How to get a good vacation deal?

  1. Click on Ebates link and open multiple windows to go to Orbitz, Expedia and Priceline. This step will get you a 1-2% cashback credit just for using Ebates. Sign up for Ebates if you haven't done so.
  2. On each site, do a vacation search by entering your Flight+Hotel+Car query
  3. After sorting for best values, or lowest price, pick out a combination of flights and hotels that you like. 
  4. See if you can get a better hotel deal separately  Visa Signature/Amex Hotels program
  5. Look for a coupon code on retailmenot for Orbitz, Expedia or Priceline
  6. Enter your coupon code, use a good cashback credit card and buy the package.
You really save a lot by combining hotel and flights and you get 1-2% cashback from Ebates and rewards from your credit card and you save some more money by using a coupon code from retailmenot. Always, remember the Big Picture when it comes to saving money.
