Take 3: If you live by your morning Starbucks run…

Take 5: If you've been holding out for cheap flights for months…

JetBlue's seasonal sale is here to save you (and your bank account). But you have to act fast: The carrier's signature $39 flight deal ends at midnight tonight! Prices are only valid for travel between April 4 and June 14.

Your afternoon pick-me-up:
