Submitted by: Tony H.
Destination: Isla Roatan
Best deal found: This was from my Carnival cruise on the Legend. I paid a year in advance and took the room upgrade guarantee. The ship was clean nice, the staff great and on a scale of 1-10 it was an 8+. My only bad experience was a tropical storm on the last shore day.

Submitted by: Daniel G.
Destination: Bar Harbor, ME
Best deal found: Staying at the Quimby House Inn, a small inn in Bar Harbour for right at $100 a night in the middle of tourist season. Don’t tell anyone but it’s the best deal in town and a super place to get away from the heat in the hot summers of Atlanta.

Submitted by:
John C.
Destination: Ponte Vecchio , Florence, Italy
Best deal found: Clark, we used Delta Sky Miles for business class R/T to Rome Fiumicino. We used Marriott points in Rome at the Grand Flora on the Via Vittorio Veneto. In Florence, we stayed at the Kraft for a very low rate. We got Grand Continental in Siena for $180 per night. A great time was had by all. Clark, you have saved me so much money, I now get antsy when I can’t spend 2 weeks in Europe for less than $2,200 for two adults – between FF miles and Priceline. I use the attached pic as a screensaver. JC

Submitted by: Ryan W.
Destination: Punta Cana
Best deal found: Our trip cost about normal but our friends stayed in an all inclusive resort next to us for a week for $800.00. This is about half of what we paid per person. They were lucky enough to be able to wait till the last minute and book there trip. Here we are on an excursion that did together. The overpaying suckers are on the right.
