Cheap Domestic First Class Short-Haul Mileage Awards on Delta

How to squeeze value from a Delta SkyMile

Nowadays, getting more than a penny of value out of a Delta SkyMile is a tall order. For example, a $1,300 transcontinental domestic First Class flight costs 120,000 SkyMiles – which is about a cent a mile.

Flying to Europe, you can easily spend 360,000 miles on a $2,500 Business Class ticket, netting much less than a penny in value for your SkyMiles (whereas with Amex and other currencies, you can get 4X+ the value).
