Attention Thrifty Traveler Premium members:

You’ve likely already received these deals. If not, log into your Premium deals hub to see every recent alert we've sent.

Flight prices can seem out of control and even finding ways to use your points and miles can be a challenge. But there are still amazing deals out there if you know where to look – just ask our Thrifty Traveler Premium members.

In the last week alone, we've sent our subscribers nearly two dozen amazing flight deals. That includes a unicorn alert for business class flights to New Zealand, a trove of roundtrip fares to Europe as low as $318 roundtrip, and American Airlines business class availability to Europe this summer!

And that's just a small taste of the cheap flights and fare deals we've found. We've got a team of eight flight deal experts scouring the globe for the best flight deals every day for our Thrifty Traveler Premium members – departing from more than 200 U.S. airports. To give you an idea of just how good the deals can get even as you're seeing sky-high prices on your own searches, we've narrowed it down to the best three deals of the week.

So, without further ado…

Like what you see? Sign up for Thrifty Traveler Premium ASAP! 


Unicorn Alert: JFK to New Zealand in Qantas Biz Class

Unicorn alerts are the rarest, most time-sensitive, and most alluring flight deals that we send. This one was a no-brainer.

This incredibly long Qantas route from New York City (JFK) to Auckland (AKL) is practically impossible to book using points and miles … until this week.

Get ultra-rare deals like this with Thrifty Traveler Premium!

As soon as we found this rare award space, we sent the deal to our subscribers inboxes, as well as a text alert to hurry our subscribers to Qantas's website to book. Now, it's all gone.

It was a memorable deal that will hopefully connect our east coast travelers to the beautiful New Zealand islands for a trip later this year. 


Europe Flights from $318 RT

When it comes to Europe flights, it's not unusual to see fares in the $800s or $900s. But airlines like Scandinavian (SAS) are doing their best to change that. 

A few times a year, SAS launches a sale on its flights to Europe. This past week, we found some fares that looked like this.

American Biz Class to Europe this Summer

American Airlines business class can get a little pricey – or impossible to book with miles. But sometimes, those comfortable-looking seats can be available for cheap when you use points and miles. 

This week was one of those times, offering some of American's nonstop routes to Europe … from just 45,000 points each way!


American Airlines


And better yet, the best availability on these routes included August! That means you could make your summer trip to Europe in some serious style. 


American Airlines business class


We almost never see cheap fares like these in the front cabins on these routes. We hope our members were able to plan the trip of a lifetime using these fares!


Bottom Line

Travelers nationwide may be writing off trips when all they see is high airfare and yet here we are: Proving that cheap flights and amazing deals to use your points and miles are still out there.

It's been another amazing week for Thrifty Traveler Premium members – especially the ones who booked a unicorn alert for business class flights to New Zealand, a trove of roundtrip fares to Europe from just $318 roundtrip, and American Airlines business class availability to Europe this summer!

  • You seem to have lots of good deals however we live in Houston, TX and it seems the low fares rarely originate from Houston, although Bush is an international airport!

  • Your occasional Iberia posts frustrate me. NEVER do I see the point avails that you reference even when I am checking within minutes of getting your Email alerts. This time, I searched the DFW-MAD route via AA as you instructed. I found one date with a 57.5K point 1 way Biz seat in March and a few in Feb and Jan. Nothing in April, May or June and no 34K avail. Checked BOS-MAD and MIA-MAD, they won’t even show the Iberia option and can’t toggle to one way. Seems like clickbait.

  • Does your Thrift Premium service ever include a mix of miles and cash or even gas only for flights from USA to say, Milan? I don’t have tons of points right now and am considering joining this fall.
