Our Verdict

Gyft deals are especially nice since you’ll get 5x or 3x with the Chase INK cards when paying with Paypal. Doesn’t look like Gyft is available on any shopping portals. Hotels.com gets better when you stack other deals as well, more info on that here.

It’s no longer possible to combine gcs bought on third party sites like raise. They’ve ended the very useful and quick online combine cards function. Now you have to call and they ask a series of questions like… How much was the card originally worth? When was it activated? Etcetera. Obviously impossible to know these things if you bought “used” cards. They’ve changed the terms without legally making changes in the terms… And predictably they claim it’s for my security. Please. What a$$hats.

Adding.. making it impossible to combine cards severely limits the utility of these cards as you can only use one card per purchase.

If you use a gift card on a refundable hotel and then cancel that hotel, they’ll generate a brand new gift card for your refund. Then you’ll have the original date & amount. It’s a pain, but it’s a helpful trick for future use. A call to merge cards takes less than 5 minutes, I’ve done it quite a few times now.

I’ll try this… They clearly got scammed somehow (probably people laundering money), and their reaction is to hammer everyone instead of policing bad behavior. I really hate it when that happens.

Interesting. That seems to have worked. I guess you could do this with every third-party hotels.com GC, though it seems a real pity to jump the hurdle: Book a hotel for roughly the total of the card. Cancel booking. Launder card. I’m considering doing this now with a large GC… I’ll comment if I do it…

Glad to hear my tip helped. I really don’t understand what hotels.com thinks they’re preventing with this new system…

Hotels.com GCs on Raise are actually new first party cards. They’re one of the handful of companies that sell directly on Raise, which is also why you can’t list your own hotels.com GCs on Raise.

That does not change the fact that you can’t combine the cards. The rep on the phone asks ‘when was the card activated’ and the answer is NOT ‘today when I bought it in Raise.’ not a bug a feature. They don’t want to allow you to combine so they ask a series of difficult but irrelevant questions and say ‘sorry, buddy! I have policies!’ But not before eating twenty minutes of your life.

Adding: I spoke with two mangers and it still didn’t help… No traction, so HUCB doesn’t work.

I use Hotels.com quite frequently on bookings for my employees and currently have about $6k in $100 gift cards (purchased with discount from an authorized vendor). The “merge-tool” had been a godsend and since the disappearance many months ago, it’s been a pain having to call in everytime to combine gift cards. However, with all the correct information ready and if I get the right, competent person I can often do 10 or more at a time.

To clarify: “Gift cards are only redeemable in the U.S.” I guess this means you have to be in the U.S. to do the redemption process. However they can be redeemed for hotels overseas (as you’d expect, but the fine print seemed ambiguous).
