When using Farecrawler they give you the prices for the days you pick and then give you prices and flights for alternative days and give you a price if you pick flights from the alternative. I have tried every combination and have never, never, ever been able to get the price quoted on the first search page or at the top of the page when you select that particular airline. In fact,the prices usually come out costing more than the prices for the exact dates you selected. I know they charge a fee for their service, but even without that, it has always been almost $200 more than what they said it would be for choosing the "Flex flights" not matter the combination.

What gives? Is this a bait and switch? Or does someone have a secret not explained to properly get the flex fares that they advertise after you do a search for your exact dates?
