My friend and I weren’t travelling on a shoestring but we also hated the idea of spending so much just for a place to sleep and shower. By being diligent I managed to snag us a room in a 3 star midtown hotel for $90/night that normally listed for $170 or more.
Guest post alert: One Sunday in March of this year, I was able to ride a wave of oversold flights, getting bumped from flight after flight, in the end collecting $1200 in free travel vouchers from Delta Airlines. This story is about that day, my biggest windfall to date.
