Hot Summer Savings Tips

Hot Summer Savings Tips
Tools & Tips

While summer is the perfect time to fire up the barbecue or enjoy a spur-of-the-moment vacation, it can also be the hardest season to score deals. Because these months are the peak time for many resorts and airlines, you’re less likely to find discounted products and services. But summer doesn’t have to be expensive; in fact, it can be frugal and fun when you use these clever ways to save!


  • Comparison shop online. Travel websites are the first place to check before buying plane or hotel tickets this summer, especially if you plan to travel last-minute.
  • Time rentals right. Need a car while you’re vacationing out-of-town? Reserve it mid-week and you’ll probably get a better price. Not avoiding the weekend rush can cost you as much as 10% more. Also consider prepaying for the rental; one major car rental company advertises up to 35% off rates when you pay at the time of reservation.
  • Be amused for less. When you show up at the gate of an amusement or water park, you’ll have to pay top dollar for admission. Plan ahead and save by buying your tickets elsewhere. Local grocery stores, bulk discount stores and fast food chains often offer discounted ticket prices for local attractions. Keep your eyes peeled for newspaper and magazine deals too.  
  • Roll a strike. Kids under 16 can get a voucher for two free games of bowling at numerous locations on any summer day at http://www.kidsbowlfree.com/.
  • Cut the price at the pump. Fuel up for less with GasBuddy.com by checking local gas prices. Reduce that cost even more by carpooling with friends or using public transportation.  If you do drive, be sure your tires are properly inflated to reduce friction and increase gas mileage by up to 3%. Keeping your vehicle tuned up and using the correct grade of motor oil will improve efficiency too.  
  • AAA.com Membership Discounts. Several of the above mentioned savings are offered with a AAA Membership, from shopping, to dining, hotel accommodations, movies, amusement parks, car repairs, and much more.  For more information about benefits, go to http://goo.gl/gwmvB9.
