Does it work? Booking an airline ticket mid-day on Tuesdays for the best deal

Here’s a travel tip that has always left me wondering…does it really work? From time to time, I’ve heard travel experts claim that the best time to purchase an airline ticket is mid-day on Tuesdays. I recently read this tip again in Conde’ Nast Traveler. Please allow me to share:

“When I purchase airline tickets, I usually do it on a Tuesday between noon and 3 p.m. Airlines tend to announce fare sales on Mondays nights, and other airlines match those sales on Tuesday mornings, explains Rick Seaney, CEO of FareCompare.com.”

Have you tried this method of purchasing airline tickets? If so, please share your experience!
