Delta Will Rebate Up to 25% of the Miles You Need for a Reward Ticket

This is a good deal: Delta will rebate you miles back when you book an award ticket with them by October 31st for travel through April 30th. You’ll earn a 10% rebate on your first coach award ticket and a 15% rebate on each additional ticket. You’ll earn a 20% rebate on your first Business/First/BusinessElite ticket and 25% on all tickets thereafter.

You have to fly on Delta or Delta Connection metal. Other than that, there are no restrictions. You’ll get the miles rebated back into your account 8-10 weeks after you complete your trip.

We all know about Delta’s availability issues, so as always, good luck getting “low” mileage awards. Also, Delta’s award chart isn’t exactly chock-full-o’-bargains. Even at 20% off business class tickets you’re now roughly in-line with the lowest mileage rates offered by other alliances. Think of it this way: you’re better off getting 10-25% off those mileage totals than not getting it off. Plus, many of you took advantage of Delta/Amex bonuses recently so you may be sitting on a bunch of miles. Might as well use them now.
