Nice strategy. :P

More and more these days, I find us booking owner-occupied places using Airbnb (as opposed to owner-absent "entire apartments"). We've found some real gems this way. When...

You might want to give AirfareWatchdog (http://www.airfarewatchdog.com/) a try. You select a route and they'll send you emails when they find deals for it.
