Gyft currently has a $50 Hotels.com gift card on sale for $42.50 with promo code VOYAGE. You can buy two at this price and you should be able to later combine them into one — though see the cautions below under “quick thoughts”.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Expires August 14, 2019 at 9pm ET.
  • Limit 2 per household.

Quick Thoughts

It’s always nice to see a discount on Hotels.com gift cards. While I don’t often book through Hotels.com because such bookings do not earn hotel points and elite credit and are usually ineligible for elite benefits. That said, stacking 15% off these cards and an effective 10% back through Hotels.com Welcome Rewards could easily make up for what you’re losing, especially at properties where breakfast is free for everyone and/or you don’t need elite benefits.

Note of caution on combining cards

Hotels.com used to allow you to quickly and easily combine gift cards online, which made it easy to stack deals like this and/or cards purchased at a discount via third parties.

However, a reader at Doctor of Credit brought to my attention that the merge tool is currently “out of service”.

You now have to call to merge gift cards and apparently you need to know how much the gift card was originally worth and when it was activated (which seems impractical to me if you actually received one as a gift as they likely intend).

Another reader there offers a workaround, which looks like it would probably work if you were looking to combine this with something purchased via a site like Raise.

All that said, I Gyft has a limit of 2 here and I would expect that they would be relatively easy to combine them over the phone with a rep.

The final added bonus here is that Ink Cash (and old Ink Plus) cards have been earning 5x at Gyft when you check out via PayPal. No bonus for the Ink Business Preferred to my knowledge (different bonus categories on that card)Update: Gyft no longer appears to code at 5x.
