Savings Makeover: 4-day Corpus Christi family vacation for $585
Recently, our DealPro Shellie Deringer planned a four-day trip to Corpus Christi for Austin mom Traci Shannon as part of the savings makeover.
For $585, she was able to get a hotel room for $275 using Savings.com coupon on Hotels.com, $130 for dinners using Valpak Mobile, $80 for attractions using the Valpak website (ahead of time) and $100 for gas using the Gasbuddy app.
She was also given an additional $150 contingency money ($38 per day) just in case she went over. If her kids were hungrier than usual or the price of gas suddenly jumped, having that extra padding would be a stress-saver.
The best part about the trip was that it was a staycation, a vacation not too far from home which allowed more days to be spent with family rather than losing days from traveling.
Shellie was able to plan a fun-filled staycation without doing major damage to Traci’s pocketbook. To read more about her vacation tips and the savings makeover, head on over to Saving with Shellie.
