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 has announced another flash sale, this one called the GO GO GO Sale. A wide variety of domestic and international routes are on sale and the cheapest flights can be had from just $43 or 2,200 JetBlue points + $5.60 one-way. You’ll want to look at the sale page here for a list of the discounted routes.
You must book by Dec. 12, 2018, at 11:59pm ET or local time. Additionally, you must travel between Jan. 10 and March 27, 2019, though there are blackout dates between Feb. 15-25. Also note that for some of the routes the cheapest fare found was outside of the sale period.
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 or Expedia.
This is also a good opportunity to use JetBlue TrueBlue points since award redemptions are tied to the cost of the ticket. You can transfer points from Citi ThankYou, Amex Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards to JetBlue at a 1:1 ratio,
