Daily deals are hot right now, so it’s only natural that daily deals on vacations would be available too. Well, LivingSocial made the leap and created an attractive new site called LivingSocial Escapes, where each week it features a new collection of authentic trips and getaways.
On the homepage, you’ll find pictures and links to the current deals, which this week include packages for Phoenix, the Caribbean, the Oregon Coast, Brattleboro, VT and more. By clicking on deal, you’ll reveal the price and what the package includes. LivingSocial does a nice job of describing the getaway and any terms or conditions that are involved.
If you like what you see, you can purchase the deal and share with friends through Facebook, Twitter and email. There’s extra incentive to as well, since if three friends also buy the same deal and are referred by you, your getaway will be free. One of the key features I also like is the ability to sign up for email alerts by location. That way if you know where you’d like to go, you can just wait until a deal comes along without having to check the site each day. All in all, it’s a beautifully designed site that should save you some money and help you achieve that work/life balance you so desperately need.
