(DEAD)The HotelCard - $50 for $20 on Saveology

Digging this up and updating because I have a bunch of left over vouchers from Snaggies, etc and now they are listing hotels for under 75.00 that you can use the vouchers for. Before it was 75 and up. Nice improvement.

Caveat Emptor

YMMV, I have found hotel rates to be much higher on www.thehotelcard.com than what is available for the same hotel/dates on other online sites, thus negating the value of any 'discount'

not always.

I don't like that they don't list hotels under 75.00 but have found the rates to be equal to other sites for what I have checked.

but check before you buy, easy nuff

eh. prices seem comparable, tax/fees seem a bit higher. my experience has been it can be a deal depending on how much you pay for the card. I've paid $12 for the cards and been happy, not sure I'd pay more personally.

Thanks for asking Darben but no, just posted in case anyone can save a few bucks (hotel deals are pretty sparse lately)
and I think referrals can only go in S.P.A.M

I still have 3 or 4 hotelcard codes left from Snaggies. Too many PC points, I haven't needed to pay for a hotel in quite some time

I find the base fares are similar to what Expedia offers, but the taxes and fees are higher.

Go to the deal and click on the terms it will answer your questions

T&C:

Limit 2 per person. One Hotel Card per reservation can be used. No hidden charges - just world-wide savings! Expires 09/06/2012

It still did not answer my question.

No. They state "Voucher available 24 hours after purchase." I made my purchase 23 hours ago and am still waiting, but YMMV.

My experience with the hotel card is that the rates are not necessarily higher. I got 2 nights in Vermont, labor day weekend, and the rates were drastically lower than any other website. Maybe hotelscards did not yet update their database - I don't know. But it worked out extremely well for me. I think it's a good deal and good to have a couple of these vouchers on hand. I may buy 2 more.

Rates decent, still have not received confimation email

Bought 2 on July 30th and still have not received email saying order was ready. According to their site this was to happen w/in 24 hours.

Their phone number is a joke, all it does is tell you to email them.
