By this point in the day, you should be done fighting the crowds, standing in ridiculously long lines, and trying to figure out where the heck you are going to put that new 80-inch TV.
Now that you’re home, its time to take advantage of a few Black Friday travel deals that are out there on the web. Don’t worry; you can get these deals from the comfort of your couch!
Hotels.com Mystery Coupon
For this whole week, Hotels.com is advertising up to 60% off hotel rooms. It’s tough to see the discount and whether the prices are really much lower than they were last week, but the few searches we did seemed to show fairly reasonable pricing.
In addition, they’re giving everyone a mystery coupon to apply to a hotel booking. Some of these will be good for 99% off!
The nice thing about this mystery coupon promo is that they let you see the discount before booking, and you don’t even need to pretend to book a hotel stay.
Simply enter your email address and name, check a box, and fill in a captcha. Next, you will be taken to a page with your deal. Click “Claim My Code” to see your discount percentage.
We have seen lots of 10% and 7% discounts, but it only takes a few minutes to check yours…so it’s definitely worth seeing if you get something higher. We’re hoping you get 99%!
American Airlines Bonus Miles Sale
American Airlines is running a weekend sale on buying miles by adding 20% to the bonus levels of their current sale. If you need some miles to round out an award — or if you think you can make a large purchase of miles work to your advantage — this may be the time to do it.
Here are the current bonus levels for miles purchases during the sale.
To get these bonus rates, you just need to make your miles purchase before November 27. American Airlines AAdvantage miles are purchased directly from American.
Emirates Sub-$400 to Europe
Emirates Airlines is running a very competitive economy class fare sale from the U.S. to Europe. We are seeing many fares around $400, with some even coming in slightly lower than that.
You can use Google Flights to search — the low fares are easy to spot with their calendar of dates and prices.
Some routes to look for include New York City to Milan or Newark to Athens. Other routings from Washington, D.C. were available earlier, but appear to be sold out now.
There may be other routes on sale too, so be sure to check your city if you’re looking to plan a trip. Make sure to look soon, as these fares are definitely limited and disappearing quickly.
Over the past few years, we’ve been seeing more and more online travel deals over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Many of these appear not only on Black Friday, but all the way through Cyber Monday and beyond.
You should definitely keep an eye out for more deals over the next few days. If there are any amazing travel-specific sales that you just shouldn’t miss, we will be sure to let you know.
Hopefully, we kept this short enough that you could read through it quickly after your hectic days of cooking, traveling, eating, and shopping. Now it’s time to relax!
So put on your pajamas, curl up on the couch with your laptop, and start making your dream trips come to life.
