Trips to Hawaii, Charleston, even the Kentucky Bourbon Trail are available at this special holiday auction at cut-rate prices


I know you’ve been looking for the perfect gift. Maybe you’re thinking your special someone might like a Shamwow. Or maybe a pair of Miracle Copper Socks and a Tummy Tuck Slimming System. Maybe, but not for Christmas. (What Would Jesus Think?)

No, your Sig O wants something special, something unique, something to look forward to. Something like a trip to the new Four Seasons Resort Lanai in Hawaii or a tasting tour along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. How about serving as the Honorary Duckmaster at the iconic Peabody Hotel in Memphis? 

Wait, you can’t buy that, can you? Nope, not normally. But these are not normal times. And because the Society of American Travel Writers is not your normal group of journalists, photographers and PR pros, they’ve put together a holiday auction of trips just like these and more. That $2300 Lanai trip? Current bid is $700. Bourbon Trail? $225 going for $70. Two nights at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs? $1200 going for $350 right now.

Anyone can bid. Just like Ebay, you can place a proxy bid and let the robot bid up to your maximum price. Want to snag a two-night stay in Southern California? No one has bid on the $850 package yet.

You keep hearing experts say,”don’t buy things, buy experiences.” Here’s your chance to buy first-class trips at a Spirit Airlines prices. But hurry: like all good LTOs, deals this good end December 4.
