This is an IM conversation I had today with a really good buddy of mine:
Him: I hate all airline companies I hope they go out of business!
Me: ummm Why?
Him: I went to buy a plane ticket to SC yesterday – $200 and today it was $350!
Him: Exactly why I am glad if they go out of business! BASTARDS
Me: Did you clear your cookies?
Him: I know what you are talking about but why are you telling me to do this?
Me: Those creeps keep track of when you search for an airfare and then they notice you shopping around on different days. So, those dirtbags know that you need to travel and will jack up your prices!
Him: Holy Sh!t
Me: Do it and then you can tell me I am right
Him: Alright, I am going to do it but you better be right because I am going to spend tons of times trying to guess all my passwords and logins again
Me: I am always right
Him: HOLY SH!T IT WORKED!!!! The fare dropped back down $150 bucks on the same site. You are amazing
Me: More More
Him: You are a genius
Me: More More
Him: You are a handsome genius
I have no idea where I learned this trick but a simple google search confirmed that I can’t be the only one with this knowledge. Don’t worry, he didn’t give me any more praise, but remember anytime you are going to buy something online CLEAR your cookies! Any other simple tricks for those buying items online?
