cashbackYou’ve done the research, you know where you want to go and where you want to stay.  You may even have figured out those exact flights that you want.  The prices are good, not great, and you’d like to save just a bit of money if you can.  Here are a few websites you should visit before you press that “buy” button on your computer.
BiddingForTravel – If you are even considering using Priceline or Hotwire to purchase your rental car, flights, or hotel, this forum will help you figure out what bids have been working for others.  Of course, using Priceline or Hotwire does bring an element of risk, but depending on your plans, the deal you get may be worth it.

FatWallet – There’s a great travel forum on FatWallet where you can learn about many travel deals.  In addition, you can get find exclusive coupons and cash back opportunities.  Examples include 3.5% back from Dollar Rent a Car and up to $13 cash back from American Express travel.

Ebates – Ebates is another cash back site similar to FatWallet.  Cash back examples include 13.5% back from Crowne Plaza and 3.25% from Hotels.com. 

BeFrugal – Like FatWallet and Ebates, BeFrugal offers cash back for many different websites, including Travelocity, Hotwire, and Priceline.

To get the best deal, I recommend that you take a look at all of the sites and compare the offers.  Also keep an eye on the terms and conditions – often these cash back offers can’t be used with other site’s coupons.
