For Hotels.com reservations booked by June 3, 2013 you can get 10% off your hotels.com reservation by using coupon code HOTELS10OFF. This code is valid for all reservations through September 30, 2013. This coupon is valid only for new hotel bookings, but if you have a reservation booked that you are able to cancel, feel free to cancel and re-book (just make sure your original reservation isn’t passed the cancellation date and the price hasn’t increased). This 10% off coupon code seems to be a regular occurrence with hotels.com, which is great!
The coupon excludes:
- Package bookings
- Bookings made through a group travel service
- Bookings paid for at a hotel
- Bookings paid for in a foreign currently
- Bookings at non-participating hotels (you can check out excluded hotels here – mostly chain hotels)
The terms state that this offer is valid for the first 15,000 bookings, so the 10% off coupon code could always expire prior to the June 3rd date, but in the past this never seemed to be an issue when other 10% off codes were available.
Additionally, reservations using this coupon is NOT eligible for their Welcome Rewards program. Keep this in mind when making your reservation. The Hotels.com Welcome Rewards program gives you 1 free night after 10 paid nights, so essentially the same 10% off. So it is up to you on what is more valuable. I personally would prefer the 10% back now instead of hoping that I’ll earn enough rewards to get a free night eventually (which is valued at an average of your prior 10 nights). Last year I booked a few hotels through Hotels.com with a coupon code and still got nights towards my Welcome Rewards account, so there is always the chance they will still count.
Remember, you can also book through a cash back portals for extra savings. For example, Topcashback.com will give you 7% back, Bigcrumbs.com will give you 4.5% cash back, and Chase Ultimate Rewards will give you 4 points per dollar spent.
