How I Booked A Cruise Through Expedia

 

Since, I’m a super saving kind of gal, one of my favorite ways to save on booking a cruise, hotel, or flight is through Expedia.

(I am not an Expedia affiliate, this is my personal review, and all opinions are my own)  🙂

This mega search engine allows me to be my own travel agent, and I have the ability to find everything I need such as flights, hotels, cars and super saving perks for booking through them.

I have friends and family who ask me all the time how I book my cruises, and I thought that I would share some screen shots of how I booked my Carnival cruise through Expedia.

Expedia Search Engine

 

 

 

 

Expedia has all the search filters you could possibly need to get you where you need to go.

When you click on Bundle and Save, your prices go down by booking your flight, hotel, and car at once.

Play with the filters, and see what you come up with.

You would be surprised at the additional saving you will find….meaning perks!  Gosh, I love that word.  LOL

Now on to my upcoming cruise to the Bahamas!

 

Cruise Search

 

 

I like to start my search by following the suggestions above, destination and date.

I hit that yellow button, and see what adventures awaits me.

 

 

Notice, the $414 price, (this doesn’t include tax and port fees) for a 5 night Bermuda cruise from NY.

This itinerary has an exclusive offer of up to $1000 on board credit.  I’ve gotten $50-$75 on board credit for cruise packages totaling $1500 – $2500.

Trust me when your cruising every little bit of credit helps.

Another super saving tip, is the sooner you book the better the savings.

Early saver prices are the way to go, plus you can make little deposits per month or wait to make the final payment in the end.

 

 

And finally, it’s worth joining Expedia’s Rewards program.  It’s not much at first, but the more you book through them the better the offers get.

Save those points for each vacation you take.

So, that’s how I’ve booked my last two cruises, and hopefully you will feel confident in booking your own cruise too.

Also, check out my Cruise Ship Life faves on Amazon, and see all the functional accessories, gifts, and more that you can use to enjoy that cruise even more!

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year Super Savers!

 

Happy New Year Everyone!  Can you believe that it’s 2020?

Heck, I remember the year 1999, and yes, I partied to that song by Prince.  (Look it up if you don’t know it)

So, what’s your goals this year, I thought that I would share some of mine.  So read on below:

Going On A Cruise

 

It’s official, I’m going on another Carnival cruise this April to the Bahamas!  It’s my 2nd cruise, and I can’t

wait to experience this once again.

The food, atmosphere, and Carnival employees from the last one was awesome.  In fact, we still keep in

touch with our steward.

Getting Healthier

 

I know, we all say this every year, but I’m 51 years old, and it’s must for me.

Whether it’s getting new fitness equipment, gym shoes, or healthy life style products, I’m in and always

willing to share my opinions.

My favorite recumbent bike that I own and share with everyone is below.

 

Sharing Ways To Save

 

When I started this blog, it was out of necessity that I started to share ways to save with others who were

struggling financially.

I still try my best to share relevant, fun, and yes techie ways to save.

We have come along way with online shopping desktop and mobile cash back apps such as:

Ibotta

Rakuten

Fetch Rewards

Top Cash Back

 

This is a screenshot of my Ibotta account, and I welcome you to join my team and start getting some cash back too!

10 Gifts For Truck Drivers

I have been married to a truck driver for over 26 years.

 

Here are 10 gift ideas if you have a trucker to buy for this holiday season.

 

Create a Gift Basket At The Dollar Tree

 

Truck Driver Gift Basket

 

Every week I stop by The Dollar Tree with my guy, and he always finds a little something for cheap to take with him on the road.

 

This Dashing Dude Basket is a great example of how you could pull together a Trucking All The Way basket.  10-4

 

If you don’t have a Tree near you, you can buy online, and it would still be a budget friendly gift.

 

Personalized Trucker Travel Mug

 

 

You can add a name or his handle, to this laser engraved 16 oz travel mug.

My guy’s CB handle, is “Livewire”, and trust me this name suits him.  🙂

 

Tidify Car Front Seat Organizer

 

 

 

 

Here’s one thing I know about my truck driving man.

His cab is his office, apartment, and entertainment place while he’s on the road.

He has to have a way to safely store his tablet, laptop, phone and other necessities while on the go.

This Tidify car seat is secure, full of pockets, and can easily change over to a back pack and go over your shoulder.

Rexing V1 Wi-Fi Car Dash Cam

 

 

Times have changed on the road, and that’s where a Dash Cam can come to the rescue.

It records parking & moving accidents, angry people, and even your scenic driving scene.

This Rexing Wi-Fi cam also has a mobile app.  Super duper gift!

 

ComfiLife Gel Enhanced Seat Cushion

 

 

My hubby is in his early 50’s, and if your a hauler you need to start using a quality seat cushion as soon as you can.

It helps with the bouncing that you WILL put on your lower back while driving those long miles.

Heck, I own this bad boy cushion too.

My physical therapist actually suggested this particular one, and it has been a blessing.

 

ThisWorx Car Vacuum

 

 

My hubby likes to keep his truck clean and neat.  The ThisWorx Car Vacuum comes in a nice portable pouch, with all cleaning accessories inside.

The reviews are really good on this one, whether your a driver or not.

 

Cutequeen Laptop/Eating Wheel Desk

 

 

This Laptop/Easting Wheel Desk just makes plain sense.  🙂

 

RESTECK- Massager

 

 

 

Your probably going to steal this super gift back.

I personally own several different roller massagers, and I couldn’t move without them.

Again, I like the portable pouch, and wall and car adapter easily packed inside so you can go.   

 

Drive Safe Key Chain

 

If your with a Truck Driver, these are the words that you will always say when they leave.

“Drive Safe”, because you want to them to come back home to you.

This is probably my favorite gift idea because he will always see it on his key chain and remember that I love and appreciate him.

Happy Trucking!

Cyber Monday Savings

Black Friday was fun, but now it’s time to move on to the Cyber Monday Savings!
