I’ve been keeping an eye on Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals in San Diego, at major theme parks, and by other travel brands that you might want to hear about.

There are some 2020 deals that I know about, but I can’t publish just yet, so bookmark this page to stay up-to-date.

You can save on tickets, tours, and hotels through my affiliations. If you make purchases through the links in this post, I may be compensated.

Some of these deals below are live NOW.

3. San Diego Zoo & San Diego Zoo Safari Park

All prices for these theme parks are at parity across authorized ticket sellers now, so I don’t have a San Diego Zoo Black Friday deal like I normally do. However, you can still get access to my LOW PRICE. The difference is now that I have to send it to you and keep it unpublished. Here’s how to get it right away. You can use it year-round.

Hotels.com deals are already live. The destinations and hotels are a little random While I do not recommend booking through Expedia for luxury hotels, because the benefits and service I can help you with outweigh any savings, you might be able to find some bargains on moderate and budget hotels.
