  1. My best travel deal ever was a trip to Hawaii at Easter in the early ’90s when an airline settled a strike and offered $300 R.T. fares from NY to HNL on short notice. I tried that airline but the phone lines were jammed so I called AA and asked if they would match the price and they did! I have used this method several times and ended up with some fantastic deals and great routing.

  2. for the club carlson big night giveaway, a deal can be had in a cheap night to get 44K if you are in southern GA or norther FL. Kingsland GA Country Inns has a nightly rate of 89. I booked, then did a BRG on a price of 71 I found on travelocity. with the additional 25% discount that makes the night $57

  3. As a Hyatt Diamond you can book a room at sold out hotels with 24-hours notice. When doing this for high-demand hotels the booking rate is close to rack. Upon check-in I’ve had great success asking for my corporate rate to be honored and often times it is. This is great for conferences and trade shows when you book late. And because you are booking almost Rack your cancelation is rather generous at 6PM the day of.

  4. Back in the 90’s AA flew a MD-11 NRT to SJC and continuing on to DFW. I had a first class ticket for the SJC-DFW leg but the plane landed with an electrical problem which pushed back the departure time a couple of hours. Most of the passengers opted for a MD-80 flight instead of waiting for the MD-11. As it turned out I was the only passenger to wait for the flight and had the entire plane to myself. The 11 flight attendents watched a movie they had rented and made sure I had plenty of Chevis Regal for this most enyoyable flight.

  5. AA Vacations often has excellent deals on flight + hotel bundles. Especially if you’re traveling for leisure on a revenue ticket, it’s always worth checking out.

    I discovered the trick traveling ORD-YUL for a long weekend last summer; hotels in Montreal were pretty pricey (as were flights from Chicago). I ended up booking a package–2 round-trip tickets and 3 nights at a very nice local boutique hotel in a perfect Old Montreal locations–when I learned the marginal cost of the hotel would be less than $120 (for three nights, when rates were showing over $300/night booked separately!). (Or, the other way, using the room rate as the base, the incremental cost of flights was under $200 each, when flights were showing over $550 booked on their own.)

  6. For one of the cheapest nights to qualify for Club Carlson’s SOGO for NYC/NJ/CT area, check out the CIS in Millville, NJ for a $79 a night rate.
