They say the U.S. is the most overworked nation in the world… with employees putting in more hours at work, and taking less vacation and less time with friends and family. If you are resolving to change that in 2013, here are a couple of cashback merchants that can help:
Plan a family vacation with Expedia! When you plan ahead you can save up to 30%…or take advantage of one of their last-minute deals! You can save BIG by bundling your flight and hotel at Expedia (up to $525)! Think out of the box: beach vacations, ski trips, overseas travel… or book a cruise!
Have you seen the commercials for the Atlantis resort, on Paradise Island in the Bahamas (you know, rates from $65)? Did you know you can earn 2% cashback when you book through QR? That’s right — plus you’ll receive instant airfare credit of $200-300 depending on length of stay, kids under 12 eat free, AND book by 1/14 for a Taste of Atlantis Pass! (As I type this, it’s 40 degrees in Baton Rouge…and 75 degrees at Atlantis!)
They say the family that plays together, stays together! When’s the last time you enjoyed Family Game Night? Check out AreYouGame.com (4% cashback) for games for the entire family: card games, trivia games, puzzles, dominoes, and dice games! My family’s faves: Tri-Ominos ($7.99), Apples to Apples ($19.99 for the Party Box), Blokus ($21.48), and Scrabble Slam ($4.48)!
If your family prefers a more active style of “play,” Sports Authority (2.5% cashback) has rollerblades, bikes, airsoft guns, bowling equipment, golf gear, and all the clothing and shoes your favorite outdoor sport requires! They have some great sale prices now for after Christmas, and orders of $75 or more ship free!
Do you really want to get away from it all? Then you should think about going camping! Getting back to nature and away from the hustle and bustle of high-tech life can be SO re-energizing! Camping World (4% cashback) is THE camping superstore, with everything from tents, camp stoves, and sleeping bags to RV parts and accessories. Through Sunday they have internet-only Red Hot Deals on over 10,000 items!
Make a nice, outdoor family gathering place with a gazebo, gas grill, fire pit, or new patio set from Sears (1.3% cashback)! Check their Outdoor Living tab for all of these items and more…and when you’re there, click the 50% off and More tab for deep discounts, like this Garden Oasis Highland 10 x 12 ft Gazebo for $349.97 (was $700)!
