    Sometimes the prices are a lot cheaper if you do not fly on the weekend. There have been times we flew a day early and even with the cost of an extra night's stay and food it is less expensive than flying on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. When we went down last year in December, it was 60,000(one way) points to fly on Friday or Saturday and only 35,700 on Thursday.

    That's happened to us many times. We are flying home from Aruba on a Thursday this year, for that reason.

    since we have now turned to the topic of airfare, I am moving this to AirFares/Airlines.

    Sorry, Andrea. I realized that we'd gone off topic after I'd posted. Good thing that we have you to keep us on track

    sorry..........at one point I thought I was going to divide it all up, but I gave it a chance to let it run its course.
    the last part is airfare/airlines, so that is its final destination.

    Well 21 days to Aruba from today. We just got an email from Hans that he had a cancellation, so our vacation is all set with Tropic. Yea Hans and Tropic car rental! As we mentioned, we got a great price on a flight to Aruba $169.00 non-stop plus taxes =$205. They had no deals on a round trip, over $1,200.00 at that time. But still no great deals for flight home. Almost 4x's the charge compared to flight to Aruba. We are still holding out by watching the various flight checking Apps. Black Pearl is confirmed and we are doing the Aruba Bob snorkel trip that many of you guys recommended. Trip is confirmed too. We are sticking with Aruba Beach Club and are ready to take on the papala hogs for a front row view of that beautiful turquoise water. Got out "To Go Things Bow" started to add things that we need as we think of them. Today is cold in N.J and we are waiting for a mid-day snow storm. Makes Aruba seem that much better. Feeling the need from more trip reports. So please don't forget about us back here in the cold. We will keep you posted on return flight.

    Make sure to watch seat availability and not just price. I guess a couple extra days here won't be too bad if you can't get a flight. It will beat being in NJ. Hoping you don't get much snow or ice.
