US Airways

If you are willing to purchase frequent flyer miles, now is a great time to do so on US Airways. From now through May 25, you can earn up to 100 per cent bonus. 

If you purchase between 10,000 and 19,000 miles you will get a 50 per cent bonus; If you buy 20,000 to 29,000 miles, you will get a 75 per cent bonus; and if you purchase 30,000 to 50,000 miles, you will get a 100 per cent bonus. At the top end of the scale that works out to 3.5 cents per mile. 

JetBlue 

The airline has increased the number of cities in which you can use a mobile boarding pass. 

It already was available at JFK, but if you are hitting connectors elsewhere, it is good in 45 cities, including the popular Fort Lauderdale airport. 

Fort Lauderdale Airport

Speaking of which, the South Florida airport alternative to Miami is going through an expansion. 

There’s a lot of construction inside the terminal, which is helping clog the walkways, but more importantly, it has started construction on a $791 million, 8,000-foot runway. 

The new runway will allow for it to handle more flights — the more flights it handles, the more competition, which should help bring the price down. 

The runway is expected to be competed in September. 

Hertz

Staying in southern Florida, Hertz rental car agency is offering deals for both the Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas.  A one-week car rental can be had as low as $105 (economy class) up to $199 a week for minivans and standard SUVs. All rentals come with unlimited mileage. The deal is good from now through September 30.
