Airline Fare Sales

JetBlue and Frontier Airlines have sales going on right now.  Here’s what you need to know about each deal!

1.   JetBlue Flash Fares Sale

Link:   JetBlue Flash Fares Sale

Until tonight, February 1, 2018, at the earlier of 11:59 pm Eastern Time or local time, JetBlue is selling one-ways fares starting at $20, with all government taxes and fees included!  There aren’t a lot of cities included in the deal, and most fares are higher.  And travel dates are very restricted.  But this is a great deal if it fits into your travel plans!

Some of the $20 one-way fares include:

  • New York to Boston
  • Pittsburgh to Boston
  • Las Vegas to Long Beach

There are also deals from:

  • New York to Orlando for $40 one-way
  • New York to Ft. Lauderdale for $40 one-way
  • Washington D.C. to Ft. Lauderdale for $40 one-way
  • Orlando to Havana for $70 one-way
  • New York to Aruba for $80 one-way

Because JetBlue award prices are tied to the actual cash price of the ticket, this is a nice opportunity to book cheap awards.  For example, you could book the $20 one-way fares for only 500 JetBlue points each!  But you’ll still pay taxes and fees on the award tickets.

Folks with the Barclaycard JetBlue Plus Card or Barclaycard JetBlue Business Card get a free first checked bag for the cardholder and up to 3 companions on the same reservation when you use your card to pay for your ticket.

Keep in mind 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.   Frontier Airlines Fly Away Sale

Link:   Frontier Airlines Sale

Frontier Airlines is having a sale with fares as low as $20 one-way!  To get this deal, you’ll have to purchase your travel by February 2, 2018, and fly by March 14, 2018.  And a 7-day advance purchase is required.

This is a great deal for domestic flights, including a lots deals to Florida and other southern destinations.  Some of the $20 one-way fares include:

  • Austin to New Orleans
  • Cedar Rapids to Orlando
  • Columbus to Tampa
  • San Francisco to Las Vegas

There are also great deals from:

  • Colorado Springs to Los Angeles for $39 one-way
  • Kansas City to Tampa for $39 one-way
  • Chicago to Las Vegas for $42 one-way
  • Long Island to Orlando for $44 one-way
  • Indianapolis to Tampa for $44 one-way

Before you book, know that Frontier charges extra fees for checked bags, carry-on bags that go in the overhead bin, seat selection, and more.  These fees can add up quick and take away from your savings.  So do the math to make sure this is a good deal for you!

See my posts for how to use Google Flights and ITA Matrix to find sale dates.  Then book directly on the Frontier website.

Hotel Information

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.

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I use 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.  

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.
