Planning ahead for 2020 travel? If you’re considering Europe, Aer Lingus can help you stretch your budget a little further, and help you get a jump start on your Black Friday shopping to boot.

Starting this week, US and Canada travelers can take $100 off round-trip economy flights to Europe or $200 off round-trip business class flights to Europe. On some routes, such as Boston to Dublin, this drops the cost of a round-trip ticket down to $355 round-trip, all taxes and fees included.

Airline: Aer Lingus
Cost: from $355 round-trip in economy
Dates: book by 7 p.m. Dec. 3, 2019, for travel between Jan. 1 and March 8, 2020 
Pay With: The Platinum Card® from American Express (5x on airfare booked directly with the airline), Citi Prestige® Card (5x on airfare),  Citi Premier® CardChase Sapphire Reserve (3x on airfare), American Express® Gold Card (3x on airfare when booked directly with the airline) or Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x on travel)

Discounted rates between North America and Ireland are Aer Lingus SAVER class fares, which do not include checked bag and seat selection. If booking to Europe, the discounted tickets book into SMART class fares, which do include checked bag and advance seat selection. A free meal is always included on all transatlantic routes.

The Dublin-based carrier has made a big push to attract passengers this year. The airline debuted new livery in January, announced free Wi-Fi and a complimentary drink for “smart economy” travelers and added its first of seven total long-range Airbus A321LR aircraft to the fleet, complete with lie-flat business class seats. And in a move of particular interest to TPG readers, Aer Lingus joined the American Express Membership Rewards transfer family last summer, in August 2018.
