The Flight Deal:  Everyday at 3 pm I get The Flight Deal Newsletter delivered to my mailbox with about a dozen or so offers.  Here are some deals that have come across my screen the last few days:  United Boston/Houston $136 R/T, TAP New York to various European Cities for $142 (one way),  Quantas San Fran/Auckland $308 R/T,  American Airlines PHL/MIA $106 R/T, Virgin New York/Maui $479 R/T.  Sign up for the daily newsletter right on the website.

UpgradedPoints:  Just found out about this one.  Great and to-the-point tips on travel credit cards, searching for cheap airfares, earning and redeeming miles.  They have an EXCELLENT tutorial on how to use the matrix.itasoftware.com tool like a pro to find the absolute, lowest airfares to destinations.

The Points Guy:  I like it most for Brian Kelly’s reviews of different planes like the 787-9 or Jet Blue’s new premier class service.  He does list some deals like New York to Dubai for $577 R/T.  I like his tips on how to get upgrades and maximize your frequent flyer miles. 

ITASoftware:  Travelers should only use ITASoftware if they are interested in saving money and getting the best air itinerary possible.    It beats the heck out of Expedia, Orbitz and all the rest.  Get my free 7-page guide on how to use ITASoftware.
