    Target has some good ones and you can also get 3- and 5-piece sets.

    TJ Maxx and Marshalls have great luggage at great prices. I got a fabulous 29" Diane Von Furstenberg rolling suitcase for $50, it's the big one in the back in the picture below. They have the hard top rolling cases, too. Lots of brands, sizes, colors and styles.

    My only suggestion is to try to find one with 360 degree pivoting wheels.  They don't tip when you change direction, just flow along easily behind you.

    You can often get Samsonite and Swiss bargains at TJX or Marshalls.

    As someone who travels, a lot, my only words of wisdom - get a soft sided one (they are easier to stretch/fit more  in than a hard sided one, and, they don't break/crack as easily).  All bags, regardless of brand (or regardless if you are flying first, business or economy) get treated the same - very rough! They will get thrown about etc, so don't spend an exhorbitant amount on one.  I recommend Samsonite and Swiss though, simply because they have great customer service in the event that you need something repaired under warranty.  This said, if you don't travel much, pretty much all brands are the same.

    I have an older version of this - note the 360 degree wheels.  A must have.  And, they are on sale at Macy's.

    My previous job required travel every week and I agree with Kar that the 360 wheels make a huge difference.  I recently bought new luggage (and then switched jobs to one where I don't travel at all, go figure) and I found the best deal at Sears. 

    Good luck!

    I prefer the soft-sided as well. Most come with the expansion zippers which make life so much easier.
    If you travel a lot, spinning wheels do help. I only travel 4-5 times a year, so the regular rolling suits me fine. Plus, I wanted a suitcase I could recognize easily, I've had far too many black ones that look like every other suitcase on Earth.

    Re: OT-Suitcases

    I appreciate those 360 wheels every time I move my suitcase any distance whatsoever (even to get it through the house after it's packed) no matter how infrequently I travel!  I'd NEVER buy anything with bidirectional wheels.  DH has one (a gift), and the difference in maneuverability is huge.
