Save on Travel

I have posted money saving tips for your honeymoon before, but this one is super easy! Once you have the location and time picked out you can save a lot of money by booking online through Ebates.

Ebates is a money saving rebate site. You sign up for an account, then use their links to go to your shopping location. They send you a rebate after your purchase. You will also get $5 when you sign upĀ  (you will need to earn $5 in your own rebates before you can cash the extra $5 out). If you are looking for a way to boost your own rebates to get the extra $5 then check out the magazine section. There are rebates for up to 40% off many great wedding magazines. You can find a longer description of how Ebates works at Little People Wealth’s post on how to use ebates.

So how does Ebates save you money on your honeymoon? If you book your hotel through ebates they will give you a cash rebate! Hotel rooms are expensive so this can add up fast. Right now hotels such as Fairmont, Sheraton, W, Holiday Inn, and Westin hotels are offering a 2%-5% rebate. On a $1000 hotel stay you could be saving $20-$50.

If you want to double your savings then you can use Ebates to book your car rental as well and they even have a few air travel sites with rebates. Save even more by purchasing restaurant gift certificates through them (restaurant.com offers 30% back and 50% off at their site so a $50 certificate could cost you as little as $17.50).

After you sign up for an Ebates account click on the “Travel and Vacations” link at the bottom of the left sidebar to see all of the deals. Happy traveling!


I just did a guest post at Crystal and Co on how to save money on your wedding using rebate sites (sites like Mr. Rebates and Ebates). It is a great post to learn how to save that extra little bit (and that extra little bit might be the difference between affording something you want or not!)

If you have not been at Crystal and Co before you are in for a treat! She blogs about parenting (she is the mom of twins), but she also has some great craft tutorials and recipes. When you get some time make sure to go through her tutorials and try a few!

She also does giveaways so make sure you enter them! Right now she is giving away a name puzzle and a gluten and sugar-free cookbook. I am always a fan of blog giveaways because your odds of winning is a lot higher than an offline giveaway. Usually the entry numbers are small and there are multiple ways to enter.

Good luck on the giveaways and be sure to check out the guest post on using rebate sites (like Ebates and Mr. Rebates) as yet another way to save money on your wedding!
