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.
We’re seeing great deals on JetBlue Mint to the Caribbean, Central America and the West Coast right now. If you’re unfamiliar with Mint, you should know that it’s the winner of the 2019 TPG Award for best domestic business class in the US. It offers comfortable lie-flat seats and meals by New York City restaurant Saxon + Parole, and it’s relatively affordable for a business-class product.
The Points Guy himself, Brian Kelly, is a fan of Mint — so much so, he declared it the best business-class product for domestic travel.
The deals originate only from hubs where Mint is offered, including New York-JFK, Boston Logan International (BOS) and Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) starting at just $330 one-way. Availability is between August and April 2020, and all fares are nonstop. The Mint deals to the Caribbean were first reported by God Save The Points.
