RelayRides.com - I saved over $300 on my last trip by using the RelayRides peer to peer car renting service. I parked my car at SFO for free (and got a free carwash) and got a nicer rental car, all for a $300 savings. More info on the free parking at SFO is available here.
Lyft.com - I recently saved over $100 by using Lyft instead of a cab company to get around town. Use promo code DAVID338550
Airbnb.com - Much cheaper accommodations than hotels. A great peer to peer vacation rental service. Use this referral link for a $25 credit.
