Cancelling Delta Award Ticket

I'm a no status Delta flyer who has recently redeemed miles for 2 one way tix to Jamaica.
I'm considering cancelling the tix and re-booking to a different destination. I'm not familiar with Delta's policy...can someone let me know if I would get my mileage/fees back? Flight is for Feb. 2nd.

Thanks!

Yes. If you pay the $150 redeposit fee.
What Will The Redeposit Fee Be If I Cancel An Award Booking?
The Award Ticket redeposit fee is $150 USD. This fee is waived for Diamond and Platinum Medallion members. Award Tickets not canceled at least 72 hours prior to the originating flight departure time are nonrefundable.

And if they're two one-ways, you'll have to pay the $150 for each.

You can get the fees back when you cancel, as a credit to your original form of payment (credit card used to purchase the tickets). If you cancel before T-72, it's $150 (except for DM and PM ) per ticket to have the miles returned to your account.

However, for Caribbean travel, you might be able to have a nice agent not charge the fee (or not for every ticket) if the original or new destination was affected by the hurricane. I don't think Jamaica was hit or included in a waiver, but perhaps the new place wasn't as badly hit as originally thought when you purchased the award tickets and now you see that the hotel you want in the new destination is operating again....if this is true.

Yes $150 per ticket and of course get taxes back. Note an agent may only charge it once, but it's technically per ticket.
