Delta’s miles are some of the hardest to use. They make it far more difficult to get a decent value from miles than any other airline and they don’t even publish an award chart anymore. The Skypesos moniker is well deserved.

Their auctions though can be worth a look.

For example if you are able to escape to beautiful Whistler, BC from May 8-15, you can bid on a 4 bedroom residence from Exclusive Resorts.

“As a SkyMiles® member, you’re invited to enjoy a seven (7) night stay in one of Exclusive Resorts’ stunning four-bedroom private residences in Whistler, British Columbia offering more than 4,200 square feet of exquisitely finished living space. Located at Kadenwood Estates, an intimate and cozy mountain retreat, this home features a unique, rustic design with a spacious gourmet kitchen with a large barn door separating it from the media room. In the living room, a birch bark canoe is suspended from the ceiling. Located high in the mountains above Whistler Creekside Village, you’ll feel a closeness with nature rarely found in any top mountain resort.
-Personalized pre-trip planning and dedicated on-site Concierge
-Private hot tub
-Outdoor grill
-Ski-In / Ski-Out access
-Spa access
-Washer & Dryer
-Steam shower”

The auction ends at 3pm ET, though it’s extended for another 5 minutes every time there’s a bid.

The current bid is just 53K miles. The value of the house rental in Whistler is likely around $5,000, so you can get quite a decent value from your Skypesos with this auction.

Cathay Pacific flies the most luxurious flight within North America from JFK to Vancouver. They typically don’t open award space until closer to the flight, but they actually have 1 first class award and 2 business class awards from May 8th from JFK-Vancouver that you can lock in before the AA devaluation tomorrow when business goes from 25K to 32.5K and first goes from 32.5K to 50K each way. You can lock in more space by booking travel for other dates that have award space and changing the dates for free when space opens up on flights that you want, though you’ll have to pay a redeposit fee if it never opens. You have to call AA to book awards on Cathay Pacific.

why don’t 4 families split this?
15k miles a family isn’t bad for this 🙂

thenewguy

dan you personally just gave Delta 80,000 of their miles back

some lucky guy was about to get it for 50k before you grabbed it from him

notcooldan

c’mon dan…at least wait until the auction is over..

Agreed

@notcooldan
Agreed. He grabbed my Mets-Cubs tickets away from me this am.

Another great use of sky pesos is VS to JNB in J class. Probably has the best availability on this route and it’s only 80k, although that’s increasing soon.

Why will change with AA be free?

Do see any moments listed

He needs content to post

Skypesos? Four of us are flying back from Mia – LGA after Pesach for 7500 “Skypesos” ea.

May is still ski season there ?

Either it’s #ddms_effect or it’s just the same sniping I used to see on eBay before Buy It Now became the norm. Correlation ≠ Causation

Danny

Exclusive resorts properties cost $1250 per night so the value is actually closer to $9000 aside from the fact that the $1250 price is only available to members who prepay about $250k worth of nights.
So whoever got that got this for 130k got a amazing deal.

Look, I can see that people were pissed that the auction went skyhigh because of the post, but as someone with a lot of delta miles and never ever having been made aware of Delta auctions, I am glad to be more informed about ways to use my miles in the rapidly sinking airmiles vortex.
