Some of you have heard about the "mistake" fares that get scooped up by lucky and savvy buyers and the airline is required to honor them, most of the time.
These mistake or great deal fares usually get snatched up before I ever even hear about them, but NO MORE friends.
The websites I chose to have send me alerts are from the RSS feeds of The Flight Deal and Fare Deal Alert. I also recently discovered the site Mighty Travels which I can't have alerts sent to me as it is not an RSS feed, but I can still check it often.

He does a better job of explaining it than I ever could.
So now anytime a new deal comes up featuring Portland/Seattle. I will immediately get an email, which in turn gets sent to my phone so I will never miss a deal again.
Happy bargain hunting!
