Discount coupons for air travel can often be obtained from a variety
of sources:

  -  AAA has included dollars-off coupons for travel on USAir and
     United in their membership newsletter in the past.

  -  Some catalogs and magazines, especially those associated with business
     equipment, such as the AT&T phone catalog, have included coupons
     for savings on flights on Continental and Northwest.

  -  Supermarkets in California periodically offer promotions
     providing discount coupons upon purchase of a certain amount of
     groceries. 

  -  Discover card and other credit cards have on occasion included
     discount certificates with the monthly bills. Others offer discount
     certificates for opening an account. See also "Credit Card
     Voucher Offers" above.

  -  A number of banks periodically offer discount coupons for opening
     accounts, usually certificate of deposit accounts (CDs) with some
     minimum balance.  

  -  Computer hardware and software manufacturers are now offering
     coupons for free or cheap companion fares or other discount fares
     with the purchase of their product. Recent offers (1994) include
     Microsoft for software purchases and Compaq for laptop purchases.

The coupons typically have several blackout dates, require a Saturday
night stay, and have a lot of fine print, but are often transferable.
People will often advertise to sell these coupons over the net.

You can also get travel discount coupons in some of the travel
discount books, but you can almost certainly get them for free from
some of the publications listed above. But if you can't find one,
spending $20 to save $50 is probably worth it. Such entertainment
books include 800-513-6000 ($19.95, includes United coupon),
800-445-4137 (Continental coupon), 800-521-9640 ($25, Continental coupon).
