The Offer In a Nutshell
- Where: Between the 48 continental United States & Europe
- How much: 50,000 miles round trip in economy class; 110,000 miles in Delta One
- When: Travel between August 1, 2017 and October 31, 2017
- Deadline: Wednesday, March 15th at 11:59pm Eastern
Availability is wide open in economy class with some availability in Delta One as well.
Here’s New York to Dublin in economy class in late September and early October for 7 nights — note that prices are round trip:
Availability is not quite as wide open for business class, but there are some dates available:
Taxes and fees will vary quite a bit depending on your destination. The examples above are from New York, but similar pricing and availability can be found from Boston and Atlanta and I expect a number of other major gateways as well.
If you are an American Express Business Platinum cardholder and you’re considering transferring Membership Rewards points to Delta for this sale, you may want to first consider paid fares. For example, with this fare sale from New York and Boston to Dublin, the net cost for business class in terms of Membership Rewards points may be less and you would additionally earn miles.
However, other European destinations are also available and these award prices are quite good for round trip travel — in some cases on nonstop flights.
