Have Continental Or Starwood Call You!

Why wait on hold and try to find your way around a phone tree maze when you can have companies call your phone or talk to you over the web for free?

I used the Starwood callback link extensively while traveling in Israel in order to make and change award reservations (which was especially nice because incoming calls are free on Israeli cell phones!)

It’s just too bad that more companies don’t utilize this great technology…

Hidden City Ticketing 101: Long Beach, CA To/From S. Jose, CA For $59+ One-Way; Flights Connect In JFK Or Boston!!!

Update 2: Appears to no longer be bookable! 

Update: Jetblue, like most LCC’s (low-cost carriers) does not prohibit hidden-city ticketing. I know for a fact that Airtran actually allows you to buy a hidden-city ticket and check your luggage through to the connecting city instead of the final destination. I am not sure if Jetblue will allow you to do this, but if someone tries it out please report back!

Related: Jetblue’s contract of carriage

Jetblue has gone crazy.

They have a $59+ one way fare ($80 including all taxes) to/from Long Beach, CA and S. Jose, CA.

Here’s the rub: The flight connects in your choice of JFK or Boston.

So feel free to buy a one-way ticket to/from Long Beach, CA and S. Jose, CA. and then get off in JFK or Boston for just $80!

This is not bookable on Jetblue.com!

This deal works best on Orbitz.com ($83-$84)

The cheapest site to book this on will be on Priceline.com ($80) but it doesn’t seem to always work there.

-Just click on “One-way” and do a search from LGB to SJC or SJC to LGB.

-Choose Jetblue as the carrier (Jetblue won’t always show up on Priceline)

-Buy the ticket, fly from Long Beach to JFK for example, and throw away the connecting portion from JFK to SJC!

Sample valid date: 04/01.

Caveats:

1. Obviously this will only work for the one-way from either Californian city to JFK or Boston. For the other way you’ll just have to pony-up the normal one-way fare to CA. Therefore this deal is best if you’re just looking to get from CA to JFK or BOS.

2. Checking your luggage may prove tricky. It is unknown if Jetblue will allow you to check your luggage to a connecting city.

Airfare Deals: Cheap Flights To/From Honolulu!

Earlier today USeless Airways published cheap fares to/from Hawaii and all 3 of Continental’s hubs throughout the end of their schedule.

I didn’t post it because it was a fake, they had published a great fare but they allocated exactly zero seats to the sale!

Nevertheless Continental felt the need to protect its fortress hubs and just matched all 3 of the fares. And they actually had the class to allocate seats to the sale fares!

Houston-Honolulu-$340+ RT On Continental

Cleveland-Honolulu-$353+ RT On Continental

Newark-Honolulu-$432+ RT On Continental

You can save an additional 5% instantly off these fares and get double miles by using your Continental MC and using the code: Onepass

Chicago Or Toronto To/From Tel Aviv (Or Anywhere Else In “Europe”) For Just 20,000 Starpoints!!!

20,000 Starwood Starpoints transfer into 25,000 Flying Blue (Air France and KLM’s joint loyalty program) miles.

That is all you will need to have to get to Israel or any other “European” destination in March or April!

S.B.S. previously made an excellent 8 page PDF examining every way of getting to Israel via Starpoints.

In that article he pointed ways of getting to Israel for 40,000 Starpoints or less (Via transferring Starpoints to JAL, British Airways, LAN, or Flying Blue)

Now S.B.S. points out (via fellow Clevelander “Beaubo”) that the Flying Blue program has special reduced mileage awards released every 2 months called “Web@wards.” These awards are 50% off the regular rate.

For March/April there is a Web@ward to/from Chicago or Toronto and Europe Zones 1, 2, or 3.

This is how Flying Blue defines Europe:
Europe 1: Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Netherlands, and Switzerland
Europe 2: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden
Europe 3: Albania, Algeria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Libya, Latvia, Lithuania, Morocco, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Western Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Tunisia, Ukraine, and Yugoslavia

The cost for the round-trip ticket is just 25,000 Flying Blue miles!!!

That’s right, open 2 free Starwood AMEX credit cards and you’ve got a mileage ticket to Israel!

As Flying Blue considers Israel to be part of Europe (zone 3), it qualifies as a valid origin or destination.

Even better, unlike with most carriers, you can book one way award tickets with Flying Blue, so if you want to go one-way it will be just 12,500 Flying Blue miles!

The Web@wards to/from Chicago and Toronto can only be flown with KLM via Amsterdam. Web@wards are not valid on Skyteam partners such as Continental or Delta (although nonstop travel to Israel on those carriers is allowed on the regular 40,000 Starpoints/50,000 Flying Blue miles award to Europe zone 3.)

There is also a March/April Web@ward for Los Angeles to/from London nonstop on Air France for just 12,500 miles OW/25,000 miles RT.

Taxes and fuel surcharges, which can be hefty on international carriers, are extra.

Flying Blue Wab@wards: March/April 2008

Unfortunately, you cannot search online for mileage availability on Flying Blue unless you have the required miles in your account.

The best bet for checking availability will be by calling Flying Blue at 1-800-375-8723

Coming soon: How you can check for mileage ticket availability on dozens of airlines.

This Year’s Starwood RevPAR Adjustments…

Update: Aaron notes that Starwood is letting people make reservations at the current rates as long as they get the points by the day of the actual hotel stay!

Coming soon: How to land a round-trip ticket to/from select North American cities and Israel for just 20,000 Starpoints, courtesy of S.B.S. (who else?!?)

Related: Starwood’s RevPAR Explained.

All Starpoint Redemption Options

Every year Starwood does an adjustment of hotels to make sure that they are in the correct RevPAR category. In years such as 2002 when travel and hotel rates were down, hundreds of Starwood hotels went down in their category rankings.

As the Starwood Preferred Guest program is dollar-denominated, when foreign currencies go up against the dollar, they will also rise in their RevPAR category. This fact, combined with generally high hotel occupancy rates last year mean that a number of Starwood hotels will be going up in category, although some will go down as well.

In the following complete list of Starwood properties you can see which hotels will be changing on category on 03/04 by the red dot before the hotel name.

If you are planning on staying in a Starwood hotel that is moving up in category, you should book it at the lower rate immediately. You are allowed to book a future stay at the current rate until 03/03. Starwood awards are generally fully refundable until the day before arrival.

Here are some brief category change notes:
-Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles (a nice, recently renovated hotel) is moving up from being a category 2 bargain to a category 3.
-The only Starwood property in Israel that will change category is the Sheraton City Tower in Ramat Gan, which will move from a category 3 to a category 4. The only other Starwood hotel in Israel ranked that high is the Sheraton Tel Aviv Hotel and Towers.
-In the good-news department, the most opulent hotel in the garden isle of Kauai, Hawaii, the Princeville Resort will fall from a category 6 to a category 5!

Spirit Launches New Service And $7+ OW Intro Fares From Long Island/ISP To Fort Lauderdale And Columbia, SC!!!

Update-2:30pm: Most of the $7 tickets are already sold out! 

Spirit Sale Linky

The fares actually are bookable round-trip at $7+ each way.

I tried out a RT from ISP-FLL for 05/07-05/15 and it priced out with $7 tickets both ways.

Warning: Spirit sneaks in fees ($12 for insurance and $9 for their travel club) Be sure to uncheck those boxes on the “Confirm Flights And Purchase” page!

The total for ISP-FLL including all taxes priced out at just $35 RT for me!

The Amazon Friday Sale…

Amazon offers great prices on all kinds of clearance items every Friday.

I scan through the sale looking for the best deals, but obviously I can’t find and post every great deal, so you should look through the clearance pages yourself to see the entire selection.

If you find something that interests you-it probably interests others as well, so please leave a comment!

Finally, every week (after Friday of course) there are people that email/comment telling me that the price I posted is incorrect…

The prices for items that say “Amazon friday sale” are only good on the day that they are posted, they will go up in price after Friday!

Additionally, Amazon will often sell out of a clearance item during a Friday sale, in which case you may see higher 3rd party prices for the item on the day it was posted.

Good luck, and enjoy the weekly treasure hunt!
