Ok, let’s talk shopping, but like on a budget, taking advantage of sales. There are many deals about to happen for Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I’ve pulled a few here in a list.
Travel Tuesday deals
I just learned about this today, apparently, the Tuesday after Cyber Monday is the day travel providers and agencies come together for a national shopping event. You can see this year’s sales on Hopper, a mobile app for travelers. Rumor has it 2021 had about 31% more deals than Cyber Monday and 55% more deals than Black Friday. According to Hopper, the best deals ranged from $1,200 off Nepal and $550 off Barcelona, Spain. Add me on Hopper using code katerynat3m3 and get CA$33 off any hotel. Now we wait to see what the deals will actually be.
Savings on booking platforms
- My favourite hotel search and booking platform booking.com* are offering 30% off as well. Conditions: Travel anytime before December 31, 2023.
- Expedia.com is offering 30% off or more on selected hotels during our Black Friday sale. If you book on the app, you earn double points.

Extra savings tips:
- Aeroplan now has a browser extension that activates anywhere where you can get points, definitely get one of those to rack up some free flight rewards.
- Honey Gold is a browser plugin that will find all available (if available) coupon codes for your shop. If offers are not available the app might offer you rewards which once enough is collected you can cash into gift cards at Amazon. Here is a referral code for Honey.
Group tour savings
- Contiki* offers are up to 25% off, what they are calling the biggest event of the year. The cyber sale runs from November 24th to December 1st. For example, savings for the European Trail tour are $1,043 pp, which is a good chunk of cash to hold on to.
- Gad Adventures is offering a whole bunch of sales for travel before April 30, 2023, and 10% off select trips departing between May 1 and June 30, 2023.
- Intrepid Travel offers up to 25% off trips for 2023 globally and 15% off on a range of local trips.
Xcaret Park, Mexico
I’ve been to this park twice and absolutely loved the experience. You can spend two full days there, but if you have one it is totally worth it. The evening performances are also spectacular. For Black Friday they are offering a $30 USD discount on tours (transportation included) in all parks that offer the service. Use coupon code BLACKF22 on xcaret.com*. Conditions: Valid from November 23rd – November 28th, 2022. HoneyGold works on this site so if you don’t get an additional discount you would still get some rewards points.
Update your photo gear at Henry’s
As usual, some low prices, and some deals on cameras and lenses from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus, and more. Here are the exact offers from Henry’s*:
- Save up to $500 on cameras and up to $450 on lenses
