TravelPony Stackable Discounts for Potentially 55% Off Hotels
UPDATE on 9/21/2014: Code FALL6 gives 6% off (use instead of DOD5). Valid today only.
Year-old travel booking site TravelPony is offering some nice discounts to celebrate its birthday.
Currently there are two codes that can be combined to potentially yield 55% off the room rate:
- TPSAVINGS for up to 50% off.
- DOD5 for 5% off.
Not all hotels are discounted by 50% (some are as low as 10%), but my random searches turned up quite a few in the 30% or more range.
Below is a random example. I was able to find many other good deals, both domestic and international.
For the 4-star Eldorado Hotel Casino in Reno, the standard rate is $51 for the night. Using code TPSAVINGS for 40% off and DOD5 for 5% off results in a pre-tax rate of $28 (ultimately 45% off).
Do comparison shop just in case. I did not find a cheaper alternative to this example overall, but I did see a cheaper (by $7) pre-discount rate on Orbitz.
Save even more?
If you have a $35 credit from signing up through a referral source it will also combine with TPSAVINGS (but not with DOD5) for a potentially even better discount. In my example it results in a free (pre-tax) hotel stay.
The above screenshot is from an account which is “grandfathered” to give a $35 credit on any booking. I believe referral credits are now only valid on bookings of $200+.
Even if you aren’t spending $200+ this time, it makes sense to use a signup offer and just save the credit in your account for future use. So find a friend with a working referral link, or feel free to use mine (thanks 🙂 ).
