Yes, believe or not, sero is still around!
While this can’t compare with the -$180 Sero Deal From 07/05/06 it’s still a great deal for a pocket pc phone with an awesome plan!

Before emailing me with questions about the plan please read these previous sero posts!

Bery S.(One of the lucky few to get in on the famous Hawaii deal…) commented the other day on a neat site that offers free international calling.
Whats the catch?
I honestly don’t know.
However I do know how to keep your back side covered in case it’s a scam…
The service has you call a number in Iowa, at that point you use it like a calling card, you enter the international number(landline only) you wish to dial, and it connects the call.
1. Always dial *67 before dialing the Iowa phone number so that they won’t have your number!
2. Do not press talk on your cell phone when dialing the international number, as that would start a new call and you will pay regular international rates. Just type in the number when prompted, nothing else.
3. If you’re still feeling wary to use the service from your phone, then just dial it via Skype so you can be assured of not receiving a bill (although there really isnt any way for you to get billed as long as you block your phone number from the company)
4. Enjoy it while it lasts!

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…

Instead of the normal 1 woot per day, for the next 12-72 hours or so woot will be selling lots of things for very short periods of time-expect some very good deals-but dont expect them to last more than a few minutes!!!

Update: Fares Are Now Bookable, check available dates at farecompare.com and then go directly to the airline’s web site to book.
All of these fares were filed at 12:30pm, so it will take a few more hours until they are bookable, I’ll post more details when they become bookable…
United: Pittsburgh Or Philadelphia To San Juan-$170
Delta: Philadelphia To Tampa-$99
USAirways: Pittsburgh To Tampa-$118

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.

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!!!

A few people have asked me what to send in as a rebate receipt when ordering from buy.com but paying with google checkout
The problem being that when you pay via google checkout you can’t get a buy.com receipt by logging into your buy.com account.
The following link should provide you with a buy.com reciept, even when using google checkout…

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!

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.
