Deal or No Deal 1.19.11

It's been a while since I had a post of just awesome deals. I have several good posts coming up next about frequent flyer miles and how to use them for your benefit, but today, I'd like to just focus on budget travel and some of the best deals out there that you can take advantage of. Save money by signing up for travel alert emails. My favorites are ShermansTravel, TravelZoo, CheapTickets and FareCompare. If you have a favorite airline or airlines, sign up for them, too. If you choose a preferred destination, this can work even more in your favor, because as soon as there is a fare sale, package deal or drop in hotel rates, you'll know about it. And without further ado, here's what I dug up for you.


Need to getaway? American Airlines wants to fly you across the U.S. with their flight sale good through January 24. Travel between now and May 24 for as little as $29 each way.
