As the holiday season approaches most of us are looking for a winter getaway. If you are one of those people and are you ready to book a hotel for an overnight stay, your next vacation or to just stay in the city for your upcoming office party you are going to want to read on as we have secured a deal that can save you $40 on you next hotel booking.
Is this too Good to be True?
So many “deals” you see today have a catch that they don't tell you about or you find out you didn't get all the information before going for it. It winds up being a waste of time.
Well we've made sure none of that happens to you.
We have already personally taken advantage of the deal and gone through the process so we know exactly the steps you need to take to secure your savings.
We have partnered with Booking.com and secured an exclusive deal for The Planet D readers so that you can save some cash this holiday season.
You may think that this is simply too good to be true or there are some strings attached but that is not the case here.
We love saving money just as much as you do so just follow the instructions below and you will be getting $40 back on your credit card in no time!
What you need to know before you get started:
- For the booking to be eligible the total must be at least $80.
- The $40 discount is only applicable to one booking. eg. You book 3 nights that total $300 CAD you pay $260 CAD.
- You can only use the referral once per account/email address.
- You must sign up for Booking.com account and enter in your credit card details to be eligible.
- Refunds can only be attributed to Visa or Mastercard
- You must complete the stay in order to qualify for the discount.
- We only have 500 of these to give away so act now so you don't miss out!
Now that you are informed about the “fine print” it is time to get that savings underway.
How do I do it?
When you are ready to book your hotel use this referral link and you will be brought to the booking.com homepage. Or click the link below
If you don't already have a booking.com account then go through the steps to set one up. Make sure to enter your Visa or Mastercard details and check the box that says “Use this card for my Cash Rewards”. That way your are all set up to get your $40 when you return from your trip.
You will also see a popup like the one below. Start by clicking on “Let's do this”.
Then select your hotel dates, room choice etc. and go through the booking process as you normally would.
*Note* You will see this banner at the bottom of the page as you go through the booking process. That way you know you will get the savings.*
Did it work? How do I Know?
After booking you will receive a confirmation email and about half way down that confirmation you will see this:
That means you have qualified for the discount and it will be applied after you have completed your stay.
You can also check the “Free Money” Tab inside your booking.com account and you will see it displayed on that page. If it shows that your booking is inelegible then go back and make sure it qualifies. If not, then cancel the reservation and start again.
How do I get Redeem the Credit?
Once you have returned from your trip booking.com will send you an email that asks you how your trip was and that it is now time to cash in on the reward they promised.
Make sure you have set up your credit card in the Settings Tab and checked the “Use this card for my Cash Rewards” box. Remember that it has to be Visa or Mastercard.
This will take a minimum of 5 days after you get the email. I would give it up to 2 weeks as it depends on how long the hotel takes to confirm the payment with booking.com.
Also make sure to check the Free Money Tab in your account as it will tell you what is pending as well as what has been paid.
And that is all there is to it. You have now saved $40 on your hotel booking courtesy of The Planet D.
If you have any questions please leave them in the comments and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
So what are you waiting for? Book your holiday hotel stay now and save $40 upon completion of your stay!
