Delta SkyMiles get a bad rap. There have been constant devaluations of the SkyMiles program (nicknamed SkyPesos by many miles enthusiasts). But last night, Delta released a pretty amazing offer that will run through this Saturday (August 30, 2019). All miles redeemed for a package through Delta Vacations will be valued at 2 cents instead of the standard 1 cent.
The offer, which covers “purchase of any Delta Vacations flight and hotel package from any Delta Vacations origin in the U.S. or Canada to any Delta Vacations destination,” does have some restrictions in the fine print:
- Minimum 2-night hotel stay required.
- Offer is redeemable up to 999,999 miles on flight and hotel packages to any Delta Vacations destination.
This is a pretty incredible offer from Delta and could provide some serious value for those holding a stash of SkyMiles. Keep in mind that you will still earn miles and elite medallion qualifying miles and dollars (MQM/MQDs).
Often times, you’d be hard-pressed to find SkyMiles valued at much over 1 cent per mile, so a 2 cent per mile redemption is some serious value especially if you have an upcoming trip on deck.
Don’t wait, though. The offer expires this Saturday on August 30, 2019.
How To Earn SkyMiles
Looking to stock up on some SkyMiles? The Blue Delta SkyMiles Card is currently offering 10,000 bonus miles for spending $500 in the first three months (see rates & fees) while the Gold Delta SkyMiles Card is offering 30,000 for $1,000 in spend (see rates & fees).
That said, another fantastic way to earn Delta SkyMiles is by using an American Express card that earns Membership Rewards like the American Express Platinum Card or Business Platinum Card. SkyMiles is a transfer partner program for American Express Membership Rewards.
