    Thank you so much Dawn for all of the info! It is greatly appreciated. We are also a family that loves to "budget travel" We usually go to Florida for once a year for 2 weeks as well, and in the summer we do a week somewhere. Wish I had known about these when we were in Wisconsin Dells this summer. We paid through the nose, kids loved it, but it was expensive! I will def be buying some. With the fact that my hubby is the "boss" at his job, and I run my own business, we can work around dates, to accomodate certain things, as long as we have a few weeks notice to give customers, it works. We are actually looking at Jamaica or Bahamas as well one of these years. So these may work for that as well! You are awesome for sharing!

    Using the Keyword function, type in "Resort Certificates" and see what pops up.

    Wow, I never knew about Skyauction... Can someone explain the upgrade option? Lets say I have purchased my certificate for the $249 to use until Aug 2014. I go the the certificate redeeming site and look for a resort. Under the upgrade tab, I see a resort I would like to book. It has a price in red. Is that price "in addtion" to the cost of my certificate?? It is not very clear... Thank you!

    Yes, it is in addition to your certificate.

    If you PM me the name of it I can tell you if I have seen it listed in the non-upgrade section.

    Some condos are often available without an upgrade if you just wait and keep checking back.

    that is more than half the battle just figuring that out isn't it!! My certificate was going to expire in 4 days and I had to make a decision and book it! :-)

    Just wanted to say thanks for this thread. I never heard of Skyauction before. They do not have the resort certificates right now but I won a bid for a 2 bedroom in Sliver lake for $350. Just canceled the over $4000 package I had for onsite. I am so happy for the savings!
