Delta is running an unannounced a flash sale, with flights to Mexico from around the US from 12,000 SkyMiles round trip for dates starting this summer and extending out towards the end of the booking calendar. Availability varies from month to month, but 6K SkyMiles each way is pretty hard to beat.

  • Delta SkyMiles flash sale with award tickets from cities around the US to several cities in Mexico for 12,000 miles round trip
  • Use Delta.com to search
  • Departure airports being reported (others available with variable pricing) include:
    • ATL/BNA/BOS/BWI/FLL/JFK/LAX/MCO/MIA/MSY/ORD/SAN

    • MEX/CUN/CZM/ZIH/SJD/PVR

Key Terms

Quick Thoughts

These are excellent award prices for round trip travel considering that most programs charge 12,500 miles one way for a domestic ticket. Mexico is normally in another region (and therefore more expensive). The screen shot above shows excellent availability for New York to Cancun in January at 12,000 miles and $80 round trip. While airfare sales do sometimes bring the price below $300 RT, prices are sometimes higher (especially if you’re trying to lock in popular dates in advance) and this looks like a pretty good value out of SkyMiles.

19A number of departure and destination airports are available, but prices do vary a bit (that’s certainly not unexpected with Delta award tickets). Round trip rates to Los Cabos from New York and Chicago are running from 24,000 miles round trip, which is still an excellent deal compared to what most other programs charge for economy class awards. Baltimore to Mexico City is ringing in from just 14,000 miles round trip this summer.

It’s worth checking other cities if you’re not located in one of the example cities given as flights can be available for a few thousand miles more. For instance, flights are available this fall from Albany, NY to Mexico City for 20,000 SkyMiles round trip. That’s not as nice as paying 12K or 14K, but it again beats what you’d pay with most programs. The value is decent for SkyMiles.

It’s not common to find prices this low out of Albany, NY in terms of SkyMiles.

Dates extend through the spring. If you find any other great deals, let us know in the comments.
