Get great deals on travel with a new Groupon-like site! Check it out!!!

Thanks to Christy who let me know about the amazing new site! This is a group buying site that reminds me a lot of Groupon for travelers. Certain hotels offers very special deals to fill up their rooms. If enough people sign up, you'll get an even better deal. An example of how it works:

Trump International Beach Resort in Florida

2 nights stay (book multiple packages to stay longer!)
Luxurious accommodations for 2 in Bay View Deluxe Room
Welcome cocktail for 2 upon arrival
Daily Breakfast Buffet for 2 in Neomi’s restaurant
Two 50-minute massages per stay (your choice of Aromatherapy or Swedish)
Complimentary shuttle service to South Beach, Aventura Mall & Shops of Bal Harbour
On public online travel sites, this would run you $884. The tripalertz member price (it's totally free to be a member, just sign up!) is $526. If 65 people book packages, the price gets knocked down to $442. You get to vote on what deals you like the best, and the winner becomes bookable. See site for all of the details!!!

This site is just getting started, but I am so excited about the potential for great deals on weekend getaways (you can never have too many!) Sign up to be a member (no obligation) at!

If you have any great deals to share, please let me know! I really appreciate it. :-)
