Save $ This Winter with Fluid!

As the temperature drops, you may notice that your bank account balance is dropping too. Winter is usually the most expensive time of year for American consumers – snow activities, home maintenance, holiday parties … the list goes on.

Here at Fluid, we want to help you both save and make money – so check out the things below you can take advantage of this winter!

1) Winter Sports
Skiing and Snowboarding can get SO pricey! Without including the expensive lift ticket, plus food and board on the slopes, you still need the skis/board, warm clothing, accessories and boots. Also, what if you don’t have a car that’s mountain-safe?
Not only can you borrow a 4WD SUV on Fluid for just $20/day, you can borrow all the equipment you need too! There are women’s resort ski packages from $25 a day, with everything included. Snowboard and snowshoes are available as well!

2) Home Improvement/Maintenance
Especially here in Colorado, the snow can dump – and sidewalks can get slippery! There’s no point in buying an expensive snowblower if you neighbor has one you can borrow, so why not see if there’s one near you on Fluid? Or, if you know of a neighbor who has one, ask them to list it on Fluid! That way, when you borrow it from them it’ll be insured!
Aside from snowblowers, there are also snow shovels, wheelbarrows, and more to help clean winter up! Don’t clog up your garage with tools you only use a couple of times a year!

3) Holiday Visitors
Holidays are the best when you’re surrounded with family and friends! But activities can get expensive, especially if there are kids around. Going to see movies and eating out can chip away at your holiday savings. Holiday parties get pricey too!
However, Fluid has tons of indoor activities you can borrow for cheap! There are giant games (like Connect 4 and Jenga), Virtual Reality consoles, a projector (for an indoor movie instead!), video game consoles, and more! If you need extra tables and chairs for your parties, Fluid has those as well.
If you have small children visiting but you don’t have any yourself, Fluid also has car seats, high chairs, and Pack N Plays! Browse around Fluid for more kid-friendly items.

4) List your items!
If you’re wanting to make some extra cash this winter, start listing your items on Fluid!

Stay warm this week and Happy Holidays!
