If you currently hold a Platinum, Gold, or Reserve Delta SkyMiles card from American Express or hold any Medallion status then you might want to pay attention. My email states this is only for card members however the terms of the offer state it is also valid to members with Medallion status so YMMV. Delta is currently running a 2-day sale exclusively for card members offering you up to 10,000 miles off on a round-trip award redemption! In order to take advantage of these reduced award rates you must book your award flights by the end of Tuesday, 9/23/14.
The amount of the discount depends on your destination and can range from 4,000 miles off up to 10,000 miles. These also are only applicable to economy class redemption’s. These discounts are available only for travel on select dates between October 22, 2014 and February 28th, 2015.
There are quite a few exceptions and requirements which may make this a little harder for some of you to take advantage of including a lot of blackout dates which make the offer a little less appealing. But this could still be a great deal if you can make everything line up.
