How to Save on Hotel Rooms

We decided to take a family trip to Washington, D.C. for two nights.  My husband asked me to start searching for hotel deals.

I think one of the best hotels for a family is the Hyatt Place.  It is more spacious than a regular hotel room and has a great breakfast.  I went to Hyatt.com and saw the best price for this hotel was $162.00.  I then went to Trivago.com where they list all the different prices for hotels and the sites where you can find those deals.  I saw the best price for the hotel I wanted was $125 at hotels.com.  I could have gone back to Hyatt.com, booked it there and went through all the steps to price match with the Hotels.com price, but I came up with something better.

There was a Promo Code of "SAVENOW" on Hotels.com that popped up on the screen that I could use to save an additional 10%.  I figured out the grand total was going to be $257.93 (including tax) at Hotels.com to book the two nights.  I didn't book yet.  I clicked Raise.com through my cashback website www.savingmoneymommy.com so I could buy a $250.00 Hotels.com gift card for a discounted price of $233.81.  I'm also getting $4.68 (2% cashback) for clicking through my site.  I then clicked Hotels.com through my site www.savingmoneymommy.com to book the hotel.  I entered the gift card I just bought through Raise.com and paid an additional $7.93.  I'm getting $10.32 (4% cashback) for clicking through my site.

After the sale at Hotels.com, the promo code, the discount gift card and the cashback, instead of paying $162.00 for the hotel room, I am paying $97.04 (before tax) per night.

It is a little more work than just booking right away, but I think that saving $64.96 per night is definitely worth it!

Go out today and get a great deal!
