FYI: All Domestic Airfares Are Valid Both Directions…

To clear up some confusion: whenever i post a domestic airfare, or for that matter whenever you see a domestic airfare advertised, the fare is valid from either city.
For example, when United had the $109 (mistake) fare on their p.s.(premium service) product from jfk-lax, the fare was also bookable from lax-jfk.
It is possible that there will only be $109 seats going from jfk-lax, and not lax-jfk on any given day, however that base fare is always available both directions.
The only airline that this would not apply to Southwest…

Roundup Of Portable Flash Memory Deals At Buy.com!

Update: To clear up some confusion here, based on questions from numerous that i have received: When you pay using google checkout(on the checkout page is the option to login to a buy.com account or pay with google checkout) they will automatically deduct $10 off $30, so the prices below are after the $10 coupon and after respective rebates. More info can be found by reading past posts on this. On items that aren’t quite $30 i have also listed a filler item to bump you over $30 to qualify for the $10 coupon, the prices listed for those items are after the filler item, coupon and rebate.
If you need portable memory these are the lowest prices ever for these products.
Here is a summary, by type:
Prices listed are after google checkout and rebate.
SD-512 MB For $1.45 (including $1.50 filler),
2 GB For $17.95
Mini-SD-2 GB For $24.95
Micro-SD-512 MB For $4.95
Memory Stick Pro Duo-1 GB For $9.95
USB-512 MB For $1.45 (including $1.50 filler),
4 GB For $59.95



On October 1st Sprint raised their SMS rate to .15/message.
This is a material change to the contract, and as such you have 30 days(from 10/01) to cancel your sprint service.
You cannot just cancel the contract and keep having service, you must actually cancel the service.
Not all of the CS agents will agree that this is a “material change” so it may take a couple of phone calls, buy you will be able to cancel for free.
Even if a CS agent says that the change won’t affect you because you don’t use SMS, just explain that you plan to start using it, or that incoming SMS gets sent even to non-sms users, and will now cost .15
To save yourself from future headache, be sure to take down the NAME and SPRINT ID of the agent that let you cancel for free!!!


Google Checkout Buy.com Receipts…

The following link should provide you with a buy.com reciept, even when using google checkout…

Allegiant Air…

This is a relatively new LCC, and I’m not going to make a whole roundup for them.(See previous LCC roundups via the links in the right sidebar)
In short all of their flights go from small secondary airports to either Las Vegas, Orlando/Sanford, or S. Petersburg/Clearwater.
They fly to about 50 cities in total using 23 MD-80 airplanes.
Besides for having a terrible website UI(make sure you choose flight only) and no mileage program there’s not much else to say about them.
Go check them out and see if they fly anywhere close to you!

"What About The Points Cards?"

From a recent comment by “Anonymous,” (he seems to post here a lot!)
“I saw a couple of times written about credit-card miles that are a scam and are no blackout dates, etc. i wanted to mention that the citi “thank you network” points are good for flights and its 25000 ty points for a ticket and they actually dont have any blackout dates, i was able to get a ticket from ny to la for kratzmach weekend without a problem. “

Anon-I couldn’t disagree with you more!
I am a fan only of the true mileage cards that give you actual miles.

While I am not familiar with all of the Thank You program, however i took a quick glance at it and i saw that for airline tickets:
-14 days advance purchase is required
-Saturday night stay is required.
I’m also going to assume(correct me if I’m wrong) that it is like all of the other “points-miles” cards, like the capital one “no hassle rewards” scam card, which carry a limit of what the ticket can cost, often limiting the points to no more than .01 each, and often even far less than that.

The great thing about true airline mileage cards is that
-you can book expensive last minute tickets
-on most airlines you can make free changes to the dates
-None of the major airlines still have blackout dates
-There is never a limit to the value of the ticket, so an international business ticket worth $10,000 may be only 90,000 miles, valuing each mile at over .11!

At any rate using miles for a domestic ticket is almost always a poor use a miles, but I will go into that further in a future post.

As long as you are somewhat flexible, a true miles(or a card that lets you exchange points for real miles, like an amex membership card or the starwood card) is the way to go-you will never get that kind of value out of any other rewards card, period.

Pittsburgh Hub Wars! $113 Flights To Denver And Dallas!

Update #2-9:00pm: As I predicted earlier today, AA has pulled the PIT-DEN fare as of 8:30pm!
Update #1-2:00pm: United has pulled the PIT-DFW fare, so the clock is now ticking(I’d estimate about 6 more hours) if you want to buy the $113 AA fare from PIT-DEN!
This is a classic example of a hub war retaliation.
At 12:30pm yesterday, the fare analysts over at United decide to file a $113+(approx. $30-$40 in taxes) Round trip fare from Pittsburgh to Dallas/Ft. Worth to boost traffic on that route.
AA, which operates a mega-hub out of DFW, doesn’t miss a beat and at the next airfare filing (8:30pm) filed a $113 airfare from PIT to Denver, which just happens to be a mega-hub for United…
Who gains from all this fighting? The consumer of course!
Of note: Hub war fares rarely stick around for too long, so buy now!(Or at least hold now, as both AA and UA offer hold options right on their websites!)
Both fares are valid from now through the end of schedule, and require 3 weeks advance booking, and 2 nights minimum stay:
PIT-DEN, bookable at aa.com
PIT-DFW, bookable at united.com
