Online Spring Auction –
Savings on Vacation Getaways, Summer Fun & more
We are getting closer & closer to summer, I can just feel it! The countdown is definitely on in our house as it’s just a month away till school is out. If you’re like me, you’re planning out all your adventures & vacations, but those can get pricey, so I am always on the hunt for deals for summer fun. One place we have found some great deals for local adventures & vacations is thru the Online Spring Auction with Spirit 105.3 & Praise 106.5.
An online auction is similar to a regular auction, but you don’t have to leave your house and you can take the time you need to research the items & make your bid, without the pressure of a live auction. The savings can be significant, too, for things such as vacation getaways, family fun activities, & more that may be harder to find discounts typically.
