Hey how's it going? I wanted to know does anyone have any discount codes for flights or know where I can possibly get a discount on a flight for me and my wife. I'm trying to do a round trip flight from Atlanta to Dallas and the tickets for now are kinda high. I would greatly appreciate it.

Subscribe to AIRFAREWATCHDOG.com for its twice weekly e-mail. They will let you know whenever there is a deal between Atlanta and Houston.

Also, you have to post dates if you want any meaningful help as fares vary greatly by day of the week.

As far as airfare goes, 25th is the least expensive day of the entire month of Dec. Last week, we checked out fares from FL to CA and found that Dec 25 is almost 50% less than all the other days. I also travelled last year on Dec 25, easy as a pie, no rush, no line, and no delay.

discount codes?

My old advise stands - their is no miracle discount codes or discount website for airline tickets. Never has been, never will be. They will use the same rack rate provided by the airlines, or sometimes even more expensive to add their "service charge". The best you can do is find a good search engine that list all airline flight options, be flexible with routes, times, and airports to find the cheapest route, and then go to the airline site to book your flight directly.

I use ITA:

if your travel dates are dec 24-dec 27 you have a 0% chance of finding a deal. just go to all the airilnes websites and book the cheapest one. prices are only gonna go up exponentially .

This whole airline deals is a sham. I hope the government looks into it stat. How a flight listed for $475 goes up 100% in 48hrs is beyond me. Moderator cut: language
