Our Deal of the Day post has helped many catch up with the news in the travel niche each day and pick up a new opportunity as well. We are thrilled to begin offering daily prizes to our readers “sponsored” “donated” or “presented by” some of the travel industry heavies.
On Monday’s we will concentrate on finding deals, fares, promotions, anything related to American Airlines, their oneworld Partners or AAdvantage partners. Find the best AA or related deal and submit it to the blog comments for a chance to win 2500 AA miles donated by American Airlines. (Only AA, oneworld, and their partner deals will be accepted on Monday’s). All others will be better off submitted on another day.
For Tuesday’s, ExpertFlyer is donating One Year of Premium service for the best overall travel deal submitted. A great mileage run, mistake fare, partner promo, new card sign-up offer, or the special twist you figured out on a deal today. Add it to the comments ection of the post to be eligible to win.
On Wednesday Autoslash.com will be sponsoring the Deal of the Day with a $50 Hertz gift card. Autoslash is the only rental car booking site I know of where you can reserve a car without a deposit and if the rental price drops between making the reservation and picking up your car, you get the lowest price. To top it all off, they’ll email you when ever a price change occurs in your favor.
Thursday’s sponsor is still finishing up their approvals so as a temporary measure, the Frugal Travel Guy will be donating two United Red Carpet Club passes this week, while our last sponsor works out the details. Find a car rental deal, great Ultimate Rewards promo or bonus offer. Maybe you found a great mileage run or mistake fare? The sky is the limit. Find the best Deal of the Day, submit it to us via comments and you could win.
For Friday, the largest online frequent flyer community FlyerTalk.com will be providing merchandise from their online shopping mall. Win a hoodie, set of coffee cups, thermos or other items, all with the Flyertalk logo. This week it is a FlyerTalk hoodie, and an ever popular FlyerTalk luggage tag.
I’d really like to thank our sponsors and those donating to our interactive project. The Frugal Travel Guy blog has always tried to get the deals to you and now with the help of you and our sponsors, more deals will find the way to your computer via the Deal of the Day post on Frugal Travel Guy and the comments you submit.
So today we start with American Airlines related deals only this afternoon. Submit your Deal of the Day find in the comments section in either this post or on the Deal of the Day post this afternoon. To be eligible to win your comment must be submitted by 11:59pm EDT tonight. Please also include your local airport in your comment.
You can start submitting tips for Tuesday’s post in the comment section of tomorrow’s post or on tomorrow’s the Deal of the Day post Tuesday afternoon.
