Cyber Monday Airfare and Hotel Deals

Cyber Monday is the Black Friday of online shopping. Many airlines and hotels are participating with discounted airfare and hotel stays if you book today. Some of the deals are spectacular!

  • Los Angeles to Lima for $684 roundtrip on LAN (and earns 8,300 American Airlines miles)
  • Los Angeles to Buenos Aires for $910 roundtrip on LAN (and earns 12,200 American Airlines miles) during the South American summer
  • 15% off Frontier flights
  • San Diego to Honolulu for $159 each way on Alaska
  • A 2,013-point rebate on JetBlue awards
  • 30% off Marriott hotel stays
  • 10% off Austrian Airlines flights
  • many more deals

If cash fares are low enough, or you like to use your miles for international premium cabin travel, you are better off paying cash for economy tickets and earning miles on the flights.

Even better, you can buy these discounted-cash tickets with credit card points and keep all your cash in your pocket. The airline will still see the ticket as a cash ticket and award you miles, and you’ll save your money. Win-win!

My favorite card that earns flexible points that can be used for any airline ticket with no blackouts is the Barclaycard Arrival(TM) World MasterCard® – Earn 2x on All Purchases with 40,000 miles after spending $1k in the first three months and no annual fee for the first year. Just meeting the card’s minimum spending requirement gives you over $460 worth of miles that can be used on any airline, any flight, any time or on any hotel stay with no blackouts.
