Yuupon travel deals have been around for a couple of months now. They work similarly to Groupon and offer savings of 50 percent and more over standard hotel, car rental and airline rates. This week the deals go all the way to a 65 percent savings. Similar to Priceline, the name and exact location for many of the the hotels or attractions aren’t revealed until you purchase the deal, although you are given an approximate location and a star rating. Below is a sampling of this week’s Yuupon deals:
1. Las Vegas – One night’s accommodation for two adults Sunday through Thursday in a Club Suite at the Tropicana Resort and Casino on the south end of the Las Vegas Strip for $122 (a $259 value.) The deal also include two tickets to the Las Vegas Mob Experience, a show at the hotel. Book and travel by April 30, 2012.
2. Seattle – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the Westin Seattle in downtown Seattle from $137.50 (a $275 value.) Book and travel by June 3, 2012.
3. Houston – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the four-star Hilton Post Oak in Houston from $110 (a $268 value.) Book at least three days in advance; travel by January 17, 2017.
4. Chicago, downtown – One night’s accommodation for two adults at the sleek and elegant James Hotel on the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago from $153 (a $437 value–a 65 percent savings.) Book at least three days in advance and travel by May 31, 2012.
To take advantage of one of these deals, visit the Yuupon Web site. As with all of these sites, make sure that you read the fine print and restrictions before you give them your credit card number. All of these deals expire at 11:59 p.m. on January 30, 2012 or when they sell out.
