Most times it is cheaper to buy a package, like car and air fare together then ditch the hire car and go with what hire car company you want, if you want to do that and don't like the hire car company you have been assigned.
We have water bottles with belt clips or shoulder straps. And Adrian says cargo shorts are the best ever invention - he carries more in his pockets than we'd ever need in a park.Originally Posted by Vikki, post: 326900, member: 106
This is a HUGE money saving tip! You can get free ice water from any place that sells fountain drinks. I know some complain about the taste of Florida water but it's filtered. You could always bring in those little flavoring packets. We get the free ice water all of the time!Originally Posted by Vikki, post: 326889, member: 106
that's the same problem Chris gets
If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
Winne the Pooh - A A Milne
A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
no matter how close or far apart you may be.
A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
Oh! We also ask for Disney Gift Cards for occasions like birthdays and holidays, and whenever we get "unexpected" money (rebates, ebates, bonuses, etc) we convert them to Disney G/C and tuck them away.
One thing I just started dabbling in...our local grocery store (who also sells fuel) offers "cents off" on your gas when you use your loyalty card. So, for every hundred dollars you spend in the grocery store, you get .10 off their current gas price. Occasionally, they will offer double, triple, or even quadruple gas points on gift cards. When they do this, I purchase Disney gift cards, gift cards to local restaurants we eat at, and department stores we frequent etc.
It's basically like getting an extra bang for your buck. So for instance, we were in charge of purchasing Jon's mom's Christmas present from him and his sisters this year. We'd decided to purchase a "pull-behind trailer" for her riding lawn mower from Home Depot for around $300. His sisters put in their money, we put in ours - then we went to Stop & Shop and purchased a Home Depot G/C in the amount of $300. We purchased the trailer online on Home Depot (through ebates), using the gift card. I found a $10 promo code online, made $9 through ebates, and came out with 1200 gas points (equaling $1.20 off gas up to 30 gallons). Because we'd already budgeted $300 for this particular item - we ended up with a total of $55 in savings...which I then turned around and purchased another $50 Disney G/C (and received another 200 gas points :) ) We did this with LOADS of our gifts this year! Jon bought gas just yesterday for only $1.30/gallon! A word of caution if you try this, gas points DO expire, so make sure you use them!
Yes but none of them have to be searched at security.Originally Posted by Britchick, post: 326982, member: 39
