The discount online hotel reservation site Travel Pony is offering 7% off all hotel reservations through end of day tonight (May 10, 2015). To get this extra savings, use promotion code FACEBOOK at checkout. If you are not yet a member, make sure to first sign up through a referral link so you can get a $35 credit towards your next $200+ reservation, although it cannot be combined with the 7% off code, but you can use it on your next stay – my referral link but feel free to post your own in the comments section.
The good part about this promotion is that this is on top of the already discounted rooms. Remember, you can always use the TPSAVINGS which is the standing offer code to get an additional 10%-45% off the rate listed. This code can be used in combination with the 7% off code FACEBOOK.
Also remember, if you have a hotel room previously booked and you haven’t gone past the cancellation policy, cancel and rebook. I personally booked a hotel room with TravelPony a few weeks back, but the rate has gone up slightly, so even with the 7% discount it is not cheaper – so it will not always work in your favor, just make sure to compare prices.
My experience: Last Fall I booked a two night stay at The Palazzo in Las Vegas for a total of $258.20 after taxes. That same reservation would cost $428.56 through the hotel site directly! For that particular scenario, Jetsetter was also more expensive. I tried a bunch of codes with the hotel site on the IHG website to get a lower reservation rate and none were accepted, so TravelPony saved me about $170! I did not, however, receive the points, so keep that in mind. Related blog post.
TravelPony also launched an app where every city has one hotel on sale every day. The promotion code FACEBOOK can also be used on the app to get an even great savings!
Always make sure that you are getting the best possible rate when booking a hotel reservations! Some pricing will be better, where some will not. Overall, I’ve seen very favorable pricing, but that is not always the case.
