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 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 Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Round-trip flights to Abuja, Nigeria, are on sale from both the east and west coasts right now via Lufthansa and United Airlines. Book yourself a vacation to the African continent for less than the cost of a new iPhone, or simply leverage the discount fare into a mileage run that will earn you well over 12,000 miles from either New York or San Francisco. Fares begin at $681 round-trip from a number of US cities.

There aren’t any tricks to finding these deals. Just head to Expedia or Priceline.
