This weekend we celebrated Mike’s birthday out in the burbs- his mom made a delicious chicken parm dinner with an unbelievable mocha torte for dessert. She also let us know that she just made plans to fly out to Arizona again to visit her sister and that her flight was just a little over $200 round trip from Boston.

Are flights going to continue getting cheaper?

I decided I would test out this theory but then conveniently, my Twitter buddy Caitlin Murphy let me know about a contest, that I believe has much more validity than the travel deals I found with Malaysia Airlines and that to-good-to-be-true “free round trip to anywhere in the world bit” that I found at Boston Globe Travel show.

The contest could earn you free nights in Belize. Realizing that earning a free trip is even better than hopping on a cheaper flight, I asked her if she had any other deals or contests and she kindly passed them along. And now, I am passing them along to you!
