While most people view technology as expensive, they’re missing the point. Technology can be used to make everything more efficient, and that includes personal finances. Yes, you can monitor your bank account, transfer funds, trade stocks and participate in FOREX, but you can also do so much more. Online shopping has grown tremendously in recent years. By shopping online, you not only save time, but money as well.If you’re looking to take a flight this holiday season (we are entering the busiest travel season of the year), consider fine-tuning your ticket search methods. Yes, you can find great deals on the websites managed by airline companies, but you’ll score far better if you look at an aggregator like Orbitz. Using the power of the internet, you can find the lowest price fares, and receive discounts on top of that!
It could be smart to include mobile technology into your search. Using Orbitz’ cell phone app, you’ll be able to look for hot deals while on your commute and be notified (and be able to respond immediately) when a new deal becomes available. Last minute ticket purchases can often be the best deal, as no airline wants to fly an empty seat.
On top of smartphone technology however, the user needs to get smart. By making use of the deepest discounts and best deals available on the web, one can save serious cash. Right now, Orbitz is partnering with Groupon to offer deals including 4x rewards points on Royal Jordanian flights (have you ever enjoyed complimentary Arabic tea? Delicious…), as well as 50% off select hotels.
This holiday season, when you’re considering flying, whether it’s to visit family and friends, or take a solo vacation, make sure to use your finances wisely by tapping into the technology at your fingertips. Technology does indeed cost money, but all investments do. If you want to get the best return on your investment, put your technology to use and tap into the best online deals on offer.
