Has anyone tried these? $499 to $699 gets you unlimited travel for about a month, excluding taxes and fees.

I'd spend a lot of transport to and from the aeroporte, as well as accomodations.

I wonder whether you get lower priority for heavily-booked flights. Still, seems like it could be a great deal if you have some footloose and fancy free time to spend and are open to playing things a bit by ear.

I was reading about this on slickdeals and really wishing I was still unemployed... It is "last seat" availability which means up to 3 days before the flight takes off, if there is a seat open, you can book it. From the stories posted on slickdeals, it sounded awesome. I wish I had known last year--would have been easy to keep up the job search while traveling and I could easily stop off places for interviews. If I had ~2 weeks of vacation time open, I would consider it. If scheduled right, I could do the first two weeks starting on the 4th (pass doesn't start but I already have plans to visit friends in denver over labor day and would just take my first flight from there). This would take only 9 days of vacation (for 16 days of travel). Here I would probably try to cram in bunch of cool places. Then I would still have 2 weekends left in the period...do one in NYC and then pay the international taxes and do the other offshore--probably costa rica. Use a 10th vacation day to extend the last weekend Edit...I currentlty have slightly over 9 days of vacation...that will go up to 10 on friday and I should accrue a bit more over the course of the all you can jet pass...

Must stop myself from actually buying...I just planned it out I finish my denver vacation on the 6th (lets hear it for celebrating my birthday on a plane!), fly from chicago to LA... LA to SF (maybe also seattle but that requires LA->seattle->LA->sf) SF to Austin Austin to Ft Lauderdale (I have a friend who must have a couch in miami but unless I try to go to key west I might only stay a day and use it as a transfer point) Ft Lauderdale to Washington Washington to Boston Boston back to Chicago. That takes care of the first two weeks Then do a weekend in NYC (friday night flight, late sunday or early monday return) Final weekend take another day or two and do costa rica...not sure how the timing would work but ideally a late thursday flight with a late monday return.. This would only cost 11 days of vacation and $699+~80 (international fees). $499 if it could be done without a friday/sunday flight (NYC would either require another day off or missing friday night
) Housing would be free in SF, DC, NYC for sure, maybe boston too. I could probably do family in seattle and LA (but it would be too far out of the city)...would probably try to do hostels/couchsurf some of the others. Starting to look tempting but I have other things I might want to do that month and if I can be reasonably sure they will do this again next year, I could aim for 3-4 weeks straight

This is such a sweet deal for people who actually have that much time to travel.

it really is. and i really love flying jet blue. they fly out of our long beach airport and i don't think i've ever had more than 5 people in line in front of me going through security. seats are comfortable and you can watch mark bittman while you're flying. what more could you ask?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
