Great Deal on Trip!

May 8th, 2016 at 09:40 am

I booked the June trip to Ft. Lauderdale yesterday. My son and I are going to visit my older two kids and my grandkids. I got two roundtrip plane tickets for $162! We can only take a small personal item and did not get to choose seats. It's a fairly short flight,so I can handle a middle seat if need be. My son is 17, so it also doesn't matter if we can't sit together. I will ship down a small box of clothes a couple of days in advance. I got the rental discount through my daughter and a full size car for the week was $117. So, the grand total is $279! I am also scheduling four or five restaurant mystery shops so most of the food will be reimbursed. I also have a place to stay, so no hotel. I am so pleased with the total! Of course, I probably need to add $40-50 for shipping the clothes both ways, but I can get at least $12 back with a post office mystery shop.

I am overwhelmed with a ton of editing today, but again, my bank account is looking much better. Of course, I will be very happy when I have time off from both editing and school come mid-June! Excuse any typos, my keyboard is having issues. Happy Mother's Day.

    What mystery shop company do you use? I am bored by the ones offered by my current company.

    The deals sound awesome. Check out the USPS flat rate boxes for shipping your clothes. It's priority mailing and you stuff the box full for one price. I have used this shipping option a lot lately and have been quite satisfied.

    Have a wonderful vacation and enjoy your kids and grand babies.

    @Kiki, There are over 200 companies. I regularly shop with about twenty. Since I am unfamiliar with your experience I would suggest the following who have shops throughout the country: A Closer Look, Market Force, Best Mark, Trendsource, Techology Store Shopper, and Maritz
