I normally don't even consider pl or hotwire for airfare, but I thought I would give them both a shot for our spring break vacation. We need 5 tickets.

I have been monitoring the airfare for awhile for den-iah. Non stop is around $286 and connecting is around $254. There was a sale a few weeks ago for $233 ns, but our plans weren't in stone at that time.

I've been checking hotwire and the price has been $245 for the for their "Flexsave fare". Yesterday, I checked and they had a "Clearance Fare" for $217. I went to PL and tried at $165 which with fees would be $205 per ticket. PL came back with a counter of $245 per ticket. I declined. Since the hotwire option to choose your own times had 6am departures going both ways on America West, I suspected that if I purchased the "Clearance fare" I would end up with these early flights. So I decided to wait.

Having little experience with hotwire, today, I read the BFT Hotwire section and noticed that adamgould had posted a recent hotwire fare and talked about the entertainment book rebate of $30. So I marched upstairs and got my entertainment book and mine also has the $30 rebate coupon. So I went back to hotwire and booked the "Clearance fare" with the rebate. We ended up get a NW flight with a 9:30am departure time and 7:50am departure on the return flight. Much better. I found it interesting that there was not a NW option on the choose your own time section.

So we ended up with 5 r/t tickets DEN-IAH for $211 after the rebate is factored in with decent flight times.Thanks,

My friend needs to go to Toronto either June 16 or June 17th and return June 19th.

Bidded on Priceline 6/17-6/19 and received no counter offer. Added all the options and also no counter offer.
