Thanks for 5 Great Years

Happy birthday to us!

Today marks our 5th anniversary and what an amazing journey this has been. We never expected the site to amount to anything—when we first started this 5 years ago, it was for our friends and family to stop bugging us about deals. Here are some accomplishments in the last 5 years that we are proud of:

  • Over 14,000 deal posts
  • Consistently post at least one daily deal for each of our 12 coverage cities. How many sites [that aren’t backed by a multi-billion dollar company] give you at least one deal a day?
  • Launched Fare Deal Alert to cover 10 additional cities
  • Currently in the process of beta testing The Flight Deal Canada

Most of all, we’re proud yet humbled by how generous you have been in sharing the deals with your friends and family. We are continually amazed and eternally grateful for all the support we receive. Here are a couple of anecdotes that make us feel loved:

  1. We were flying back from Beijing to Chicago last year. As we were deplaning, we overheard a gentleman a few rows ahead of us was telling his seatmate about us, completely unsolicited. We wanted to thank him but weren’t able to find him afterwards. So if you are reading this, thank you!
  2. A team member and her significant other were having dinner with his colleague. They were talking travel and the different places they’d like to visit; his colleague started talking about this “awesome flight website” that he started subscribing to that had really cheap deals. He pulled out his phone to show us the site and it was The Flight Deal!

There are so many more stories like these, where you go out of your way to help us grow and succeed—that is by far the most rewarding aspect of what we do.

Thank you so much! We truly appreciate it more than you know.


To celebrate, we look forward to meeting everyone who signed up for our meet-and-greet in NYC tomorrow. We’ll have free appetizers, snacks, and a giveaway or two. We’re looking forward to talking all things travel (or not) with everyone…with a drink in hand, of course.

It’s been an amazing 5 years for us. Thanks again. Onward to many, many more!

    I have told so many people about your newsletter. It’s terrific… especially for us retired folks. Now if you can figure out how we can get a deal on travel insurance, you’ll double or triple your readership, and do us an amazing service.
    Congratulations and keep up the outstanding work!

    Folks, thanks a lot, I’ve managed to really fulfill my love of travelling due to this site (and others I’ve found after discovering this one) travelling doesn’t have to be as pricey as it seems.

    Keep up the great work, I’m always gonna be keeping up with the site and I recommend deals you post to many people.

    Congratulations! I’ve been trying to figure out a way to message yall for a while now. Anyways, thanks for all the deals to great places for us to explore!

    I also want to thank you sincerely for NOT posting/including the dirt cheap airlines such as spirit and frontier…they just get in the way 😉

    Also, I like the fact that I can ALWAYS find your deals. Unlike other sites (airfarewatchdog amongst others) that publish cheap flight but I can never actually find them
