When you go online shopping today, think beyond Christmas. Consider your winter get-away, you know, the vacation you take to get away from the snow you so fervently hope falls for the holiday. Big box retailers aren't the only companies chasing your cyber dollars this Cyber Monday. Airlines and resorts want in on the frenzy.
Among the deals:
Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas (shown above) is giving $300 airline credits to those booking a six-night stay, lesser credits for fewer nights, for their Cyber Monday deal (which actually began on Black Friday).
Southwest Airlines Vacations is offering a third night free and up to $175 in discounts. Click here for details.
At Priceline.com, you can save as much as 35 percent on a trip to Vegas. Details here or go to the homepage and see the big Cyber Monday box.
The members-only Jetsetter.com is offering new flash sales every hour at prices 40-50 percent off until 8 p.m. our time. Each vacation will be available for only 24-hours, or while availability lasts. Membership is free. Details here.
There are many, many more offers. Too many, in fact, to list. My advice is to go online, check with places you've been thinking about booking and see what they have to offer. Gotta go now ... I need to look for deals on a rental car for my upcoming trip to Hawaii.
