Good Deal to China!

I just found an awesome deal to Beijing from American Airlines. Right now they have Tickets for less than $700 round trip to Beijing from Dallas, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Miami, and Phoenix. Dallas would be a good one. Usually you can find a deal to fly to Dallas. Wow! That's crazy! The time frame for that price range is mid October. I was checking departures on Saturday Oct 17th. Talk about a trip to the other side of the world!  I wish I was free to take advantage. I'd love to see the great wall! That is on my bucket list. :o)

How I almost always get money back on travel

Never book, a hotel, car rental, air, etc without utilizing Ebates! I LOVE Ebates! I get a check from them several times a year and I don't do anything other than what I would normally do to book travel.  If you don't have an Ebates account ( it's totally free ) , I will give a referral at the end of this post. Trust me, you will earn cash back. It is not only for travel, but for basically anything you shop for. There are TONS of stores in their database. I use Ebates for purchases pretty often. I even got back $13 from Turbo Tax!  So, click the link HERE  to get set up and browse around. I believe you receive a $10 bonus after you do $25 worth of shopping within 3 months, which is pretty easy to do.  And they usually give a nice little referral bonus if you refer one of your friends too. ( ehhh HUM, so please use my link ;).  
  Now that you have an Ebates account, you can search the travel section.  Hotel Club is on there. I like using Hotel club because #1 I usually find the cheapest rates on there. #2 You earn cash back through  them also!  The more nights you book, the higher your cash back % is. Then you just rack up funds in your Hotel Club account that you can use to pay for future bookings.  By shopping through Ebates, you earn cash back Then you will also earn cash back Within your hotel club account. Example : Right now Ebates is paying 6% for Hotel Club purchases. When I book Hotel Club, I am earning 7% in that account. So I get to kind of double dip and earn cash back 2 ways! if I spent $100, I would get 6% back in my ebates account and I would get 7% credited into my hotel club account. So basically There's $13 for free.  Tada! Orbitz is the same way with earning money back ( Orbitz bucks ) Orbitz is also on the Ebates site.  So there is a little way to put just a little more jingle back in your pocket when you are booking travel.
