Hotels.com is out with another a sale coupon. This time it is good for 12% off hotel bookings made by 11:59pm MT, January 4, 2017 for travel completed by April 4, 2017.

The coupon is intended for use with Price Guarantee hotels. 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 requires prepayment which is unfortunate. The last coupon that Hotels.com offered me was for 10% off hotels with an almost identical stay date window. If I had booked then I might have paid slightly more than during this sale.

Many of the major hotel chains and properties are excluded from the sale, but not all. I wrote recently about how these coupons can offer good savings at Four Seasons and Hyatt properties.

Here’s a handy link to the Hotels.com website.

Use coupon code EMLHAPPY.

The Terms & Conditions state that the coupon is good for up to five bookings so you can make multiple reservations and re-use.

The coupon is valid for the first 14,000 bookings made by all customers, so it isn’t limited to just a few people or specific to the recipient of the original email.

Just like with the last coupon, 12% off isn’t a ton of savings but a coupon is a coupon and I hope it will come in handy for some people.
