Great Discounts from Hotels Etc. Bring Fun Back to a Flagging Economy

Consumer goods are increasing, Paychecks remain the same.

Atlanta, GA, September 18, 2008 --( Trapped in a world of rapidly rising prices and inadequate paychecks, consumers are quickly finding that fun has too heavy a price tag. Hotels Etc. is making fun affordable again by offering its members access to thousands of savings on hotels, car rentals, event tickets, entertainment discounts and everyday purchases worldwide.

“In today’s economy, everything is increasing but your paycheck,” states Hotels Etc. CEO Shawn Pigg. “(The) price of goods is up here, and paychecks are down here. This stops consumers…from enjoying life and every day activities.”

Hotels Etc. is striking back. At Hotels Etc. consumers enjoy great savings on hotels, car rentals, airline tickets and transportation, event tickets and entertainment discounts (including theme parks) around the globe. With a variety of membership options designed to fit every budget and a rapidly growing international community of members and distributors, Hotels Etc. believes that fun should never have to be sacrificed for finances.

The company has also teamed up with Certs, Etc. to offer a great deal on certificates ranging from free cruises, free vacations and airline tickets to thousands of dollars of savings in grocery coupons, restaurant savings and automobile discounts. Through Hotels Etc. and Certs, Etc. even consumers on a limited budget can enjoy exotic vacations to Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Las Vegas and hundreds of other locations around the globe.

Hotels Etc. is dedicated to offering their members more than just a great discount on a hotel. Members can visit their huge online mall of discounted travel related activities, including scuba diving, whale watching, golf (at the most beautiful courses in the world), dinner shows, safaris and helicopter rides to ensure that their vacation is as full and ripe with adventure as they want it to be.

At Hotels Etc. cost of living doesn’t mean giving up the opportunity for the experience of a lifetime.

The company urges businesses to do their part to help consumers by allowing companies willing to offer members of Hotels Etc. a discount on their goods and services to join their list of other business owners who can already see the value.

“We need business owners…to offset the rising cost of goods and to help (our members) go back to what they enjoy,” urges the company’s CEO.

Hotels Etc. came to life in 1996 in the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Keith Monen of Flagstaff, Arizona, discount veterans who have been publishing discount publications and certificates since 1987. The small company has since grown to encompass 4 million members and 8,000 independent business owners in over 140 countries, and has earned a reputation for itself on the global market for offering members legitimate, up-front deals without any hidden costs or surprises.
