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 (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). 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.

This flash sale from JetBlue is scary good. The today-only Get Ghoul-ing sale is offering a host of flights at $31 or 1,300 JetBlue points one-way — and all available routes are priced at the same amount. The $31 price is, of course, a nod to the date of Halloween, which is around when these deals are valid.

A number of domestic routes are included in this $31 sale, including Austin to Orlando (head to Mickey’s Halloween Party!), Long Beach to Reno, Providence to Fort Lauderdale and New York-JFK to Atlanta. If you wanted to book with JetBlue points, you could even use the current transfer bonus from Citi ThankYou Rewards to your advantage.
