Is it a good deal to use Delta miles with the Miles + Cash option for 1 cent p/p?

Came across an amazing value; JFK to YVR nonstop in July at 9.5K miles one way or 19K round trip. Paid fare is $618. 3.2 cent return!
Saw some similar rates to Montreal as well for September. Must be some sort of Canada 'sale'.

does anyone know if Delta changed their unpublished saver award chart from US to South Africa? the last one Dan keeps referring to has business at 80K one-way, but i'm being quoted 95K by phone reps?

And awardhacker also still shows 80K?

Thanks, that might be it, but not sure why awardhacker is not reflecting the right price.

Can Delta miles be transferred to someone in the same household?

Tried booking a simple domestic reward flight and got error message, called up and they said my account is being audited and I need to send in my driver's license. I just did through the comment section as per rep suggestion and she said I need to wait a few days. Anyone have this before?

FWIW I never sold miles but I did do PGGMs and, when I booked dummy flights I used the wrong bday on myself. I have a hunch this is what caused it - booking flights with different birthdays for myself even though they were all cancelled ultimately. Thoughts?
