Quick little deal for you. If you use PayPal and Hotels.com there is a new promo out for $50 off a purchase of $300 or more when you pay with PayPal. Per usual, decide if this deal is right for you. Because this is an OTA keep in mind you typically won’t get hotel points for any stays and your elite status may not be recognized.
That being said, this equates to around 16% off if your purchase is exactly $300. This deal definitely isn’t for everyone but hey, it may be right for you!
PayPal and Hotels.com Deal – Terms and Conditions
Keep in mind this coupon can’t be used for the following, and not all hotels are eligible:
1. Package bookings i.e. hotel + flight
2. Bookings made through Group Travel Services
3. Bookings paid for at the hotel
4. Bookings paid for in a foreign currency
5. Bookings at non-participating hotels
6. Bookings made prior to receipt of this coupon
The terms say this cannot be used with any other promotion on Hotels.com but as usual YMMV.
Additional details include you can only use this coupon up to 5 times and this offer is only for the first 9,800 bookings made using this promo code. I doubt that limit will be reached quickly, but just in case.
The deal page is found here. So head over and decide if you can put this to good use.
More items to keep in mind, this FlyerTalk thread states the merchant code passes through so you should still get 3x travel points with the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Citi Prestige, or other cards that offer travel bonuses, but I’m not guaranteeing anything!
