We've spent more than six years making Thrifty Traveler Premium the best flight deal service on the planet, sending tens of thousands of travelers daily cheap flight alerts and points deals, too. Now, we’re rolling out two new features to make it even better.
Thrifty Traveler Premium members can now see all our deals online! Just log into your Premium account (and bookmark that page!) and you can scan through all the recent deals we've found and sent … whether they're from one of your departure airports or not! You can filter for cash or points & miles deals, set price limits, and even search for specific destinations.
One note: This new hub defaults to showing deals from your selected airports – just click “departure airports” to see more.

This a long-awaited feature that our subscribers have been asking for, and it's here now. We'll continue sending every email alert to members' inboxes – some deals are so time-sensitive that they can disappear within hours. This new deals page should be travelers' new, one-stop shop for all Thrifty Traveler deals.
And a brand new type of deal is on the way: We call them Nerd Alerts.
Nerd alerts are tailor-made for the points and miles aficionados out there who travel … differently. Happy to book within the last few weeks (or even days) if it means you can snag ultra-rare award space like Lufthansa First Class to Europe? Want the heads up on when you can book an Etihad Apartment or Qatar Airways First Class, even if those flights don't touch U.S. soil? Nerd alerts are for you.
Thrifty Traveler Premium members can now opt in to receive Nerd Alerts. Just go to “Settings” and “Deal Filters” in your Premium account to toggle them on. Expect to get the first of these awesome alerts starting next week.
Take a Look at the Flight Deals
Our team of flight deal experts spends all day, every day scouring for the cheapest flights and points alerts to send to Thrifty Traveler Premium members. With our new deal hub, you can see them all in one place.
And we find and send a lot of deals. This is just a small fraction of the alerts we've sent in the last few days.
Get the heads up on all the deals like these with Thrifty Traveler Premium!
We find flight deals from 200-plus airports big and small in the U.S. and Canada – more than any other flight deal service on the market. While Thrifty Traveler Premium members can easily opt to get email alerts from every single one of them, some travelers prefer to receive alerts from just their nearby home airport(s).
No problem: With this new deal hub, travelers can quickly scope out everything we've sent from every airport. Just log into your Premium account, click the “Departure Airports” button and choose “Select All Airports.” You'll even see deals that are not longer available – just to get a sense of some of the recent fare alerts you might have missed.
Just like all the email alerts we send, every deal contains all the instructions and links you need to quickly and easily book your flights on your own. Thrifty Traveler Premium alerts for points and miles deals have in-depth walkthroughs on the best mileage programs to use, credit card points you can transfer, and dates where you can find award availability.
How Our Service Works
But if you're new to Thrifty Traveler or are intrigued by our flight deal alert service, here's a quick primer:
- Thrifty Traveler Premium members can get every single cheap fare and award space alert to use points & miles that we send, including business and first class seats and brand-new Nerd Alerts, plus other perks like one-on-one travel credit card consulting
No matter what you sign up for, you'll get cheap flights on full-service airlines with just one stop – or maybe even nonstop. We're not putting you on day-long flights on budget carriers to find you a cheap price.
Here's how it works:
- Our team uses multiple tools to search all day, every day for the unadvertised flash sales, fare wars, and cheap deals you won't find otherwise.
- When we find one from your home airport, you’ll get an instant email alert with a link to book your flights – or check your deals page!
- All you have to do? Book directly with the airline.
We aren’t a travel agency, and we don’t make the flight deals … we find them. And if you ask us, we find the best, cheapest deals! Whether you near a major U.S. hub or a small regional airport, we've got you covered: We find flight deals from more than 200 U.S. and Canadian airports – and you can choose to get deals from just one or all 200-plus!
We're a tad biased, but we think we offer the world's best flight deal alert service. And now it's getting even better.
This brand-new deals page is your one-stop shop to explore all the amazing deals we're finding for Thrifty Traveler Premium members. And Thrifty Traveler Premium members can now opt in to receive Nerd Alerts for even more incredible (and hard to book) points and miles deals.
