Delta is notoriously bad at opening up saver rates on their highest volume routes. In fact, I’d say the best use of Delta Skymiles are often on their partners: this is what I did when I redeemed Skymiles on China Airlines fantastic Super Diamond Business Class in 2016. Well…until TOMORROW…that has changed. Delta is having a flash sale and space is available on a ton of routes between the States and Europe. I copied and pasted the chart straight from Delta with links in tact…scroll to the bottom for ways to book with Virgin miles

Details:

  • These are roundtrip Delta One sale fares
  • They start at $2199 or 128k plus taxes and fees
  • Must be purchased by tomorrow
  • Travel between August 7th and September 5th, 2019
  • Must stay over a Saturday, max stay 12 months

If you end up purchasing any of these reduced tickets I’d highly recommend using your American Express Platinum card which earns 5x points on airline tickets made directly with the airline.

The ever ingenious Nick over at Frequent Miler dug up some goodies booking with Virgin

Virgin Atlantic is a transfer partner of Citi, Chase, and American Express which means more ways to shore up your balance if you’re short compared to Delta which is only an Amex partner. He discovered that most of the routes in the Delta sale are available to Virgin to be booked on their site ( some other cities are not purely because Virgin’s site doesn’t offer them so you’d have to call in ).  The best part of using Virgin Atlantic is you can book just one way, but also it’ll cost you just 50k miles and in a lot of cases a fraction of the taxes and fees. HIGH FIVE!

As an example here’s a look at a cool route between my hometown of Indianapolis and Paris. Oh la la!

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex℠and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners
