    So researching pricing for my May birthday trip I noticed that if we fly in on Wed instead of Thursday we could save $20 and that includes hotel for the extra night..um yes please. Hopefully my sis can get the extra day off work...one more day in Vegas to actually save money.:evillaugh:

    The fun of planning the trip can only be trumped by going on the trip! It's the most fun you can have between trips. I fly Southwest so there is no penalty for rebooking so like others here i check at least 2 times a day as well as check the threads here looking for a better deal or flight reduction.

    The normal cheap days are tues, wed and saturday, but there are exceptions. taking an earlier or later flight might save you a few bucks and if you are flexible one week might be way cheaper due to holidays, school vacations, major conventions etc. Try finding a good deal wth a broker like Booking.com or go to Kayak.com. If you find a good deal call the hotel direct and see if they will match or beat the deal. My last flight started at $360 and ended at $225 and the hotel beat the broker's best deal by $150 for an 8 night stay.

    If you know what shows you wuld like to see, you may save by buying discounted tickets ahead of time. SEARCH for coupons too. Have fun!
