Via The Flight Deal, American Airlines is selling tickets to Puerto Rico from Chicago, New York (LaGuardia), and Boston, for ~$100! But the offer ends today, September 29, 2016! And you’ll have to book at least 7 days in advance.
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!
American Airlines Tips
Folks with the Citi Prestige Card can use Citi ThankYou points to purchase tickets at a rate of 1.6 cents per point on American Airlines. Check the Citi Travel Portal to see if the same fares are available!
And you’ll get the first bag checked free for yourself and up to 8 travel companions with the Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard® or Barclaycard Aviator Silver card (not available for new sign-ups). You do NOT have to use the card to pay for your ticket!
Folks with the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard® can get their first bag checked free for themselves and up to 4 traveling companions. But, only on domestic itineraries (including Puerto Rico).
Note: You can hold a reservation on American Airlines for up to 24 hours and cancel without penalty if you change your mind.
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.
