Fly me to the moon! (Or to Aruba for $274 roundtrip!!!)
My loyalty to Scott’s Cheap Flights stemmed from my dire need to take a vacation last winter. I hadn’t flown anywhere in over 5 years (I’ll save my embarrassing TSA story for another time) and was well overdue for some R&R. The destination? Walla Walla, Washington, aka ridiculously expensive airport to fly into.
A friend overheard me talking about my trip, enter Scott’s Cheap Flights to the rescue. I gave it a gander and it seemed pretty awesome, plus it was FREE so why not?! To my surprise, I was soon able to snag a roundtrip fare for under $230 (normally around $400). A couple of months later, I was wine tasting with my mom in the beautiful Walla Walla hills.
How does Scott’s Cheap Flights work?
The way that it works is simple. Scott’s full-time job is searching for sweet flight deals for you and me. Sometimes they’re errors that the airline makes and sometimes they’re just really good rate drops.
Once you sign up for a free or premium membership, you’ll select your home airport and any other nearby airports you would fly out of. You’ll then receive daily email alerts for new flight deals from your selected airports to destinations all over the world.
Free membership vs. premium
Just by signing up for free, you can snag tons of awesome deals. BUT, you won’t get everything that premium members get. After using the free service for about 3 months, I chose to upgrade to premium for just $49/year so I could enjoy even more flight deal perks.
Here’s what premium members get that free members don’t:
- Premium-only deals: You’ll get the best deals to highly desirable destinations and about 5 times more deals than free members have access to. I booked a Cancun roundtrip for $280😲 (normally over $600)! If I had you at Cancun, go get started on your premium membership signup now!
- Accidental airfare and rare deals: Lucky for us premium members, we get notifications when airlines mistakenly post the wrong rates. We’re also the first to find out about desirable flights that rarely have deals.
- Peak season alerts: You’ll have access to flight deals during popular seasons and holidays when airfare is normally higher. Maybe you can fly back home for Christmas after all!
As I mentioned, my friend (pictured above in Ireland) was the lifesaver who introduced me to Scott’s Cheap Flights.
“Scott’s Cheap Flights keeps my traveling imagination a reality. It gives me inspiration for the next trip and opens my mind to places I’ve never thought about, or maybe, have never heard about before.
In 2017, I got an email notification that flights to Ireland were like $280 or so and they are normally in the upper $400s. I texted a girlfriend and we booked our tickets THAT day. That would’ve never happened if I didn’t have my handy email from Scott.”
Scott’s Cheap Flights is where travel dreams come true! 😍
If you need more convincing, head over to their website and read the feedback from actual premium members. What’s even better, you’ll get a free month of premium service anytime you refer a friend, so be sure to share these awesome perks with all of your traveling buddies!
