Last-minute Virgin America sale: buy one, get one free to/from Newark

The Flight Deal just published a pretty good deal for anyone wanting to go to Newark (the New York/New Jersey) area at the last minute with a companion, but it’s only available today (Sunday, November 3). Fares are only valid for two travelers.

This deal is very good, especially for last-minute flights. Here’s a couple sample trips:

San Diego – Newark roundtrip (connect in SFO)
$535 for two, or $267 each.

LAX – Newark roundtrip (nonstop)
$473 for two, $236 each.

SFO – Newark roundtrip (nonstop)
$531 for two, or $265 each.

Again, these aren’t the most amazing fares in general for these destinations, but they ARE really good for last-minute deals.

You’ll earn around 1,000 Elevate points for these flights with these prices.

Although Virgin America is not a member of an airline alliance, they do offer opportunities to earn and burn points and miles through Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Australia, Singapore Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and Emirates.

In addition, American Express Membership Rewards customers can transfer points between American Express Membership Rewards and Virgin America, although not at the best value.
