Flash sales are fun, but the barrage of email alerts is not. Introducing a one-stop shop for all those timed sales.
What it does: Aggregates the growing number of flash sale and private member sites into one search tool. View all the current sales on one world map and sort by the sale provider, destination or how much you want to spend a night.
What's hot: Besides being an incredible time-saver and pointing out deals of as much as 80% off hotel and resort rack rates around the world, it pulls from 14 flash sale sites and places those you might be familiar with, such as Jetsetter, SniqueAway and Groupon Getaways, side by side with those you might not have heard about, such as TripAlertz, Yuupon or Voyage Privé. Note: When you're ready to book, you must log in with a membership email and password. Registration is free.
What's not: I love flash sale sites and their big, bright property photos that make you think, "Wow, look at that place! I just have to go." EveryLodge's home page is map-based, so you must click on a location before you get to the pretty pics. Trust me, don't get turned off by a blah home page before you dig deeper. You can also click over to "List" view and see a lineup of sales with little pics and pertinent sales info.
