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.
If you haven’t jumped on a Hawaii deal yet (or simply want to return to the magical 50th state) here’s your chance to fly there on the cheap — we’re seeing tickets starting at $326 round-trip from cities all over the country. Tickets are generally available from February through May and then again from August through January 2019, though exact availability will depend on the route. You don’t need any tricks to get these airfares. Just find the dates you want by searching with Google Flights, then book on Orbitz, Expedia or directly with the airline itself.
