What’s Invisible Hand? It is a browser extension that gets you the lowest prices on the internet for the items you are shopping for. Even airfare!

How does it do that? Invisible Hand searches the web for the best prices on your specified item. Then it lets you know if a better price is available via a button that “pops up” in your upper tool bar. Simply click on this button, and you will be directly linked to that lower price. This is all you need to do:

  1. Shop! Search for your item via Google, a retailer site or a travel site. Invisible Hand works behind the “scenes” tracking down prices.
  2. Save! Invisible Hand “reports back” with the best price, complete with a link to that price, reviews too if they are available.
  3. Buy! Click on the provided link, and the “best price” purchase is yours for the buying.

That’s it. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to find the best prices with Invisible Hand.

Travel Planning? Let Invisible Hand help. Find not only best fare prices and alternative flight options, but hotels and car prices too. It’s such a handy a tool!

Want to see a visual demonstration of how Invisible Hand works? Click on this link to Invisible Hand Video Demonstration.

Why is there’s no “Invisible Hand” for my search? Invisible Hand doesn’t yet cover all products or every retailer. That being said, Invisible Hand currently supports 647 different retailers and 589 airlines, and it continues to add to this list. Many large retailers already provide a helping hand, including Target, Sears, Toys-R-Us, Best Buy, and Overstock. And with connections to 589 airlines, the odds are, your preferred airline is there too. That’s a lot of savings potentials! Want to know more about Invisible Hand connections? Check out this link for a complete list of Supported Retailers and Airlines.

How do you get Invisible Hand? Download it to your preferred browser. To do this, in the upper right corner of Invisible Hand’s home page, choose your preferred browser. Then click on “Download Now” and you are done. Invisible Hand does everything else!

Is Invisible Hand available worldwide? Sadly, no. It is currently only available in the United States, Great Britain, and Germany.

Want to know more? Here’s a few more features and benefits:

  • It’s free! No membership-required either.
  • Invisible Hand does not “show itself” until it finds a better price.
  • Get real-time prices, not last week’s specials. Prices refresh with each search.
  • It’s Google-useable. Search in Google, and let Invisible Hands search the rest.
  • Hidden prices? No more with Invisible Hand! It finds these too. (U.S. only).

But is Invisible Hand secure to use? Yes! It has passed Mozilla’s safety and security testing. It has also been certified 100% clean by Softpedia. And, it is recommended by Google, also meeting its’ standards. So go on, get your best prices safe and sound.

It only collects URL’s for the retailers and travel sites it is searching. Click on this link if you would like more about Invisible Hands’ Privacy Policy.

Cruising Into Spring

Hey Friend,

Just wanted to let you know that I have relaunched my blog at a whole new site, with a whole new look! Check it out, re-bookmark the new site, and follow me over there. Lots of new posts to read, like this post, Hipmunk – Your Travel Booking Partner.

Hope to see you there!

Link to Cruising Into Spring‘s new and improved look.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ahoy Matey! Have you always dreamed of taking a cruise? Are you a seasoned cruiser, just waiting for that next ship to sail? Either way, you’ll be happy to hear that now might just be THE time to book a cruise.

Celebrity Cruises

Why? Well, it’s simple supply and demand. Lots of ship setting sail into the sunset. Not enough cruisers to fill them up. Cha-ching! Deals all around for the savvy sailor. And that sailor could be you!

Here’s five examples of cruise deals you can take advantage of right now:

  • Royal Caribbean Hot Deals: These sizzling Spring savings will have you cooling off on the sea in no time.
  • Cunard Feel Famous Fares: Feel famous without paying fancy fares. Save as much as $2000 per stateroom on cruises well into the summer.
  • Norwegian Specials and Promotions: Too many to list! Check out their Last Minute Deals and let Norwegian sail you away in April or May.
  • Carnival Quick Getaways: Short on time but long on escape plans? These prices will have you sailing into the sunset for a long weekend getaway.
  • Princess Top Cruise Deals: With deals on cruises from Rome to Vancouver, the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, there’s something to please most every budget minded cruiser.

Princess Cruise

And one bonus deal! Check out Celebrity Cruises! From transatlantic to Bermuda, Alaska and the Caribbean, whether you are looking for a hot or cold adventure, there’s a cool/hot deal at Celebrity.

New to cruising? Here’s five tips to help you set sail in no time:

1. Choose a destination. Where do you want to go? One suggestion is that you have more than one destination. This will give you more choices for finding the best deals. The wider you cast your net, the better your chances are of finding a great cruise price.

Flexible travel plans? Then consider first looking for the best cruise prices, then pick your cruise destination. But be prepared. There are so many cruises to so many destinations that it can be overwhelming for a rookie cruiser to put “the deal” first. But hey, travel is all about the adventure, isn’t it?

2. Establish a realistic budget. Be aware that most cruise lines include all the food you can eat, and various types of entertainment, but not everything is included. Keep a portion of your travel budget set aside for extras such as wine with dinner, shore excursions, and souvenirs. And, if you are flying to your port city, you will need to factor this in as well as a possible hotel night.

On that note: if you are flying to the port city, you should consider arriving a day ahead of your cruise departure date. Ships don’t typically wait for airline delays, especially if you did not book your flights through the cruise line.

3. Determine your ideal travel time. With a little bit of “insider knowledge” you can set sail with a great cruise price. Most cruise destinations have what’s called the shoulder season, and often offer discounts on these dates. So, with your destination and budget in hand, take a look at your travel window and see what lines up with a cruise line’s shoulder season.

Got flexibility? Can travel at the last minute? If so, then pack your bags and sail off with a last minute cruise deal. The ship will sail regardless, and it would rather sail full of people, even if it means selling those remaining cabins at a discount. But it is a bit risky to wait until the last minute as you may not get your preferred cabin or destination. Either way, it could still be a great way to sail away.

4. Pick a cruise line that suits your personality. Huh? Ships have personality? Yes, yes they do! A family with younger kids might prefer a Disney Cruise, but a family with older kids might prefer Royal Caribbean. Princess Cruises are known to be child-friendly. Norwegian Cruise Line tends to be more casual. Upscale your preference? Oceania, Crystal and Regent may be for you.

Choosing your cruise line can be overwhelming, especially if booking it yourself. Consider doing some research before you book. Cruise line forums abound, but one favorite is www.Cruisecritic.com. Take the time to see what others are saying about the cruise line you are considering.

5. Inside view or outside view? Most cruisers don’t spend a lot of time in their cabins, therefore prefer to book the cheapest cabin possible. But be aware that the lowest priced cabins tend to be smaller inside rooms with no view. Need space for the family? Then you might consider splurging for a larger, more expensive cabin. Want to watch sunrises from the privacy of your cabin? Then consider higher deck, outside cabins. But remember: these types of cabins come at a premium.

Also consider your destination when choosing a cabin. Is there something worth splurging on to have that outside view? Some cruises are all about the view, like Alaskan and Mediterranean cruises. Others spend lots of time at sea, where your outside view will often be large expanses of blue.

Time to book it! Now it’s time to pick your cruise! But how? There are so many cruise booking sites to choose from! You can book directly with the cruise lines, book through specialized cruise line travel agents, or book via cruise discounters. Where to book your cruise can be as overwhelming as choosing a cruise line! If you have chosen a specific cruise line, you may want to check their site first for any specific deals, such as those sites discussed at the beginning of this blog post. Otherwise, here are several industry respected sites to get you sailing away:

  • Cruising.org: This easy to use site can help you determine which cruise best suits your style.
  • CruiseVacationGuide.com: This site is chock-full of useful tips to help you pinpoint your “best-fit” cruise.
  • CruiseCritic.com: Not only is this a great site for cruise reviews, it also helps you find your cruise.
  • CaribbeanCruiseDiscounts.com: A Caribbean experience your desire? Find the deals here!
  • CruiseDeals.com: Their motto is ” Better Prices – Exceptional People” to help you find a great cruise price.

CruiseDeals.com

Not looking to cruise right now, but plan to in the future? Some of the best deals are are given to those who book far in advance. Meaning in some cases, a year or more out. It’s all about supply and demand again! As more people book, the prices go up. At least until the month before sailing.

  • Oh no! There’s no “Buy” button! So sorry. This deal is either sold out or no longer available.
  • Oops! You changed your mind after purchase. It happens. You might still be able to cancel your order, but you will need to contact AmazonLocal either by phone or e-mail to do this.
  • Not your deal today. There may be prior deals still available. Look at the bottom of the screen for more deal options for your selected city.

How to use an AmazonLocal Voucher: The voucher is how you will access your deal. Once you make a purchase, AmazonLocal e-mails you the link to your specific deal’s voucher. Don’t lose it! But if you do, that’s ok. Go into your AmazonLocal account and click on “Your Vouchers” to find a list of your purchased vouchers.

Once you are ready to use your voucher, print it and take it with you to the service provider. Or, you can access the voucher through a smartphone, Kindle with Special Offers (more on this below), or other mobile device.

Most vouchers come with an expiration date so be aware of this when you purchase as well as when you want to use it.

Boo! My Location isn’t listed at AmazonLocal. Don’t see your city? Don’t give up hope! AmazonLocal continues to add more locations across the U.S. How can you find out when AmazonLocal has added your location? You can subscribe now to local e-mails for your area and as soon as AmazonLocal adds that area, they will begin sending you the deals.

What will you find at HauteLook? Just the newest, best merchandise for men, women, kids, home and beauty, all at prices up to 75% off retail. Wow! Who knew you could get a Red Carpet worthy look for as much as 75% off!

HauteLook has five main categories of items and services: Women, Beauty, Home, Kids, and Men. Here’s a sampling of offers you might find in each category on any given day:

HauteLook Women

HauteLook Beauty

HauteLook Home

HauteLook Kids

HauteLook Men

And remember: With HauteLook, you get these Red-Hot looks at 50-75% off!

How do they do that? HauteLook is able to offer these fabulous prices through partnerships with fashion and lifestyle brands, suppliers, and service providers. These partnerships enable HauteLook to give its members insider access to the highest quality merchandise and the latest styles at deeply discounted prices.

How does a HauteLook Sales Event work? First, watch for your early morning e-mail invitation announcing the day’s sales event. Or, you can also check “Upcoming Sale Events” for a preview of soon to arrive brands and events, located at the bottom of the home page and each category page.

Then, starting at 8:00am Pacific Time, the “door” is open for business! Just jump on your computer, move that mouse around, click on your fabulous item, and you are off to a Red-Hot deal! Typically HauteLook sales events that start Monday through Thursday run for 48 hours; Friday or Saturday events run until Monday morning. But don’t wait until the last minute! Many items sell out early. These prices are just that good!

Note: Because inventory is offered at such great prices, and are often in high demand, you will only be able to hold an item in your shopping basket for 15 minutes. During that time, no one can add it to their cart. But you may want to act quickly: after an item times out, it returns to inventory. You can add it back into your cart if it is still available by clicking “Add It Again,” though if you really want it, you may not want to take that chance!

Once a sale event is over, that’s it! Since these items are limited inventory, they don’t typically come back up for purchase.

HauteLook

Oh NO! Say it ain’t so! My item’s on hold? Each sales event has a set inventory for sale. When the last available item is placed into someone’s shopping cart, but not yet purchased, that item is placed on hold. If an item is in a shopping cart with no activity for fifteen minutes, it is then “released” back for purchase. So if you really covet that item on hold, just sit tight and wait. It might just become available again.

What’s a HauteLook Independent Sales Event? It’s another way that HauteLook offers its’ members exclusive brands and products at awesome discounts. If you see a “HauteLook Independent Sale Event” label next to an event or product, it means that this item is provided from a carefully chosen supplier, not from the brand itself. Have no fear though! These items and suppliers have been extensively researched to ensure authenticity. So you can rest assured that you are getting the real deal!

Where does HauteLook ship? Currently United States and Canada, but keep checking back. They are looking into how to better serve international customers.

What if your Red-Hot look just isn’t so “Red-Hot” on you? No worries! With HauteLook’s return policy, most items (apparel, footwear and accessories) are returnable within 21 days of shipping. You have two return options:

  • Return for store credit, return shipping fee waived.
  • Return for refund, a return shipping fee of $5.95 deducted from your refund amount. Note: Canadian residents’ refunds have a $10.95 deduction.

Some items are final sales, including Cosmetics & Beauty, Hosiery, Intimates, Swimwear, Vintage, Home Goods, and any “blowout” events marked as final sale.

Need a Red-Hot gift? Then look no further than a HauteLook eGift card. It can be used to purchase almost anything HauteLook offers. eGift cards are available for $25, $50, $75, $100, $250, and $500. And, these eGift cards don’t expire!

5. Are you the “Hostess with the Mostest?” Then Party On! Create Oscar fun of your own and have your friends “compete” for “Oscars.” This can be a fun, inexpensive way to be the “hostess with the mostest” on Oscar night. You can either pick up inexpensive “Oscar” prizes at a local discount store or make your own. And to help you get planning, here’s two party ideas that are sure to keep your guests entertained:

  • Game on! Challenge your guests to make their own Oscar winner picks. Use the fun MyPicks form to create your own ballot or the pre-made Oscar 2012 Ballot; distribute it as your guests arrive and have each one complete their own ballot. At the end of the evening, award an “Oscar” to the most accurate Red Carpet savvy guest!

  • And the Oscar goes to: Create your own list of Oscar categories, complete with space to nominate a guest for each “best of” category. Throughout the evening, announce award winners, complete with an “Oscar.” Here’s a few ideas to start your own Oscar Awards program:
    • Best Dressed – Best Strut – Best Bling: Have a “cat-walk” just like the Red-Carpet! Then award an Oscar to the “Best” in each category.
    • Best Predictions: Pick five top categories and take a quick poll right before the winner is announced. Treat the winner(s) with an Oscar.
    • Best “Acceptance” Speech: Have everyone offer up their best Oscar Acceptance speech.
    • Best Dessert: Ask everyone to bring a special dessert and have a taste-testing “pre-Oscar” event. Will it be “death by chocolate”  or “sunshine salad” for this year’s best tasty treat?
