SECRET FLYING DEALS

RESORTPASS — DAY PASS LOCATOR
Planning a staycation this year but you still want to feel like you’re somewhere plush? There’s a new aggregator, Resortpass, that’ll help you find a day pass for a spa at a resort near you. In fact, you can usually buy a day pass to a spa in a resort (with full access) for anywhere from $15-$50. It’s the perfect hack to get a little relaxation at a swanky resort without having to pay a couple hundred bucks for a room. That’s money in your staycation pocket right there.
This is a fairly new service. So, right now, Resortpass is only available in California, Arizona, Florida, Texas, Hawaii, New Mexico, and Tennessee. Surely, it’ll be expanding soon.
