Always use incognito and close the tab after performing the search each time. I did some research into this one time and people swear by the Tuesday idea and 60 days before being the best time to buy. Personally I just add checking the prices into my daily schedule and have an idea of what price I am hoping for

The best way to find cheap flights is to be flexible on your travel dates and destinations. If you’re flying somewhere for an event, then book as early as possible.

like

Scott’s Cheap Flights is great to follow if you are a flexible traveler

Be willing to travel at random times, like a Tuesday morning. Look for deals when they come out, use points where u can

If it’s offseason then, incognito and anywhere between 1.5 months to 3 weeks before the trip is the best time to buy a ticket.

The cost of living calculator said I would need to have a 51% salary increase in order to have the same lifestyle in NYC. I’m currently making ~105k, which means I should make $158k to maintain my standard of living. My standard of living currently is that I’m single, have a one bedroom apartment for $1700/mth + utilities, no pets and no car. I like to cook during the week, and dine out on weekends. Prefer workout classes to a standard gym. Is this CoL accurate?
