How Does Pay with Miles International Work?
Pay with Miles International is an exclusive benefit for Card Members who have a Delta SkyMiles Credit card. This benefit allows Card Members to use their miles, starting at just 5,000 miles, to discount the price of tickets. A Card Member can reduce the cost of their ticket by $50 for every 5,000 miles. For example, redeeming 10,000 of your miles takes $100 off your fare, 15,000 miles takes $150 off, 20,000 miles takes $200 off, etc.
A Card Member selects a round-trip flight from Atlanta, GA to Washington, D.C. for $250. He has 22,000 miles in his SkyMiles account and decides to use Pay with Miles to redeem 20,000 miles to reduce his ticket cost by $200. The remaining balance is just $50 after applying the 20,000 miles.
