Back in June, Norwegian announced a major US expansion, adding a handful of fifth-freedom routes from three US cities to two destinations in the Caribbean — naturally, with phenomenal fares for each. To celebrate the new routes (and fares!), Norwegian is offering TPG readers a 25% discount off the base fare on any flight to the Caribbean. You must book by 5:59pm ET on Friday, November 27.
To get the discount, all you need to do is search for flights on Norwegian’s site, then enter code TPG25 into the field pictured above on the flight results page. You’ll see the new fares instantly, with a 25% discount (off the base ticket price). It’s important to note that this 25% discount only applies to the base fare, not the taxes (which oftentimes make up the majority of the ticket price). You’ll save just $8 on a $158 round-trip fare, for example, bringing the total cost to $150. The discount can save you a bundle on pricer dates, however, such as over Presidents’ Day weekend — regular fares to Guadeloupe are a whopping $737 round-trip, or a much more reasonable $584 with the TPG25 code (a savings of $153 per person).
Note that checked bag fees are only included with LowFare+ and Flex tickets. Otherwise, expect to pay $17 for the first bag online or $50 at the airport. LowFare+ is available for a $24 premium over the base fare, and includes one checked bag and a seat assignment.

Note that there are many other dates available with low fares, though few with prices as low as what you’ll see above. Availability for lower fares is limited, and regardless of when you’d like to travel, you must book by 5:59pm ET on Friday, November 27 to use the TPG25 discount code.

The Points Guy Assessment: The Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great pick for the beginner and the frequent traveler. The CSP has superb travel benefits, double points on certain purchases, and a 50,000 point sign up bonus. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year so this puts it as one of the less expensive cards, while still allowing you to earn one of the most valuable point currencies.
