New Flash Sale Site Offers Good Deals
Eversave is the latest entrant into the ever-expanding field of flash sale outlets. It follows the coupon/voucher business model: You buy a voucher valid over an extended period from the flash sale site, but you then have to make your reservation through the hotel. And, obviously, highly discounted reservations are "subject to availability."
Eversave's current promotion features a three-night package at the all-inclusive Barcelo Tucancun resort for $249 plus taxes and fees. That covers two adults plus one or two children under age five in one room. Space for up to four in the same room is available at extra cost. And you can add additional nights for $198 per night, double.
Eversave says that the "value" of this deal is $747, and that seems about right. Expedia lists the regular price at $269 per night.
The Barcelo Tucancun earns a TripAdvisor rating of 3½ stars, with a plurality of "very good" entries and quite a few "excellent" ones, but also about a third are lower.
This voucher is available to buy through September 17, for stays through August 31, 2012, subject to holiday blackouts.
We will add Eversave to the list of agencies we're following in our regular checking of flash sale deals.
