12,000 points to the Caribbean on Delta? Sold.

Delta has discovered that people love the words flash and sale, preferably together in that order. The airline is back again, offering a flash sale on flights using SkyMiles points to hot destinations in the Caribbean. When we say hot – we mean literally hot. These sales are a tremendous way to save on flights, especially during peak holiday times. At 12,000 points per person and up – you can bring a friend!

The Dates

These deals are available in May and last sporadically all year. They even venture into 2019 with wide open availability from many cities in January, February and March of 2019. The east way to find dates is to go to Delta.com, go to the search box and press “miles” and then “flexible dates”.

How To Find Seats

Start by heading to Delta.com and logging in. Once logged in, go to search, press “miles” instead of cash and flexible dates. After your first batch of results, switch to the 5 week calendar to see five entire weeks where you’ll see the lowest possible prices. At 12,000 points round trip, there’s a lot of reason to be happy. First class is on sale too!

If these deals are for you – don’t wait. They won’t last long…
