Vancouver Hotels Credit Card Bonus Promotion

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

The best offers don’t happen all the time, but they do every once in a while. And they happened again in January and early February in 2023.

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 was the case a few weeks a couple of times in 2022 and again from January until the middle of February in 2023. The bonus perks during those campaigns were Mastercard gift cards and, when the supply of cards ran out, the campaign ended.

During the most recent credit card-related campaign you could earn between $50 and $125 per night for a two-night stay (so between $100 and $250 total). The gift cards per night were worth $50, $75, $100 or $125 depending on which hotel you chose.

Below we’ll explain in detail how the gift card promotion works when it happens. First though we’ll give you some examples from a previous campaign of what you can expect to pay for some hotels. The deals we describe below were valid as of the first week of October in 2022.

Some hotels in Vancouver are expensive, but some are surprisingly cheap, 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 can be 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. 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 1st in 2022 we checked hotel prices for participating downtown Vancouver hotels for October 8th and 9th (so on the Thanksgiving Weekend). We looked for hotel rooms for two adults for two nights. When then did the same for a stay on the weekend of November 4th and 5th. See below for examples of what we found.

In the first week of October we also checked out hotel prices for the Friday and Saturday of November 4th and 5th, just to get an idea of what prices were like on a non-holiday weekend in autumn of 2022. Below are some of the deals we found for a two-night stay including all taxes and fees.

  • Westin Bayshore Vancouver– $555.78 for a room for two nights with a king-sized bed (minus $250 in gift cards).

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.


About the Bonus Gifts, Availability and Rates

  • Sometimes StayVancouverHotels.com’s credit card deal is for one or two-night stays. With the campaign running in January 2023, however, it’s just for two-night stays. You have to book a two nights in a row at the same hotel to qualify.
  • With the most recent gift card promotional campaign, reservations made at participating hotels have to be for stays between January 5th and April 30th in 2023.
  • Hotel rooms qualifying for the gift card promotion when it’s offered 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!
  • 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 $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.
  • 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 2023, during the most recent credit card promotion, reservations are cancellable up to 48 hours prior to your stay. That is very reassuring during the global pandemic.




When Making Your Reservation and Payment

  • For qualifying stays during their credit card campaigns you usually 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).
  • 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 per might. 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. (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 when the campaigns are in effect. A couple might offer $50 per night for your two-night stay. Others $75, some $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, 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 recent $50 to $125 Mastercard gift card rebate offer, you need to go directly to the StayVancouverHotels.com website.
