    I'm trying to get to Vegas in September for 3 free nights at Harrah's and I can't find a flight under $550 RT. This better change, that's cutting into my gambling money! :nono:

    too early to book for September. i'm also looking for flights for September, but unless they have some kind of limited time sale come up, the best prices don't show up until about 6 weeks out. i'll start looking heavily in July.

    I've been looking at Allegiant and all their prices seem a lot higher than normal as well. Theres about 1 sun-thur flight a month that is a little cheaper, but nothing great.

    Get one of the mileage credit cards. I booked a round trip non stop flight to Vegas for 27k points... at the time I could get 50k free points just for signing up...

    So free for me!

    What about SWA's 72-hour fall sale going on now through Thursday (good for selected dates from Aug 14-Nov).

    I booked roundtrip from San Antonio for a trip in early September on Monday before I received notice of the Southwest sale for $99 each way. :beer:

    I was bitching about prices too in another thread. Then someone said to watch SW for deal and sure enough a day or so later we found a very reasonable price and jumped on it. Keep looking.
