Black Friday Flight Deals
Black Friday is in full force offering a ton of flight deals and opportunities to purchase points at a discount.
Air Canada is offering three different promotions, so there is something for everyone. Most of them are running through Cyber Monday, Nov. 29, 2020.
If you are looking to book a flight, you can receive up to 20% off select economy, premium economy and business class base fares for travel through June 30, 2021.
Or, if you are looking to top off an award flight, you can purchase points with a 50% bonus.

Complete two offers, earn 500 bonus points, completing three offers will earn you 1,000 bonus points and going all in and completing four offers will earn you the full 5,000 bonus points.
JetBlue is offering one of their better point-purchasing promotions where you can purchase points at a 40% discount, plus a 10% bonus. With that being said, you are still purchasing points for more than what they are worth, making this only a good deal if you are looking to top off a certain award stay.
Book a flight on Lufthansa through Nov. 30, 2020 and you’ll receive $100 off your next flight for trips through Oct. 31, 2021.
Virgin Atlantic is offering one of the best promotions right now, where you can get 50% off all reward seats on the Virgin Atlantic network for flights booked through Nov. 30, 2020 for travel through Oct. 20, 2021.

They are also offering discounted fares for paid reservations, but not nearly as good as the reward redemption promotion.

If you are into travel deals, this is definitely a good time to pay attention and jump on some good Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Of course, many of the amazing deals will sell out quickly, so you’ll want to move fast. I personally will not be jumping on as many deals this year as my family has decided to not travel by airplane right now. But, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out on those New England hotels that are just a short drive away.
