Save money on the best carry-ons for your next flight
By Aimee Heckel
One of the most frustrating parts of modern travel is that neat little part where they charge you for your bags. As if those underwear, a change of clothes and that toothpaste you packed are totally optional and an unnecessary extravagance for your trip.
Even if you score a great deal on a ticket, that excitement can quickly be squashed when you realize you aren’t actually done buying your ticket; the costs continue to pile up.
Looking for a way to minimize your costs? Try to squeeze everything you can into your carry-on. (Of course, the liquid limitation makes this an extra challenging.) Many airlines let passengers take a small backpack or purse onboard for free; make sure you check with your airline first to get the size and weight restrictions.
The right carry-on luggage, you can make you feel more in control of your expenses and travel experience.
Here are two carry-ons from Overstock.com that we’d like to take on our next trip, and how to save money on them. You know, so you can afford to pack an extra pair of panties.
THE MOST FUNCTIONAL AND FLEXIBLE:
The Travelon Wheeled Underseat Carry-on with an attachable back-up bag.
This bag is designed to fit under your seat. The attachable bag (aka your new “purse”) attaches to the wheeled carry-on for easy transportation through the airport. We love that this bag has plenty of pockets for organizing, weighs only 10 pounds and is made to last. Pick one up in one of four colors for under $80.
Save money by using one of the Overstock.com coupons and pairing it with a whopping up to 75 percent Cash Back from ShopAtHome.com. You really can’t find a better deal than that. Also, this carry-on has free shipping from Overstock.com.
THE MOST FASHIONABLE:
The Olympia Luggage pink tulip rolling carry-on.
Fashion meets function with this super-versatile carry-on. We obviously love the cute pattern, but we also appreciate the laptop storage pocket and wheels, to help you race to the next concourse.
Save money: This carry-on costs $53 but comes with free shipping from Overstock.com. Read more articles about Overstock.com for more ways to save money on your Overstock purchases. Save big on your airfare and car rentals by taking advantage of these online travel coupons, too.
