Yep, that's right. The Cent-sational Promotion's attention-grabbing rate of 25 cents per room per night honors a newly minted quarter featuring the USVI. The book-by deadline is within 25 days, November 2, although it's possible the promotion will sell out before then.

You can stay up to three nights at participating hotels—for a grand total of 75 cents—and will also get a $25 per person dining credit, a $25 per person activities credit, and a commemorative quarter Scotiabank coin set. But there's no escaping taxes; resort taxes average seven percent, and a standard eight percent government tax applies to all bookings.

Travel dates are October 9 through December 15*, and reservations must be booked for air-inclusive packages through BookIt.com, 888/782-9722. U.S. citizens don't need a passport to visit the USVI (St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas), which makes it easier to take advantage of this short-notice deal.

Here are the hotel options: Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, Carambola Beach Resort & Spa, Hibiscus Beach Resort, Hotel Caravelle, Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort, Secret Harbour Beach Resort, The Palms at Pelican Cove, Windward Passage, and Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa.

*10/16 UPDATE: Originally this promotion was valid for travel through November 15, but it has been extended through December 15.
