Better Value With Partners

While the deal on flights to Alaska is a good deal, there are better options to be had on flights to Hawaii. By using partners to book flights with US carriers you can save yourself a ton of miles. You can get better value by booking Delta flights with Korean Air SKYPASS (25,000 miles roundtrip), and on American Airlines via British Airways Avios (starting 12,500 Avios); check out our post on the Best Points & Miles for Hawaii for more examples.

Overall

The regular Delta award flash sales are a nice value, this month is a slight exception, especially if you will be transferring credit card points to miles for the award. Using Ultimate Rewards or Membership Rewards points acquired through your The Platinum Card® from American Express, you are better served transferring the points to a partner airline and booking the flights through them, especially to Hawaii.
