You might find a too good to pass up vacation package.
Another way to go about seeking out the best deals is to install a tool into your Internet browser that can alert you when it's found a better price elsewhere.
The browser extension is called Invisible Hand, and it works on Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari.
From getInvisibleHand.com, follow the simple instructions to download the tool to your browser.
Once installed a golden window will pop up at the top of your page if it finds what you're looking for on another website for less money.
