I’ve written before about how you can save money onTravelPony, but now you can save more money when you use the TravelPony app (Apple) (Android).  Every day at 6:00 am Eastern Time, new discounts are available through the app. 

Although you get many hotel choices for each city with the TravelPony website, you only get 1 hotel choice in a city with the app.

TravelPony App Sales Start at 6:00 AM Eastern Time Daily

You can use some of the promo codes from the TravelPony website on the TravelPony app to save an additional 5% to 10%.

Save an Additional 5% to 10% When You Use Promo Codes on the TravelPony App

But not all the promo codes from the TravelPony website work in the app.  So you’ll have to try a few to see which ones work.

Not All TravelPony Promo Codes Work in the App

$5 Lyft Credit

Link:   Lyft

Most of the hotel reservations on the TravelPony app include a $5 Lyft credit.

Lyft is a ride share program similar to Uber.  But instead of black cars, Lyft cars are regular cars with pink mustaches.

The $5 credit isn’t a lot, but it’s the highest credit Lyft offers.

Pay Less When You Use the TravelPony App

You’ll pay less booking through the TravelPony app than on the TravelPony website or through the hotel.

Denver

You would pay $114 to stay at the Hyatt House Denver Airport on November 14, 2014.  You also get a $5 Lyft ride credit.

1 Night at the Hyatt House Denver Airport Costs $114

Entering the promotion code “WINTER” I was able to save an extra 5%.

You Only Pay ~$108 a Night Using Promo Code “WINTER”

If you booked through the TravelPony website, you’d pay ~$119 after applying promo code “TPSAVINGS” which is $11 more than if you booked through the app!

So you’ll pay more on the TravelPony website than using the TravelPony app even with the better promo code of “TPSAVINGS” (which didn’t work on the app)!

Even With a Larger Discount, the TravelPony Website Charged More for 1 Night at the Hyatt House Denver Airport

And booking on the Hyatt website, you’d pay ~$120 a night.

You’d Pay ~$120 for 1 Night at the Hyatt House Denver Airport If You Book Through the Hyatt Website

But you don’t earn Hyatt points for bookings through the TravelPony website or app.  For some folks earning Hyatt points is worth paying more for a hotel room.  But for others, saving money is the better deal.

San Antonio

You’ll pay ~$52 (using promotion code “WINTER”) to stay at the Ramada San Antonio on November 14, 2014.

1 Night at the Ramada San Antonio Costs ~$52 on the TravelPony App

You’d pay ~$59 if you booked it through the TravelPony website.

You Pay ~$9 More To Book The Ramada San Antonio on the TravelPony Website

And if you booked the hotel on the Ramada website, you’d pay ~$69.

So you should 1st search the TravelPony app (Apple) (Android) for a hotel deal.  Then search the TravelPony website for other hotels in that city.  Or if you wanted a particular hotel, the hotel’s website.

Booking through TravelPony counts as a travel purchase so use your Chase Sapphire Preferred or Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite MasterCard.

You get 5% cash back on all online purchases through December 31, 2014, when you use your Discover card IF you registered.

Bottom Line

You can save money on hotels using the TravelPony app (Apple) (Android).   You’ll pay less using the app than booking directly on the TravelPony website or the hotel website.

Every day at 6:00 am Eastern Time, new hotel discounts are posted on the TravelPony app (Apple) (Android).   But you only get 1 hotel choice in a city when you use the app.

And you’ll save an additional 5% to 10% when you apply certain promo codes.
