Bought my ticket

November 8th, 2013 at 10:06 am

After a lot of back and forth, changing plans, etc., I went back to my original plan -- fly to Tampa on the 19th and out on the 24th. My DIL changed her plans, so I will get to see my granddaughter after all!

I was planning to fly United and use my $200 voucher, but the price shot up to more than $535. So I went with Spirit for $281 (which includes a checked bag) and I'll save the voucher for another trip; hopefully, a cheaper one. Maybe a fun one.

Spirit doesn't offer bereavement fares, but the ones that do were way more expensive.

Other than my train fare yesterday, I did not spend anything.

I found another penny this morning under a parking meter. It's slow going, getting to that next milestone, which is $50!

    My husband says that bereavement fares are jacked up by unethical airlines taking advantage of folks who don't have many options. It is a horrible practice but has been going on at least 15 years that he knows of.
