5 easy ways to stack your travel savings
You have the perfect vacation destination in mind. Perhaps it’s a soul-searching cross-country road trip, an exotic Caribbean cruise or a relaxing beach getaway.
That all sounds great. Now what about the planning?
With hundreds of travel sites and apps, it takes more time than ever to know that you’re getting a good deal, and sometimes the effort just doesn’t match the savings. But what if you could beat the system by stacking your summer travel savings with rewards like Cash Back, or something as simple as confidence in your purchase?
Read on for five easy ways to stack your ravel savings and learn why it’s both rewarding and enjoyable to be a smart shopper!
1. Visit ShopAtHome.com’s Travel Hub for deals and Cash Back
Whether you’re browsing for deals on flights, hotels, or local attractions, think of ShopAtHome.com as the place where your smart shopping begins. We collect and curate the best summer travel deals our partners – including Priceline, Hotels.com and Hilton – have to offer, and then add a Cash Back incentive to help you save more.
The way Cash Back works is simple. You make money every time you shop through us! Simply visit your favorite travel sites like Expedia and Hotels.com through ShopAtHome.com, you’ll then earn either a percentage or a flat dollar amount for each purchase.
Use ShopAtHome.com for your summer travel booking needs and watch your Cash Back – a little “me money” – grow in your account.
2. Search for vacation packages
Trying to book each part of your vacation separately can be very time consuming, so an all-inclusive trip or vacation package might be right for you.
The most typical vacation packages include everything from airfare and rental car to lodging, food and drink, and even tickets to local attractions. These packages exist for most romantic getaways and luxury retreats, and even budget-friendly family trips.
If you’re looking to save time while making the most out of you trip, try booking a vacation package!
3. Stack your loyalty program reward points
If you’re a member of an airline miles or hotel loyalty rewards program, you might want to ask yourself “where can my points take me?” before booking your summer getaway.
Hotels.com, for example, offers a free night for every 10 nights booked while Expedia offers points per every dollar spent. If you’re a frequent flyer, make sure you’re signed up for Southwest’s Rapid Rewards frequent flyer program where the miles add up.
If you don’t have enough points to book a vacation this year, sign up for any of these programs now and start planning next year’s trip!
4. Use Groupon, LivingSocial and others to book entertainment in advance
You’ve booked your flights, rental car and hotel in advance, but what about destination entertainment?
If you’re a fan of sites like Groupon, Living Social and Entertainment Book, consider using them to keep an eye out for deals that will make sense for your trip, including outdoor activities, water parks, local festivals or other area attractions.
Booking through one of these sites in advance will ensure you’re getting the best deal while keeping the family busy on vacation.
5. Reap the rewards long after your vacation ends
The stacking doesn’t stop when your vacation ends, it’s actually when the fun begins. Whether you’ve earned more airline miles or hotel points, you’re well on your way to another savings-stacked vacation.
Plus, by accessing travel deals and discounts using your ShopAtHome.com account, you can watch your Cash Back grow. After your account hits a $20 minimum, we’ll send you a check! Think of it like your own reward.
No matter where you’re headed this summer, we hope you use these tips to save hundreds on your vacation!
