“Hacking” A Newark To Tel Aviv Nonstop For $694.32 Round-Trip If You Can Fly By Tomorrow…

Monday, January 27th, 2014

-Earn 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

————————————————————————————————–

You can go to Expedia and click on “Multi-Destination.”

Search for a flight from Newark to Tel Aviv on 01/28 for example.
In the next segment search for a flight from Tel Aviv to Houston/IAH on 02/05 for example.

This is the first search result:

The outbound flight is a regular nonstop from Newark to Tel Aviv.

The return flight is from Tel Aviv to Houston.  Click on “show flight details” and you’ll notice that it connects in Newark.  By law all checked baggage coming in on flights from abroad must be claimed at baggage claim and brought past customs officials before you can recheck them.

You can just take the tags off your bag in Newark and nobody is going to force you to fly to Houston.

This is called hidden city ticketing, and of course the airlines don’t love that.  And airline reps will probably lie to you and say that your bags will go straight to Houston even though they will not.  They will be tagged to Houston, but everyone has to pick them up in Newark.

They can decide not to give miles for your trip, though only USAirways has actually followed through with that threat.  I don’t suggest anyone do this every month, but tons of people save money by buying tickets with hidden city ticketing every day without problems.

You can only depart tonight or tomorrow, 01/27 or 01/28 for this $694 fare!
Valid return dates include 02/03, 02/04, 02/05, 02/06, 02/11, 02/12, 02/13, 02/19.

You can read this post for more on how to utilize hidden city ticketing.

Step 3: After selecting the flights enter and apply your E-Coupon number to get the 10% off (If you copy/paste be sure there no extra spaces at the beginning or end!)

February flights will be a little higher, for example 02/16-03/02 was $695 after the code.

Several people who tried faxing or calling Delta but weren’t able to complete their glitch tickets before their date of travel have had a really great outcome.

Delta has been allowing them to book travel anytime in 2014 as long as they go to the same place and stay for the same length of time as originally booked.  No name changes are allowed.

When someone first posted about this on DDF I thought it might be a one-off, but several others have emailed me as well.  Delta is really going above and beyond with this glitch.

If you haven’t yet been accommodated you should definitely give Delta a call.

Have you had a similar story? Let’s hear about in the comments!

Delta Aftermath Part 1: Delta Honoring All Unconfirmed Tickets!

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

Update 2: Several commenters are reporting that faxes are no longer needed!  All Delta supervisors should now have access to everyone’s Priceline itineraries and are able to rebook them.  You should be able to call now and confirm your reservations, let us know how it goes!

Update: Delta is honoring the tickets for everyone who made a priceline reservation by 1pm during the glitch last Thursday and never got a confirmation!
-Just call Priceline to get a copy of your priceline contract at 203-299-8000.  You can also login to your Priceline account, click on “My Trips,” and then wait a minute for a chat button to popup in the bottom right of your browser.
-Then fax it to Delta at 801-575-3000 and/or 888-286-3163 (their fax line is very busy, so keep trying if it doesn’t go through; services like faxzero.com allow you to send faxes for free online) and make it attention to SLC Reservation Customer Experience Supervisor. Make sure your contact details are there as well as commenters and DDF members are already getting callbacks from their fax to confirm their tickets.
-There’s a long backlog so just be patient and wait for the callback!

Originally posted 12/28:

While thousands of people successfully booked insanely cheap tickets thanks to the Delta glitch on Thursday, some people got emails that their tickets were never confirmed.

In those cases you should contact Delta directly to work to get it confirmed.  Try to get to a Delta supervisor in the Salt Lake City call center where several people have been able to get their tickets honored.

You should be sure to check your SPAM folder as many confirmation emails wound up there.

-DDF member Proisrael, who first posted the deal on the DansDeals Forums, got such a cancellation email from Orbitz. While Orbitz offered no help he was able to eventually find a Delta agent to help him and get his 7 tickets reinstated. He found a Delta manager, explained that Delta had made the press release that they were honoring the tickets, and the agent agreed to finalize the booking.

-DDF member emek booked 3 tickets from JFK to Los Angeles for $45 each on Orbitz. He also never received the eticket numbers and got the Orbitz cancellation email. He even filed a DoT complaint.
He called Delta tonight and while they resisted as the tickets were never confirmed the agent did eventually accept a copy of the original Orbitz confirmation and honored the $45 fare.

-The Boston Herald also shares a story where a DansDeals Forum member booked through Orbitz and had a similar problem. In that story the paper helped the member get Delta to honor the tickets as well.

-Some commenters on the original deal have also had success getting Delta to honor the tickets even after an Orbitz cancellation email.

Bottom line: HUCA and be persistent!  Share your success or failure stories in the comments.

-Philadelphia to/from Dallas nonstop for $93.80 round-trip on USAirways (2,605 miles)
This can be a useful flight if you’re gunning for what’s possibly a lifetime of Star Alliance Gold status via Aegean.  You only need to earn 19,000 miles in a year to attain that.
While cheap United fares only earn 0.5 miles when credited to Aegean, cheap USAirways fares earn full credit. USAirways leaves the Star Alliance on 03/30 though, so there’s not much time left to take a mileage run to earn Aegean Gold via USAirways flights.

Delta Aftermath Part 2: Where Are You Going?

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

Did you get in on the Delta fun this past Thursday and get confirmed tickets?

I thought it might be fun for people to share what their loot was:
-Where are you flying to and from?
-Are you flying coach or business/first class?
-How many people are traveling?
-What did you pay?
-When are you going?
You can even include where you plan on staying or ask for suggestions on where to stay.  When there was free airfare to the Bahamas with free hotel accommodation there were even minyanim that were organized there :D

Post a comment and let’s hear about your plans!

I’d love to read trip reports from folks after their trips as well.  If you would like to share your experience post it in this DDF thread when you get back!

Rules Of The Deal

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Reposing this article that I wrote a month ago after the United glitch. Since then it seems that even the Wall Street Journal has started monitoring my Twitter feed (1:00-1:05 in the video) :

wsj

 

Price mistakes happen a few times a year. Some of my favorites that I’ve blogged about besides for yesterday’s Detla bonanza:
-Last month there were $127 tickets to Milan and $287 tickets to Israel on United.
-My first time in Hawaii was with airfare and hotel for $87 with tax.
-I and thousands of others scored Airfare and 5 star accommodations at hotels like the Bellagio with Cirque tickets in Las Vegas all for free thanks to Expedia.
-Tons of people were able to get free airfare and hotels in the Bahamas.
-My whole family has lifetime free stays in suites at Fairmont hotels.
-There have been $250 tickets to anywhere in Europe.
-$336 El Al tickets to Israel for Pesach
-Dirt cheap tickets to anywhere when booked via LAN.
-$460 USAirways tickets to Israel from NYC.
-$347 USAirways tickets to Israel from other US cities.
-$550 nonstop Delta tickets from JFK to Israel along with $372 Delta tickets from Los Angeles to Israel and $498 Delta tickets from Newark to Israel.
-$376 Alitalia tickets to Israel.
-Lucky people had their WalMart price mistake orders honored
-HP even gave out $200 coupons to people who got in a price mistake…perhaps they didn’t realize the coupon was able to be used multiple times though.

Of course the fine line between price mistake and deal is often blurred.
In the past I stocked up on dozens of cases of free diapers and wipes thanks to Amazon. My wife and I have stayed at the Encore and Wynn just for having an American Express Platinum card. We flew to Aruba and Boston last year for free thanks to Jetblue’s voucher generosity in May as well as in September again. I racked up countless free Hyatt nights and hundreds of thousands of United miles with promotions like this one.
Years of churning dollar coins minted me hundreds of thousands of miles as well. Even some simple soda cups earned me tens of thousands of dollars of free United flight vouchers.
None of those were mistakes, it’s not always easy to tell what’s a mistake and what’s just an incredible deal.

Rules Of The Deal:

1. Don’t call.
Don’t talk to the airline or companies offering a deal while the deal is live. You can always ask questions once the deal is gone.

2. Don’t hesitate.
These deals never last long, you’ve got to act fast.
Most online booking agencies have generous cancellation policies, so book first and then decide later.

With some really crazy deals like 4 mile island some DDFers flew in first class around the world for just 4 miles because they booked to travel immediately.

3. Don’t forget your infant!
A common theme that I’ve seen with price mistakes is that people forget their infant children. You need to pay 10% of the normal fare for the privilege of holding your child on international tickets. Wouldn’t you be better off spending the few extra dollars for them to have their own seat?

4. Follow @DansDeals on Twitter.
I’ve gotten tons of complains from my email subscribers about missing the deal.  Unfortunately the emails just go out once a day.  If you want real time alerts you’ll want to follow @DansDeals on twitter and have Twitter send you a text message whenever a new deal is posted.  Once you’re signed up you never have to go onto Twitter again if you don’t want to.

5. Join DDF
The United deal last month was posted by Drago on the DansDeals Forums wayyy before it was posted on the main DansDeals site as I was offline for shabbos while Israel based DDF members got a big jump start.

6. Create your own free trip!
Don’t want to wait around for the next great deal to arrive?  The credit card companies are happy to fly you for free anywhere in the world, even in business or first class.  I’ve flown around the world countless times in private first class suites with miles earned from opening credit cards.  You can read some of those trip reports here.  I’ve banked 8 figures of miles and points by doing this stuff over the years and that means I don’t have to worry about being under pressure to book during a quick glitch, I travel free on my own terms.  And I still have a top-notch 800+ FICO score.

This page includes links for tons of great credit cards that will have you flying for free in no time!

There’s more information about applying for cards in this DDF FAQ page also with many credit card deals and links to dozens of others useful threads in this DDF credit card starting point thread.

You can also learn more about my favorite hobby by clicking on the credit card posts tab and the mileage posts tab.

Posts like this one on opening and closing cards and this one on getting business cards to improve your credit score are helpful as well.

Once you have the miles you can read about Getting To Israel Using Starwood Starpoints and Getting To Israel Using Miles. It can be done starting at just 20K round-trip!

And now Chase offers free primary car rental insurance, even in Israel!

Or stay tuned for a DansDeals Seminar near you where I teach the tricks of the trade in person and answer any questions you might have. I’ve done 6 of them so far and they’re a blast!

Rent A Private Jet From Philadelphia To Toronto Tonight For $536

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

JetSuite offers last-minute deals to rent out a private jet on the cheap.

For example among other deals, you can rent a jet and fly 6 people (plus an infant) one-way from Philadelphia to Toronto tonight for $536 with tax.  The $536 price is the same no matter if you fly solo or with 6 people.

You would have to leave between 7:30-8:15pm.

With 6 people that’s $89 per person to fly on a private jet. WiFi and refreshments and free.

The reason it’s so cheap is that they need to ferry the planes anyway for customers paying the big bucks so they offer deals that change daily based on where they need to ferry the planes.

They’ve run a simalar deal from NYC to Cleveland a few times and I know some guys who chartered it, stayed in the Sheraton hotel at the Cleveland airport for 4,000 Starpoints, and flew back to LGA the next morning for 4,500 BA Avios.

More Info On Recent Price Mistakes

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Related post: Rules Of The Deal
——————————————————-
1. People have already starting flying on the $100-$400 United glitch tickets booked via Widerøe last week.
In fact there is a DDF’er en-route now on United 84 from Newark to Tel Aviv on a $300 ticket. Poor sap next to him paid $1,400.
So yes, these are being honored.

2. It’s actually hard to call it a glitch.
Widerøe, a Norwegian airline, has admitted that their own website CEO leaked the info online and intended for people to book the deal on their site so that they would make commissions on the sales.

3. Plenty of reports of people successfully crediting the miles for their USAirways glitch Israel flights to Aegean and United as I suggested they should. There were the $300-$500 tickets to Israel that I posted about in late August from NYC and from other cities.

4. Several people were able to have USAirways drop off the NYC-PHL leg of their flights and just drive to Philadelphia to pickup their flights due to bad weather in the forecast which may have caused them to miss their connection in Philadelphia.. The trick is to keep calling until you get a nice rep if the flight isn’t delayed yet but the weather forecast look poor.

5. Some people have reported being hassled by USAirways agents after clearing customs to check their bags to Toronto. Simple solution: Tear off the bag tag when you take your bag off the carousel before clearing customs and save yourself from being hassled.
You’re under no obligation to continue onto Toronto or to recheck your bags.

6. If I get 1 more email from someone telling me that they called USAirways and that their bags will go directly to Toronto without stopping in Philadelphia I may scream. I’ve literally gotten dozens of these.
Nothing more than misinformation from uneducated agents or simply scare tactics.  Even though your bag is tagged for Toronto you need to claim it in Philadelphia and walk it past customs.

7. Over the past 16 months we’ve seen glitches for Israel from every airline that flies between the US and Israel: Delta, El Al, United, and USAirways.
Perhaps if they would stop playing games with scammy fuel surcharges this wouldn’t happen as often…or perhaps it’s all for the best.

Rent A Private Jet From NYC To Cleveland For $536

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

JetSuite offers last-minute deals to rent out a private jet on the cheap.

For example among other deals, you can rent a jet and fly 6 people (plus an infant) one-way from NYC/Teterboro tomorrow to Cleveland for $536 with tax.  The $536 price is the same no matter if you fly solo or with 6 people.

With 6 people that’s $89 per person to fly on a private jet.

The reason it’s so cheap is that they need to ferry the planes anyway for customers paying the big bucks so they offer deals that change daily based on where they need to ferry the planes.

They had this same deal a few weeks ago and some DDF guys booked it, had dinner in Cleveland, stayed in the Sheraton hotel at the Cleveland airport for 4,000 Starpoints, and flew back to LGA the next morning for 4,500 BA Avios.

WiFi and refreshments and free.

So, who’s in :D

Turkish: NYC To Tel Aviv For $685.92 Round-Trip

Alitalia: Tel Aviv To NYC For $704.62 Round-Trip

-United nonstop to Tel Aviv from NYC for $838.

-Earn 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
————————————————————————————————–

-Bookable on Priceline with free cancellations until 11:30pm ET the day after you book.

Note that Turkish fares to Israel can’t reliably be researched on ITA or booked on Orbitz. If you don’t want Turkish flights included in an ITA search you can use advanced routing code: ~TK+

-Turkish flights originating JFK-TLV-JFK and stopping in Istanbul for an hour or 2 are $685.

Flights are via Istanbul with a total travel time of 12-15 hours with a 1 or 2 hour stopover.  Turkish is a perfectly safe airline and thousands of religious Jews have taken their flights without issues.  They are also a very good airline that still gives 2 free bags and they have an awesome Star Alliance lounge in Istanbul. Their Premium Economy comfort class product has rave reviews, so if you have the chance to upgrade to that at the gate on the cheap you should definitely go for it.

Note that these deeply discounted Turkish fares do not earn miles on partner airlines. But they do earn miles in Turkish’s own Star Alliance program.

Valid outbound JFK-TLV dates:
All dates between 01/25-03/10.

Valid return TLV-JFK dates:
All dates between 01/25-03/31.

NYC-Milan With 2 Stops For $257 Round-Trip With Tax

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Update: You can now book from the Wideroe home page and switch the language to English and the currency to USD in the top-right.  From there you can search for NYC to MIL and find valid dates into May.
For example 05/07-05/14, 05/11-05/18, or 05/14-05/21 are just $258.29
The home page link above in USD and the link below in NOK can give very different fares, so be sure to check both.
Also be sure to try searching from LGA, JFK, and NYC separately as the fares can also be very different.

———————————————

Wideroe still has cheap tickets bookable to Milan

Not nearly as awesome as yesterday’s $100 nonstop fares from Newark to Milan. But for those who sloozed yesterday you can go from LaGuardia to Milan with 2 stops for about $250.  The flights are on Air Canada and Lufthansa.

The total journey will take at least 14 hours depending on the day with a couple hours layover in either Toronto or Montreal and Frankfurt or Munich.

Just search departing from LGA going to MIL.  MIL is the code for either Milan Linate (LIN) or Milan Malpensa (MXP).

-Earn 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

Note that Turkish fares to Israel can’t reliably be researched on ITA or booked on Orbitz. If you don’t want Turkish flights included in an ITA search you can use advanced routing code: ~TK+

———————————————-

Flights originating JFK-TLV-JFK are about $685.

Flights originating TLV-JFK-TLV are about $850.

Flights are via Istanbul with a total travel time of 12-15 hours.  Turkish is a perfectly safe airline and thousands of religious Jews have taken their flights without issues.  They are also a very good airline that still gives 2 free bags and they have an awesome Star Alliance lounge in Istanbul. Their Premium Economy comfort class product has rave reviews, so if you have the chance to upgrade to that at the gate on the cheap you should definitely go for it.

Note that these deeply discounted Turkish fares do not earn miles on partner airlines. But they do earn miles in Turkish’s own Star Alliance program.

Valid outbound JFK-TLV dates:
All dates between 01/11-03/10.

Valid return TLV-JFK dates:
All dates between 01/14-03/31.
