Free Flip Camcorder With Hotel Stay

We’ve already established that I’m a big fan of (almost) anything free, but I’m particularly fond of those rare moments when you can get something for free on top of saving money.’s current Hotel Summer Sale certainly fits this bill. Now through September 6, 2010, you can save up to 40 percent off at participating hotels in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Plus, stay four consecutive nights before September 30, and you’ll get a free Flip Ultra™ Camcorder to record all of your favorite vacation memories.  I know some of you may be thinking it would be cheaper to just buy the camcorder yourself, and you’d be right. However, the deal is more than just the free incentive. It’s an affordable four-night getaway from the stresses of everyday life, with an additional perk after you get home.

Though you can save on hotels all over the world, be sure to choose a hotel that is participating in the free camcorder promotion. Enter the coupon code, FLIP6, when you book your room. You’ll receive your camcorder within four to six weeks after your stay. The offer is subject to availability.
