…for travel September 25 through November 14.Travel can originate in the contiguous 48 states or Alaska.
Technically the advertisement says as little as 20k miles roundtrip to Florida OR the Caribbean, but my initial scans only showed 25k roundtrips to the Caribbean.
This is a pretty good price to Florida, although the discount to the Caribbean is better. Not to mention–what would you really be saving your SkyPesos for anyways? I think these Delta Flash Sales are some of the best uses of SkyMiles if the condition for dates of travel lines up with your plans.
If you’re considering a trip down to Southern Florida or the Caribbean, I’d opt to book in November to put yourself at the far end of Hurricane season (not a coincidence with the timing of the sale, I’m sure).
The standard price to Florida depends on how long the flight is, but it’s generally 25,000 Delta miles roundtrip. The standard price to the Caribbean is 35,000 Delta miles roundtrip. Delta doesn’t publish an award chart but you can check out the latest prices in Scott’s chart comparing current United, American, and Delta award prices.
25k miles roundtrip to the Caribbean in Delta economy is almost a 30% discount off of the usual 35k price. That’s pretty decent. You’d pay 35k United miles or, at the least, 25k American Airlines miles flying American during their Off Peak dates. My searches yielded plenty of 25k roundtrips to various Caribbean destinations.
20k miles roundtrip to Florida is a 20% discount off the typical 25k roundtrip price.
