Advance reservations are required with pre-payment using a MasterCard. SPG brands include Starwood, Sheraton, Four Points, W, Aloft, Le Meridien, The Luxury Collection, Element, Westin, and St. Regis. Refer to promo code M3D.

Stay 4, 6 or 8 nights for more free night options! Choice brands include Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Sleep Inn, Cambria hotels & suites, and the Ascend Hotel Collection.

Lower mileage redemption promotion!
Delta SkyMiles members can now redeem as few as 5,000 points for one-way flights (taxes, fees additional) on Delta Air Lines for travel to select destinations within the contiguous 48 United States on travel through February 10. A 21-day advance purchase required. All route blackout dates (additional blackout dates apply in select markets): November 17-28 and December 15-January 3.
Redemptions must be made by October 21.
Note: Delta states that this offer is valid on more than 13,000 routes, but expect award seat availability to be slim. This promotion can be a good deal considering most round-trip travel within the 48 states requires a minimum point redemption of 25,000 points. But most popular domestic routes from Atlanta are served by low-cost carriers such as Allegiant and Frontier -- with major airlines often matching. Before deciding to redeem points, keep in mind that Delta SkyMiles are worth about 1.3 to 1.8 cents apiece (varies by analyst) and best saved for long-haul and international travel.
MileValue.com suggests this: Run your own numbers by looking up the cash ticket price and dividing that number by the total number of miles you would use for the award. If you get an amount lower than .013, then book the trips as a cash ticket.
