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.

JetBlue is running a great flash sale with flights from numerous cities on both coasts starting at just $20 or 400 JetBlue TrueBlue points plus fees one-way.

Flights are available from cities such as New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) and Washington DC (DCA). You can even fly to some international destinations like Bermuda (BDA) and Grand Cayman (GCM) one-way for at reduced prices. Departure dates and times are very specific with this sale and travel dates are Sept. 1 – Nov. 1. Keep in mind that all tickets are in JetBlue’s Blue class, which means you won’t get an included checked bag and you’ll have to pay extra to change your ticket unless you have elite status or an eligible JetBlue credit card.

To search, head to JetBlue’s flash fares page and filter the list by your departure city.

This is a good opportunity to use your TrueBlue points since award redemptions are tied to the cost of the ticket. You can transfer points from Citi ThankYouAmex Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards to JetBlue.
