Book flights to Iceland for less than $400 round-trip

Currently, you can find flights to Reykjavik for less than $400 round-trip with wide-open availability from cities across the U.S. on United Airlines, reports TPG’s Stella Shon.

For example, you can book round-trip flights from New York (JFK) to Reykjavik for under $350 on Delta Air Lines. There are no tricks or special codes needed to find these fares.

Last call to pay less to ski this season with the Epic Pass: Lock in pricing by Sept. 6

For those who enjoy Vail Resorts and its partner mountains, there’s no better and more affordable option to ski than with an Epic Pass, reports TPG’s Summer Hull.

Epic Passes are available for this upcoming season — but you only have a few days left to take advantage of early-bird pricing. Right now, you can get your pass for around 20% less than standard prices. However, on Sept. 7, those prices jump.

For the coming season, Epic Local Pass is currently available for $583 (down from a starting price of $729 last season). The full Epic Pass is priced at $783 (down from a starting price of $979 last season). That pass unlocks unlimited skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek, Whistler Blackcomb, Breckenridge, Crested Butte, Stowe, Keystone, Park City and many other Vail-owned and partner resorts.

If you know you’re planning on hitting the slopes at all this upcoming season, now is the time to grab those passes.

Fly business class to Spain for as little as 49,000 points round-trip

Both American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards are currently offering bonuses for Iberia Plus, which is one of our favorite ways to fly business across the pond for just 34,000 points one-way during off-peak dates.

With Amex offering a 40% transfer bonus (and Chase offering 30%), this means you could book a round-trip business class flight on Iberia for as few as 49,000 Membership Rewards points or 53,000 Ultimate Rewards points, reports TPG’s Clint Henderson.
