Joseph: A handful of deals for ya today.
1. JetBlue Fares Starting at $38 One-Way (2 Days Only)
Link: JetBlue Sale
You’ll have to book by May 2, 2018 (the earlier of 11:59 pm Eastern Time or local time) to get these discounted rates. Valid travel is between May 8 and June 27, 2018. Blackout dates apply.
You can find one-way coach fares starting at $38 (though nearly all fares are higher).
Some examples of one-way flights you can buy on sale are:
- Atlanta to Boston – $44
- Salt Lake City to Long Beach – $74
- Buffalo to Orlando – $84
- New York (LaGuardia) to West Palm Beach – $99
The best routes sell out quickly, so check now to see if you want any of these fares! You have 24 hours to cancel a reservation if the flight is at least 7 days away. So, you can take advantage of these extremely cheap fares and finalize plans later.
2. Effortless Starwood Points for Mobile Check-In
If you’ll be staying at either Four Points by Sheraton, Le Meridien, The Luxury Collection, Sheraton, St. Regis, Tribute Portfolio, or Westin hotels through June 15, 2018, you’ll get a bonus 250 Starwood points for checking in through their mobile app.
Because you can transfer Starwood points to Marriott at a 1:3 ratio, this promotion is effectively worth 750 Marriott points per check-in. That’s not a lot of points, but earning them couldn’t be easier. And if you’re making a number of stays in the next month and a half, it could really add up!
3. 25% Bonus When You Transfer AMEX Membership Rewards Points to Flying Blue
Flying Blue is the loyalty program of Air France and KLM. They are a transfer partner of all the flexible points programs, like Chase Ultimate Rewards points, Starwood points, and AMEX Membership Rewards points.
Through June 15, 2018, you’ll get a 25% bonus when you transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Flying Blue. So you’ll get 1,250 Flying Blue miles for every 1,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points you transfer.
I’ve personally transferred points to them multiples times for cheap trips between Europe and the Middle East, and even just around the US on their partner, Delta. You definitely shouldn’t ignore Flying Blue in your Big Travel strategy!
4. Save on Hilton Stays With AMEX Offers
AMEX Offers are a fantastic way to save money on everyday purchases. They’re targeted statement credits or bonus points that only folks with American Express cards receive, for things like shopping, travel, and dining.
This latest AMEX Offer will give you 3,500 AMEX Membership Rewards points after you spend $300+ at Hilton hotels in the US. Just add the offer to your card, make your reservations directly with Hilton, pay with your qualifying card, and you’ll get the bonus!
Let me know if you’re targeted! And if you don’t have a qualifying AMEX card, check our hot deals for your best options!
