Taking the family on a road trip from the Midwest up through the Ohio Valley, Upstate New York then NYC. I'm a cheapskate and always looking for deals. Large family of 6, and we booked Broadway tickets already, so the rest of this trip will involve bargain hunting.

What are your travel hacks?

I use IHG (Holiday Inn Express) when possible to accumulate reward points. Also, do Hilton Honors as my back up. I'll load up on gift cards to restaurants on discount. What other ideas do you all do?

I hope your IHG has a free breakfast! I always check Groupon and Restaurant.com for deals. Just used 4 Groupons on a trip to the Pacific Northwest and have a half dozen ready for an upcoming Texas trip. Do read reviews.

Past 3 trips we bought Groupons for Hop On Hop Off bus, but sounds like you will have a car. We usually have a rental car, but we like the overview and getting the lay of the land on a HO-HO.

You self identify as a cheapskate yet you stay in IHG hotels? Too funny. Try Motel 6 or a no tell motel if you are that poor. Or take your buddy Popcorn173173 advice and sleep at rest stops.
