We didn’t really have any special plans this summer. We were just going to hit the pool, take a couple of trips to the beach, and then have a bunch of play dates with friends and family. Well, we ended up going on a very last minute trip to Kauai (less than a week from the time we booked the flight to the time we landed in Lihue), and if that’s not crazy enough, we booked our lodging through eBay.
Yes, the site where you can score sold out holiday toys or hard-to-find Halloween costumes also has awesome travel deals. How awesome? Let’s just say that we saved about 75% on our stay in a roomy two-bedroom, two-bath condo in a pretty posh resort.
I know, who books rooms through eBay? Well, it looks like a lot of folks do, and I was just as surprised as you–just make sure to do your homework on the seller before pulling the trigger. They seriously sell everything under the sun, which leads me to the question: what’s the coolest thing you ever scored on eBay? Share your finds in the comments below.
