Today Hotels.com is running a flash sale with a 10% off coupon, good for hotel bookings made by 11:59pm MT today, December 12, 2016 for travel completed by March 31, 2016.
Packages including flights and such aren’t part of the sale. Most major hotel chains are excluded from the coupon use, and note that Hotels.com Rewards won’t be earned on the booking with the coupon.
The reservation must also be prepaid, which is my least favorite type of hotel booking because plans tend to change and I like having the wiggle room of flexible reservations. If the savings are good enough and your plans are solid, this might be worth using.
Many of the major hotel chains and properties are excluded from the sale, but not all. Hyatt properties are included, as are Four Seasons properties.
Using the random dates of February 15-17, 2017 at the Four Seasons Hualalai, the coupon dropped the price by over $200. Here’s the Hotels.com price –
Here’s the Four Seasons’ website price –
Is this still a huge amount of money for a two-night stay? Yes. Is it the best deal for the FS Hualalai for these dates? Maybe, maybe not, seeing as the Fine Hotels & Resorts benefit offers early check-in, late check-out, daily breakfast for two, $100 food & beverage credit, and a possible room upgrade. However, this is an example that not all upscale properties are excluded from the sale and can still get lower prices.
Higher than the 8% off flash coupon Hotels.com offered last week, this sale also doesn’t require an individual code per user but is offered right on their website.
Here’s a link to the sale page.
Use coupon code GREENMONDAY.
An interesting thing about this coupon is that it can be used to make up to 5 bookings, rather than just single-use. They all have to be made today though.
10% still isn’t a ton, but a coupon is a coupon and it does offer some savings. I hope some readers are able to take advantage of the offer today.
