Black Friday and Cyber Monday aren't just about flat screens and electronic goodies: They might also help you find a nice vacation deal, writes travel blogger Mary Forgione in the Los Angeles Times. Check the websites of hotels and cruise lines and the like this weekend, and watch for tweets and Facebook posts on bargains. Forgione runs through some examples:

  • Going abroad: Abercrombie & Kent is running a sale starting Monday offering up to 50% off winter trips to far-flung locales. A 10-day trip to Kenya, for example, is cut nearly in half to $4,330 per person. More here.
  • Going skiing: Liftopia has decent discounts on lift tickets at more than 150 North American ski resorts. For instance, you can pick up one for California's Mountain High for $32, about half off. More here.
