AMEX StayVancouver Offer
I have read your post regarding the StayVancouver Offer for various hotels in downtown Vancouver. I am planning to travel there in Dec and are planning to stay in downtown Vancouver for about 3 nights. Some of the offers claim “CAD 125 gift card for the first night, and CAD 50 gift card for every subsequent night” or something. The thing is, can’t I just book each night separately as one booking, and use different credit cards for each? Then wouldnt each night be “a new first night” and i can receive a separate 125 gift card? Can I do that and what are the risks associated with such strategies?
Thank you very much!
Are you suggesting staying at three separate hotels? That theoretically would work fine.
If you are staying at the same hotel, with three separate reservations – you run a few risks. First, technically you’ll have to check out each morning and check back in in the afternoon. No guarantee you’ll be put in the same room. Second, the hotel could see it’s the same person and proactively join your reservations, therefore making you not eligible for the $125.
