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 fourth sale for its A December to Adventure promo are low fares from the US to Cuba, starting at just $54 each way. Tickets are available from Fort Lauderdale (FLL), New York (NYC) or Orlando (MCO) to Camaguey (CMW), Havana (HAV), Holguin (HOG) and Santa Clara (SNU). And if you pay with JetBlue points, you will get an even better value, as in the case of Fort Lauderdale to Camaguey, which is just 100 points + $31 in fees, which is an effective price of $32 based on TPG's valuations. Availability is wide open for departures from January through September 2017 for some of the fares, but use Google Flights to find the lowest prices on your preferred route. But be sure to act quick, as this sale will most likely end tonight at 11:59pm ET.
