Omni Hotels & Resorts 25% Bonus On Gift Cards

Filed Under: Hotels

Lately we’ve seen a lot of travel brands get creative when it comes to generating revenue. With so many businesses having liquidity issues, we’re seeing companies offer a deal if you pay now for travel later. We’ve seen many hotel brands sell gift cards at a discount, and Omni has just become the latest brand to do so.

Omni Hotels & Resorts is offering a 25% bonus when you purchase a gift card:

  • You can receive a $25 digital bonus for every $100 in gift cards purchased, up to a maximum of $4,000
  • You can purchase a physical or digital gift card, though the bonus will come in the form of a digital gift card no matter what
  • Omni gift cards are exclusively valid for stays at US properties
  • You can spend the extra dollars on anything you want, from room rate, to food, to spa services
  • Omni gift cards don’t expire, and I don’t see anything indicating that the bonus gift cards expire, though that’s also not stated explicitly
  • There’s no published end date for this promotion, so it could be pulled at any time

While I won’t personally be taking advantage of this promotion, I did try out the purchase process. I added a $1,000 digital gift card to my “cart,” and then the $250 in extra value was added automatically.

However, that came in the form of 10 bonus cards worth $25 each. I sure hope those are consolidated, or else using all of them at check-out during a hotel stay could be quite time consuming.

For those of you not familiar with Omni Hotels & Resorts, the group has roughly 60 properties in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Bottom line

Omni Hotels & Resorts is offering up to a 25% bonus on gift card purchases. If you’re a frequent Omni guest this could prove to be worthwhile, as it appears to me that the gift cards don’t have an expiration.

Personally I won’t be taking advantage of this. Perhaps for all the wrong reasons, Omni is one of the biggest hotel groups that I almost never think about. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed at an Omni, even though the company has dozens of hotels in North America.

Does anyone plan on taking advantage of this Omni gift card promotion?

  1. Thanks, Ben! Will be using these discounted cards towards 2 nights with Omni’s excellent current promo:

    “Save 30% on a stay before the end of August. Second, make that stay 2 nights or more and you’ll earn Platinum Level status valid through 2021.”

  2. @ stvr …. I’m not brand loyal to them, but they did take over the Grovepark Inn in Asheville, NC so would consider this promo as doesn’t appear to be time limit restrictions and we love the property. I would not however buy any speculatively for any other sites.

  3. There used to be many more of these mid-sized hotel chains before consolidation wrapped many of them into the mega-groups. Omni and Loews come to mind as still being around. Many still exist in the luxury space (ie. Auberge). Delta and Fairmont (formerly Canadian Pacific) were dominant independent chains in their home Canadian market prior to being swallowed up by Marriott and Accor, respectively.

  4. Each $25 bonus card prints separate. I bought ecards & the charge is to “E Gift Card.” I used my CFU – anyone else notice the new Chase dashboard?

    @ EC2 – the Asheville prop is my fav of Omni…I didn’t want to leave!
