If you ever wanted to go from Texas to Boston in the fall seriously today is your lucky day. Forget using airline miles, just buy these crazy low fares (or use roughly 10,000 point via your Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard®) and go. I posted earlier today about JetBlue having $108 fares from Houston, Austin, and Dallas to/from Boston. I think JetBlue is pretty great, but if you are a United gal like I am, then having United match the price out of Houston might be even more exciting. Plus United operates out of IAH instead of Hobby, so that can make it easier for some.
Anyway, for $106.50 you can go round trip from Houston to Boston and back on United this fall and earn at least 3,195 MileagePlus miles in the process. Dates are limited and likely match the Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday pattern of most of the cheap JetBlue flights. I’ve seen (and flown) some very good fares from Houston – Boston, but I think this one might be the best. If you wanted to turn it into a “vacation run” I saw some options from around $111 – $118 that route through Dulles or O’Hare for additional miles – coming out at about 3 cents per mile.
I won’t be shocked if American or others matched on some of these routes, but for now United matching out of Houston is all I have seen.
Thanks to theBOSman for this find!
