Here are the rules:
This offer is ONLY valid for bookings made on mobile devices. You do NOT need to download the hotels.com app – the mobile version of the main website is OK.
You must book for two or more nights
You must book a pre-paid room
You must add coupon code BONUS1 on the payment page
You must book by 22nd March for stays by 30th June
This could work out very nicely.
Because the value of your free night is the average price paid for the 10 qualifying nights, you are effectively getting back 15% of your spending via this offer on a two night stay.
More importantly, if you are working your way towards a free night but are a little short, this offer could push you over the line quickly and release the ‘locked in’ value you have already built up.
Some hotels are often excluded from hotels.com promotions. I cannot find any list for this offer but, if you follow all the instructions above and the code is still refused, that will be why. I managed to get it working OK last night on a dummy Novotel booking.
hotels.com bookings do not count for points or stay credit in the loyalty scheme of the chain where you are staying. You may get your status benefits but it is down to the goodwill of the hotel.
A lot of people, however, swear by hotels.com.
If you don’t care about status benefits, it can make sense to book all of your hotels through them. This is especially true if your travel patterns make it difficult to focus on one specific chain. With hotels.com, you won’t end up with a handful of worthless points in five or more different loyalty schemes – all of your stays are helping you earn free nights.
You are also free to stay where you want and choose the newest or most convenient hotel at your destination. You never need to compromise because you are building up points with a chain which has no good hotels where you are.
The hotels.com Easter Sale page is here. Remember to access this page on a mobile device to earn your extra free night credit. You are not restricted to just booking hotels in the Easter Sale.
