Whether via email, public comments, a personal conversation, or comments on Facebook or my blog, I get the exact same objection multiple times a day.
Here is my response to a “No way. I checked and it’s not on sale.” public comment on Facebook.
Some other favorites:
“I just got back from Hawaii and paid over $1500, so I KNOW FOR A FACT this can’t be true.”
“I used to be a travel agent. These prices are LIES!” (oh… the irony.)
“How can it be cheaper to fly to HAWAII than what I paid to go to Omaha?”
Find the deals first.
Go there when you can work your schedule around them.
Just like having car insurance for when you drive, plan ahead and set up a backup plan for when you don’t have the flexibility and advance notice to find a good deal.
That’s The JGOOT Way.
