Via Running With Miles, JetBlue is having a flash sale through 11:59 pm Eastern Time tomorrow, September 19, 2017. Prices are as low as $39 one-way.
I found flights from Pittsburgh to Fort Lauderdale for $59 one way on October 30, 2017. This fare is valid for travel between November 26 and December 14, 2017. Valid travel dates vary depending on the route.

To get in on the JetBlue fare sale, book your tickets by tomorrow, September 19, 2017, by 11:59 pm Eastern Time (or local time, whichever is earlier).
The sale is valid for certain travel dates between September 26 and December 14, 2017, depending on the route.
Routes start at $39, though most fares are more expensive. I still found some great deals on one-way coach flights, like from Boston to Atlanta for $59, to Dallas for $94, and to Bermuda for $129.
And remember, when JetBlue paid fares drop, award ticket prices go down, too! That’s because the award price is tied to the cash price.
If you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline 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!
And you’ll have 24 hours to cancel a reservation through JetBlue if the flight is at least 7 days away. So, you can take advantage of these cheap fares and finalize plans later.

Folks with the JetBlue Plus Card or JetBlue Business Card from Barclaycard get a free first checked bag for themselves and up to 3 companions on the same reservation when they use their card to pay for their ticket.
Here’s my review of the Barclaycard JetBlue cards. And the Barclaycard JetBlue card has an increased sign-up bonus for a limited time!
You can also transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points and Citi ThankYou points to JetBlue. But the best transfer ratio you’ll get (without a transfer bonus), is 5:4 (5 AMEX Membership Rewards points or Citi ThankYou points = 4 JetBlue points)
You’ll even earn 3X JetBlue points on Amazon purchases!
If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
Note: If you prefer to book paid stays, 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!).
Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays. Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
