She Shops Around 10: Travel Sites

Published by at 9:23 am under Contests,She Shops Around Podcast,Travel


It’s summer travel time, and who doesn’t love a good bargain? This week we reviewed three different sites that we think of most when we think of travel. We managed to just barely stay within our new 30 minute timeframe! Thanks to all of our forum members for the feedback on that.

Show Notes:

* For some reason I had a case of the “ums” this week. Maybe we should give a prize for whoever counts them all. I think I was distracted by all of the Michael Jackson coverage.
* Angie reviewed our first merchant, Expedia. Are you one of those people who always sings “dot.com” after you say the word “Expedia”? We spent some time talking about the different features of their site including last minute deals and their price guarantees. (SR offers variable rates on completed reservations)
* Tricia gushed about how the Hilton Hotels are her favorite chain. Whether you are looking to book a quick overnight while on the road or a fancy getaway (or a trip to Affiliate Summit!), there is a Hilton hotel that will work for you. And Hilton Honors is one of the best point programs out there. They don’t feature coupons per se, but they do list specials and packages on their site. (SR offers 2% back on completed reservations)
* Cindy took a different route (no pun intended) and reviewed Irv’s Luggage. Whether you are looking for a full set of luggage, a laptop bag, or even travel gifts, Irv’s has some great deals. (SR offers 6% back on purchases plus a number of Irv’s Luggage coupons)
* Announced the winner of last week’s contest and our new contest to win a Sunshine Rewards luggage tag (which is really cool).

Next episode: Back to School. Can it be so soon?
