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 new flash sale to major cities in the U.S. and the Caribbean, starting at just $24 one-way. We’re also seeing deals starting at 3,100 TrueBlue points.
You must book by March 11 and travel between March 18 and June 18, 2020. Keep in mind that there are numerous blackout dates, which include April 8 to 23, and May 21 to 25. The only fares on sale are Blue Basic (or JetBlue’s basic economy) or Blue.
Note that there currently aren’t any travel restrictions in JetBlue’s network, however, the airline suspended change and cancel fees for new flights booked between Feb. 27 through March 11, 2020, for travel completed by June 1, 2020. JetBlue on March 6 also announced that it would extend the suspension of change and cancel fees for all new flight bookings made between March 6 and March 31, 2020, for travel through Sept. 8, 2020.
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.
