Marriott Q2 Promo: 1 Free Night After 2 Stays

Marriott launched their Q2 promo called Unexpected Bonus (though I think they do this each year, so I’m not sure what’s unexpected about it…)

Stay twice at any Marriott property between May 15 – July 15, and you’ll get a certificate good for a free night stay at a Category 1-5 property worldwide, good for stays through September 2nd. I seem to remember that this was only good for categories 1-4 last year (is that right?). You can earn up to 2 free nights.

New York to Honolulu, $365 round trip

I’m on vacation, but I wanted to pass along that Hawaiian Airlines is offering last minute(ish) round trip tickets from JFK to Honolulu for $365 round trip through mid-March. Other islands are about $25 more. It’s an amazing deal if you don’t mind 11 hours in coach.

(Thanks, Travelzoo)

NOW DEAD JFK – Tel Aviv, $550 on Delta

(Thanks to reader XF for the heads up….)


Delta is offering roundtrip tickets from JFK to Tel Aviv for $550 (tax included) for dates in January and February. That’s about half what they usually charge.

Not quite mileage run material, but it’s a great fare if you were looking to go to Israel.

$15 Rooms at Bally’s Las Vegas

Bally’s Las Vegas is offering rooms for $15 on select dates in November and December. South Tower Grand Suite rooms – 800+ Square Feet – are just $45.

I haven’t been to Bally’s in ages, but from the pictures it looks like they haven’t done much updating since then. Hard to argue with $15, though.

(NOW DEAD) Alitalia Deal: $320 Off All Flights (Via Japan Website)


(Yes, yes – lots of other people have already written about this today. Thanks, Flyertalk & The Points Guy where I saw this. I was out with my kids and doing crap so I wasn’t here posting. Sue me. Actually, please don’t sue me.) Now where was I?

Oh yes, if you go to Alitalia’s Japanese website (here) — use Google Chrome so you can translate the pages — and use promo code PROMOJP, you’ll get $350 off any Alitalia flight. That makes lots of intra-Europe flights free, and flights from JFK to Madrid for about $280 round trip.

Good luck!


$448 Round Trip from New York to Madrid through March with Alitalia 25% Off Promo Code (Other Good Fares Available)

Alitalia is offering a 25% off coupon for flights November 5 – March 7th when you register here. The thing is a bit screwy – the promo code is SPECIAL. It’s good for business class tickets as well – during holiday periods you’re looking at $1800 in business class to Paris, for example. You used to be able to use these Alitalia coupons on Delta flights, but not anymore, bummer.

The best deal here appears to be NYC to Madrid for $448 round trip after you use the coupon — it’s like 2008 all over again! Other notable possibilities: NYC to Istanbul for $600; Tel Aviv for $750; and Moscow for $500.

Supposedly you can get the coupon through October 26th, but with Alitalia you never know.
