thermometerjetBlue is cashing in on the summer heat in New York City, offering  90% off on some tickets on days the temperature hits 90 degrees Fahrenheit.  On days the thermostat reaches 90 degrees in Central Park, jetBlue will release the Hot Seats promo codes.  The tickets are good for round-trips from JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark to about 50 destinations.  The promotion runs through July 20th.

And for those of you who do not live in The Big Apple, jetBlue is currently in the final hours of another 48-hour sale, called “The Bet Your Autumn Dollar Sale.”  Yep, you guessed it – the discount is for Fall travel dates (September 3 – November 20), but you gotta book by midnight tonight.

Here’s some more travel news you can use:

  • Marriott Rewards and United MileagePlus, the loyalty program of United Airlines, are joining forces to provide the most loyal members of both the hotel and airline loyalty programs with new travel benefits.  A joint program called “Rewards Plus” will offer Marriott Rewards Platinum Elite members the additional benefit of MileagePlus Silver level status.
  • There’s a new service called Easynest that has found a way – albeit a creepy way – to save 50% on their hotel stay.  The site capitalizes on the fact that most hotel rates are based on double occupancy, whether or not there are two occupants.  By finding someone to share the room and the cost – which Easynest does – rates are cut in half.
  • Uber, the popular taxi-hailing service, has become the first company to be approved under New York’s new pilot program, which will allow selected companies to offer smartphone apps that let customers hail a cab from their phones.  A big win for technology and making travel easier!
