We are still up in Canada, so I’m just going to get right into our Friday Five’s for this week and then get back outside to work on the in-law’s patio project! We might include some of the fun on our SWS stories, but for now, let’s jump in:
1. Southwest sale
Head on over to Southwest and check out the sale they have going on right now – it’s a good one! Flights start at $49. And just a reminder, if you have a flight that you already booked, check and see if the price went down. If it did, change your flight… to the same flight! Any extra points would be refunded to your account, or if you used cash, you’ll get account credit for the next flight! Usually by the time I’ve taken a flight, I’ll have changed it (to the same flight) a couple times. And at the end of the day, this saves me thousands of points.
2. Southwest Double Points
Southwest is having a targeted promotion right now where you can earn double points on paid flights – just check your account and look under the promotions sections to see if you qualify!
Side note: Southwest’s schedule is opening up through 2019 on May 31st – mark your calendars and book those holiday flights ASAP, because they fill up quickly. And remember, if the price drops, you can always change it 🙂
3. Overcast App
We listen to podcasts a ton, whether it’s in a car or plane, or just while we’re working on home projects. My favorite app for listening to podcasts is the Overcast app. Yup, get outta here Podcast app. Overcast has two settings that I think set it above and beyond – Smart Speed and Voice Boost. Smart Speed basically skips over pauses or silences in the audio to speed up podcasts without actually interfering with your audio experience. And Voice Boost does exactly what it sounds like. We dig it – and would recommend you check it out!
4. Home Depot Memorial Day Sale
5. We have been landscaping like crazy ever since we bought our house, so Home Depot’s Memorial Day sale comes at a great time! Check out the flyer for some sweet discounts on plants, mulch and a bunch of other stuff.
5. The royal wedding
Sarah chiming in here – Okay, so nothing to do with savings or deals, but it’s had me so excited all week. So excited that there was no way it wasn’t going to be included in the Friday Five. I’ve always had a thing for the Royals, where Ian is more in the “Eh, whatever” camp. I keep trying to remind him that you get to watch history unfold, but we’ll see what time he shows up in the morning to watch 😉 Me on the other hand, I’ll be up early with tea and biscuits in hand!
Happy Friday, and don’t forget to set your alarms for tomorrow morning!
