Three great travel deals for spring break

Find some sun this spring break and save big on these offers from United, Southwest, and JetBlue to Las Vegas, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

The Petit Piton and its twin, Gros Piton, dominate the shoreline of St. Lucia. A trip to St. Lucia is one of the spring break travel deals offered by JetBlue.

With Spring Break fast approaching, we at Brad's Deals can't wait to escape the bitter winter we've had and hit the beach.  If you're like me, you'd like the best deal possible on that escape from the cold.  Here are some good options for a budget-friendly Spring Break:

1.  Las Vegas

United Vacations is running an excellent sale on Las Vegas, offering you up to 50% off your flights and hotels.  And, if you travel by 3/31, you'll get 7,500 United miles as a bonus!

If you're not into packages, I'd recommend Hotwire to booking your room.  You won't know which one it is until the booking is complete, but you'll know the general area and "niceness" of the hotel before you buy.  

2.  Mexico

Both coasts of Mexico are always popular Spring Break spots, and Southwest Vacations has you covered.  Stay at the brand-new Hyatt all-inclusive properties in Cancun or Riviera Maya up to 55% off, and as an added bonus, sign up for their newsletter for an additional $50 off (that's a Brad's Deals exclusive, by the way).

3.  Caribbean

JetBlue hosts some of the best deals for the Caribbean (and they're currently hosting a two-day sale).  They offer many flights to some of the smaller islands, like St. Maartin and St. Lucia, for really escaping the crowds of the Bahamas and Jamaica (though they fly there too).  With a hubs in San Juan and Fort Lauderdale, getting to the beach is very easy and affordable.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
