Fly Premium for the Price of Economy and Stay in a B&B for a Fraction

Hope everyone in the path of California’s storm of the decade is safe and well.

I am scheduled to return from my two months in Buenos Aires this weekend and looking forward to writing all about it.

Meanwhile, enjoy a few travel deals for the weekend.


Virgin America

The sale is back – you can save 50% on First Class and Main Cabin Select fares with promo code MERRY50.


Main Cabin Select fares often cost about double the price of economy fares, so this is an opportunity to “upgrade” without much additional cost.

Book by tomorrow (December 14) and fly December 19 to January 2. free $30 gift card has been running gift card specials throughout the holidays but this one is the best I’ve seen recently.


Receive a $30 gift card when you buy a $100 gift card (a 30% bonus) using promo code JINGLE. Alternatively, receive a $150 gift card when you buy a $450 gift card (a 33% bonus) using promo code BELLS.

Buying multiple cards in smaller denominations also works as long as your total purchase meets the threshold.

To make a good deal great, also offers “Hot Deals” – specials that change weekly. You can search Hot Deals by location here (just ignore the email signup field if you don’t want to sign up).

Among this week’s offerings is the Cabernet House in California’s Wine Country. The regular rate is $378 but the Hot Deals rate is $129 – a 66% discount. Combine it with the gift card deal and a $378 stay ends up costing under $100!

Cabernet House B&B

And if you’re still shopping for gifts, this makes a nice gift for those who like B&Bs as you can customize the gift card with a personal photo.

If you have your eye on a specific property, be sure to check first that it accepts gift cards. (Check here.)


Air Canada giveaway

Air Canada is running a “Giftmassive Giveaway” through Christmas Eve. Prizes range from percent-off discounts to free flights.

Try your luck here. It’s quick and doesn’t require an Air Canada account. I played and won a 20% discount code. Perhaps I will try again with a different email address. 😉

Finally, don’t forget to check the Travel Deals and Other Deals pages (on the yellow sticky note at the top right corner) when you visit! Sometimes I find a nice deal but don’t have time to write it up so I will just add it to one of those pages.

Enjoy the remaining weekend.
