Cider Monday Hotel Sales Roundup — and What Is a Cider Monday, Anyway?!?
I personally never understood what a sale has to do with a certain beverage which is enjoyed at this time of year. Why dedicate a day of sales in honor of apple cider — and why on a Monday after some really, really dark Friday?!?
Anyway, some of the hotel sales of which you might want to consider taking advantage include the following:
Club Carlson is offering 30 percent off select hotel properties throughout the United States, Canada and Latin America now through Sunday, January 31, 2016 with the code CTMONDAY. Log in to your account and use the promotion code when searching to see the deal — but you must book it by 11:59 tonight Central Standard Time.
Book your reservation and save up to 30 percent off of your favorite hotel and resort properties anywhere in the United States, Canada or Latin America — valid for Thursday-Sunday stays of two or more consecutive nights during Sunday, December 20, 2015 through Monday, February 29, 2016 — under the brands of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio. This sale ends on Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at midnight Eastern Standard Time. More information on this sale can be found in this article I wrote on Sunday, November 1, 2015.

There was a time where Black Friday and Cider Monday used to mean exceptional deals; but now those terms are so overused that you have to separate the wheat from the chaff — so to speak — in order to really get a true bargain and significant value for your money.
Do your research and shop wisely — as I advised in this article pertaining to flash sales which occur sporadically throughout the year, you might save money; but you might not get the best deals. Black Friday, Cider Monday and flash sales are designed to panic you into impulse buying — and with the case of sales on room rates, they usually required an advance purchase with policies which do not allow for cancellations or refunds. Tread carefully.
What’s that? It is called Cyber Monday? What in the world is a cyber?!?
Oh, well — I will drink to that. Could someone please pass the apple cider?…
