I still can’t believe this.
Tomorrow, Saturday October 7 – Tuesday October 10.
$50 CDN round trip Detroit – Miami or Orlando.
There are flight deals and then there are just plain crazy flight deals – this is one of them!!!!!
Miami is on Frontier, Orlando is Spirit.
Check Google flights before this is gone.
This is without a doubt the best flight price I have ever seen so close to the flight date.
So I’m checking Twitter for the latest promos and I see one from Best Western which is pretty sweet – 10,000 points for a free night between November and January at any Best Western in North America.
Now I’m sure there will be limitations but get in this early and you could be getting a $300-$500 hotel room for a measly 10,000 BW points which is really only worth between $70-$100!
It’s only one night but still – this is a great promo I have never seen before with them.
With all the sadness coming out of Las Vegas today I thought I would post some nice travel news.
This coming weekend – Canadian Thanksgiving – $48 CDN ROUND TRIP TO MIAMI OR FT LAUDERDALE!!!!!!!!! out of DETROIT ON SPIRIT or Frontier
Saturday to Tuesday and other combos available.
This is insanely cheap…CHECK IT OUT!!!
Book at Spirit.com or Frontier.com
Looking to get away in the next couple months out of our area?
Ya, you may not like Spirit – I know – but c’mon these price are outrageous.
$102 CDN round trip Detroit – Myrtle Beach MANY weekends coming up.
Google Flights is amazing – I love it.
So, after I type that I check if there is anywhere farther for similar money.
MIAMI – $98 CDN round trip same weekend.
Seriously? Get some hotel points and have a really cheap vacation South coming up!
There is one example of many.
The above shows prices going up after Nov 4 weekend.
The above shows a $98 round trip flight to Miami from Detroit!!!
So I haven’t done a post in about 3 months for no reason other than wanting to take a break from this – nothing good or bad happened just wanted a break.
But I do follow the “scene” very closely and now must make big changes to my page “How do you do this?”
Things that were once mainstays in this “game” like the Amex Gold Rewards card and the Marriott Visa have had changes.
There are 2 links to Best Western cards now – and you could probably get both!
Patrick at Rewards Canada first reported that the Amex Gold Rewards Card (personal) is now charging an annual fee of $150 – indeed this is true…and sad.
He also reported the Chase Marriott Visa is now over.done.finished. never coming back??? You know something will come back – maybe with Amex where we can refer? Let’s hope so.
The thing is…there are always options.
Sure, the Amex Gold Rewards (personal) has a $150 charge – just get the Business version!
It’s free first year and gives you a 40,000 point bonus…you just need a way to spend $5000 in 3 months!
That would give you a total of 45,000 points for free! (maybe google Canadian manufactured spend to help you spend that $5000)
Chase Marriot 50,000 point bonus gone?
Really? Why not pair up with a friend or spouse and get the Amex Personal SPG card.
Get the card and spend $1500 – 25,000 SPG points for you – refer to friend/spouse 10,000 SPG points for you – friend/spouse also gets 25,000 SPG points.
Between you that is 60,000 SPG points ($120+$120 annual fee)
Well…what does that $240 get you two?
60,000 SPG points is EASILY WORTH $2000 in hotel stays – probably more when you end up doing it.
I have been doing posts for years on the Amex SPG card – always been the best (fee) card out there for travel.
I’ll start posting great airfare prices soon!
As reported by Rewards Canada, this gravy train has ended.
Well, I can’t beat my last post on $50ish flights – that was an amazing sale that we probably haven’t heard the last of.
But if you’ve ever wanted to fly somewhere (in the US from our area) late August is definitely a time to try.
You know late August…many sports are done, summer activities are coming to an end, you may be looking for something new to try before school is back in.
I really can’t get over (if you have seen my last few posts) how cheap it is to fly at this time.
Cleveland can be cheaper than Detroit by a few bucks to fly out ot of so keep that in mind.
Again, most of these flights are Spirit but c’mon these prices are unreal.
I’m looking at a Google Flight map right now and here is what I’m seeing.
These are CDN round trip prices!!!!!(last week of August/3-5 day trips)
Some flights on Frontier…
LA – $206
Las Vegas $157
New Orleans $110
Orlando $136 (pretty much whole state of Florida under $200)
Myrtle Beach $118
I’m seeing Detroit prices more to significantly more depending on city.
A few places under $200 from Detroit – Boston/Philly/Myrtle/Orlando/New Orleans.
There you have some examples anyway – might be worth a try for some of you?
Well, late August has some great flight deals – we know that from my last few posts.
But Spirit has this sale which is insane. Ya, I know “Spirit Air??? C’mon”
If you can put up with them for an hour or two and perhaps drive yourself 2 hours past Detroit – to Cleveland – you will find some great flight prices..
The short list has Myrtle Beach, Boston and New Orleans to name a few.
I mean if you are looking for a few days trip in the middle of summer – here you go – check their website for more.
This example is Cleveland – Myrtle Beach mid to late July for just over $50 US ROUND TRIP!
Check it out. There are many more examples!
Why not? Looking for somewhere to go last week of August? Well we have posted a few deals the last couple of weeks.
Today’s post is Detroit – Ft. Lauderdale from Tuesday August 29 – Saturday Sept. 2.
You get to FLL Tuesday morning as well so you get that day as well!
Come back Saturday morning.
It’s on Spirit – check Google Flights for more. ($120 US.)
Nice deal – $70 US each way – Spirit Airlines (I hear you cheering lol)
Why not? Check out the “Big Easy”
Here is the screenshot from Google flights – check it out yourself.
You can also leave Sunday for that price for 1 extra day.
