Recently I’ve discovered a website called scottscheapflights.com. I know I know, it looks kinda sketchy, but that website actually sends out a good number of flight deals, if you are willing to cough up $15 for a 6 month subscription to his mailing list. He also has a free version of the mailing list with less deals, so sign up for that at least and see what that’s like. I’m sure you’re wondering what kinda deals he sends out, and here are some examples: (All of them were verified as bookable at the time of email, though some of them disappeared 20 minutes after, truly glitch fares)
All Round-trips, all taxes and fees included:
Los Angeles – Sydney $370
NYC – Sydney $410
SF – Bangkok/Singapore/HCMC $370
Boston- Lisbon $203
NYC – Paris $260
SF – Paupa New Guinea $464
NYC – London $391
Chicago – Mykonos, Greece $368
Lax – Shanghai $320
When you sign up, you will get an option to pick which regions you want to subscribe to. I would suggest you pick the region you are currently in, and the region where most of your friends are. This way, you can be a pal and let them know of any great deals that pop up:
You’re probably wondering if it overlaps with theflightdeal.com, and the answer is no, when I get the alert for flyforfree, I do not get repeating alerts from theflightdeal.com and vice versa. Sometimes theflightdeal catches the tail end of a deal and posts about it, but flyforfree was a day or two ahead.
TL;DR Sign up for the mailing list at scottscheapflights.com, you won’t regret it. Or just watch out for my facebook deal reposts.
