If anyone has travel plans coming up I have airfare discounts that can save you 17.5% on flights.  Just go to google flights to price your airfare, then click on the option to "share this itinerary", choose "link", and PM it to me.

Here's how this works.  I have credit card rewards that are worth significantly more when redeemed for airfare.  I prefer cash but the redemption rate is significantly lower for cash so I book airfare for friends and family and have them pay me.  I still come out ahead offering a discount, so it's a win win for both of us.

Edit:  I can also get hotel discounts.  Just go to hotels.com and I should be able to save 15% on most hotels.  This stacks on top of any coupon savings, etc.

Sorry, just airfare.  I can get discounts on Amtrak, just not as much.

Thanks Tom.  Am I reading your original post correctly that this discount is only applicable toward refundable fares?

No, pretty much any airfare.  There are no restrictions or blackout dates.  I removed that from the original post to eliminate confusion.

Hi - are you still offering discounts? We want to fly from either Seattle or Vancouver, BC, to Sydney, Australia. We would like to leave around 27 November, 2016, and return on 21 or 22 December (we will be on a cruise from 7 - 21 December so can't return before then). There are 2 adults (seniors, if that helps). We'd like to fly non-stop, but most flights seem to go through LAX.

We could leave a little earlier - 2 or 3 days - but not much earlier.

Thanks. The cheapest flight I've found is $969 round trip per person and goes from Vancouver to Sydney with one stop.

Please e-mail us at <removed by moderator>.
