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.
This flash sale from JetBlue is scary good. The one-day only Get Goul-ing Sale is offering a host of flights at $31 one-way — no higher. You can select from a number of domestic routes that are included in this sale, but the highlights are transcon flights between Burbank (BUR) and Boston (BOS) and Phoenix (PHX) and Boston (BOS) for $31 one-way or $149 round-trip.
Do note that for all of these discounted flights, you’ll have to travel on a set of specific dates in order to get a $31 fare. In most cases, the travel is on Oct. 29, Oct. 30 or Oct. 31. However, we did see some $31 fares outside of those dates — like on Nov. 2.
To find the routes that are included as part of this flash sale, head to JetBlue’s sale page. Keep in mind that the Get Ghoul-ing sale is only valid through Oct. 12 at 11:59pm ET or local time and while supplies lasts.
