Good morning from the beautiful capital of the Indian Punjab, Amritsar. While I stuff my face with delicious Punjabi food, I have to fill you in on some delicious travel hacks (sadly, not as delicious as this Palak Paneer, though).

  • ✈️ KLM/Air France Promo Rewards (June 2023)

  • 💸 Southwest flash sale (TODAY ONLY)

  • 👽 What will travel look like in 100 years?

✈️ KLM/Air France Promo Rewards (June 2023)

As you know, KLM/Air France Promo Rewards are deals that are published every month by KLM and Air France that offer huge discounts on specific routes with these airlines.

I know it’s already the 15th of the month, but I just realized that I never told you about this month’s Flying Blue Promo Rewards, and I feel very, VERY sorry.

The reason I’m so sorry is that this month, they are offering deals to Europe on both economy AND business-class flights from a variety of cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Here is how these promo rewards work:

  • You must book your flights by the end of the month (June 30th)

  • Travel can take place through November 30th, 2023

  • You must book your trips via either KLM or Air France, depending on the city (see the screenshot above)

  • Discounts will automatically be applied to search results

Some of the highlights for this month include Detroit and New York to Europe for under 12,000 miles one-way, and some more unique routes like Minneapolis to Europe for just 18,750 miles.

As fate would have it, I went to search for the Minneapolis deal, and ended up finding flights for just 15,750 miles… which feels like a mistake? But hey, I’m not complaining.

But that’s not all…

Right now, this bank has a 25% transfer bonus to KLM/Air France Flying Blue, meaning you only need to transfer 9,000 of their points to book some of the flights that cost 11,250 miles one-way.

If you don’t have any points with that bank, you’re still in luck.

You can transfer points to Flying Blue from every major bank, giving you PLENTY of options for booking these incredible deals.

Our Top Cards Page includes plenty of cards that could each earn you plenty of round-trips to Europe at this price.

This is an amazing opportunity to book dirt-cheap flights across the Atlantic. They’re so cheap that it makes sense to book a positioning flight to one of these cities to make these flights work.

💸 Southwest flash sale (TODAY ONLY)

Go Southwest, it’s ya birthday! 🎂 If you haven’t heard by now, the airline is turning 52 this weekend (though 52 is the new 32… as they say). But to celebrate, they’re offering some sweet discounts and daily prize giveaways.

For starters, you could score 40% off base fare flights this fall if you book between June 13th-15th… so that means the last day to book and get this discount is TODAY, y’all.

There are, of course, some details to be aware of:

  • Flights are limited, but the sale applies to travel between August 15th - December 14th.

  • This excludes blackout dates around Thanksgiving (from November 16th - November 27th).

  • Use promo code “40OFF” to secure your discounted flight.

  • You can get this discount on both cash AND award fares 👇

Plus, with Southwest’s no change fees, if you’ve already got a flight booked for this fall, you could potentially cancel and rebook if it’s cheaper (and eligible). It’s definitely worth looking into!

If you’re a little anxious about canceling a flight to rebook it, give their customer service a ring for additional assistance and reassurance.

Many of you in the Lounge have already taken advantage of this (whoo!) 👇

They are also allowing you to buy points at 40% off which has the potential to be a good deal, but definitely check the numbers before you commit.

In addition to these discounted fares, Southwest is also giving away prizes each day leading up to its actual birthday on June 18th!

They’ve aptly named it “Wanna Get Away Day,” and you could win everything from round-trip airfare to extra SW points or even a Companion Pass (among other things!).

To enter to win a prize, just fill out the sweepstakes form before 11:59 p.m. CT on June 18th. You’ll also need to be a Rapid Rewards member to enter.

👽 What will travel look like in 100 years?

Earlier today I found this article by The Points Guy where they interview a series of design, travel, food, and technology experts about what travel will look like in the coming decades and centuries.

I think it’s a lot of fun, and the visuals are also super cool. So check it out if you want to read something a little different today.

That’s all for today, friends! I don’t know about you, but I love how Flying Blue (Air France and KLM) put out these amazing deals every single month.

I personally take advantage of them all the time and think that it’s one of the best travel hacks ever.
