In this super terrible economy, how far are you willing to go for a good deal on a vacation?
We got a call from a large, reputable, classy hotel chain at a very large amusement park in Florida offering 4 days, 3 nights for $111 total if we just listen to their 2-hour sales pitch about the property. (For some reason my husband thought we could get into trouble for using the names of the hotel and park. I don’t understand why, but I’ll be vague.)
So here’s the trade-off: Save close to $1,000 but have to listen to a 2-hour talk. Also I’m not quite sure what we would do with the kids. They say they have childcare but A. I have never left my kids any where with strangers and B. I sort of think their talk would go faster if my kids were climbing the walls.
So what do you think? Is saving $1,000 worth a two-hour sales pitch? What other craziness would you be willing to put up with to save money on vacations?
