Quick Deal: Take 10% Off Your Next Virgin America Flight!

Virgin America is running their “Travel Brilliantly” promotion and they are giving away 10% off promo codes to users who register! It took all of 10 seconds to fill in my information at the promotional page here (scroll down a little bit to see the text fields) and a 10% off code was sent to my inbox. It’s just about the easiest way to take 10% off a flight.


Here are the restrictions with the 10% off codes.

  • Must purchase ticket by September 1st
  • Travel Dates must be from September 3rd to February 11, 2015
  • Flights on Sunday are excluded
  • There is an unfortunate amount of blackout dates, mostly around the holidays. 10/10, 10/13, 11/7, 11/10, 11/26 – 12/1, 12/19 – 12/31, 1/1- 1/4, 1/16, 1/19

Even with the restrictions, this could still be a good opportunity to save 10% on a flight you may need to take anyway!

Quick Deal: How To Get 15% Off EVERY Southwest Flight!

UPDATE: Deal is Dead per commenter Yana. TwoSmiles seems to have pulled Southwest gift cards off the site.

Earlier this week I posted two deals on how to save 20% on Frontier Airlines flights (now expired) & 20% on JetBlue flights (still ongoing) but there were restrictions around the dates you could travel.  Well, I just saw a post from Just Another Points Traveler that you can now take 15% off Southwest Flights without any travel restrictions!

The way this deal works is you are buying Southwest Gift Cards at 15% off through gift card site Two Smiles when you use promo code FIREWORKS15 at checkout. Southwest Gift Cards have NO expiration date or inactivity fees so you can use them for any flight in the future!  The only restriction on this deal is you must purchase the gift cards via the Two Smiles website by tomorrow night, 7/7/14. 

15% Off All Gift Cards Above Including Southwest Airlines!

15% Off All Gift Cards Above Including Southwest Airlines!

If you have any upcoming travel you need to book on Southwest or you know within the next year or so you will be flying Southwest (remember they fly international now), I recommend purchasing the gift cards now. It is rare to find this large a discount on Southwest flights so unless you are using Southwest points, this is the next best deal to take 15% off ALL Southwest flights.


Quick Deal: Take 20% Off Your Next JetBlue or Frontier Flight

I stumbled across two offers that for whatever reason haven’t gained much traction in the points & miles blogosphere that could allow you to take 20% off your next JetBlue or Frontier flight! While I’ve highlighted several Frontier promotion codes in the past, I’ve never seen a JetBlue discount code this high at 20%!

1) Frontier 20% Promotion – To celebrate their 20th birthday, Frontier is offering 20% off all domestic flights between July 12th and December 12th (with blackout dates around but not on Thanksgiving unfortunately) using promo code RGIFT2U. The downside is all travel must be booked by July 4th. Additionally, you must book your flights on FlyFrontier.com and enter the promo code in the approriate field.

Enter Code RGIFT2U Like Above

Enter Code RGIFT2U Like Above

I think we will be taking advantage of this offer as Andrea & her friends are looking to go to Portland for a long weekend in September and the return one way flight is pricing crazy at $260+ currently. Using this promo code knocked the price down to $218 which is more reasonable.

2) JetBlue 20% Promotion – Utilizing their partnership with Dunkin’ Donuts, you will receive 20% off a JetBlue flight when you purchase specially marked 16oz bags of coffee at participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations.  A 16oz bag of coffee goes for $10 at Dunkin’ so it probably makes sense to buy a bag of coffee, even if you don’t want the coffee at all just for the coupon code (price out your flights beforehand to make sure) since the code will most likely save you greater then $10. [PSA announcement – Please donate the coffee if you are just buying it for the code.]

Unfortunately the travel window is much smaller and comes with some restrictions:

  • Book now through September 1, 2014
  • Travel between Sept. 8 and Oct. 30, 2014
  • Offer blacked out between Oct. 10 and Oct. 14, 2014
  • Valid for roundtrip airfare only
  • Book only at jetblue.com/promo

I don’t have any plans to make this JetBlue deal work for me but if I had some fall travel still to book, I would definitely look at JetBlue now.
