No, no animals involved.
My cousin Kim tipped me off to this website last year and yesterday I cashed in!
It takes seconds to go to travelzoo.com and sign up and immediately, you begin receiving update emails about travel discount deals that have just been announced. There are hotels and theater tickets as well as true cheap airline tickets (January round trip to San Diego: $275 including all fees and taxes!).
Who says you can't afford to get away? Go to the Zoo!
