By  | 

If you’re looking for ways to find the best cheap flights without investing alot of time, here are my recommendations. Subscribe to daily newsletters from the following sites and you’ll be able to skim your best options in less than 5 min a day!

The Flight Deal scours the web for the best deals from New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Miami, Dallas Fort Worth, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland (OR), Seattle, and Chicago O’Hare. They provide date ranges, an explanation of how to make the most of it, and even instructions on how to book.

Fare Deal Alert is the companion site to The Flight Deal offering deal alerts from Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Orlando, and San Diego.

Airfarewatchdog let’s you see the cheapest airfares from your chosen airport, so it’s great if you don’t have a particular destination in mind and/or if you’re tracking fares for multiple cities.

Mileage Run forum on FlyerTalk — a great resource for random cheap flights and identifying routes that can maximize your mileage earning. They typically feature fares that earn miles at < $.05 cents per mile or less.

Milepoint Mileage Run thread — not updated as frequently as FlyerTalk, but good deals do pop up.

    What do people think is the best service where you can submit some parameters about a proposed trip, and have the system email you customized alerts? Maybe Yapta, but I’m not sure it worked the last time I tried it.
    I’d also like to know when I’m buying a ticket from X to Y what the lowest and highest price in the cabin is say over 12 months, kind of like the 52 week high and low for a stock.
    Further I’d like to know on what date the lowest fare in a market was or how often that low fare pops up.
