Broke and Bougie BEST Discount Websites Index (i.e. Broke and Bougie Bible)


Alright yall, this is the post where I reveal all my secrets, aka my online shopping spots. This is how I do everything. What am I missing? Where do you find the best deals?


Travel:
  • Hotwire: Hotels, hotel alerts, rental cars (my friend got a $7/day rental car this way, um yes). With hotels, you don't know the name of the hotel, only the stars/amenities/general location, until after you book which is a little sketch but I've always had great luck with this, and it's always been the least expensive (I've done it in Memphis, Boston, Savannah)
  • Kayak: Compares flights/hotels etc between all the big sites (expedia, tripadvisor, etc).  Set Kayak Alerts to e-mail you when your trip's prices go down, plus they show charts of how likely it is that the prices will rise/lower. Amazing.
  • CruiseCompete: Travel Agents vie for your business. Whoever gets you the lowest deal on the cruise you want (includes flight and excursions!) wins. Totally free! My co-worker swears by this, and we are doing it for our cruise in December.
  • Travelzoo: Always tons of good deals on all-inclusive vacays. I also buy baseball tickets here?
  • AirBnB: Stay in people's homes when you vacation- generally half the price of hotels. You can find dog-friendly homes, choose "whole house" options or just "rooms" or "bed and breakfasts". My friends just booked their honeymoon via AirBnB, and Sahra stayed at a B&B in Mexico City via this site too so it's legit internationally!

  7. Great shopping ideas! I'm always looking for a bargain and have had good luck on HauteLook, Air BNB and Hotwire too :). I would add Gap and BR to the list, since they always have 40% off sales. Piperlime is also a good alternative to Nordstrom bc they carry some of the same brands, but they go on sale more often. Take care!
