I won Patricia Schultz’s book (1000 Places to See Before You Die ) at the Boston Travel & Adventure Show, and I saw her speak at the New York Times Travel Show! For both events I was able to find free promo codes and saved $47 off the admission fees alone. Her book is also $25 on Amazon, and since I won the giveaway it was free!

It is the last week of January! Have you been enjoying your January so far? This past weekend, I was able to attend the New York Times Travel Show. The New York Times Travel Show is a great event to attend to learn more about travel from speakers and vendors. One of the speakers I met was Patricia Schultz! I won her book 1000 Places to See Before You Die at the Wanderful booth at the Boston Travel & Adventure Show, and was excited to see she was at the New York Times Travel Show.

I also used Patricia’s promo code to go to the New York Times Travel for free, and she also signed my book. For both events I found free promo codes and I saved $47 off the admission fees alone. Since I won her book, I also saved $25 from buying the book on Amazon. I was able to save $72 for taking less than 5 minutes of work for finding promo codes online. I am currently in the process of compiling the videos, photos, and notes from both shows, so stay tuned for my recap and tutorial of how to find free promo codes.
