Thanks I just followed the link and booked a room in Galway You have to tick on a box on the booking page to "Use this card for your reward". So the $40 is refunded to the credit card that you use to purchase, AFTER you checkout of the hotel supposedly.
I'll try and post back when I get the money next week
Have you seen the T&Cs. They are paying you to do a good bit of work after your stay.
Create Account(if not already)
I've two bookings for the next 3 weeks but the price is higher now than I paid so I could save a small bit but don't fancy the hoops to jump through after my holiday.
Is it paid directly back onto your card, or added as credit to your account for a future Bookings.com purchase? I can't seem to find any reference to it in the T&C's.
Back to the card
Don't think thats the case. Its just generic t&cs that cover a lot of their different offers. Some involve booking through app, some involve reviewing this one just involves a eligible booking. At least that's my reading of it.
Is Free cancelation excluded?
Doesn't look like. I get free cancelation but still says I'm eligible for the reward.
Brilliant will give it a go now thanks
Thanks op just used this. Cancelled a place I'd already booked and rebooked to get the offer.
Do u have to book in USD?
Went for the deal for a weekend in Belfast which I was planning anyway. Will hopefully get it credited back a few days after the stay.
Just a word of warning when booking with booking.com .Always check your bank a/c because twice that I booked with them that I would pay when I got there and twice they took the full money & the last time they actually took it 3 times .Took a long time to get it sorted with them blaming the hotel and hotel blaming them.
I'm sure it's a rare occupancy but just wanted to warn people
Not that rare, has happened to me too. Had to go through so many hoops to get it back I gave up.
Happened me too. I pushed and pushed got the money back and €200 in compensation.
