I am so excited!! I saw a Tweet by my friend, Becky, today that showed Southwest was having cheap prices on tickets (ending today) and then a lady from our church came by and mentioned it, too. So, I thought I’d jump on the computer and check the fares to Houston, of course!! The dates offered were December 1-15 or January 4-February 16, or something close. So, we couldn’t get them for Christmas, but I thought I might just schedule another “Christmas” for me in February.
I could get a direct flight to Houston-Hobby (not the preferred airport) for $84 RT a piece. Then I texted Kale. He called me and asked if I had tried other airlines into Houston International (only a few minutes from his work) for the same time frame and we found nonstop flights for $79.50 each!!! Crazy, I know. So, I got tickets for all five of us (Daisy and Maddie, too) to go in February for less than I would normally pay for TWO!!
I got a little nervous tonight, though, when I put the tickets in my cart and when I signed in to Continental’s site, I had to re-find my tickets and they were showing $208 a piece! Freak out!! So, I opened another webpage and tried Expedia…same $208. OMG! I tried Continental again with no luck. I tried a date in January… still no luck. So, I used my trusty “back button” on my browser and found my old cart and there they were at $79.50!!! So, I checked out - quick. Whew!!!
If I could find $80 tickets every two months, I’d be one happy momma!!!
