In case you didn’t know it. I’m a numbers guy. My co-author and I wrote a book about cracking Google’s algorithm with paid advertising (Google AdWords for Dummies), and after that, Google hired us to write two books for them to give to their advertisers. Now, I use algorithms to find mistake fares the same way.
But rather than writing a book about how to calculate the value of a flight – I do that math behind the scenes with every trip I share on JGOOT.
I analyze over 20,000 flight options per day, and rule out the 99.9% that are too expensive. In a nutshell, if you can’t find it on JGOOT.com, that’s because I already analyzed the dates you’re thinking of – and ruled them out as “too expensive to pay cash for”.
- Use this site to watch for ridiculously affordable trips that you can work your schedule around whenever possible. (Which should be about 1/2 the time.)
- Don’t waste time searching for a good fare for “need to go to a specific place at a specific time” trips. They will almost always be too expensive and you’d be FAR better off just paying with points.
- Don’t have points? You should. Download this free quick-start guide & I’ll show you how.
* Wondering why I bother with mistake fares if I can travel on points for practically nothing? Here is the math on why just about every fare I publish on JGOOT is a better deal than paying with points.
