I don't think they track cookies or anything like that. As long as you make an account with a different email and phone number, you should be able to use this.

Btw, the coupon doesn't include the cleaning fee and airbnb's extra fee.

I jumped on this offer today. Snagged 3 nights next month in 90210 mansion for $188 all-in. Gonna go for another 3 nites near the beach or Palm Desert where the radiation levels are normal unlike Half Moon Bay.

Data point: I booked a 3 day stay ~ 10 days ago (my first ever booking) and I called Airbnb to see what they could do for me. They were able to give me a refund of $100 off the overall tab, which I was really happy with. Rooms were $100 per night, so they essentially gave me the same promotion of 1 night free.

For anyone that has already booked, I would definitely recommend giving them a call. They'll most likely give you a similar deal.

Thanks OP!

Is anybody else maximizing this? I have a lot of relatives, who would imagine that my spare bedroom could be so lucrative...

It is actually a great promo. Have never used the service, but need my reservations in summer 2014, so would not have been able to use it. How often do these promos occur? And is there a thread about airbnb promos? facebook or tweeter notifications?

Thanks.

Do your homework.

I have never used AirBNB, but a coworker used them extensively in Europe for a month, and had nothing but good things to say.

However, just be aware that there are scams everywhere these days, so do your homework.... Here are some things to help.

I'm already finding that exact locations of apartments on the Airbnb map are inaccurate. Be sure to "google map" the street to see if it's really where the host claims it (the apartment) is.

Just got back today, despite the snow at EWR. We flew into Milan, then trained down to Rome, hitting Florence on our way to catch the flight back out.

My PQDs for the first leg posted while we were there....$18!
