Free Drink on Southwest, Great Hotel Deals in Vancouver, and a Chipotle Offer
Happy (almost) Halloween!
Complimentary drink on Southwest
If you’re flying Southwest tomorrow, enjoy a free cocktail on board.
Southwest extends this offer on various holidays but doesn’t advertise it much, so it will likely be up to you to proactively ask for it.
And be a good neighbor – tell your fellow flyers and start an in-flight party. 🙂
Great hotel promotion in Vancouver
beVancouver is back with a great deal for off-season hotel stays in Vancouver.
Book a participating stay and receive an Amex Prepaid Gift Card of up to $125 at check in.
Gift card amounts vary depending on the hotel, but this can be a great deal. I checked a random date during the promotion period and found the following examples.
$11 per night (after deducting the gift card value) for the 3.5-star Executive Hotel Vintage Park:
$20/night for the 3-star Best Western Plus Downtown:
$61/night for the 4.5-star Sutton Place Hotel:
Also, one in ten bookings is free so cross your fingers!
Details, per the offer website:
- Make a booking at any of our hotels before November 16th 2014
- Check-in must be before or on February 28th 2015
- This Promotional rate is Pre-Paid, Non-Cancellable and Non-Transferable
- The full amount of your booking will be charged by the hotel at the time the booking is made
- If your booking is the 1 of 10 that is free, you will be alerted via email confirmation
- Bookings can be made using VISA, MasterCard, or American Express
- Guests will receive their AMEX Prepaid Gift Card per booking, not per night
- Separate consecutive night bookings at the same hotel will not result in the guest receiving more than one AMEX gift card
- A Maximum of 3 bookings per person is enforced – all subsequent bookings will be converted into normal Best Available Rate bookings (and will apply the corresponding Terms and Conditions) and the guest will not receive an AMEX Prepaid Gift Card
- beVancouver Terms and Conditions Apply
Tips and notes:
- These rates are prepaid and non-cancelable so be sure of your plans before booking.
- If staying multiple nights, you’ll have to change hotels each night to maximize this deal.
- Rates (and likely the gift card you’ll receive) are denominated in CAD not USD. Last year when they ran a very similar deal the gift card, although in CAD, could be spent at merchants in both Canada and the US. I’m guessing that’s also the case this time but you should confirm with beVancouver if concerned.
- You’ll have to pay taxes on the full rate.
Chipotle Halloween Fundraiser
Finally, if you’re dressing up and will be near a Chipotle in the evening, drop in for a nice discount: get a burrito, bowl, salad, or order of tacos for $3. Chipotle will donate proceeds to The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.
Have a safe holiday!
