Discount sites like Groupon have become a popular way to travel on a dime - or, in these cases, a penny! The discounts offered by these sites are really unbelievable. In some cases, you can save up to seventy percent.
If you're fastidious about checking the sites, you can find deals on lodging, lift tickets and even restaurants. There's a limited time to buy, so when you spot a ski resort destination, you don't have too much time to sit on it.
