Post #23 compliments of Mr. Deals…
So I have some work travel coming up. Very exciting, I know (got to get my Gold Status on American – keep the comments to yourself). As per usual, Mrs. Deals is on my case about where I’m going to stay, how many nights I’m going to be there and whatnot. I know she’s scheming something and I will certainly have no say on which hotel I stay at. Since I was not sure how I was going to work out my schedule with meetings I held off a bit on booking the flight (I’m going to Atlanta btw).
Anyway, the flights were about $500 when I was looking a couple weeks ago. Pretty pricey and given that I work for a small company and tend to be cost conscious I was hesitant to just book something and started looking around for something cheaper. I eventually forgot about it and just this week realized I needed to get something booked. Mrs. Deals comes to find out I haven’t yet booked my flight and starts getting on my case about how expensive it’s going to be because I’m in the two week window and whatnot. Oh, and I was looking at an AirTran flight – that clearly was not resonating with her. I tell her to “pipe down” (she tells me that all the time) and low and behold, Mr. Deals goes ahead and lands a $234 fare on American. Booyah! I guess waiting worked out, right Mrs. Deals?
Now, Mrs. Deals, where the heck am I staying?
As always, thanks for reading and feel free to follow my banter with Mrs. Deals on Twitter at @mrdealswelike
