I’ve written before about Travelpony, which is kind of a social media hotel discount website. I’ve used it twice, once at JFK and once in Hong Kong, getting deep discounts through a combination of an already discounted price and promotional credits.
They’re now offering a $35 credit to new users through the end of the year, if you use my referral link. That’s better than the $25 it had been! I don’t use this site when staying at a major chain hotel, as you won’t accrue loyalty points when it’s booked through Travelpony. When it’s a smaller chain or non-chain hotel, however, this can bring huge savings. Check it out!
