Planning A Summer Trip to Alaska? Don’t Leave Home Without The Alaska TourSaver

By Lakshmi:

If you are planning a summer trip to Alaska, you MUST check into the Alaska TourSaver Book and get one or two before departing home.

Why?  Because for $99.95 you can get the Alaska TourSaver Book which is just packed with savings offers which will save you a ton of money in one of America’s most beautiful but expensive states.

The Alaska TourSaver Book is a coupon book that is filled with 115  deals to save you money on all kinds of activities in Alaska including hotels, helicopter tours, rafting, whale watching, etc.  Many of the deals are two for one, which means that for a very expensive helicopter tour, you can get two people to go for one price.  If you buy two books, four can go for the price of two.

You can buy the Alaska TourSaver Book online at https://www.toursaver.com/order/ for $99.95 plus shipping and handling.  Additionally, for those wanting to forgo paper, you can order the TourSaver app on iTunes or GooglePlay for the same price.

We were a family of four traveling to Alaska and each of the activities we wanted to experience added up to an incredibly expensive affair. For example, taking a 4.5 hour glacier tour in Whittier would cost you $119 or $476 for a family of four.  With two TourSaver Books, you would pay only $238, thus recovering the cost of the books with just one activity.  So if a family of four took a road trip from Fairbanks to Seward and did a number of things along the way, here is a sampling of savings they would get with the purchase of two books:

– Get 2 tours on the Riverboat Discovery for free ($119.90 in savings)

– Get two Heli-Hikes in Denali for free ($1050.00 in savings)

– Take two people for free on a spectacular train journey from  Fairbanks to Denali ($272.00 in savings)

– Get two gold mine tours for free ($79.90 in savings)

– Get two ATV adventures in Denali ($210.00 in savings)

and much much more!

So, this is really one of those deals that is not worth debating – you just need to get it!

Upcoming Vacation in a Major US City? Get the Entertainment Book

Entertainment Book

By Lakshmi:

Who?  Anyone who is planning a vacation in the US and wants to save money.

What? An Entertainment Book for the area you are visiting.

How? You can order an Entertainment Book for $35 -$50 depending on the area you are visiting.  Each book is filled with deals on local attractions, restaurants, fast food joints, local and national stores and much more.

You can review a list of books available and preview offers at


Coupons in the book can be used for over a year.

Why?  For many years, our family has purchased Entertainment Books for local savings and recovered the purchase price of the book typically with a single purchase.  We have also gifted these to friends and family.  From buying shoes to saving money at the movies, from getting 50% off or buy one get one free at many attractions, restaurants and events, the book has always provided oodles of savings.  Several years ago, we also got into the habit of purchasing these to help us subsidize our vacations.

Just recently, the $35 books for 2012 went on sale for $5 each and we scooped up two for our upcoming vacation.  Going through the list of things we want to do from jet skiing to parasailing to helicopter tours, the savings are adding up to well over a 1,000 dollars.

At Paupers, we believe in traveling without breaking the bank and for many years the Entertainment Book has been a key enabler on that front.
