Google is a great tool to use if you're looking for the best hotel rates, but we this method will get you the cheapest hotel rate. If you are planning to stay at a hotel/motel, we recommend using Hotels.com pricematch or their coupons floating around on eBay along with discounted gift cards. Confused? Don't be! We will walk you through
Notes Before Step 3 We recommend booking on Hotels Com because * Hotels com have coupons floating around for $50 off $200 or 10% off * Hotels com will pricematch to other sites * Hotels com will give you a free night for every 10 nights you stay with them * Hotels com has discounted gift cards floating around you can use to pay
Step 3 If you are booking over $200-500 before tax, go to eBay and buy a $50 off $200 to use at Hotels Com
* If you are staying over $200+, we recommend splitting your stay to make use of multiple $50 off coupons. There is a slight inconvenience of needing to checkout and checking back in
* By using a coupon, Hotels Com will not give you a stamp towards your free night. If you earn 10 nights, they will give you a free night which is the equivalent of 10% of the 10 nights. If your stay is over $500+ and you plan to collect 10 stamps, we recommend not using a coupon and just collecting the stamp.
If you are booking under $200, you can use coupon code REBATES20 to get the following * Get $20 back on 3 night stays * Get $30 back on 5-night stays * Get $50 back on 8-night stays * Get $75 back on 10-night stays * Get $100 back on 12-night stays
Step 4 Go to CardBear and buy discounted Hotels Com Gift Cards for the amount your stay will cost * You can buy multiple gift cards and combine them by calling 1-888-999-4468 * If you want a new gift card number (recommended) book a cancellable hotel using the bought gift card and cancel the booking. Hotels Com will send you a new gift card number
Step 5 Finally, Go to Hotels.com to use your $50 off $200 coupon and the discounted gift cards to book your stay
Done! You just got the cheapest rate! If not, you can always have Hotels Com pricematch. Worst case, you got the cheapest rate with the discount of the gift cards.
