This is it – the week of some of the best deals of the year! There will be a ton of deals for travel, tech, and running this week and I will be doing my best to be all over it. However, I am not as good at this as I would like to be so I definitely advise that, for hotel deals, you check out the awesome Extreme Hotel Deals. They had some amazing stuff last year and I know they will be pumping out the great, unbiased deals for hotels again this year.
