Sandy Lockleer recently spent $1,132 on roundtrip airline tickets for himself and his wife to fly from Seattle to Alaska in August. Then, the other day, the price dropped to $952.

Out of luck? Not quite.

After a quick call to the airline, Lockleer ended up with a $180 credit, good on any Alaska Airlines flight in the next year.

"It took about 10 minutes to do the whole thing. That's a pretty good savings," he said. "Any time you can get money from an airline, you're doing good."

Lockleer took advantage of a little-known provision in the world of airline tickets that allows passengers to rebook their exact same flights if the price drops after they make a purchase.

    Good to know but need to make sure all airlines have a policy like this. With the reputation of United and Delta - am sure they are going to challenge you on this one.
