Check online for top travel rewards credit cards. If you have one, check your points. You may find that you can now combine your points with other travel rewards cards. For example, your Capital One Travel Rewards Mileage Card might get you a free or upgraded ticket, while your American Express will give you access to international lounges...
Low Budget: Shop for deals on flights over the holidays and shop for packaged deals with a hotel or with a rental car for added savings.
No Budget: Look for 2-for-1 airline deals over the holidays. If you don't fly, look for added savings on monthly train and bus passes and ask for discounted pricing. Some states offer deals to students, seniors, etc.
Sky's the Limit: Buy a Comfy Cashmere Scarf
Loro Piana 100% cashmere scarves run about $795 to $1,195 at Neiman Marcus. With matching hats, sweaters, and mittens, you'll be toasty warm for your ski vacation in the Swiss Alps. Cocoa, anyone?
Mid-Range: Discounted Cashmere Scarves
Shop at Macy's, Dillards, The Rack, and other stores and you might find the cost is under $100. Use a coupon code for added savings that might give you an extra $20 off.
Low-Budget: Shop Online or in thrift stores
A great way to find a deal on cashmere is on sites like Ebay or at your local thrift store. Just be cautious. If you find one moth hole, there will likely be others. Even if a scarf has been repaired, it's only a matter of time.
No Budget: Head to NYC for a Pashmina
Pashminas are usually a polyester or cotton version of a luxury scarf. In Manhattan they might run $5 each or you can find them online for $10. If you have a scarf that you've never used and want to regift it, just soak it in Woolite to brighten up the fabric and let it air dry. If it's new, you can gently rub laundry dryer sheets over it to give it a fresh scent before wrapping.
