Groupon: Deal on L.A.-Chicago airfare via Virgin America

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

Groupon Getaways has a deal for travelers in Los Angeles and San Francisco who are bound for Chicago: $39 will get you $100 toward round-trip airfare and free in-flight Wi-Fi on Virgin America. The deal is good only for travel to and from the Windy City by the end of March.

Here’s how it works: Once you pay $39 via the Groupon sale page, you apply $100 to a single round-trip airfare from L.A. or San Francisco to Chicago -- a savings of $61. The ticket must be purchased from Virgin America at least three days prior to travel by 9:59 p.m. PST Feb. 29; travel must be completed by March 31. Take a minute to read the terms and conditions of the deal on Groupon before you make a purchase.

The deal lasts until Feb. 6 but might sell out before then; more than 5,000 deals have been sold since it was posted Tuesday morning.

A quick check of L.A.-Chicago airfares: I found availability for $89 each way leaving L.A. on March 23 (Friday) and returning March 27 (Tuesday). Total airfare comes $177.60, before the discount is applied.
