JetBlue has a fantastic sale with coach tickets as low as $39 on certain routes this winter.
But you must book today, December 2, 2015, by 11:59 pm Eastern Time (or local time, whichever is earlier) to get the deal!
This is a great opportunity for a cheap last-minute getaway before the holidays! Or to visit somewhere warm for a relaxing break!
Let’s look at where you can go!
What’s the Deal?

There are blackout dates between December 17, 2015, and January 6, 2016 (Christmas and New Year), January 18, 2016, (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), and February 13, 2016, to February 20, 2016 (Valentine’s Day).
Plus February 4 to 9, 2016 (for San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland only – that’s during the Superbowl).
You also must travel Monday through Thursday, or Saturday.
Other cities may have other blackout dates, so read the fine print.
That said, I didn’t have trouble finding seats. In the example above, there are fares as high as $344 between Charleston and Fort Lauderdale. So $39 is an outstanding deal to save a lot of money!
Remember, you must book by today, December 2, 2015, by 11:59 pm Eastern (or local) time, whichever is earliest for you.
Here are some other 1-way deals I found interesting! Fly between:
- Boston and Washington, DC – $54
- Buffalo and New York City – $59
- Houston and Boston – $59
- San Francisco and Las Vegas – $59
- San Juan and St. Maarten – $59
I don’t fly JetBlue, but I have friends who are loyal flyers because of their extra legroom, complimentary in-flight Wi-Fi, and free snacks, including Doritos. 😉
Remember, JetBlue recently started charging for your 1st checked bag on their lowest fares. Read my post about why it might make sense to pay a slightly higher fare!
And don’t forget, if you don’t collect JetBlue points, you can now credit your paid flight to Singapore Airlines instead.
If you already have JetBlue points, consider using them to book cheaper award flights now. That’s because the price of a JetBlue award flight depends on the cost of a paid ticket!

Get Free Hotel Nights With These 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!
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
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 Airbnb is a great 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.
To get the deal, you must book today, December 2, 2015, by 11:59 pm Eastern Time (or local time, whichever is earlier).
Travel between December 9, 2015, and February 29, 2016. There are blackout dates around Christmas, New Year, and Valentine’s Day, and for specific cities, so read the fine print.
This is a terrific opportunity for folks to sneak away for a holiday shopping weekend. Or a getaway to warmer places now that it’s getting colder!
