1890

Hi guys,

First time I post a deal on Ozbargain and I am not an English native so sorry if there is some mistakes…

I found this deal on Dealabs.com, a french like of Ozbargain.

Basically, book any hotel on Booking.com for a minimum amount of 225€ (338 AUD) and get 75€ (112.5 AUD) Back.

You have to click on the link and check that there is an insert below with this message:
"Book now and get € 75 back!
All you have to do is book and you'll get € 75 back after your stay! Minimum booking cost € 225."

Referral: random (201)

Referrer and referee get AUD $15-$30 after a booking which is at least twice the value of the referral bonus.

    how does it work? booking price is automatically deducted?

    •  

      No, it's a cashback on your CB after your stay.

      •  

        cashback or store creditback?
        As in, does the €75 go back into my bank account/card where I can use it to buy other things, or does it go on my booking.com account and can only spend it on other bookings at booking.com?

    •  

      Looks to be a sort of 'store credit' from what I can tell.

      Edit. My bad I read incorrectly, the credit is forfeited if you do not supply them with a card linked to your login. It does go back as credit to your card.

      No, you pay full price and get that 75 euro credited into your credit card after your stay. Please note that it's best not to use Amex for this deal as this is in T&C "American Express is not currently an accepted credit card."

    Screenshot the offer page also.

    Have had many issues with these sorts of deals over my life.

  •  

    Anyone had experience with these sort of promos from bookings.com? How long can we expect to get the cashback into our accounts?

      From the previous US$40 back offer, I received an email from booking.com the day I checked out/got back asking for my credit card details as follows:

      Welcome back!
      We hope you enjoyed your trip! Now that you've stayed, it's time to cash in on the reward we promised.
      Note: We can put your rewards money faster on Visa cards due to recent changes in Mastercard regulations. Although not all Mastercard credit/debit cards are affected, at this time we cannot guarantee that your rewards money will be paid on Mastercard.

      I entered Visa details on Sunday and got the cash on my credit card Tuesday. I didn't try AmEx, I thought I'd just enter Visa to be safe as AmEx wasn't issued above.

      I booked something last week but it's for a stay in October. So, don't know how long.
      BUT, did receive this email probably 3 days after the booking:
      "Receiving your € 75 reward from Booking.com

      We hope you have a great trip! After your stay, you will receive an email on receiving your € 75 reward from Booking.com. The reward is paid on your preferred credit card and sent to you shortly afterwards.

      Earn money by referring your friends

      Now that you've booked, why not earn yourself a little extra spending money for your trip? Refer your friends yourself, and you'll get a reward each time one of them books and stays (max 10 friends) - your friend will get the reward too!

      To get earning, simply share the link below with your friends."

    I'd rather have up front discount TBH…all these cashback things aren't all that reliable especially if you happen to use a coupon to book. Nowadays I pretty much just bother with CheapTickets 16% off.

    • +2 votes

      yup agree, but good thing about this deal it (seems) to work on all hotels including those that the 16% dont work on, namely the big branded hotels

  •  

    I had similar experience to hamza23. Would recommend.

  •  

    Do you have to book in Euros?

    Does the card you book with have to be the same card presented to the hotel to get the cash-back?

  •  

    Could this be over multiple nights?

  •  

    Do I have to be the first time user? I have already had account and booked hotels before. If I go through the link and book with my account, can I still get cash back?

  •  

    So, do I book and pay in AUD, but I get a refund in pounds? Should I use my 28 degrees for the booking (it is a mastercard though)? Does a refund of pounds get charged a international transaction fee if I don't use my 28 degrees card? So many question :(

    Thanks, just cancelled my reservation I had on Wotif (free cancellation) and re-booked the same hotel via this deal.

  •  

    You can request the refund to go to a different credit card than the one used to pay.

  •  

    Btw great first deal OP, thanks for the post.

  •  

    Hmmm I just booked with booking.com yesterday.

    I should just cancel the booking, and re-book yes?

    To check status:

    Go to Account Overview -> Free money! or click here

    Under "All Bookings" the promotion will show as follows:

    Friend Booking Status
    You 26 Jul 2017 € 75 coming up! You'll get your reward after your stay is confirmed

    My checkout date is 24 July 2017 so I assume it means they will pay the cashback +2 days.

    Is there a booking period for this deal? I had a quick look at the T&C's but didn't see anything..

  • +1 vote

    just recently booked with these guys and cashback didnt track. Waiting on cash rewards to follow it up.

    • +1 vote

      This has nothing to do with cash rewards. This is cash back from booking.com directly to your credit card.

  •  

    Can you use this more than once???

  •  

    how to go to this via cash rewards, for cash rewards, don't you have to open the exact page via the cash rewards site?

  • +1 vote

    After looking into this a lot closer it seems to be a bit of a have

    For example,
    Grand Mercure Phuket Patong from 10/10/17 to 15/10/17 (5 nights) is AUD$787 if I go through the Ozbargain link. so AU$787 - EUR75 is AU$675

    Alternatively, buying this through the australian expedia is $664. So its actually cheaper if I dont use the discount.

      Yes always shop around when booking hotels. I booked a hotel the other day with Priceline.com which was several hundred cheaper than all the big guys for a 1 week stay. Booking confirmation email came from Agoda. Next day I'm seeing Agoda ads everywhere for my hotel so I have a peek… not only is my hotel $50 cheaper it includes breakfast whereas my original booking did not. Thank you very much free cancellation policy and the breakfasts they're "paying us" $50 to eat. ;-)
      Just had a sticky beak again for same hotel with this deal… it's $500 more than I paid, and without breakfast. So yea, nah.

  •  

    Thanks OP.

    Cancelled my booking a did a few days ago, and just re-booked to save the ~$112.

  •  

    Dang. Just completed a $350 stay! Oh well. Amazing find.

  •  

    Great deal, have a holiday coming up next month!

  •  

    Just one question, Can I book more than one hotel together worth more than €225?

  •  

    I've booked it using the link and clicking the thing at the bottom.

    No confirmation as of yet in regards to the cash back.

    Will get the missus to make an account for other accommodation :D.

  •  

    You're a legend! Saved me €75!
    Tip for everyone: Even if overseas, ALWAYS check OzBargain!

  •  

    Thanks Op. Just booked! Lets hope I get the cash back after!

    The message in the confirmation page I recieve is below:

    "Get € 75 back once your stay has been verified!"

  •  

    So does this need to be one hotel only, or can you book several hotels up to $350+ value?

  •  

    Does it have to be booked in euro or is aud ok ?

  • +1 vote

    Will I ever find my one true love?

  •  

    I made a booking for a relative via the €75 link today and there is a banner now showing the promo status in AUD ($111.60):

  •  

    Can anyone confirm amex won't work with this offer? I've got an amex and a visa only. But the visa is a balance transfer card so I won't use it.

  •  

    I've used Mastercard. Got email notification I will get 75 euros back once I've made my trip. Thanks OP!

  •  

    Can't believe I missed this offer previously. Thanks OP.

  •  

    Do I have to pay the whole stay with bookin.com or can I pay at the hotel?

  •  

    Does this work for flights booked from the website?

  •  

    Just booked on the weekend, Thanks OP! now waiting for the email to confirm the 75 euro will be in my CC, on completion of stay.

  •  

    Old account no email confirmation new account got email confirmation this for new accounts only ?

    • +1 vote

      It's for both. New account received instant confirmation. Old account received confirmation about a week later, followed by the same confirmation repeatedly sent thereafter. Odd. Follow this rather than relying on e-mail.
