    got an email today for a Summer promo fare and must be booked by May 24, 2012, I was planning to go to NY in August for a wedding, I thought I can get a discount, check the rate, the rate was exactly the same as the rate from yesterday and last week no change, so where is the promo rate? I felt like this was a bogus promo.

    I believe the promo only applies to travel on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Were you searching those days?

    Don't wait for AA on this one, get yourself some AA gift cards at Costco if you have a membership or ask a friend. They sell them for 10% discount.

    The best AA fare "sales" aren't going to be coming to you in a pre-packaged pretty email with a PLEASE BUY ME bow on top. If AA sends me an email letting me know they've got great prices on flights, I give it a scan but I already know I can find a better deal on my own.

    The real steals you find are by keeping tabs on routes and checking them on a regular basis. Then when you see a great price you squeal, you grab your credit card, you book yourself a $250 flight to Honolulu, you watch the itinerary go into ticketed status, and you dance a little jig.

    Speaking of... Aloha to all my fellow MilePoint AA forum members as I enjoy the Hawaiian islands this Memorial Day weekend courtesy out AA. Looking forward to meeting one of you at the LAX AC on my way out too! :D

    I've been to Hawaii at least twice a year for the past three years. I've done between $200 - $450 r/t ai on those trips from the midwest or east coast. It's actually getting a cheap hotel that's the bigger issue!

    Yes, thanks to the very generous giveaway of some SWUs earlier this year, I was able to get upgraded to F on all 6 segments, and was in F all the other trips except one flight KOA-LAX and the one flight I took on UA.
