37% Off a Great Wolf Lodge Stay

Category : entertainment, family, Featured, travel

 photo greatwolflodgeoutside_zps493bd105.pngYay! Groupon Getaways has brought back its special discounts on stays at Great Wolf Lodge. These usually sell out, so check out the deal and pick yours up soon! There are several options to choose from. They include:

$219 for a 1-night stay for 6 in a KidKamp or Wolf Den Suite, Sunday-Thursday

$259 for a 1-night stay for 6 in a KidKamp or Wolf Den Suite, Friday-Saturday

$459 for a 2-night stay for 6 in a Family Suite, check-in Thursday, with a $60 restaurant credit

Now, there is a bit of fine print to consider; you must book your stay by Nov. 15. The deal is only valid for stays from Sept. 22 to Dec. 19, and it’s not valid Nov. 28-29. There is also a daily resort fee of $14.99, which isn’t included in the price. Check out all the details here. One thing I like about Groupon Getaways: If the dates you want aren’t available, they will refund your money, no questions asked.

Save on a Great Wolf Lodge Stay

Category : entertainment, family, Featured, travel

My son’s fifth birthday is coming up, so I’m seriously thinking about picking up this staycation package from LivingSocial: $229 for a one-night stay for six at Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine. With this package, you’ll get a themed Wolf Den or KidKamp Suite, plus six admissions to GWL’s 80,000-square-foot indoor water park and six tickets to their Howlywood XD Theater, a motion-simulated thrill ride and the newest addition to the resort. (This price is valid for stays Sunday through Thursday; you’ll pay $249 for a Friday stay.)

There are several other options for this vacation package, including some for larger groups, but I especially like the last one: $339 for a two-night stay for four people in a Luxury King Suite, plus waterpark admission, late checkout, and pizza, soda, breadsticks and salad. This package is valid for Sunday through Wednesday night stays.

You can combine several vouchers to stay as long as you like. You’ll have until Dec. 20 to complete your stay. The water park will be closed Sept. 16-20, and there are blackout dates of Nov. 22-23. But the best part? You have a full 30 days to get a refund from the date of your purchase – so if no rooms are available on the date you want, you can always back out.

Check out the deal details here. I’m so excited – I think this is going to be a perfect present for my son!

Get Away to Austin on the Cheap

Category : Featured, travel

Need to get out of town, but don’t have the cash to travel too far? Look no further than today’s offer from LivingSocial Escapes: $99 for an overnight stay in Austin’s Arboretum area.

Upon your check-in, you’ll receive a nice welcome bag that includes corkscrew, snacks, local discounts, and more; plus a $20 gift certificate to The Bistro at Courtyard, the hotel’s restaurant. Get ready to enjoy the best of Austin’s nightlife, which is only a short drive south from the hotel. And don’t worry about staying out too late – 2 p.m. checkout is part of your package.

If you’re the type that prefers to stay in the hotel, you’ll enjoy free wi-fi, an indoor pool, recharging stations for iPods and the like, and Revive luxury bedding to sleep in. And of course, you’re only a minute or two from some of the city’s best shopping.

You can buy up to three vouchers for this deal if you wish to extend your stay. Check out the deal details here and start planning your getaway!

The Courtyard is at 9409 Stonelake Blvd.

Save on Hotels and Fuel

Category : Featured, gifts, shopping, travel

Summer vacation time is almost here – and that’s why today’s deal from Mamasource is so appropriate: $37 for a $50 Travelocity Incentives card and a $25 ExxonMobil gift card. In addition to $25 to spend on fuel at any Exxon or Mobil in the country, you’ll receive a $50 gift card to use toward hotel reservations on the Travelocity Incentives website. Note that you must book a stay of at least 2 nights and spend at least $150 pre-discount, so think of this as a coupon rather than a way to get a free hotel stay. ($100 for two nights is still pretty good!)

If you buy this deal, the ExxonMobil gift card will be mailed to you within 4 weeks. Your Travelocity hotel reservations must be booked by Sept. 30. Check the deal details here and get your deal today!

Discount Airline Tickets from Virgin America

Category : Featured, travel

Looking for a cheap ticket to San Francisco? What about Las Vegas? Right now, Gilt City is offering big discounts on flights between DFW and select other cities. To see the offers, click this link and select Dallas as your city. The tickets are good for seating in their Main Cabin Select, which include: free premium television and movies through Virgin America’s Red in-flight entertainment system, extra legroom, food and beverages (including alcoholic beverages), dedicated overhead luggage space, priority check-in, priority boarding and priority access through security. Very nice!

Pricing varies depending on your destination, but the tickets to and from DFW are considered “medium-haul flights.” You’ll pay $1,146 ($573 each) for two round-trip tickets from DFW to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas or San Diego. Pretty sweet deal, especially if you’ve got plans to visit any of these locales anytime soon. Travel must occur between Feb. 29 and June 15.

But here’s a way to make it even sweeter – if you’re new to Gilt City, you’ll receive $50 off this purchase, which means you can get this deal for just $1,096, or $548 each. This is a pretty sweet deal – I just ran a search to price a May flight from DFW to Las Vegas, and just one round-trip Main Cabin Select ticket was $1,231!

Check out the complete deal details here.
