-Do note that I strongly advise taking advantage of the above price beat against Malindo for any Bali flights this year as they are expanding to SYD/BNE/ADL/BNE/PER, and have been giving out $200/$300 return fares.

    Does Jetstar price jack???

    • +5 votes

      No.

      The Cairns fare I was watching at $137 each way is now $137 and $0

      •  

        It's good they don't price Jack but it does seem like tickets go up and down during the day/weeks. Bought a ticket recently for 690, it went up about 60 during the course of two hours.

        Immediately after I bought my tickets, I went back to peek, oddly, price went down to 640 again. Then again this was multi trip on skyscanner, albeit with same the same airlines (jetstar, scoot)

        Jetstar luggage prices do fluctuate though, not sure if it applies online. But have called them as online system was doin me a bamboozle. It was as if I called a betting site.

          That's a known thing. Particularly with accommodation. With that, cookies/history tracking are also screwing us.

          People are more inclined to pay more/less on certain days/times.

          IE: Those thoughts of "Stuff this place, I'm booking a holiday" on Monday morning.

          •  

            @AssangesCat: Yeah, I guess they don't need to price Jack for sales if they're doing it for every other reason haha.

            I read a FAQ thing on Scotty's cheap flights and he said clearing cookies doesn't make one shred of difference- perhaps they've found ways to track outside of that too. I've used ddg browser and cleared cookies, prices were still the same. Though, granted I only fiddled around for an hour.

    Just booked 2 adults & 2 Kids to Phuket next march for 9 days return for $958. ($239.50 each person)

    Including bags for one adult (30KG) & Credit card fee.

    •  

      Quick question regarding Club Jetstar.. Does each person need to be a Club Jetstar member? Or only 1 person in the booking can be a member?

  • +10 votes

    Good prices for members. Fly to Bali for Valentine's day for $149.60 return. Take someone along for an extra $149.60 or if you are really tight, find someone there ;-)

    Their use of Tokyo in their example got me all excited. Alas, no Melb to Tokyo flights :(

  •  

    Slight increase in the Perth to Cairns price, compared to May last year when I went, fuel surcharge or just price increases overall??

    The wording for this section is a bit confusing:

    For your return flight, search for flights between 28 June to 31 July (Tokyo Narita and Osaka routes only), 6 October to 20 December 2019 and 7 January to 25 March 2020.

    Does that mean that the $0 return fares for Tokyo Narita and Osaka routes are ONLY available between 28 June to 31 July? Or is that they are available throughout all 3 date ranges, but between 28 June to 31 July is exclusive to Tokyo Narita/Osaka and is not available for other routes?

        Love shopping at Ross! Generally buy kids clothes and runners several sizes ahead. We travel with two suitcases within suitcases going across. Also go to Costco and often end up spending up there too.

          There's a Ross in Hawaii? omg!

        •  

          Is there any point in going to Hawaii Costco as opposed to Australian Costco? I’m about to go to Hawaii.

          • +1 vote

            @melbourne guy: We stay in a condo hence buy all our food from Costco. I bought my first Phillips Sonicare toothbrush set at Costco in HI and it was miles cheaper than here at the time, 8+ years ago now. Gift cards for various restaurants, tourist attractions, movies etc are much cheaper. We also pick up various vitamins, skin care, ointments etc there as it's cheaper than at home and/or iHerb. Swimwear is also cheaper, as is sunscreen, compared to here.

          Nordstrom rack was the best. Never went to Ross, definitely expensive. Check airbnb for a place. Definitely not a cheap holiday. Also if you plan any tours look online in advance.

    • +2 votes

      Hotels will cost a fair bit. That’s where it stings

    •  

      What do you buy? I just spent 2hrs at Ala Moana shopping centre and found nothing!

      Everything was about 10% more than Aussie prices,then add 30% for US conversion,then add tax, then add a tip.

      Am I missing something?

      •  

        Go to the outlets and Ross. Better bargains.

        •  

          Ok, Ross was better but basically the same as Paul's warehouse at home. All small runs of items, Small defects, Asian sizes etc. But cheers for the tip. I'll have a look in the Wakiki store today.

          I think the Aussie dollar is too far gone for Hawaii. The cost of food and accommodation especially. Then you add tax and tips.

          1 litre of milk or pack of chips is $3.89 US!

          •  

            @tunzafun001: Yes the dollar is garbage, but it's also the timing of your trip. I've been when it's Labor Day & Black Friday sales - discounts on discounts! Hopefully you find better deals in NYC. Happy shopping & good luck!
            P.s I have never tipped a retail person!

        Steer well clear of Ala Moana. Everything there is priced for the Japanese tourists. Waikele outlets are okay but my go to really is Ross & Costco. Shops in Waikiki, bar Ross, are overpriced too.

      •  

        I hope that as a joke about the prices - no need to tip when you are shopping!

        •  

          The store people hover around you in the stores, then when you pay at the counter they ask who "assisted" you. When you scan your card it asks for gratuities for the person who haunted you the whole time. So they do ask for tips at the shops.

          P.S. I used the Citi locator for Citiplus card cash withdrawal. It says to use the target ATM in Alo Moana for no fee…. Charged me $6!

        When you go to the outlets sign up for the premium outlets a few days before you leave (it's valid for 30 days). Then provide the voucher to the outlet and you will get a booklet for more discounts on top of what the store is offering. This applies for any of the premium outlets in USA, not just Waikele

        Also if you're getting anything from Macy's show your Aussie passport at customer service and they will give you a voucher for 10% off

    I can't find any details on what's included in the birthday sale. Just says "birthday sale coming soon…"

    Any tips?

    Bangkok for $289 return sounds tempting. Once you arrive take road trip to Pattaya :D

    •  

      Wanna buy this, cannot find any dates?

    •  

      I am sure you are going to Pattaya for Yoga lol

      Remember, man who walks sideway through airport door in Asia is surely going to bangkok

    •  

      My tickets only ended up being $518 for 2 people including 15kg checked baggage there and 25kg back

      with carry on baggage only it's $229 which is insane!! We plan to head to Pattaya to check it out too :D we've done everything we want to do in Phuket so don't really feel a need to go back, the proximity to Bangkok makes it appealing!

      •  

        How did you get this price? I got $638 pp no checked baggage… $790 with checked baggage.

        •  

          from where ?

          •  

            @shadowangel: From melbourne, I booked the dates Feb 29th to March 10th and there was still plenty of flights for $229 (for jetstar club members of course)

        •  

          Maybe you are from a different state or didn't select sale dates? Also I should have clarified that was for one bag to share (we've been to thailand many times and don't really need space for souvenirs etc)

          Currently from Melbourne there is still $229 flights from:

          18th Feb - 25th feb

          20th feb - 27th feb

          11th feb - 22nd feb

          3rd March - 12th March

          Plenty left.

    mine wont work now either says sale coming ,did a chat online with Jetstar they say no outage but there is

    •  

      Mine went down twice during my booking. Second time I got the busy screen I then lost my cheaper fare, was only a difference of around $20 but was still annoying. Jetstar's website often has difficulty during sales.

  •  

    working now

  •  

    I dont have a jetstar club account, would someone be kind enough to help me check below flight:
    I just want to confirm it is return for free before I purchase jetstar club membership, thank you all.

    Gold coast to Tokyo around 18th Dec
    Tokyo to Gold Coast around 8th Jan

  •  

    Thanks, what about coming back.
    Can I book around 1st Jan for free returns flights?

  •  

    Amazing. Was going to buy flights last night Melb to Queenstown in November (2 Adults, 1 Infant). Our 50$ gift card buggered up cos the session timed out so have to wait 24 hours before the gift card balance is available again (what a stupid system that is!). Now this sale has come up and the flights that was gonna be $1121 is now $757! To risk it and wait till 8.30pm when the gift card has balance again… or just buy now and take the $350 savings.

      No brainer, buy it now! If it had worked last night you'd be kicking yourself now; blessing in disguise hence don't look the gift horse/card, pun intended, in the mouth! ;)

      •  

        I second that, buy now rather than wait. You may be able to use gift card later to add baggage, meals, etc.

        • +8 votes

          Win, win. Got on the live chat. They took off the preauth on the gift card. Worked again straight away. What a ripper for it not working last night! Thank you crappy gift card system :)

    Booked flights to Melbourne for Presidents cup last week….God Damnit. lol. Would have saved $75.
