How to Win $250!

Now the fun part.  How to win $250 towards your hotel stay.


You have until 11:59pm Eastern Time on October 30th to enter to win this prize.  One entry per person, please.

It’s easy.

  1. Sign-up for a membership with Hotel1Club through this link.
  2. Navigate to my old post and leave a comment letting me know where you’d love to travel to next.

You must do both of these to be eligible.  (I’ll be cross-checking the winner with the membership list–so try to use the same email address if possible!)

The website itself

This service is what Ed of Pizza in Motion has called the Costco of hotel websites.

You can get wholesale pricing for hotel rooms.

This means something really great and something not so great:

  1. Your room will be cheaper.
  2. You won’t earn elite status or points through your stay.

Some hotels will let you use your elite benefits while staying at wholesale pricing (Hyatt, for example, is good about this).  But you won’t earn anything.

I probably will stick to booking through Hyatt for cities where that property is available.  However, I wish I had been a member of this site back when I went to New Zealand.  The rates I’m getting are much, much lower than what I saw then (and what I’m seeing now, pulling things up).

So this is the type of product I would use situationally if you are going for elite status.  If you don’t care about elite status, then you probably want to use this website (but shop around for deals).

But don’t forget, to earn the $250 prize, you must:

1. Register here for a free 1-year membership to Club1Hotels

2. leave a comment (on the post linked to here) with your dream destination

Comments on this post won’t count towards the contest.
