JetSetter (not a referral link, feel free to leave yours in the comments) is a website that offers high-end(ish) travel deals at a discount.
$25 off a $250 gift card
$75 off a $500 gift card
$200 off a $1000 gift card
$500 off a $2000 gift card
$1500 off a $5000 gift card
So you can pre-purchase discounted travel at a discount.
As Jared writes, “You can, of course, buy yourself a gift card, meaning that you can save up to 30% off everything on Jetsetter forever. Not too bad, considering that their flash sales are already round 30% off.”
Of course ‘forever’ applies to the life of JetSetter (I understand they’ve been looking to unload the site) and the life of the gift cards (which are regulated by various state laws, but in my experience linked to above I’ve considered them to play slippery with terms and conditions). So I’m not taking the plunge. But those who do can certainly get some very good deals.
