Save Money on Airfare by Buying in Bulk

JetBlue recently released a new way for you to get a bargain on airfares: The Go Pack. The basic idea is brilliant—especially for business travelers and those who are constantly visiting relatives or friends in nearby cities they'd rather not drive to—allowing people to buy 10 one–way flights to certain cities based on the hub you plan to leave from the most. Let's say you live in New York City but are constantly visiting your relatives in Boston or Washington D.C. You can purchase a block of tickets between the three cities—this particular block also includes Baltimore, all D.C. area airports, JFK, and Newark—for a set price, pay $7 in air taxes each time, and off you go. Go Packs are on sale through Sept. 6th, or while supplies last, and travel dates are Sept. 12th through Dec. 19th, 2012 with blackout dates between Nov. 20th and Nov. 26th.
