It’s that time of the month where Delta has their monthly Skymiles flash sale.

Which card should you use to pay for your reservation?

Since these Delta Main Cabin award tickets to Hawaii or Alaska for 35,000/20,000 round-trip is on Delta, the American Express Delta (Blue, Gold, Platinum, or Reserve) is an obvious choice due to the great perks for cardholders:

  • Priority boarding
  • Free checked bag
  • The ability to earn MQMs with both the Platinum and the Reserve versions

Other card options would be the Barclay Arrival or Citi Prestige due to their ability to offset a portion of the fare with points or flight credits, respectively.

The Bald Thoughts

A great opportunity to check off a bucket list destination with your Delta SkyMiles. Whether you choose a tropical island or the frozen tundra, you can’t go wrong with the value of redemption considering the recent SkyMiles devaluation. I personally will choose Alaska to see the northern lights. Which destination sounds better to you?

    Where are you seeing this?
    I plugged in some Feb dates and there are ZERO fares at 35,000 RT.

      It should be available in the next few hours. Since I’m a Delta Diamond Medallion member, we get to choose first for award sales and see the availability before others do. Thanks for reading my article, Patrick!
