New Flash Sale Site O' The Day
It seems that Travelocity is now in the daily deal / flash sale business too. It took a while. They were clearly taking their time to think of a great name, and have decided on "Dashing Deals". Nothing like name-choice-by-committee to really create a zinger.
So, what does it do besides tap into the millions-strong Travelocity customer base? Oh, something totally different: “Travelocity’s Dashing Deals program provides customers with deep discounts at great hotels,” said Carl Sparks, President and CEO, Travelocity Global.
Thanks Carl - that's nifty. (Sarcasm is 100% mine)
Oh, and they show you if the room is actually available before you buy. Read more here. Nice job!
With all that going for it, there's no way I'll miss out on signing up for this "me too" "also ran" daily deal. On second thought, I'm sure I'll avoid it.
Keeping track? Here's a complete list of Travel Flash Sale Sites.
