If low- or no-cost travel isn’t a good enough deal for you, try this one on for size: San Luis Obispo, California will pay you to come see their sites. Yes, pay you. So what’s the catch? Check out how your fam can travel and get paid!

Technically you still have to pay for your hotel. But how often do you get the chance to go on a trip and then get $100 cash back upon arrival? Seriously. That’s a huge perk! But there’s a little legwork involved before you can get that sweet cash. Read on for the deets.

You’ll need to book a minimum two-night hotel stay in San Luis Obispo, between Jan. 1 and Mar. 31, 2019 via the city’s website. (FYI, there are a few blackout dates to avoid, specifically Jan. 19-20 and Feb. 16-17.)

After booking your stay, email your hotel stay confirmation to info@sanluisobispovacations.com. You’ll get a promotion confirmation number via email. You’ll need to print this out and hang onto it for your trip. Once you arrive, check in to your hotel, then head over to the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. Show them your lodging confirmation, promotion confirmation email and your hotel room key.

The first 500 visitors to do so will get $100! We never said it would be easy but hey—free cash is free cash, plus you can get mini vaycay in with the fam at the same time.

Happy travels!
