Downtown Vancouver Hotels Visa Credit Card Bonus Promotions

Vancouver Hotels Credit Card Bonus Promotion

StayVancouverHotels.com often offers what we believe is the best deal for hotels in downtown Vancouver. Prices can be less than $100 for some places!


SAVE ON STAYS BETWEEN NOW AND FEBRUARY 2021!

StayVancouverHotels is currently offering a special promotion where guests get $50, $75, $100 or $125 in Visa credit card gift cards for their reservation and initial stay, plus a $50 bonus gift card per additional night at participating hotels. That’s a phenomenal deal! And the offer is happening right now (as of October 13th, 2020).

This is a limited time offer and may end at any time. While the promotion is running, for stays between now and February 28th, 2021, you can get the Visa gift card bonuses. What’s more? Reservations can be cancelled up to 48 hours prior to check-in (so if you change your mind later, you can)!

We booked a stay for ourselves at the Pinnacle Harbourfront for November. The cost after taxes and our $100 Visa gift card rebate was $68.26! And that included free parking! That’s an incredible deal! See below for other examples of fabulous prices we’ve found.

For details see the StayVancouverHotels.com website and choose the Visa promo offer.

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, now is one of the best times to book a hotel in downtown Vancouver through StayVancouverHotels.com. Why? Because they are offering Visa gift cards worth between $50 and $125 when you make a reservation. You can earn that much on your first night’s stay and $50 for every additional night (up to a maximum of 4 extra nights). With some hotels charging less than $100 prior to rebates, that is a crazy good deal!

Below we’ll explain in detail how the credit card gift card promotion works. First though we’ll give you some examples of what you can expect to pay for some 2.5, 3, 4 and 4.5-star hotels.

Some hotels in Vancouver are expensive, but some are surprisingly cheap, especially in the slower seasons. After getting your bonus credit gift card though, the savings are especially impressive!


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 (in the spring). When they offer the credit card bonuses though, that can be the best time to make a reservation!

Vancouver Hotel Deals We Found

On October 13th, 2020, we checked hotel prices for participating downtown Vancouver hotels for the Halloween weekend of October 30th to November 1st (so for a Friday, Saturday and Sunday). We looked for hotel rooms for two adults for one night. Below are examples of just a few of the deals we found.

  • Ramada Vancouver Downtown (2.5-Star) – $98 minus a $50 Visa gift card (so $48 total, or $68.15 including taxes and fees).
  • Sandman Suites Vancouver (3-Star) – $128 minus a $75 Visa gift card (so $53 total, or $75.85 including taxes and fees).
  • Residence Inn by Marriott (3-Star) – $159 minus a $75 Visa gift card (so $84 total, or $112.21 including taxes and fees).
  • Delta Hotels Vancouver Downtown (4-Star) – $189 minus a $100 Visa gift card (so $89 total, or $122.53 including taxes and fees).
  • Sheraton Wall (4-Star) – $209 minus a $100 Visa gift card (so $109 total, or $145.58 including taxes and fees).
  • Sutton Place (4.5-Star) – $179 minus a $100 Visa gift card (so $79 total, or $110.03 including taxes and fees).
  • Fairmont Vancouver Hotel (4.5-Star) – $195 minus a $100 Visa gift card (so $95 total, or $126.20 including taxes and fees).

A Closer Look at the Prices

Yes, fees and taxes for the above hotels are extra, but the final prices are still fabulous deals. Take the 3-Star Sandman Suites Vancouver as an example. Taxes and fees for that hotel are about an extra $23, which brings the final price up to about $151. If you deduct the value of your $75 Visa gift card, your stay costs you just $76 for the night! That’s a fabulous price!

How about the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel? It’s arguably Vancouver’s most iconic hotel, with 4.5 stars, and the room comes with a king-sized bed. After taxes, fees and the Visa gift card rebate, for the night of October 30th, a stay costs just $126.20 (or $95 before the taxes and fees). And that is for two adults at the Fairmont Vancouver! That’s such a great price!

How about the final net price for the Residence Inn by Marriott (which although has just 3 stars, is, in our opinion, a really nice place and under rated)? Including taxes, fees and the Visa gift card rebate, a night in a suite there (in a studio with a queen-sized bed, sofa couch and kitchenette) costs just $112.21!

Vancouver Christmas Hotel Deals

How about in December, in the heart of the busy (and expensive) Christmas season? What are downtown hotel prices through StayVancouverHotels.com like then?

Again on October 13th, 2020, we checked out rates. This time we looked for hotel rooms for a family of four (with 2 adults and 2 kids) and the date we chose was Saturday, December 19th (so the first weekend of school winter holidays). Below are some of the fabulous deals we found.

  • Days Inn (2.5-Star) – $79 minus a $50 Visa gift card (so $29 total, or $42.83 including taxes and fees). That’s less than 50 bucks!
  • Coast Coal Harbour by APA (4-Star) – $151.20 minus a $75 Visa gift card (so $76.20 total, or $102.66 including taxes and fees).
  • Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront (4-Star) – $151.20 minus a $100 Visa gift card (so $51.20 total, or $77.67 including taxes and fees).
  • Hyatt Regency (4-Star) – $167.20 minus a $100 Visa gift card (so $67.20 total, or $96.46 including taxes and fees).
  • Pan Pacific (4.5-Star) – $219 minus a $125 Visa gift card (so $94 total, or $132.33 including taxes and fees).
  • Fairmont Waterfront Hotel (4.5-Star) – $229 minus a $125 Visa gift card (so $104 total, or $140.64 including taxes and fees).

But how do these prices compare with rates on other travel websites like Expedia and Travelocity? We did a search on Trivago for a family of four staying in downtown Vancouver on the night of Saturday, December 19th.

The best rate we could find for the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel via Trivago was on Fairmont’s own website for $273.89 (including taxes), which was actually pretty good given the time of year. The price was slightly more on Expedia. The same deal through StayVancouverHotels.com though, after all taxes, fees and Visa card rebates, came out at just $140.64! That’s almost half the next lowest price!

(Note: Not all hotel prices through StayVancouverHotels.com will blow the competition out of the water. Especially with the current Visa gift card promotion, however, a surprising number will! The deals are considerable!)

Important Notes about StayVancouverHotels.com and the 2020 Visa Gift Card Promotion

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.

About the Bonus Gifts, Availability and Rates

  • With the most recent Visa gift card promotional campaign, stays at participating hotels between October 13th and the end of February (2021) qualify for the $50 to $125 Visa gift card bonuses. That period of time includes the Remembrance Day Long Weekend, the Christmas holidays, New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day and the Family Day Long Weekend!
  • Hotel rooms qualifying for the gift card promotion are limited and the best deals, especially for peak-demand dates, get scooped up quick. If you want the best rates and selection of accommodation types, especially around stat holidays, book as early as you can!
  • The current Visa bonus offer is a limited-time promotion. It starts on October 13th. Last year they had a similar campaign and it ended just over two weeks after it started. That means that although stays as far in the future as February 2021 qualify for the $50 to $125 gift card rebates, you need to book your stay while the offer is still valid.
  • You can find really good rates on the StayVancouverHotels.com website at most times of the year, but especially when they offer their $50 to $125 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. Occasionally, in some cases, a 4 or 4.5-star luxury resort can actually cost less than a 3-star hotel! That’s what you want to look out for!
  • 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 or not even so special. 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 2020, during the current Visa card promotion, reservations can be cancelled up to 48 hours prior to your stay. In today’s world of COVID-19, that’s very reassuring!

Visit the StayVancouverHotels.com website for more details, current prices and to book your stay.


When Making Your Reservation and Payment

  • For qualifying stays during their credit card campaigns 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 Visa credit cards (including at your hotel).
  • 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 $40 or more. 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 2020 Credit Card Bonus Campaign Details

  • Different hotels offer different credit card gift card dollar amounts when the campaigns are in effect. A couple might offer $50 for the first night. Others $75, some $100 and the rest $125. Generally the more expensive the hotel, the higher the value of the bonus gift. All hotels though offer just $50 per additional night’s stay up to a maximum of 4 additional nights total.
  • With the Visa promotion you can claim the reward for up to three separate reservations and pay for your stay with Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
  • If you make three separate bookings for the same hotel for three nights in a row, and that hotel offers a $125 Visa gift card for the first night, you won’t receive $125 for each of your nights. Nice try though! Whether you book all three nights separately or through three separate reservations, the hotel will give you $125 for one night and $50 for each of the following nights.
  • 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.

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 Visa) 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 $50 to $125 Visa gift card rebate offer, you need to go directly to the StayVancouverHotels.com website.
