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.

  1. Is there a promo code for the AA discounts, or special routes? The fare I was watching is exactly the same price as it was yesterday.

    • @Jeffrey – No there is not. I personally think some of the “Cyber Monday” specials are a hoax to get you to buy when really they are the same prices as they are every other day.

  2. @deals you’re totally right. Before I book I research obsessively beforehand and today the flights are the same exact prices they have been for weeks.

  3. This is not really related to Black Friday deals, but I received an email today from Marriott offering 10 MR pts/1$ on gift card purchases. I used the same offer last year to stock up on enough cards to pay for most of my stays this year. Nice way to triple-dip on points, since I used my Chase Sapphire card to purchase them.

  4. LAN is running some pretty good fares to South America ex- MIA, JFK, and LAX for Cyber Monday. Additional 10% off for booking at
