Deal Blitz Alert: Last Minute 4th of July Weekend Award Travel

by mccownJuly 2, 2013

Traveling for the long weekend? Why not join your fellow Americans and take a trip away from wherever “here” is for you.

A few cheap last minute ideas:

  1. Freeport, Bahamas-FPO
    Dates: July 4th to July 8.
    From Miami-MIA for 9k AMEX Points/Avios per passenger by converting your American Express Membership Rewards Points –> British Airways Avios.

  2. Bermuda-BDA

  3. Nashville-BNA

  4. Buenos Aires, Argentina-EZE
    Dates: July 4th to July 7th
    From Atlanta-ATL using 77.5k Delta SkyMiles/AMEX Membership Rewards Points per passenger. I wouldn’t normally recommend redeeming your Delta SkyMiles at anything other than the “low level” (60k SkyMiles in this case) but I consider it worth it to pay an extra 17.5k SkyMiles if the dates work well for you. You’d have 3 full days in Argentina with direct, overnight flights–so no daylight wasted on an airplane. Not the best return ever but decent:

BOTTOM LINE: This is just a sampling of some of the last minute flights out there. Report back if you’ve found others!
