There are some crazy airfare deals going on right now...like crazy, insane low! I've seen rates of $30-60 each way for roundtrip totals of less than $100 for some trips!
If you're headed to a blog conference this year, even if it's months away, now might be a good time to check rates. I got a great rate for Blissdom last week and this week, the rate was $70 lower!
Good rates happening at American, United, and Southwest that I've seen. Getting a good airfare rate can help make your goal of attending a reality!
