FROM OUR BLOG: THIS JUST IN
We're pulling together a special issue of our newsletter—a cheap edition. We'll cover methods that aren't merely value-conscious or sensible, but that take saving money to a new, rock-bottom level. We'd love to hear your tips, whether you've actually tried them out or not.

CALLING ALL READERS
Last week we asked you to help us cover Italy. Using our new community feature, we received a flood of responses

You'll have to register once for the site—so to sweeten the deal, we'll enter you to win one of three prizes if you contribute. The grand prize is airfare and seven nights at a beachfront resort in Fiji.
THE REAL DEALS

why they're a deal
A five-night sail from Kirkenes, an Arctic outpost near the Russian border, past fjords and ancient settlements to Bergen, a Viking-founded harbor town, is $1,299 for two people—a savings of 50 percent off typical rates.
