Have you had to book a hotel stay and found yourself torn between using a travel site like Expedia to quickly compare prices or booking directly through the hotel?
Booking through StayFaster will give you the best of both worlds!
Use promotional code “Million Mile Secrets” to get 10% cash back on your 1st booking. And then 6% cash back on all other bookings through January 31, 2016! Instead of keeping the 6%, we’ve arranged to give it back to our readers!
With this new site you can quickly compare the same prices you’d find on hotel websites. And when you make your reservation on StayFaster, they put your booking directly into the hotel’s system.
So you’ll earn hotel points for your stay and take advantage of elite status benefits such as upgrades, free breakfast, and free internet!
However, StayFaster only searches for hotels within the US (for now at least).
Let’s take a look at how StayFaster can help you save and earn hotel points on your next trip!

A check will be sent to the address on your account at the end of each quarter.
Note: Hotels that don’t qualify will have “Not Eligible for Promotions” at the top of each room description
Step 2 – Search for Hotels at Your Next Travel Destination
Searching for hotels on StayFaster is easy. Enter your destination, arrival date, and the number of nights you plan to stay.
You’ll get a list of hotels available in your search area, along with a map.
This list displays the lowest available rates. But when you click on a hotel, you can see your room options.
Step 3 – Filter Your Results & Choose Your Hotel
For Atlanta, Georgia, we get a list of ~160 hotels!
You can choose to limit your search to discounted rates that apply to you such as:
Enter your hotel loyalty numbers and eliminate hotels that aren’t members of your favorite programs.
You can also narrow down your search results with a variety of filters.
Unfortunately, a few of the most important search options aren’t available yet!
Step 4 – Payments
Your payment will be processed by the hotel. StayFaster does NOT change your card.
So remember to pay with a card that will give you bonus points for your stay such as:
- Chase Hyatt – 3X points at Hyatt hotels
- Chase Sapphire Preferred – 2X points on travel
- Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card – 10X points at Hilton hotels
If you need to cancel you reservation, you’ll get the same flexible cancellation policy that’s offered by the hotel. And you can cancel with just the click of a button!
You save more money when you stack the StayFaster discount with special rates from AAA, AARP, government & military programs, etc.
Does StayFaster Find the Best Prices?
I did test searches to find out if StayFaster will get you the best price on hotels.
1. San Diego, California
I also searched Expedia.
Breakfast alone could cost you ~$20 per person each day. So it’s worth booking through StayFaster!
its own rewards program, but you’ll get more value from hotel points.
2. Austin, Texas
Expedia also had the same rate.
3. Kauai, Hawaii
I compared the price to Expedia.
You might find better rates on sites like Expedia. So do the math to see if forgoing hotel points and benefits like free breakfast is worth the savings.
You can use promotional code “Million Mile Secrets” to get 10% cash back on your 1st booking and 6% cash back on all other bookings through January 31, 2016!
