Downtown Vancouver Hotels Credit Card Bonus Promotions

Hotels with StayVancouverHotels.com

StayVancouverHotels.com often offers what we believe is the best deal for hotels in downtown Vancouver. Prices can sometimes be less than $125 for some places!

The best offers don’t happen all the time, but they do every once in a while. One of the best deals is when StayVancouverHotels.com has a campaign when they give away credit card gift cards worth between about $75 and $125 per night. The deal was offered in late 2023 and then again in early 2024 (up until February 10th). It’ll be back again one day. When, however, we don’t know.

As of mid-February 2024, StayVancouverHotels.com isn’t giving away free credit card gift cards. Valuable bonus gifts you can get, however, include tickets to things like Vancouver’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, Canada Rugby Sevens games, the Vancouver International Wine Festival, FlyOver Canada, the BMO Vancouver Marathon, and other events and activities.

Unbelievable Gift Card Bonus Offers for Downtown Vancouver Hotels!

Whether you are visiting from out of town or you’re a local wanting a staycation, StayVancouverHotels.com is often the best way to book a hotel in downtown Vancouver. That’s especially the case when they have their credit card bonus gift campaigns.

That was the case from January to February in 2023, and then again between early November and late December that year, and then again until early February in 2024. The bonus perks then were Mastercard gift cards worth between $150 and $250.

During the most recent credit card-related campaign you could earn between $75 and $125 per night for a two-night stay (so between $150 and $250 total). The gift card values varied depending on the hotel you chose.

Below we’ll explain in detail how the gift card promotion works. First though we’ll give you some examples from a recent campaign of what you could expect to pay for some hotels. The deals we describe below were valid as of February 7th for hotels booked that day for stays between November 1st, 2023, and April 30th, 2024.

Some hotels in Vancouver are expensive, but some are surprisingly affordable, especially in the slower seasons (like in the fall, late winter and early spring). After getting your bonus credit gift card, the savings during the credit card deal could be especially impressive (even at the peak of the Christmas holidays)!


Note: StayVancouverHotels.com offers great deals on downtown hotels throughout the year. Usually you get a $25 gift card for something like Starbucks coffee per reservation, or sometimes discounted tickets for things like the Vancouver International Wine Festival. When they offer the credit card bonuses though, that can be the best time to make a reservation!

Vancouver Hotel Deals We Found

On February 7th in 2024 we checked hotel prices for participating downtown Vancouver hotels for February 14th and 16th (so for Valentine’s Day and the following Thursday night). We looked for hotel rooms for two adults for two nights. See below for examples of what we found.

As you’ll see, prices worked out to less than $150 per night for a number of places, and that’s including all taxes and fees. And a couple cost only about $100 per night! Some of Vancouver’s nicest hotels were also very reasonable. And these are just a few examples. Lots of hotels are offering similar deals!

Important Notes about StayVancouverHotels.com and the Credit Card Gift Card Promotions

There are a number of important things to know and consider about the credit gift card promotions when they happen through StayVancouverHotels.com. Below is additional information and some useful tips for the past winter 2024 campaign.


About the Bonus Gifts, Availability and Rates

  • Sometimes StayVancouverHotels.com’s credit card deal is for a one or a two-night stay. With the campaign running in early 2024, however, it was just for two-night stays. You had to book two nights in a row at the same hotel to qualify.
  • Reservations made at participating hotels had to be for stays between January 5th, 2024 and April 30th, 2024.
  • Hotel rooms qualifying for the gift card promotion are limited and the best deals, especially for peak-demand dates, usually get scooped up quick. If you want the best rates and selection of accommodation types, especially around stat holidays, you have to book as early as you can!
  • When it happens, the credit card bonus offer is a limited-time promotion. Once all the cards are given away, the campaign ends.
  • You can find really good rates on the StayVancouverHotels.com website at most times of the year, but especially when they offer their credit card bonuses. You have to look carefully through the list of hotel offerings though to find the very best deals. That’s because some places, on a given date, are priced more competitively than others.
  • Prices aren’t ridiculously low for all hotels on the StayVancouverHotels.com website (although a good number are). Rates for some hotels are incredible, some are good, and some are just okay. It all depends on the hotel and its room availability. On average though the prices you’ll find are very competitive. And if you look through the full list of hotels, you’ll see some places offering amazing deals you likely won’t find anywhere else!
  • In 2024, during the credit card promotion in January and February, reservations were cancellable up to 48 hours prior to your stay.




When Making Your Reservation and Payment

  • For qualifying stays you receive your gift cards at the time of check in at your hotel. You don’t have to wait weeks for the rebate to arrive in the mail, which is awesome. You get it right away, and you can spend it anywhere that accepts Mastercard credit cards (including at your hotel for your stay).
  • When making your reservation online, double check the details carefully. Are you selecting the correct dates, type of room and number of occupants? And does the confirmation page show the correct bonus offer (given that credit gift card bonuses aren’t the only option). Make sure everything is correct before clicking “confirm.”
  • Also before selecting a place to stay and then clicking “confirm,” double check the final price. Depending on the hotel and basic room rate, taxes and fees can cost between about $25 and $50 or more per night. A small number of the hotels though charge a fair bit in extra fees, like occasionally as much as over $100 including taxes. The final price might still be a good deal, overall, but not as good as it might initially appear or as great as some of the other hotels.

More Credit Card Bonus Campaign Details

Below is more information about StayVancouverHotels.com‘s amazing Mastercard gift card deal in 2024. (Note: Exact details are subject to change. See the official website for the most up-to-date terms and information.)

  • Different hotels offer different credit card gift card dollar amounts. Quite a few offer $75 per night for your two-night stay. Others $100 and a few $125. Generally the more expensive the hotel, the higher the value of the bonus gift.
  • With the Mastercard promotion you can claim the reward for up to three separate reservations and pay for your stay with the gift card, or any credit card.
  • Terms and conditions related to the credit card promotional campaign are subject to change at any time. See the official website for the most up-to-date details.
  • Be aware that the credit cards sometimes have expiry dates, so don’t hang on to your cards for a long time before spending them. After the expiry date on the card, they likely won’t have any value left. Also, after a certain period of time, the cards can incur a monthly fee (of about $2.50). If you use your gift card within a few months of receiving it, you have nothing to worry about. If you forget about it or hold onto it for a year or more, however, the card might lose some or all of its value.

Hotel Deals Through Travel Websites

  • How can they offer such good deals!? StayVancouverHotels.com works directly with an association of downtown Vancouver hotels. It promotes just them, and the website doesn’t charge the hotels as much in commission as big multinational travel websites do. And when the program partners with a credit card company (like Mastercard) and provides extra big bonuses, the credit card company helps subsidize the promotion.
  • If you do a search for downtown Vancouver hotel rooms using travel websites like Trivago, they won’t show you the rates available on StayVancouverHotels.com (not even in the many cases when they are clearly the best). To find deals like the current Mastercard gift card rebate offer, you need to go directly to the StayVancouverHotels.com website.
