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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.
Flights to the island of Puerto Rico just dropped as low as $122 round-trip.
The best part? Some of these deals are available as soon as next weekend. Even better, these fares are available from East Coast cities where you won’t see them often.
These deals are available on American, JetBlue and United. For the first two airlines, your carry-on will be free of charge. If you take advantage of the United deal, you’ll have to pay extra for a carry-on as it’s a basic economy fare.
Scott’s Cheap Flights also found availability from other U.S. cities to San Juan (SJU), Aguadilla (BQN) and Ponce (PSE).
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline, Orbitz or Expedia.
