1. 100 Hotel Deals in 100 Hours
Extreme Hotel Deals is posting various hotel deals from mistake fares to discounted rates on their website through December 12, 2014.
These deals vary with some offers for this year and others for 2015. For example, you can stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, Bakersfield, California for $14 (December 21, 2014, to December 25, 2014, and December 30, 2014 to January 1, 2015). Or at the Melia Roma Aurelia Antica, Italy for $10 (February 13, 2015).
When you see a hotel you like, book soon because some of these deals go quickly!
Note: If the rate is a mistake fare, sometimes the hotel won’t honor the price. But sometimes they do!
2. $25 in HotelTonight Credit When You Spend $75
Via The Forward Cabin, you can get a $25 HotelTonight credit when you pay $75 on a HotelTonight booking with your MasterCard IF you’re a resident of the US or Puerto Rico.
This offer ends on December 18, 2014, or while supplies last.
You can use the $25 credit for future bookings and it expires in 1 year.
I wasn’t too impressed with HotelTonight, but it could work for some folks.
3. Southwest Fare Sale
Via Deals We Like, Southwest is having a fare sale for tickets purchased by December 14, 2014.
The fares aren’t as good as their previous sale, but some 1-way fares start at $69.
You have to book by 11:59 pm (in the time zone of the city you’re traveling from) on December 14, 2014. And travel from December 23, 2014 through June 4, 2015.
But there are restrictions:

These types of sales don’t work for me and Emily because we like to travel on the weekends. But it could work for you.
