Use coupon sites like Living Social & Groupon to get deals in your vacation area
Getting a discount has never been easier with sites like Groupon, Living Social and sweetjack. They are great resources for finding deals on everything from restaurants, local attractions, spas and activities.
Many of these sites now have easy to use apps, just log in and use the “current location” option when prompted. If you have a vacation planned start looking in advance for deals as many of them last for months. I have recently seen 3 different festival tickets for purchase at half price in Annapolis.
On my latest trip we went to the beach and decided to drive home via Cape May. I quickly got on these sites and searched for any interesting things we could “buy” and found a whale and dolphin cruise for less than half the regular price. You have to be aware that they often say the coupon doesn’t work for 24 hours and since we were trying to use it hours later I called the tour company directly and they said they would honor it if I came in that day! My motto is – “it never hurts to ask”. We had the best time and the whole family enjoyed something different and seeing so many dolphins. I really wouldn’t have thought of the tour otherwise.
