Submitted by: Beckie H
Destination: Alaska-Mendenhall Glacier
Best deal found: This sounds silly, but I found a large, really great photo album that holds 300 4×6 photos in a souvenir shop (in Ketchikan) for only $9.99. I was thrilled!! Best of all, the cover is a map of the state with ALASKA in big letters on the cover. I thought it would be great for my vacation photos. And, it is!!

Submitted by: Joel B.
Destination: Hawaii
Best deal found: My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon in Hawaii. We went on NCL pride of America for 7 days. Most of the shore excursions were very pricy so in Maui we rented a car from enterprise They were the only company that did not charge extra because I am under 25. We got the car at 3:00 in the afternoon and drove to the top of the Haleakala volcano. The next morning we drove the scenic “road to Hana.” It was on the road to Hana that we took the picture that I am submitting. We took the car back at 2:30 so we only had to pay for one day. If we had done these same two things as shore excursions it would have cost just over $500. We spent under $100 on the car, insurance, gas and hawaiian lunch at a road-side stand.
