$150 Round-Trip to Phoenix Is an Incredible Price for a Getaway! But Fares Are Selling Fast!

The Flight Deal reports fares from Baltimore are $161 round-trip and $185 round-trip from Washington, DC.

All fares route through either Chicago or Dallas, and American Airlines requires a 7-day advance purchase.

Note:  You can hold a reservation on American Airlines for up to 24 hours and get a full refund if you change your mind.

And if you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz or Expedia, you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket.  Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!

What If You’re Not in 1 of These Cities?

Southwest – If you need more Southwest points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Southwest.  Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, a friend can fly with you for (almost) free!

British Airways – If you’re a short flight away from an included city, you can save miles by using British Airways Avios points to book an award flight on American Airlines.

Chase Ultimate Rewards points , American Express Membership Rewards points, and Starwood Preferred Guest points transfer to British Airways.

Which Card to Use?

Remember to use a card that will earn you bonus points:

 

Remember, folks with the Citi Prestige can use Citi ThankYou points to purchase tickets at a rate of 1.6 cents per point on American Airlines.  I checked the Citi Travel Portal and the same fares were available!

And you’ll get the 1st bag checked free for yourself and up to 8 travel companions with the Citi Executive AAdvantage MasterCard or Barclaycard Aviator card (not available for new sign-ups).  You do NOT have to use the card to pay for your ticket!

Link:   Hot Deals – Hotel Credit Cards

If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.

Don’t Forget You Can Transfer Points From Bank and Airline Programs to Hotels Like Hilton

Check out my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton and Hyatt points!

Note:  Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

And if you’re feeling adventurous or prefer a neighborhood feel, Airbnb is a great way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.

Bottom Line

~$149 for a trip to Los Angeles or Phoenix from Boston is a terrific deal.

Folks in other cities including Baltimore, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, can fly to Los Angeles for well under $200.

If you’re looking for a quick getaway from September through early November, this a great opportunity.  Fares will sell out fast!
