Travelocity $30-$40 Off, Earn Lyft Credit with TravelPony, and I Provoked Karma
Happy first weekend in October!
I am currently staying at a hotel, which will remain nameless, whose clientele I can only describe as – to be polite – trashy (for many reasons beyond the example below). How I ended up booking it is another story (let’s just say it was practically free after combining several promotions), but it seemed a solidly-ranked 3-star across several websites. I also read independent reviews and none raised red flags.
Apparently do-not-disturb signs are scarce here. But there was one in my room and I hung it outside my door when I arrived. Later I heard scratching on my door and someone mumbling something (probably an expletive). Of course I did not open the door.
That evening, when I left the room for dinner, my do-not-disturb sign was gone. After a quick glance, I saw it hanging on the room next door. (I know it was “my” sign due to a unique mark.)
Instead of calling housekeeping to request a sign, the neighbors apparently just helped themselves to mine – which I’d put there for a reason. Classy.
Now, I could’ve just taken it back. But I didn’t want to be spiteful, so I left it on their door.
However, when I came back from dinner I flipped it over to the other side – which says “early maid service please.”
Karma will probably bite me, but oh well. 🙂
Anyway, so as not to end on a rant, let me leave you with some travel deals for the weekend.
Travelocity mobile coupons
Travelocity is back with a couple of good discounts on hotels booked through the mobile app through tomorrow (October 5, 2014).
Use code MOBILE30FALL for $30 off $100+ and MOBILE40FALL for $40 off $150+.
They often limit these discounts to first-time app bookings, but I did not see that requirement in the fine print this time. There are excluded properties though, so as always be sure to read the terms.
Lyft credit for stays booked through TravelPony
Speaking of apps, travel booking site TravelPony, which I recently wrote about, is out with one.
Enjoy the remaining weekend.
