Using AMEX points:

These fares are not on sale with AA miles, but you can pay for the ticket with “hybrid points” if you have AMEX or Chase points and a Business Platinum or Sapphire Reserve card.

If you have The Enhanced Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN you can get a 50% rebate on the airline of your choice

The 50% rebate will go back into your account the day after redeeming points.

You can login to your account and redeem AMEX points for travel here.

A $74.05 ticket would cost 7,405 points and you would get a 50% rebate making the effective cost just 3,702 points, a value of 2 cents per point. That includes all taxes and you still earn miles for flying!












Using Chase points:

If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card you can redeem points for 1.5 cents each towards travel. The card comes with 100,000 signup points and $600 in travel spending in your first cardmembership year!

A $74.05 ticket would cost 4,936 Chase points. That includes all taxes and you still earn miles for flying!

Zika Virus??

Meir Naamat

If you have a sapphire preferred will those points work? What about an Amex business platinum delta sky miles card?


Yeah, where’s your whole Zika disclaimer?
Is that only Florida?


If it gets cold at night there that should kill all of dem Zika untill the new baby’s hatch in the summer.


Thank you!!

Just booked 1/15 to 1/22,

And I sow on Priceline Fairmont mayakoba for $185+40 a night so I booked that 2
Thanks for my vacation… Will have you in mind


@Cocerned: Zika shmika


there are 3 kosher restaurants in isla not one
in the chabad house there is a falafel place, upstair is a meat one and aroubf the corner is maya cafe which has a dairy menu


Please edit the Wiki here with that informations:


@Chaim: That “cold at night” doesn’t kill the Zika. Can’t you even Google it before you make such assumptions?! The consensus of experts in that field is that they survive the winter and zika is still there. So why is only Florida zoche to those disclaimers, Dan??


Dan, can you clarify? Three kosher restaurants on Isla? I know the milchig Isla Cafe. Some have mentioned a fleishik place but I have never seen confirmation. Do you have verified info?
(Planning to go to Isla tomorrow!)


Commenter above said there are also 2 restaurants in the Chabad house there.
Let us know tomorrow what the scoop is 🙂


@Dan: Ok, Dan, will do. Thanks.


Where are the concerns for Zika now??

Rocking dan

so how many jet blue points would you need?

Looks like United is matching this from Newark for most dates:,nearby-CUN/2017-01-21/2017-01-28
Weird – prices show up cheaper when you search including JFK and EWR

Adam Chill

Hey Dan,

There seems to be 2 Chabads in Playa del Carmen both with catering. One is Rabbi Goldberg and the other is Rabbi Brod. Do you know whose food is better and more plentiful? Thanks in advance.

@Anonymous: Do you own research. Take responsibility for your health. Zika is a concern in Cancun, per the CDC site:


First time trying to use DansDeals. I am not understanding on how to book the flight at the rate that is being advertised. it says that it is bookable on priceline, but when I try, the advertised rates do not come up for the allowed dates


Dates can sell out.
Search one-way and post a comment of which dates didn’t work for you.


Yeah it seems like the ticket prices for this trip aren’t the same as the ones being advertised anymore
