There have been some insane travel deals the past few months, but most of them have been for travel now (or in the near future). Now, my buddy Richard Kerr has found an incredible deal on TravelZoo. For $2,000 you get 7 nights in an overwater villa, including all taxes and fees. It also seems to have pretty generous refund rules. The resort appears to be called You and Me. And, it has a pretty awesome looking underwater restaurant (which you get to dine at once for free). Two things […]
Your first instinct might be to bypass this Daily Getaways deal. It’s going to be crazy, it’s essentially like playing “points and miles” lottery. But, it’s still a 20% discount on a hotel stay. For pretty much everyone, that’s a deal you should take 5-10 mins to score this one if you have a few minutes.
The fever of Black Friday deals is well under way and I’m a bit late to the game. However, as I look at the cracked glass on my daughter’s iPad, I found a great deal you may be interested in. Amazon has a 32GB version of the newest iPad on sale today for $249. But, it definitely gets better than that. $249 is a pretty solid price for a new iPad, so if you’re in the market this may be the best price you’ll see during the holiday shopping season. […]
This week’s episode of the NowBoarding podcast features Jennifer Yellin, Deals We Like. She’s a regular on my Miles To Go podcast, sharing great deals with listeners. She’s a fountain of knowledge on Southwest Airlines, AMEX offers and so much more. Apparently, she inherited it from her mom, who is one LEGIT traveler!
Ben Baldanza, the very entertaining CEO of Spirit Airlines, has been replaced. Scott Mayerowitz has the story this morning: Following the tremendous growth and success of Spirit over the last 10 years, the board and I have concluded that this is the right time to implement an orderly succession plan,” Baldanza said in a printed statement released by the Miramar, Florida airline. Robert L. Fornaro, who led discount carrier AirTran before its sale to Southwest Airlines, will take over as CEO immediately. I can’t say this was expected, especially given […]
Las Vegas has plenty of hotel rooms and sometimes it feels like there are as many “deals” as there are rooms. The endless supply of deals and packages can be a bit overwhelming. Suffice it to say if you’re paying full price for a hotel room in Vegas you’re likely leaving money on the table (that you could be spending at the tables). For those of you with Hyatt elite status (or looking for an excuse to acquire it), don’t forget that you have a pretty lucrative discount program at […]
Today’s Daily Getaway offer features discounted Busch Gardens and Sea World tickets. In case you’re not familiar, Daily Getaways are daily deals sponsored by the US Travel Association. Some are better than others, so you need to think about whether you can take full advantage of the offer before buying. For the more popular offers, they will sell out quickly, which means being around right when they go on sale each day at 1:00 pm EDT. Some offers will sell out in hours, some in minutes. It’s also important to be […]
I remember a decade ago before Black Friday was really “Black Friday” heading out one day on the Friday after Thanksgiving and going to Macy’s and Target to grab some door buster special, no idea what. Since then, the closest I’ve gotten is peaking at Amazon on Friday while eating Thanksgiving leftovers. Until today. We’re staying at a resort for Thanksgiving that has a Walmart literally across the street from the end of the driveway just a couple of minutes from the hotel. I had to run over there earlier in the […]
