Jackpot Air Fare
We are headed to Michigan this evening, for long visit. I hit what I call the "Jackpot Airfare", with Spirit Airlines and their email specials. I have been watching their deals every week for at least year and a half, just waiting for that deal so I could go visit family and friends on a last minute whim. They had the sale advertised for one way tickets at $11.11. So after playing around with the dates and times, we ended up with $22 round trip tickets from LA to Detroit, no stops. Of course there are a few added fee's, taxes, baggage and seat reservations, so in total, we are paying $200, for 3 of us to fly. Woo Ho !! Most of the people ask, how can that be possible ?? It does mean we are taking a red eye flight out of LA, and a very early flight back home out of Detroit, but I think it is worth it. I will gladly report how it all goes. In the meantime, go to Spirit Airlines and sign up to be on their email specials mailing list (their is a link on the top of their site that says e-mail specials). They have a $9 fair club that cost's money to be a part of, in my opinion, you don't need to sign up for that, just the emails. They come every Tuesday morning, and you need to act fast if you see a deal for you, because they sell out quick !!
I plan to blog from Michigan, hopefully post a picture daily to document our fun and adventures while we embrace humidity, summer rains, and mosquito's !
P.S. The image above is from the cover of a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of, you guessed it, Michigan !
