- Airfare/Hotel coupons on Hopper: (updated daily-ish) Hopper always has discount coupons on their main page. Noteworthy discounts: $50 off Play Airlines, $150 off Saudi Arabia Hotels, $75 off flights to Sata Azores, $150 off Marina Del Ray Hotels, $50 off Aer Lingus flights, $200 off Cayman Hotels, $200 off Bermuda hotels, $50 Fiji Airways. $50 off Hyatt Hotels. $60 off Abu Dhabi Hotels. $50 off Aruba Hotels, and more. The full list is on Hopper’s website. Keep in mind that Hopper is an OTA, so don’t expect them to honor the free 24-hour cancellation period, or to have the lowest base fare price. Hopper will try to up-sell you on a lot of extras like “cancel for any reason” policies, if you decide to use Hopper we advise that you decline all of those extras.
- It is common to find Southwest and Alaska Airlines gift-cards for sale at a discount of about -$50 to -$20 off the redeemable value at Costco and Sam’s Club. Before you finalize your booking on either of these airlines, you should check to see if you can save more money by using a gift card.
