Delta’s Black Friday 2018 deals are mainly to Europe and Australia with cash and point fares. The SkyMiles award sales are particularly interesting and need to be booked by Nov. 25, for travel between May 23, 2019, and Sept. 3, 2019.
Prices start at $659 (or 36,000 SkyMiles) round-trip in Coach and you can fly into airports like Lisbon, Edinburgh and Rome.
The cash fares aren’t actually that great and certainly not worth holding out for. Google flights will book you similarly priced fares to Europe on decent airlines for a similar price.
But the 36,000 SkyMile price IS interesting, because you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points into your SkyMiles account at 1:1 ratio.
Alternatively, you can take out a Delta credit card and use the welcome bonus to fly. You probably won’t get enough points fast enough to use on this Black Friday deal but we have outlined the advantages of taking out the Delta card, in case you want to consider it for future deals. The current welcome bonus is 30,000 SkyMiles after you spend $1,000 in the first three months, plus, a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase within the first three months.
