7 ways to save on your next summer vacation
This is a guest post by Danielle Jones from Freebies For A Cause
It is officially time to start thinking about our vacations! If you are like me, you want to enjoy yourself without spending a lot of money. We have lots of tips that will help you enjoy your time off without breaking the bank!
Check deal sites for vacation discounts
Make sure you scope out sites like Groupon and LivingSocial for not only fantastic all-inclusive travel deals, but also for things to do at your vacation spot. You can often find discounts on local restaurants, museums and even amusement parks at steep discounts. The best part is that ShopAtHome.com will offer an additional 6% cash back from Groupon and 5% cash back from LivingSocial.
Stock up on Restaurant.com gift certificates
Consider driving to your location
Airfare can be expensive and time spent in the airport can be a drag. Instead of taking that one hour flight to your destination, pack the family up in the car and drive to your destination. It will make for fond memories and even save some money.
Save on hotel costs
If you are traveling to a big city, consider staying a few minutes out of town. You wouldn’t believe the savings, just from this simple step. Don’t forget to use ShopAtHome.com for Cash Back on your hotel reservations too!
Split the cost of a house rental
If there is a large group going on vacation, consider splitting the cost of a rental home. It will be far more comfortable and you can cook meals in the house instead of eating out every night.
Bid your price
Make sure you take advantage of naming your own price at Priceline.com. Grabbing discounts on flight, hotel and car rentals is awesome, but what is even better is earning up to 7% cash back while doing it!
Grab an entertainment book
Entertainment books are filled with money saving coupons on local attractions and restaurants. Grab one for the city you will be visiting to save more and earn 17.5% cash back from ShopAtHome.com.
These are just some of the many ways to put more money back in your pocket during vacation.
