Destination: Tucson, AZ
About this photo: This photo was taken just outside the entrance to the Saguaro National Park in Tucson, Arizona. It had been a chilly day (for Arizona), and it was still a little cloudy. The weather was so unusual for Tucson, but meant a GREAT picture of the snow-capped mountains and saguaro cactus.
Best deal found: Admission to the park was FREE because of National Parks Week!

Destination: Paris
About this photo: Notre-Dame cathedral is one of my favorite places to visit in Paris. It’s centrally located in the heart of the city, very easy to get to by subway and short romantic walk by the Seine river. I got this amazing view of Paris from the top of its towers (be prepared to wait in the long line if you visit during high season).
Best deal found:
Cathedral is free to visit but you’ll pay extra for audioguides, crypt and treasury.

Destination: Oklahoma
About this photo: This is a view of the formal gardens behind the Philmore Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Best deal found: Purely by luck our room for the first night at a Hampton Inn in Oklahoma City was not available to do a large number of people who did not check out on time, we were upgraded to a Hilton Garden Inn nearby and the Hampton Inn picked up the charges. So a free night’s lodging to start our trip!

Destination: Grand Canyon, AZ
About this photo: This picture was taken at Mohave Point on the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
Best deal found: Entrance to the park is $25 per car.

Destination: Santa Monica Pier LA Ca
About this photo: This Pelican was just sitting on the pier and was not afraid, he must be used to the attention.
Best deal found: Free game show audience tickets

Submitted by: Ben H.
Destination: St. John, USVI
About this photo: The picture is taken at a little bay – Jumbie Bay – that overlooks the BVI and world famous Trunk Bay (in this picture). There is only room for 4 jeeps to park, so this small beach usually only has 2 to 4 people on it at a time!
Best deal found: We used our American Express cards and used their “pay with miles” feature. We used our delta sky miles – we didn’t have enough for a free trip – but we flew to the Virgin Islands for just over $200 for two of us! (roundtrip!) Both my wife and I had to have different AMEX accounts – not shared accounts.


Submitted by: Diana B.

About this photo: I took this on my first trip to New York City in March. I was in awe of the Statue of Liberty’s size & meaning and really enjoyed visiting it in person.
Best deal found: he New York City pass, where you can visit 6 popular attractions for $79.
