Chicago for the weekend for $68.20

trips

I recently traveled from New York (LGA) to Chicago (ORD) on Spirit Airlines for $68.20 (all in) round-trip. I have family in Chicago, so it’s always great to hop over and visit them for a weekend.

The flight schedule was perfect–I left New York on Friday night at 10pm and returned Sunday evening around 9pm. It is a treat to find a flight for my fiancé and me for the weekend that is this convenient.

During our weekend trip, we made sure to have brunch at one of my places to visit in Chicago, Shaw’s Crab House, known for their weekend brunch.

  • American Express Centurion Lounge Guide – How to get in, what’s it cost and what’s inside. There’s a lounge located at La Guardia airport pre-security that’s definitely worth a visit.
  • Spirit Airlines – How to win when flying Spirit Airlines. This budget airline is one of the greatest examples of unbundled fees. If you aren’t careful you could even end up paying much more than your fare.
  • Free Spirit – The basics of the Spirit Airlines frequent flyer program. Similar but a bit different most airline frequent flyer programs. Getting value out of the miles takes a bit more effort.
  • Skyscanner – One of the best sites to use to find cheap fares. I’ll post about how I use them to find cheap weekend trips.
