· Conde Nast Traveler Puts The World on Sale: Right now, Conde Nast Traveler has 32 amazing trips on sale for about 65 percent off the regular price (Make that 30 as the Abu Dhabi and Mexico trips are now sold-out). These trips promise you the dream vacation you've been looking for--whether it be adventure, city or just vegging out on a beach. Aside from giving you a dream trip plotted out by expert trip specialists, the World on Sale also discounts your United airfare by 20 percent and gives you United Club airport lounge access from start to finish. For more info on how these trips came to be, read Wendy Perrin's blog here. To book your trip, don't wait! Do it here.
Note: Conde Nast Traveler (nor HotelChatter) is making any money off of these trips. The point is purely to save you curious trip-seekers some dough.
*PEOPLE: As always, read the fine print before you book. Several flash sale sites require full payment at the time of booking and offer no refunds. Other sites have strict cancellation policies. Be sure to read all of these before you hand over your credit card. Or we will spank you. And not in a "hurt so good" way.
