Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend 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.

To celebrate May and the beginning of summer, JetBlue is offering a "Fly as You May" sale, with one-way fares starting from $33. Many cities — both domestic and international — from JetBlue's route network are included in the sale. To take advantage of these discounted fares for spring travel, you must book by May 3, 2017, by 11:59pm ET and travel between May 9 and June 14, 2017, with blackout dates between May 24 and May 30.

In my search, I found some fares that were even lower than advertised on dates later than June 14, so utilize the Google Flights calendar tool to see when travel is cheapest. Also note that for many of the routes, the lowest fares are for Tuesday or Wednesday travel.

Airline: JetBlue
Routes: Domestic and international routes
Cost: $33+ one-way, round-trip in economy
Dates: May - June 2017
Booking Link: Orbitz or Expedia
Pay With: The Platinum Card from American Express (5x on airfare), Chase Sapphire Reserve, Citi Prestige (5x on airfare) or Chase Sapphire Preferred (2x on travel)
