The most common days for airlines to release last-minute deals are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Delta's deals are typically for trips that leave Saturday and return on Monday or Tuesday. The flights with the earliest and latest departure times tend to be the cheapest. The best way for travelers to take advantage of deals is by being flexible, as last-minute deals are usually for a specific route.
Delta also offers Delta SkyMiles, its rewards program. Members of this program receive SkyMiles promotions and loyalty offers in addition to last-minute update emails.
Delta members can unsubscribe from promotional emails at any time. After the request is made, emails usually stop within 10 days.
