Winter is over. That means that Spring and Summer are both coming, and the sunshine and warm weather can’t get here soon enough. Once that rolls around you’re going to want to jet off somewhere where you can take a nice little vacation with both the sunshine, and the warm weather, and maybe some sand, or even an amusement park. The choice is yours. But the odds might not be in your favor when it comes to trying to snag a reasonably priced flight.

The struggle of planning a vacation and not breaking the bank is real, and now we’ve got DealRay here to help us. They’re a flight booking website that specializes in finding “mistake” flights — so when someone hits a wrong button importing arrivals/departures into the computer and you end up flying from NYC to LAX for $68 dollars. DealRay is here to point you towards those flights, so you can fly across the country and THE WORLD for super cheap.

This is how it works: you sign up for DealRay, and then when they spot a “glitch” in the flight booking system, they’ll send you a text telling you that you need to book this flight IMMEDIATELY. You can also tailor your messages so you only get ones for your specific airport. So simple, and so perfect, and thank you, DealRay.

The system is ideal for anyone looking to book a last-second flight, and can drop everything and take a vacation. There’s one small catch, and it’s that to use DealRay’s deals, it’s going to cost you $9.99 a month. But when you’re saving sometimes almost $200 on a flight, that’s a small price to pay. Also, your first month is free (like Netflix LOL) if you just want to check it out and see for yourself.

From what we’ve seen so far, it’s worth it. Flights that would otherwise been totally unrealistic are now totally within your budget.

Here’s a flight from NYC to Chicago on DealRay. For $71 ROUND. TRIP.

Here’s that same flight elsewhere on the internet.

Yeah, sure it’s only a difference of about $10, but that $10 can buy you another slice of deep dish pizza. And now how about trying to fly somewhere else, like not in the continental United States? How about, Hawaii?

That same flight elsewhere is well over $300.

So whatever flight voodoo DealRay is working with, we like it. It might take a little bit of fiddling around on the website to find the flight you’re looking for, and you can start your free month with the site here. I actually just got a text to my phone for a flight from LAX to NYC for $130 round trip, so brb, planning a long weekend to the Big Apple.
