to Europe can be, business class is likely the much better, and more comfortable, deal here.
Delta doesn’t have a published award chart, but the lowest you generally find business class awards these days using SkyMiles is 140,000 miles round trip, marking this as a 30,000 mile savings per round trip.
This flash sale is valid for travel August 1, 2017 – October 31, 2017, and my searches turned up pretty decent availability on a variety of routes, so it is worth a look if you are hoping to use your SkyMiles to head to Europe in the late summer or early fall. Their 5 week flexible date search calendar will help you quickly spot the dates that the flash sale is available. Remember you can also transfer your Amex Membership Reward points from cards like The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express to SkyMiles at a 1:1 ratio.
