There is yet another great hotel booking discount promotion, this time Hot Wire is offering $30 USD off when you book a 4-star or higher "Hot Rates" hotel. The promotion says it will go until March 2, 2015, but these deals often end sooner due to popularity.
This could be a great way to book some cheaper hotels for almost free as there is no minimum reservation amount. To maximize the deal you can book one night stays back-to-back and the $30 off will apply each night.
All you need to do is go to Hot Wire and search for a hotel.
On the results page of your hotel search you will see a tab for "Secret Hot Rate Hotels." Click this and you will only be shown opaque hotels that qualify for the promotion, now you can go ahead and book any 4-star or high hotel and the discount will be automatically applied.
The only caveat is that the promotion only applies to Hot Wire's "Hot Rates" which offer a "mystery" or opaque hotel. You're given the number of stars and general vicinity within the city, but won't know the name of the hotel until after booking.
Of course if you are booking single nights you can decide if you like the hotel and want to book more nights once you make the first reservation and are given the hotels name. It's is also often possible to figure out which hotel you're booking with a little digging.
This Hot Wire promotion is a great way to save on upcoming hotel stays and by booking one night reservations you can have the $30 discount applied each night. There is no minimum, so technically you should be able to book a night for almost free if you can find a hotel cheap enough.
