Delta SkyMiles might not appear to be the most valuable currency out-there, however with a little digging around you’ll find out that Delta low-level domestic 25K mileage awards do exist.
Here’s some low-level awards I was able to find with decent availability.
Los Angeles- Las Vegas: 25,000 SkyMiles
Ft. Lauderdale- Atlanta: 25,000 SkyMiles
Los Angeles- Cincinnati: 25,000 SkyMiles
Anchorage-Minneapolis: 25,000 SkyMiles
New York (JFK)- Los Angeles: 25,000 SkyMiles
San Francisco- New York (JFK): 25,000 SkyMiles
Yes, some of these routes are meant to be a joke in this post like Los Angeles- Las Vegas, and Ft. Lauderdale-Atlanta, however many of these other ones have a lot of availability as well. For instance, there was plenty of low-level availability from Anchorage to Minneapolis.
Delta’a popular transcon routes between New York-Los Angeles and New York-San Francisco also had a bunch of dates for low level awards.
If you’re flexible with your travel dates, and if you’re willing to do a little searching, you should be able to find low level domestic awards as well.
If you’re looking for a way to rack up the Delta SkyMiles, the Delta Reserve card gives 10,000 MQM’s and 10,000 SkyMiles after the first purchase. The Platinum Delta Amex gives 35,000 bonus SkyMiles plus 5,000 MQM’s after spending $1,000, and the Delta Gold Amex gives 3o,000 bonus SkyMiles 5,000 after spending $1,000.
