I have received a bunch of emails today offering Cyber Monday deals for airfare. I am personally disappointed with the selection of Black Friday / Cyber Monday travel deals this year as I believe last year was much much better. However, it is absolutely still worth it to check them out and see if any of the deals listed below will save you money. I checked out a few flights and saw some good finds, Most offers are for TODAY ONLY and will not last long.
Keep in mind that if you are unsure of your travel plans, many airlines allow you to cancel by midnight the following day (Delta, US Airways, United). American Airline allows you to put a flight on hold for 24 hours. The low cost carriers, such as Southwest, JetBlue, AirTran, Frontier allow you to cancel within 24 hours from the time of purchase. If you already have a flight on Southwest, AirTran, or JetBlue, this is a good time to re-check the existing price, and if the fare went down you are eligible for a credit for the difference.
