With family spread around the country and a deep love for Gulf Shores condos on the beach, I have become an expert at managing my vacation time to fit my annual travel schedule. Fortunately, several years with the same company has allowed me to build up adequate vacation time; I save personal days for absolute emergencies (then use them at the end of the year before they expire), and I’m lucky enough to rarely need sick days.
This adds up to a fair amount of time off, and though I do like to take a couple lengthy vacations during the year, I tend to spread the rest of the time across several shorter vacations. And to further stretch my time off, I try to make these shorter trips coincide with holidays that I already have off—like the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
This year, not only will I get to save a vacation day, I’ll also save money, thanks to Brett/Robinson’s Memorial Day Bonus deal. Stay one of their Gulf Shores condos on the beach for a minimum of five nights between May 23rd and June 6th and get a free night of lodging plus an extra 20% off. But you only have until April 22nd to take advantage of this deal—hurry up and start planning!
