🦃 Apparently, this Thanksgiving will be the busiest for travel in 18 years with nearly 55 million Americans expecting to travel. Keyword there is “expecting…”

May the odds be ever in your favor, friends.

Good morning and welcome back to an exciting week of Daily Drop, the newsletter that is about to blow your mind.

Here’s why:

  • 🌎 FareDrop Black Friday Sale: FREE shirt, free eBook, flight deals, hotel credits, and a Maldives giveaway 😱

  • ✈️ Spirit Airlines Early Black Friday Sale

🌎 FareDrop Black Friday Sale (and a Maldives giveaway)

Last week, I told you that today would be an exciting day. That’s because I’m about to unload a massive batch of excellent news on you.

Starting today, we are launching the FareDrop Black Friday Sale!!

And if you think you know where this is going, I can tell you now that you are DEAD wrong… because this might just be the craziest FareDrop deal yet…

Here’s what’s happening:

Right now, when you sign up for a FareDrop Pro membership, you’ll get the following:

  • 50% discount on an annual subscription

  • Free airport t-shirt

  • Free Lonely Planet eBook

  • $50 hotel credit with Cherry

I am SO excited about this. Not only do I love cheap flight deals and my sexy (a.k.a. nerdy) airport t-shirt, but I am also a long-time fan of Lonely Planet travel guides.

Although… maybe “super fan” would be a better term… I have DOZENS of their books, which I’ve used for years to prepare for my trips.

Here’s proof from my living room yesterday… 👇

Me and my Lonely Planet travel books

The fact that you can get one of those books (in digital form) for free with a FareDrop membership is SO cool. 😎

And to be quite frank, I’m not sure these guys over at FareDrop fully thought this through…

You see, that $50 hotel credit through Cherry kinda pays for this entire $49 cost on its own… 🤫

But if you’re still reluctant, even with the deal of a lifetime and some amazing extra perks, I’ll give you some more inside information…

You know Rakuten? The portal that offers cash back for hundreds of retailers?

Yeah, well, a little birdie told me that FareDrop is now a part of that portal, too…

So you can shave ANOTHER chunk of change off of the sale price in the form of some small cash back (or a hefty chunk of cash back if you use our link to sign up and get $40 off your first Rakuten purchase of $40… 😳).

Need I say more?

So how about you go do that now:

Oh, shoot… did you think that was the exciting news…? Yikes, that must be pretty embarrassing for you... 😬

You see, I haven’t even told you the most exciting part yet…

Because starting today, we are ALSO launching a giveaway for an ultra-luxurious trip to the FREAKING Maldives.

That’s right, baby.

One lucky winner will get the following trip of a lifetime:

  • 6-night stay for two at the Villa Nautica in the Maldives in a 1-bedroom overwater ocean suite

  • All food and drinks that are a part of the all-inclusive package

  • Complimentary transfer to the island

  • Private beach dinner

  • Signature spa treatment

  • Dolphin sunset excursion

  • $3,000 to cover flights and other expenses

Holy crap… in case you weren’t aware, the Maldives is one of the most exciting, beautiful, picturesque destinations in the world.

The reason more people don’t go there is… well… it’s expensive. Like VERY expensive.

In fact, I looked up a 6-night stay at this exact hotel… I’ll let you see for yourself…

But with this trip, you don’t have to worry about flights, hotels, activities, food, transfers, or ANYTHING.

It’s the ultimate chance to experience the trip of a lifetime, and I couldn’t be more excited for whoever wins this.

The other good news is that you can enter to win this giveaway multiple times by completing various tasks on the giveaway page.

So after you go buy your FareDrop membership, click on the pretty button below to enter (FOR FREE) for a chance to win the trip of a lifetime that would otherwise cost you thousands of dollars:

Okay… now I’m done with the exciting news. Sadly, the rest of the newsletter will likely be extremely underwhelming for you.

But I’ll do my best to keep the energy up… 💃

✈️ Spirit Airlines Early Black Friday Sale

Before you run away because of the title of this section, just give me a minute…

If you want to get a head start on some Black Friday travel deals and you happen to be a fan of Spirit Airlines, I’ve got some news to share.

And surprisingly, there are actually some exciting elements to this deal…

Spirit’s “Black & Yellow Friday” Early Access Sale has begun, which offers discounts on everything from Spirit points to cruises and more.

Here is a breakdown of what’s being offered:

  • 40% discount when buying Free Spirit points

  • 25% discount on MGM hotels in Las Vegas (booked through Spirit Vacations)

  • Earn 3,000 bonus Spirit points (and 1 point per dollar) on Spirit Cruises

  • 35% discount on Caesars hotels booked through Spirit Vacations

  • 35% discount on Avis and Budget car rentals (plus 750 bonus Spirit points)

Oddly enough, none of these deals are discounts on actual Spirit flights. Then again, it’s not like you need discounts on their flights, given the already-low cost.

Spirit miles are not the worst currency to have in your pocket, especially if you’re a frequent flier of Spirit.

For example, a nearly 5-hour flight from Detroit to Las Vegas costs as few as 4,000 Spirit points, which you’d easily earn from taking advantage of a couple of the deals mentioned above.

Even if you don’t really care about flying on Spirit or earning Spirit points, the discounts alone could make it worth booking cruises, hotels, or car rentals through Spirit (though I encourage you to make sure it’s the cheapest option).

So if you want to get ahead of the Black Friday rush for your upcoming travel plans, this could be a solid option.

At the same time, I have a strong feeling we’ll be seeing some epic deals over the next week… 😏

Do you think that you’re a good friend? That’s funny, because your friends are missing out on amazing Black Friday travel deals because YOU didn’t refer them to Daily Drop…

Don’t be a bad friend… take one minute and share your referral link with all of your friends and family. We’ll even give you some free swag if you get enough referrals. 🤗

Or copy your unique referral URL:

That’s all for today, friends. Wowza, I get the feeling it’s going to be a busy week with all of the inevitable Black Friday stuff that’s going to happen…

Are you going to sign up for FareDrop's Black Friday deal?

Only Email Recipients can participate in polls.

Have a great day and I’ll see you bright and early tomorrow.

Yours truly ❤️,
