Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
JetBlue’s insane $128 round-trip transcon fares went quickly yesterday (bringing down the airline’s site in the process), but there are still some great deals to be had today. Fly from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles (LAX) and Las Vegas (LAS) from just $64 one-way this week and next. Availability is limited but if you’re looking to book some last-minute holiday travel, be sure to check these deals out. There are some other flights available from Boston (BOS), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and more — some of those can be had for as little as $29 one-way. Considering how quickly yesterday’s fares went, don’t wait to book!
