Airline fare went down too late

April 21st, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Just got a Priceline notice this morning that I could get airfare to Austin for $252. Darn! I paid $391 a few days ago! I hate it when I screw up.

Despite saying that this will be a low-spend time for me, I went out to lunch yesterday (my boss asked me; I couldn't say no). I also took the opportunity to treat her, since her birthday is coming up this weekend. $21. At least I paid cash, so it won't affect the bloated credit card problem.

AND, I'm going out to lunch today, because my other boss, who was fired, is here for her last day, and a bunch of us are taking her out for a final farewell. Couldn't say no to that either.

I'm going to another author talk/book signing tonight. It's become my new form of entertainment. The author tonight is Don McCaig, who writes Civil War fiction. I checked out one of his books from the library last night, and after reading a little bit I realized I had read it already. That's good! I just wanted to familiarize myself with his work.

Tomorrow I have the day off for Good Friday. So glad to have a three-day weekend! Now if it would just warm up!

    That's too bad ... as my DH says, "win a few, lose a few." I'm with you on the "if it would just warm up!"

    I hear orbitz matches the airfare, but I haven't tried it.
    Isn't airfare the most exasperating thing to buy? I never feel like I've got a good deal.

    I looked into the Orbitz price guarantee, and it appears that for air travel, you get a reimbursement for the price difference if someone else books a lower fare on the same flight, both ways. So the odds are against that happening -- but since it is a conference trip, and no doubt a lot of people will be booking out of Chicago, there is a chance!
