Why This Is A Great Deal

While this seems like a pretty good deal on the surface, it’s actually a great deal when you dig a little deeper. First, Hotels.com has a great rewards program which can multiply your savings. When you’ve stayed a total of 10 nights booked through Hotels.com (can be over multiple stays), you earn one free night at the average value of your 10 nights. This is effectively like getting 10% in rewards, you just have to wait until you’ve accumulated 10 nights to earn it. Plus, you can still earn these rewards when you’re paying with gift cards. So, you’re saving 10% on the gift card itself and then getting another 10% in rewards.

According to reports, purchases at Gyft, when you check out with PayPal using a Chase Ink Cash, are still coding as 5x Chase Ultimate Rewards. Other options to earn 5x CUR on gift cards have recently dried up, but Gyft is apparently still working. So this is an opportunity to earn a lot of points on top of the savings.

Hotels.com and Disney

This can be a great way to book a Disney hotel. The prices we’ve seen at Hotels.com are usually the same as we’ve found through Disney. If you don’t need a Disney vacation package or you’re booking a stay at Aulani, this can be a great way to save on the hotel portion of your trip.
