Vacation spots team up with retailers for Black Fridayby Tim Manni
Retail stores aren’t the only ones reaping the benefits from all those who come out for the sales on Black Friday. Many popular vacation spots have teamed up with local retailers to offer “shop and stay” packages for serious shoppers.
Eager sale-seekers can cash in on all the deals that Black Friday brings and then retire to their hotel room to catch up on some much needed rest and relaxation after the all-day shopping event.
If you’re looking to escape the cold weather for a few days while you do your holiday shopping, Florida has several shop and stay packages like this one, offered by Silver Sands Factory Stores:
This fall, give yourself a well-deserved break and soak up the gorgeous weather, wonderful accommodations and VIP shopping with the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort “Girlfriend Getaway” package!
Starting at only $139 per person, per night you can enjoy deluxe accommodations, massages, pedicures and shop with a VIP at Silver Sands Factory Stores. As a Sandestin guest you’ll receive a VIP Shopping Bag from Silver Sands which includes special surprises from select designer stores, a FREE Platinum Rewards Coupon Book and a limited edition Donna Burgess print.
But it’s not just the warm-weather locals that are offering these deals. Popular summer vacation destinations along the Delaware shores are also among those offering shop and stay packages. Not only is Delaware tax-free, they have all the popular outlet stores and hotels to attract large crowds.
I want to buy a home, not clothes!
If you’re not in the market to book a quick vacation rental so you can do your holiday shopping, but rather you’re seeking a more long-term living arrangement, homebuying deals can be had on Black Friday as well.
While many homes aren’t for sale over the holiday season, eager sellers are always looking to sell their homes no matter what time of year. And Mary Teresa Fowler of CashBackBids.com writes that sellers might be feeling the Black Friday spirit as well and may offer some added savings.
“If a home buyer finds their dream home on Black Friday, it is perfect timing to suggest a few ‘included’ deals. Often retailers add a bonus item with a Black Friday purchase. Home sellers might be prepared to follow suit – in the spirit of the season.”
Good luck to all of you braving the crowds today, whether on the sunny shores of Florida or in your home towns, and we hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. See you Monday.
