1.   $29 One-Way to Florida on Frontier

Via Points Miles and Martinis, you can fly 1-way from Washington, DC, to Tampa and Fort Myers, Florida, from $29.  But most fares are higher.

The lowest prices are on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

This could be a good deal for folks who can travel light.  That’s because on Frontier Airlines you’ll pay fees for carry-on bags, checked bags, and seats!

Pay with your Chase Sapphire Preferred (2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on travel), American Express Premier Rewards Gold (which earns 3X American Express Membership Rewards points on tickets booked directly with airlines), or Barclaycard Arrival Plus (2.2% back on travel).

  2. Hi Daraius,
    I have HHonors Gold status through traveling a lot for work last year and have selected the free breakfast option in the MyWay options. I’m planning a trip to Australia later this year and booked some reservations at 3 different Hilton and DoubleTree, but all of the confirmation emails only show Complimentary Internet Access under “HHONORS GOLD MY WAY ON PROPERTY BENEFITS” in the email. Do you know if I’ll actually receive the complimentary breakfast as well or if Australian properties don’t offer the complimentary breakfast? Thanks for your help!

  3. Daraius,
    I used a large number of American miles last year and don’t see any 10% bonus miles posted. Do you know when they come, once a year? after each flight purchase?

  4. @Poohcrackers, I stayed at a Hilton in Australia last month (Surfer’s Paradise) and got the free breakfast benefit as a Gold member.

  5. @Rachel, Great, Thanks so much!
