Expiring Deals include British Airways 4500 Avios Awards, AMEX's Jet.com Offer, and NYC Restaurant Week. Here are the details:
1. British Airways 4500 Avios Awards: Last Day to Book is Monday, February 1, 2016
As I wrote in British Airways Devaluation: Bye Bye 4500 Avios Awards in U.S., British Airways' Executive Club frequent flyer program is increasing the cost of British Airways award flights that start or end in the U.S. to a minimum of 7500 Avios each way for economy flights, and from 9000 to 15,000 Avios each way in business class. These are routes that are under 650 miles, such as NYC to DC, Chicago to Toronto, Charlotte to New Orleans and similar flights. So if you've done the math and a 4500 Avios award flight would be a better deal than a paid flight, book now before the awards become more expensive.
2. AMEX Jet.com $20 Off $50 in Spend Offer: Last Day to Book is Today, January 31, 2016
3. NYC Restaurant Week
While most of NYC's best restaurants do NOT participate in NYC Restaurant Week, there are still a few decent values, particularly for lunch, which is $25 + tax/tip for 3 courses. Note that Friday, February 5, 2016 is the last day of NYC Restaurant Week.
