Airport Hotel Tricks and Best Buy Reward Zone 100 free points

Posted on May 29, 2013 by in United Mileage Plus

Here is our daily deals for 05/28/2013

1. Hotel Tips and Tricks
If you are stuck at an airport overnight or want to stay in a hotel near an airport, this trick might help you to save some money. In certain cities, you can visit the baggage claim office and ask for a "distressed traveler certificate" that is designed for delayed customers. However, They won't check if your flight was actually delayed, they will just give you one. This voucher can get you a special rate of 20% to 30% off and is only valid for one night. There is a website on the voucher to show which hotels in the area participate and cost. This rate is a "fully eligible rate" so you will get bonus points, stay credit, elite status and any other benefits which makes it a lot more attractive than bookings on Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline and Orbitz.

The airports where the United Airlines baggage claim offices give out these certificates are as follows:
Atlanta
Baltimore
Chicago
Dallas
Denver
Fort Lauderdale
Los Angeles
Miami
Milwaukee
Minneapolis
New York
Orlando
St. Louis
San Francisco
Tampa
Washington D.C.
