I’m usually not impressed by hotel promotions that tout discounted rates. The savings are often compared to the normal room rate and no one pays that. I mean, if you’re just a member of the hotel loyalty program, you can get a discounted price. I’ve found that AAA member rates are even lower. However, I’ll still check out the prices if I have an upcoming stay planned, just in case. Why throw away potentially free money, right? Well, it looks like this current IHG promotion might actually be worth looking into to.
If you plan on flying this summer, both SouthWest and jetBlue have some terrific flash sales going on right now. But you better hurry because prices this great won’t last long at all. In fact, one of the sales ends tonight!
Hello, friends! In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of our posts this week:
Joe wrote about:
- why airline prices drive him crazy. They go up, they go down, and how do you figure out when to finally buy?!?!?!
- the different rules that each bank has when you apply for their reward credit cards.
- some important things to consider before signing up for reward credit cards.
- the summer hotel promotions that are going on this season. If you’re planning to be out of town this summer, take a look!
- what you can do if you think you may miss your connecting flight. Joe totally saved the day for us a couple of weeks ago when we were delayed because of weather.

- the different ways to recognize a travel-related hoax on Facebook (because really, Delta is not giving away free flights and the Disney Cruise Line is not giving away free cruises any time soon).
- the sales both Southwest and JetBlue were offering (these expired on 6/1, So if you still wanted to try to get them, sorry, too late. Better luck next time!).
- a link that she thought would make most Disney and travel fans giggle.
- her #TBT series of their trip to Japan in April 2005, this week with memories of watching Kyoto’s cherry blossoms in the rain (again) and their not uneventful travel to Nagoya.
- post for newbies explained the difference in plugs, outlets and voltage around the world, so if you travel internationally, you can be prepared before you go. Cuz fried electronics are not good.
