TODAY ONLY: Book 8,000 Mile Round-Trip Award Flights On United Airlines Through End Of Summer 2021

If you’re still dreaming about where to travel this summer, you should definitely pay attention to the award sale United Airlines is having today.  There are some prices on award tickets here that I don’t ever recall seeing.  I did a bunch of searches for a recent story I published on The Points Guy and I wanted to make sure to share some of that data here as well.  A few notes before we dig into city pairs: You have to book round-trip flights. You need to include a Saturday […]

HURRY: As Low As $245 ROUND-TRIP Business Class To Europe Through This Summer

I’ll keep this short so you can have as much time to book as possible, and I’ll update the post with some more details shortly.  There are business class fares from several US cities to several European cities for as low as ~$250 round-trip.  Miles Talk and View From The Wing have some examples. Remember that you have 24 hours to cancel any flight you book that departs or arrives in the US with no penalty. While this fare is bookable with a few OTAs, my recommendation is to search […]

DEAL! Business Class To Brazil From $475 Roundtrip!

It’s been a while now since I covered a deal fare.  That’s due to the pandemic.  Even when some folks started traveling, I just didn’t have the wanderlust back yet.  While I’m still getting my groove back our family has started thinking about travel again in a meaningful way.  So, when I woke up this morning to a travel deal, it actually felt right to write about it.  I was excited, energized in a way I haven’t been for a while.  But, enough about me, let’s talk about the deal! […]

DEAL: Save On Alaska Airlines Gift Cards From Costco

Discounted gift cards represent one of the best ways to take advantage of travel deals during the pandemic.  With flexible change policies on virtually every airline, a gift card gives you even more ability to get the best deal. Thanks to Denny for sending along this deal which should be appealing to folks who live out west and can enjoy the strength of Alaska Airlines’ network. Costco is selling $500 Alaska Airlines gift cards for $449.99.  I guess that’s a $50.01 discount, but hopefully you’ll forgive me for the slight […]

DEAL: Costco Travel Is Having A Pretty Solid Travel Sale-Including A Big Discount For Hawaii

I’m a pretty big Costco fan, but I’ve only used their travel division to book a few cruises over the years.  Still, I’ve heard good things about the deals.  An e-mail popped up this morning about some travel deals Costco had.  I’ve got a million things going on but I was in the mood for a bit of research, so I took a few minutes out of my morning to dig into one of these deals.  Since I’ve still never been to Hawaii and I love a good Ritz-Carlton, I […]

WHOA: A Week In A Maldives Overwater Villa For $2,000 (Refundable)

There have been some insane travel deals the past few months, but most of them have been for travel now (or in the near future). Now, my buddy Richard Kerr has found an incredible deal on TravelZoo. For $2,000 you get 7 nights in an overwater villa, including all taxes and fees. It also seems to have pretty generous refund rules. The resort appears to be called You and Me. And, it has a pretty awesome looking underwater restaurant (which you get to dine at once for free). Two things […]

Wow! Air Canada Offering 50% Rebate On Award Flights

Air Canada has definitely been making some noise lately.  We should expect to hear announcements soon about their new loyalty program, but they’re still busy ahead of releasing those details.  Just a few weeks ago they had a really incredible mileage sale.  I had a package of miles sitting in my shopping cart when they went on sale but ultimately wasn’t able to get the purchase confirmed.  Still, it was an incredibly popular deal that some folks were able to score.  Now, they’re back with what may end up being […]

Las Vegas Casino Giving Away Almost 2,000 Free Airline Tickets to Vegas

Leaving Las Vegas

Las Vegas has been one of the hardest hit cities in the United States during the COVID-19 crisis. So much of the economy depends on travel and tourism.  With unemployment rates in the state reaching 30%, folks in Las Vegas can use a break. One casino owner is helping Vegas make another comeback while also helping people score a cheap vacation. The D Casino, located on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas, gave away 1,000 free one-way airline tickets yesterday.  The giveaway was so popular that Derek Stevens, the owner […]
