All this week, Head for Points is running an exciting competition in association with hotel booking app HotelTonight to promote their current ‘£30 off your first UK booking’ promotion.

We have a prize of £500 of hotel credit to be won!  One lucky reader will win see £500 of credit deposited into their HotelTonight account.

The prize will be valid for 12 months and can be used at any of their properties in over 500 cities.

In addition, every reader who downloads the HotelTonight app will receive £30 towards their first UK hotel booking, valid until the end of 2015.

What is HotelTonight?

HotelTonight is an app which allows you to book a carefully curated selection of hotels, at all price points, up to seven days in advance. By restricting itself to seven days advance booking, it can persuade hotels to offer discounted prices because they will know by that point that they will not be full.

The company operates across the UK, Europe, North America and Latin America with over 500 cities currently covered.  Last week the company opened up in Australia with Sydney and Melbourne the first cities to be included.

Hotel Tonight

HotelTonight is only available as an app. There is no website through which you can book. Restricting access to deals to registered users is another way that the company can persuade hotels to offer deals through the platform.

The iOS app can be downloaded here

The Android app can be downloaded here

The Windows Phone app can be downloaded here

HotelTonight is currently offering a £30 credit to new users.  To receive your £30 credit, valid for UK hotels, you need to enter the code HEADFORPOINTS on the sign-up page.

(On Windows Phone, there is no ability to enter a promo code.  You need to contact customer support and ask them to add £30 credit in relation to the HEADFORPOINTS promo code.  Apologies for the extra effort required.)

IMPORTANT: the £30 will show as a coupon on your account under the “Redeem promo code” section. It does NOT show as a £30 credit and your ‘Credit’ total will still show £0.

You have until 31st December to redeem your £30 sign-up credit so there is no rush to use it – but you should download the app ASAP whilst the code is still available.

The £30 credit is only for first-time users of the service and a £70 + taxes minimum spend at a UK hotel is required.

What can you win?

We are giving away ONE prize of £500 HotelTonight credit.

The prize will be valid for 12 months and can be used in any of their properties worldwide.  As you will see from the app, the company operates in a huge number of cities so you won’t have any problems using your credit.

How do I enter?

You need to download the HotelTonight app for your iPhone, Android or Windows Phone device and claim your £30 of free credit by using the code HEADFORPOINTS.  That is it!

There is NO requirement to make a booking.

If you have already downloaded the HotelTonight app over the last couple of months and used the HEADFORPOINTS code then you are already entered into the competition.  You do not need to do anything.

The competition will close at midnight UK time on Sunday 12th July. The winner will be picked at random from all valid downloads.

The other rules

The competition is only open to residents of the UK.

Under UK law, I am obliged to make the names of the winners available on request. The joint promoters of the competition are HotelTonight and Head for Points, contact details available on request.

Good luck!

    Tried the promo. code but got a message about “no double dipping allowed”. Rather impolite IMHO

      Same here, I installed the app a while back when I thought I might use it, didn’t booked anything but now it won’t allow me to use the promo code. No luck after updating the app either.

      A bit of a shame as I probably would have used the £30 credit..

    So,what sort of savings can/should one expect ? Looking in Leeds for late next week, I am not
    convinced. A couple of hotels only, one in Wakefield, and I’m pretty sure I could get the same price. However, I stand to be corrected. (And why the apparent favouritism with Holiday Inns?)

    Hi Rob

    I signed up my sister for this offer. Is the minimum £70 before tax? As she is trying to book a room at £79 and it’s showing with no discount.

    Thanks

    • Rob says:

      We had this issue before …. it might only kick in at £70 + VAT ie £84 before their fees figure is tacked on. You’d need to test it on a hotel costing £84 before extras and see if it takes it. UK-only remember.

      • Chris says:

        Yeah it appears to work fine for an £85 room elsewhere in the country so it’s really £30 off £84 spend

  • Bill says:

    Windowsphone does not allow the code HEADFORPOINTS to be entered. I emailed them about my handset and my wife’s. They manualy credited the accounts. However, I doubt we will meet the entry requirements now since the code isnt registered to our accounts

    I think I did it!
