Mobile Working: How to Get Connected and Save Money

Question from DM:

You are planning to travel the US and you need to keep the communication lines open online with a help of an AOL connected laptop. You already have AOL Broadband on your PC. Can AOL Broadband be transferred to the laptop while you’re traveling?

You no longer need to pay AOL monthly fees to keep up your AOL e-mail address. Here are the details.

Transfer your AOL e-mail address to a FREE AOL account that requires NO AOL software.

Then use your laptop with Internet Explorer and Firefox to see the Internet without AOL slowing you down.

And save hundreds of dollars per year that you’re paying to AOL that isn’t really necessary anymore. AOL’s catastrophic member subscription decline is a true indication that AOL was once a valuable product that has now been replaced by a better, free, non-AOL Internet.

When Should I Book My Airline Flights?

Hi Chuck,

Just wanted to ask some advice.
We are limited to traveling during school holidays. Up to now we have always booked our flights as early as possible, but it has always been expensive. Since finding the forum I have seen some really good price offers for this period, some under half what I have paid. Are there always offers or is it better to book early?


I am currently in the Myrtle Beach airport –
I paid $16 round trip to fly here from Detroit

Last week I flew from Detroit to Boulder Colorado for $100 round trip.

The week before that, I flew from Detroit to Orlando for $16 round trip.

As I write this, Spirit Airlines is offering a special airfare from Los Angeles to Guatemala for $18 round trip.

Regretfully, you’re mostly screwed.

The airlines know when school breaks are. They know when travel is most desirable, and like any good business, they charge the most at times of greatest demand and conversely charge the lowest when people are least likely to travel.

Here’s my advice:

To get the best airfares, you need to sign up for the “special deal” notification lists from the airlines, and you have to be ready to pick up and go *when they tell you to go*

If I’m planning to go somewhere and my travel dates are not flexible, I usually sign up for a fare alert service like Travelocity’s farewatcher alert. If a good fare sale pops up I take it, but I rarely wait any longer than 2 weeks before departure to buy airline tickets.

Good luck.
