Want to Book a Hotel at 60% Off? This Year’s Hottest Cyber Monday Hotel Deals
I’m a budget traveler with a serious love for hotels.
After spending many years surfing couches and staying in shared hostel dorms, I get really excited to spend the night in a hotel room. Especially a nice one.
My budget, though, is quite the opposite; it prefers I opt for a tent or a hostel.
One thing my budget and I can both agree on? Cyber Monday hotel deals.
Each year, I eagerly await the release of these discounted prices, as they mean I get to live out my hotel dreams -- while paying much less than I normally would.
If you’re like me and looking forward to some hotel getaways in the next year, here are 10 hotel chains offering Cyber Monday deals.
1. Best Western Cyber Monday Deals
When booking and staying at a Best Western between now and Feb. 7, 2016, you’ll receive at at least 10% off the “best value” rate at 1,200 participating North American hotels.
Best Western Rewards members who register here will receive 500 bonus points with every qualified stay -- and an additional 1,000 points if they use the Best Western mobile app to make their booking.
Free room redemptions start at 8,000 points per night, so 1,500 points isn’t a bad start.
Stacking deals when booking a hotel… Love it.
2. Choice Hotels Cyber Monday Deals
So it’s not a Cyber Monday sale, per se, but Choice Hotels is still running a pretty great promotion.
When you join its Choice Privileges program, you’ll earn 4,000 points -- and if you stay at one of its 5,500 hotels before Dec. 11, 2015, you’ll earn an additional 4,000 points.
That means you’ll have 8,000 points, which is enough for a free night at more than 1,500 locations.
Kind of like a buy one, get one deal, right?
3. Destination Hotels Cyber Monday Deals
Planning a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras? How about a ski trip to Vail?

5. Hilton Cyber Monday Deals

Only properties in the U.S., Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean are participating, and travel must be completed between Dec. 20, 2015 and Feb. 29, 2016.
6. Howard Johnson Cyber Monday Deals
Putting its own spin on things is good ol’ HoJo.

Be warned: Only the first three people to book will receive the discounted rate. If you see a hotel you want to stay at, make sure you call it directly just after midnight EST on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015. Stays must be completed by Mar. 2, 2016.
7. IHG Cyber Monday Deals
The Penny Hoarder is headquartered in Florida, and as a New Yorker, let me tell you: Winter here is not winter.
If you want to escape real winter, IHG’s Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand is offering 25% off the Best Flex rate at resorts in Orlando, Panama City, Marco Island and Cape Canaveral -- all in Florida.
The promotion runs between Nov. 30 and Dec. 31, 2015 and applies to stays between Dec. 2, 2015 and Feb. 29, 2016.

10. Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Cyber Monday Deals
SPG’s Cyber Monday sale runs from Nov. 23 through Dec. 6, with discounts of up to 25% at more than 1,000 locations -- and as much as 50% at certain locations. Stays through Sep. 6, 2016 are eligible for the promotion.
Even better, SPG members receive an additional 5% discount. Not a member yet? It’s free to join.
I don’t know about you, but some of these Cyber Monday hotel deals are looking pretty good to me and my budget.
