    Just keep shooting, click away and there should be a pop up that comes up.

    Discount code applies to fares over $200, booked within 48 hours of notification, for travel between Sept 6 and Nov 14. Travel is valid to or from DFW or MIA from or to anywhere in the forty-eight (48) contiguous United States of America.

    Having to book within 48 hours for flights a couple of months out is fairly limiting. Requiring DFW or MIA as either origin or destination is extremely limiting for anyone not in one of those two cities.

    Mine was not a real pop up, it was a pop up flash box on the same page.

    Yeah mine was like that as well. I entered my info then nothing happened though, didn't get an email or anything, so I don't know what to expect.

    Correct, not a real pop up. Just keep clicking the shoot button away.

    I don't know whether to be encouraged or discouraged by the fact that the "Keep Shooting" button works. At least I know buttons in that popup work, but why doesn't the submit button do anything?

    I had the same feeling...no response via email of entrance into the contest is disconcerting. The game seems hastily put together.

    Well what do you know...

    I just got an email (and I'm sure other people did as well) saying I won a 15% off promo code for the next booking to/from DFW/MIA.

    The catch is that you have to book in the next 48 hours and travel September 6th through November 14th.

    Yeah I looked at my upcoming trips and I have no use for it. Had it been 50% off rather than 15%, I probably would have created a trip around it, but as it stands I'm fairly sure I'm not going to use it.

    If anybody wants it, as long as you're not gonna let it go to waste, send me a PM and I'll hand it over.

    Likewise. I've got a 15% off code that I won't be able to use. Just PM.

    Good for those who can use this code, but too restrictive for the res of us. Indeed, looks like that most who have won these codes are now offering them to anyone who would PM. :D

    Yeah the thing was built to encourage last minute booking in the fall, but most people here that are traveling during that window probably already have things booked or are not interested in building a trip around a 15 percent discount.

    Like I said, had it been more I would have certainly tried to fit one in, but the most I'd be saving would be $25 or so. I bet between now and then a NetsAAver shows up that would make the trip cheaper than this discount.

    Bottom line most people probably are not going to plan a new trip, to book over the next day, to those destinations, just to save a couple of bucks. IMO anyway.
