Booking a hotel soon? Check out this deal from TripAdvisor!
Via Points, Miles & Martinis, you can get a $25 Amazon gift card when you book a $200+ hotel stay through TripAdvisor by September 5, 2016, and complete a review by October 15, 2016.
Here’s how to get the deal!
Get a Reward for Your Hotel Stay
TripAdvisor is offering folks a $25 Amazon gift card when you book a hotel stay through their site by September 5, 2016, and write review by October 15, 2016. There are no minimum stay requirements, but you must spend at least $200 before taxes and fees.
You must book your hotel through this link and use a valid US address to qualify for the deal. There’s a limit of 1 gift card per person.
After your review is published and TripAdvisor confirms your stay, you’ll receive a $25 Amazon gift card via email.
Is This a Good Deal?
This could be a good deal for some. Especially if you don’t have hotel points you can use for free nights. But I suggest shopping around to be sure you’re getting the best price.
Compare to Booking Directly With the Hotel
Don’t forget, certain hotel chains give you perks or discounts for booking directly with them. And most hotels (except Hyatt) require you to book your stay directly to take advantage of elite status benefits.
Plus, you typically will NOT earn hotel points or elite stay credits when you book through a 3rd-party site like TripAdvisor.
There are other ongoing promotions such as the “10th night free” perk with hotels.com. And earning Orbitz Orbucks to use with no blackout dates at thousands of hotels. Or credit card deals like Citi Prestige’s 4th night free perk (through July 23, 2017).
Good for a Short Stay With a Good Price!
But if you have a short stay coming up, and you find a good price on TripAdvisor, this is an easy way to earn a $25 Amazon gift card in the few minutes it takes to write a review.
