Q. Today's newsletter lists a fare from Calgary to Toronto for $199 round-trip, but I can only find fares for $300 round-trip and higher. My dates fall between the sale period, so what am I doing wrong?

A. One important thing to keep in mind: Sale fares aren't necessarily available on every day of the week during a given sale period. A certain sale may begin on November 2 and end on November 12, but the actual sale fares may only be available for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
