Columbus Day was my mom’s birthday, so it’s a day that’s always on my radar.
However, consumers might not be aware that they can save money on Columbus Day travel.
Bargains also are available at sales, although you might want to wait until Black Friday to buy some items. See my article “Look for These Nine Deals in October” for possible October deals and items that are likely to be cheaper at Black Friday sales in November.
Amber Sager, spokeswoman for Offers.com, said you can get great deals for trips for the Columbus Day holiday. Two examples: trips from Seattle to Orlando, about $340 round trip, and Seattle to Las Vegas, about $390 round trip.
