1. JetBlue Spring Sale (Ends Today!)
JetBlue is having a sale on spring flights. The sale is for travel through May 20, 2015, but I’m finding some discount fares extending into summer and even fall!
You must book by the earlier of 11:59 pm Eastern Time or local time TONIGHT! Many of the best deals are for travel on Tuesday and Wednesday only. However, some fares include Saturdays and Sundays too, so you may be able to find a nice weekend getaway here!
Many folks like to fly JetBlue because they don’t charge for your 1st checked bag. But this could be changing soon, so keep this in mind when you book your flight!

4. Did You Take a Paid Flight Between the US and Asia or Oceania?
Via Maximizing Money, if you took at least 1 paid flight between January 1, 2000, and today, you may be entitled to receive money from a settlement fund. The lawsuit alleges the airlines involved agreed to fix airline ticket prices.
You can submit your claim online. However, the specific dollar amount you may be entitled to has not yet been determined. The earliest deadline to file is September 19, 2015, but you’ll have until 120 days after the settlement is final and effective.
Airlines included in the settlement are:
- Air France
- Cathay Pacific
- Japan Airlines
- Malaysian Airlines
- Singapore Airlines
- Thai Airways
- Vietnam Airlines
There’s still a lawsuit against Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, China Airlines, EVA Airways, and Philippine Airlines, but a settlement has not been reached.
It will be nice if folks can get some money from this, but keep in mind these settlements can take years!
