Save on Your Next Staycation with Dosh

By now, you’ve probably realized we have a thing for the Dosh app. And maybe you’re still wondering why. With all the cash back apps out there, what makes Dosh so special?

Dosh is different from other cash back apps in that you don’t have to juggle your wallet and your phone to get the savings. And that is what we love about it. Link your credit cards to Dosh and the cash back is automatically applied when you use those credit cards at participating merchants. No scanning receipts, no coupons, and no need to pull your phone out when you check out.

Dosh app for cash back on staycations

With summers busier than ever, many Americans are opting for staycations this year. Staycations are great options for busy families because you can squeeze in a great relaxing vacation in just a few days, no long travel days required! Plus with Dosh, you won’t just being saving your time, but your money too.

Here are easy ways to save on your next staycation with Dosh


Staycation hotel room

Just because you are staying home this year, doesn’t mean you can’t stay at a hotel. Many hotels offer indoor or outdoor water parks, spas, restaurants and even on-site shopping. Use Dosh to browse local hotels and compare rates. Plus, the Dosh app will let you know how much cash back you’ll be getting after your stay. A recent search showed Dosh offered the same rate as Orbitz, Travelocity and Expedia for the Kimpton Hotel Palomar in Chicago. BUT technically Dosh is cheaper because they’ll put $39.05 back in your wallet, just for paying with a credit card linked to Dosh!


For us, a staycation isn’t a staycation until you’ve dined somewhere you’ve never dined before. And this is where I really love Dosh. You don’t have to awkwardly ask your server to scan your phone or apply a coupon to your bill while feeling like the table next to you is judging you for being “cheap.” Simply pay with your linked credit card and be on your way.


What’s a staycation without some extra special fun? Chances are there are plenty of fun things to do in your backyard. Play a round of golf at a new-to-you course. Visit the museum that you’ve been meaning to see for the last five years. Visit a local brewery for a tour and tasting. Heck, rent some bikes and ride around your city to see it from a new perspective! Dosh can help you save here too. A recent search for Chicago showed deals on boat cruises, Segway tours and even the Adler Planetarium. Plus, each activity offered extra cash back when you pay with your linked card.

As you can see, a staycation can offer plenty of fun (and relaxation) in your own backyard. Be sure to download the Dosh app to find the best deals on hotels and activities and earn cash back all staycation long!
