Broke-Ass Porn: Cheap Airfare Websites

Once a week we present Broke-Ass Porn.  It’s visually stimulating material for the financially impaired.  If this shit doesn’t get you going, you’re not as broke as you thought:

The other day I found myself sitting at the computer, playing with different cheap airfare sites, and fantasizing about buying a ticket.  Oh yeah, it was hot.  I even tweeted, “The most masturbatory thing I do is look at cheap airline tickets to random places in the world. Well it’s the second actually…” because well, it sure felt a lot like mental masturbation.

And what’s a bigger form of porn for a broke-ass than pretending you’re in a position to buy a plane ticket to some exotic land?  Seriously, travel is my biggest vice.  Because of the nature of what I do, I occasionally get semi-substantial checks and the hardest thing is to not immediately go online and blow it all on a ticket.  If that doesn’t sound like the action of a junkie than I don’t know what would.

Wanna join in on this ultimate form of broke-ass porn?  Then you should really check out kayak.com/buzz.  Now I know that most of the time you fly, you’ve gotta be some place at a certain time like your nephew’s bar mitzvah or your ex’s gender reassignment celebration. But if you have a job, I’m sure that you also get some vacation days. If you have some flexible time off and you wanna do some traveling, I suggest going to www.kayak.com/buzz. The way it works is that you plug in your nearest airport, the month you want to leave, and the region you want to visit, and it brings up the cheapest flights available. I just plugged in my info and found a roundtrip flight from San Francisco to Madrid for $590! Fuck'.now I’m just teasing myself. If I had the time and money I’d so buy that ticket right now.

    A great website for last minute airfares that even the financially challenged can afford is DealWatch – WebFlyer. Now, it’s not in my best interest to tell this secret because I’ll lose out on all those fabulous fares, but I know how folks forget about things quickly so I’ll spill the beans. Twice a week these guys post all the unsold seats that the airlines can’t sell and they sell them for rock bottom prices. Hell, I’ve flown roundtrip to London for $178! The catch is you have to leave that Thursday or Friday and come back Monday or Tuesday. Not a bad long weekend though. You can find flights all over the world – cheap! They post at midnight Central Time twice a week, once for domestic flights and once for international. I’m not telling you when – you have to see for yourself. So even if you just wanna day dream or plan for that next long weekend, check ’em out!
