Deep Fried Savings: Travel Discounts for Potato Chip Eaters (No Joke)

You never know where the next travel deal may turn up. In this case, its on a bag of potato chips, Lays Potato chips to be exact.

With its new "Chip Trips" promo, the snack maker is giving away points towards travel coupons with each bag sold.  And you don't need to buy a monster-sized bag to garner big points, sometimes picking specialty flavors will do it. Each bag is worth at least 5 points, with some topping out at 15. Since the coupons kick in at just 5 points on some deals (which could be just one bag of chips), getting a deal seems pretty darn easy.

In the state of Ontario alone,  a whopping 323 facilities and activities being discounted. Here are just a few that caught my eye:

  • 50% off the CN Tower's "Total Tower Experience" package, a savings of $16.50 (10 points). Good for those times when you have out-of-town guests to impress
  • Buy one ticket, get the second for half price at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, a savings of $49 (30 points)
  • Stay one night, get the second one for 50% off. Good for Marriott Hotels or Choice Hotels throughout Ontario and at the Great Wolf Lodge (an indoor water park), a savings of $100 or more (50 points)
  • $25 off hot air balloon rides in several places around the state (20 points)
  • Buy one, get one free adventure tour (white water rafting, ATVing or biking) from Outdoor Adventure (from 5 points)
  • 50% off the cost of a daily parking permit at an Ontario provincial park, savings of $7 (5 points)
Additional savings are available throughout Canada. Head to the ChipTrips site for full information on the promotion.
