How to Get The Absolute Best Hotel Rate Prices

By Jennifer Miller


Google is a great tool to use if you're looking for the best hotel rates, but 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 along with discounted gift cards. Confused? Don't be! We will walk you through!

Step 1
Decide on a hotel you want to stay. If you don't know which hotel yet, step 2 will help!

Step 2
Use Google Hotels to find the cheapest rate for that hotel

Step 3
Go to Hotels Com to make sure they have the room you want.

We recommend booking on Hotels Com because
* Hotels com will pricematch to other sites
* Hotels com will give you a free night for every 10 nights you stay with them (that's 10% back)
* Hotels com has discounted gift cards floating around you can use to pay

Step 4
Go to CardBear and buy discounted gift card(s) to use on this purchase. This gives you an additional 5% off your booking!

* You can only use 1 gift card to book, BUT you can combine multiple gift cards into one using the jigsawbusinesssolutions balance services

Step 5
Go to HotelsCom to make your booking

Step 6
You can use coupon code REBATES22 to get the following
* Get $20 back on 3 night stays / $130
* Get $30 back on 5-night stays / $200
* Get $50 back on 8-night stays / $325
* Get $75 back on 10-night stays / $500
* Get $100 back on 12-night stays / $650

Step 7
Use the discounted gift cards to make this booking

You just got the cheapest rate! If not, you can always have Hotels Com pricematch.

Hotels also has rebates which you get if you don’t use coupons makes it a little more complicated but you can use them if you don’t hit the $200 minimum

Or you can just use priceline name your own price and get a better rate anyways, instead of following all these silly steps

you can also bargain with a bottle of gin to set a tent up in someone's back yard
