Deal alert: Flights around the US and Caribbean from $44 or 2,200 points
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.
JetBlue has launched its latest sale, with flights across the U.S. going for as low as $44. There are some excellent opportunities here, including flights to Florida from New York for just $44 and Florida to Puerto Rico for $94. Even cross-country flights are on sale and are available for $99 (Boston to Los Angeles). Tons of routes qualify for this deal, so be sure to search your routes and dates to see if they’re discounted.
