~$295 Is a Great Deal for Non-Stop Flights to Barbados!

I found flights by searching on Google Flights.

You can get to New York by using your points!  British Airways Avios points are great for short-haul flights.  Because it only costs 4,500 British Airways Avios points 1-way in coach for flights less than 650 miles, and 7,500 British Airways Avios points for flights under 1,150 miles.

Or if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you could fly to New York, and bring a companion with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets.

Be sure to pay with the right card to earn bonus points!  The Chase Sapphire Preferred card earns 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 spent on travel.  And the Citi Prestige and the Citi ThankYou Premier cards both earn 3X Citi ThankYou points on travel.

And if you pay with the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express, you’ll earn 2X Delta miles per $1 spent on Delta flights!
