With Hanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and plenty of holiday parties around the corner, everyone is searching for ways to travel for less as they travel more throughout the holiday season.
One excellent way to save some green for Boston drivers, who might be heading out to “the ‘burbs”, down the east coast, or on a road trip to lands far, far away for the holidays – is by signing up for BillShrink.com.
BillShrink is an excellent service for those who want to find the best cell phone carrier, credit card deals, TV & Internet service, and savings & CDs deals year-round – but this time of year (for those who drive) there might be no better service available than their weekly “Gas Stations” Alerts. It’s also free and easy to use, with seemingly few strings attached (they’re pretty transparent with how they operate).
This smart service allows you to fill out some quick questions:
-What are your most frequent destinations? Home address, Other/Work
-What kind of car do you drive?
-How much gas do you get when you fill up?
And then determines the cheapest places for you to fill up and whether it’s financially worth it for you to veer off course as well – on your commute, on that trip to your folks house, or when heading outside of the 128-belt for a holiday party at your bosses’ schwanky house!
Once you fill out the information, they also let you check out the map from Point A to Point B as they load the best gas stations around. Ultimately, BillShrink uses from smartypants math to determine what locations are “best” in every sense of the word, including price and convenience. The only real drawback for Holiday users is you may have to update your route after the holidays, since the email sends you weekly emails of the first route you put in.
If you have any questions about their practices (maybe more so when looking at financial info!) you can check out their “Our Commitment to You” page right here, or as you fill out the information during the registration process, you can also check out their “Why Should You Trust Us” page.
Here’s to Happy Holidays, and lower gas bills along the way!
