Bragging is a Sin
Some people like to say, "I hate to brag but.........." And then follow it up with bragging. Not me, no sir! I'll flat out brag. Guess where I am going? Hahahaha, like you need a guess. Den and I are going to Vegas. Now wanna know the cool part? I got our flights and bags, the car and four nights hotel for $536.13. See I should be bragging!
Here are a few tips to get everything for your trip cheaper! Get a credit card with miles/points. We have our normal Bank of America card that we use for everything. And as you know, that money goes for Christmas. But we also have a Spirit Master card. We signed up for it the last time we were going to Vegas. We had enough points just from signing up for the card and making a small charge every month to get our flight to Vegas for $35 and that was with tax. We didn't have enough points for the return trip but since I used my Spirit Master card for the flights back we now have enough points for almost two round trip tickets. The only draw back to this card is there is a $70 a year fee. I haven't paid a credit card fee in YEARS! That said, we are going to pay it. At least for this year. We will see after that. But it is cheaper to pay the fee than it is for the airline tickets.
For the car, do a search to compare different car rental companies. Then go to the ones that you like and sign up for their emails. I can usually get the car cheaper through the company website. And before you book the car, go to your credit card company's website or My Points and see if you can get points or cash back.
And last but not least, sign up for every rewards card when you are in Vegas and USE THEM! We earn tons of free food and I scored 3 free nights for this trip.
We all know these tricks but just remember to stack these frugal hacks to save even more.
