The Citi ThankYou portal is offering $50 off on hotel bookings of at least 2 nights when you book online via the Citi ThankYou Travel Portal. This could be a solid deal on an inexpensive stay or can even stack with the 4th night free if you have the Citi Prestige card, though keep in mind that stays booked through the ThankYou portal will not qualify towards elite status or earn hotel points, nor will you enjoy any elite status benefits. If you’re staying in a cheap overseas market, your hotel could be nearly free.

This discount can be pretty significant if you have a cheap 2-night stay lined up. For example, the Candlewood Suites near Dulles Airport is available for $70 per night next weekend.
After applying the discount code on the checkout page, the price comes down to $90 for two nights. Less then $50 per night all-in is hard to beat.
This code will also apply with a 4th-night-free booking. It even applies if you pay with points. I ran a search for four nights at the hotel above and elected to pay with points. The CITI50 code took 5,000 points off the total:
If you hold a ThankYou Premier card, I believe you would get 1.25c per point and pay even fewer points, though I’m not sure whether the code CITI50 takes off a different number of points for Premier card holders.
Stephen Pepper brought to my attention the fact that the code may not work if the hotel already has some sort of special offer in the system, so it is possible that this code won’t apply to all hotels. That said, it did apply to the hotels I tested.
I don’t think there are geographical restrictions — which could make for a nearly free stay in cheap markets. For example, you could stay for two nights at the POP! Hotel Nusa Dua in Bali, Indonesia for two nights for a grand total of 80 cents or 80 ThankYou points.
I’m not familiar with the POP! HOtel Nusa Dua, so I’m not sure if there are any additional award fees or taxes, but I imagine any additional charges would be minor.
You have until 4/30/18 to use code CITI50 to save $50 on two or more consecutive hotel nights booked through the Citi ThankYou portal. I did not see full terms for this code, so I’m not sure whether or not it is valid for multi-use. If you try to use it more than one time, let us know your experience in the comments.
