Tiza, thanks for the tip about searching for airfare in private/incognito mode. I truly think all that refresh page on kayak.com, etc, got us the great deal when we went out to San Diego a couple years ago. I was also of the mindset that if I got a great price, we'd go for spring break, if I never saw a great price, I'd wait until summer for the trip and continue to watch prices every day. The rates finally dropped for us approximate 30-45 days before the trip. They dropped big time and I hit send so fast my computer spun around;)
Cindy - hope you get a great deal and are able to come! Can't wait to see you again!
