Black Friday is over — but look out, shoppers, Cyber Monday is nearly here. The long Thanksgiving weekend is well known for great deals on Christmas list items, but it’s also become a marketplace for experiences, and 2017 seems to be the year for hot specials to cool places, Alaska included.
Whether you are an Alaskan searching for the perfect midwinter getaway, or live in the Lower 48 and want to start planning next summer’s family travel adventure, this is time and AKontheGO is the place.
Alaska Airlines knocked it out of the park with Black Friday airfares to places like San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles (gateways to other destinations, by the way) for prices as low as $49/one way. Hit up the Alaska Air website HERE for other deals that must be purchased by November 29, 2017 (yes, restrictions apply, so read carefully).
RavnAlaska, a regional favorite of ours, is offering a Cyber Sale that reduces airfare to places like St. Mary’s, Kotztebue, Valdez, and many other village destinations. Tickets must be purchased by November 30, 2017, and restrictions apply.
Great Alaskan Holidays is offering a discount voucher for RV rentals in June or July, 2018, which can add up to some serious savings. Take to the road next summer, and find out why road tripping the 49th state is so much fun with the family.
Denali Zipline Tours, a high-flying company operating out of charming Talkeetna, has 20% discount certificates available for online bookings (for 2018 adventures). Bringing family up next summer? Taking a trip yourself? This is a great gift to slip inside a stocking.
While Alaska State Parks passes are not technically “on sale,” now is a good time to purchase your 2018 pass in case you are like me and forget until you’ve arrived at the trailhead on January 2 and say “Whoops.” Buy yours online, and remember, each car is $50.
The Aurora Chasers, a duo of incredible photogs who know how to share their expertise with we minions, are offering their first-ever Cyber Sale that ends Monday night. Go on this tour in February 2018 for a special price. You won’t regret it. Trust me.
Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center memberships are available for as little as $99 right now – a great way to support the work of this Portage-based organization. Psst: If you go this winter (and you should), don’t forget to borrow a kicksled and schuss your way around the property instead of driving.
The Alaska Zoo is hosting an online Zoo Lights Cyber Monday sale – get tickets for only $5! Don’t delay, these will go fast and you won’t want to miss one of the coolest outdoor light displays in Alaska for that price.
Happy winter of holiday cheer, friends!
