How To Save Money On Your Spring Break Vacation
Can you believe it’s already time once again for Spring Break vacation?! In less than a month, my family will fly out to spend a week on the beach together, I’m looking forward to the much-needed break and warmer weather! Of course, with summer soon to follow, we have to find ways to save money so that we can also enjoy a long vacation or a few weekend trips during our time off from school. If you follow my blog, then you know how important saving money is to me. I’ve found a money saving travel app that I love!
Let me share with you an easy way that you can save money on your spring break vacation and all year long! It’s a great app that you can download right to your cell phone and the best part is–once you have the app set-up your job is done–you just get to relax and earn cash back. Let me explain…
DOSH app is listed as one of the TOP FREE SHOPPING APPS in the Apple Store!
Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links.
First, download the DOSH app. To do this, visit the Play Store (for Andriod) or the App Store (for Apple). Once you have downloaded the app you will go through the login process which is easy and simple.
Next, link your credit or debit card (you can link several cards and you earn cash back for doing so). You can do this by clicking credit & debit card in the menu.
Don’t worry it’s safe, here is what DOSH says about linking a card:
“Dosh is fully PCI compliant — meaning we adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.”
Once your cards are linked, check out all the ways you can start earning cash back on the app. Look at the nearby offers and online offers.
NO PROMO CODES, NO MAIL-IN REBATES, NO UPC SCANNING, NO PHOTOS OF RECEIPTS
When you make a purchase with your linked cards, DOSH searches for available offers or coupons and automatically redeems the offer and you get CASH BACK. Let me repeat that –AUTOMATICALLY– you don’t have to worry about a thing! I’ve tried many different ways to save but so far, this has been the easiest yet.
Saving Money On Vacation
You might be thinking this is great and all, but how will it save you money on vacation? Let me tell you…
Visit the ‘Travel” section in the app. Search for hotels in the area you’ll be traveling to. Here you will find the most competitive prices available and you will earn cash back on your stay. We did this on a recent road trip and loved it.
Once you arrive at your destination, search for nearby offers in the OFFERS section of the app. Here you will find ways you can earn back at restaurants, stores, and more!

- If you’re visiting someplace cold before you buy winter gear ask friends if they have any you can borrow! We did this for a recent ski trip and we were able to avoid spending a ton of money on clothing and gear.
- Always talk to locals. I’ve found some of the best deals and inexpensive places to visit and eat at because we asked the locals for suggestions.
- Enjoy a picnic at a local park instead of an expensive meal at a restaurant, our family loves doing this!
