Looking for a price break on a little fitness training or some much-needed spa-style pampering?
You might just be in luck, if you time it right.
Nearly a thousand spas, yoga studios and fitness centers are participating in Wellness Week March 19-25, says Sallie Fraenkel, executive vice president with SpaFinder.com. As a result, these businesses offer a number of half-off deals and $50 specials, she says.
You can get everything from facials and spa treatments to massages and fitness classes, Fraenkel says.
"It's really a neat program," says Lynne McNees, president of the International Spa Association. "It's really a time to focus on yourself and take that time out."
Want to really get away from it all? For a March travel bargain, sample a ski destination, such as Vail, Colo., says Peter Greenberg, author of "New Rules of the Road" and travel editor for CBS News.
"There are still some spring break deals," he says. One Vail resort that's normally $700 a night can be had for $400, while another that normally books for $470 per night is $330.
The rule for finding March travel bargains: "You do it on the fly," says Greenberg.
"These sales disappear almost as fast as they appear. They have a limited life span."
