Overview

Rather than a points and miles system with other travel rewards cards, you’ll earn rewards through a stamp loyalty program with the Hotels.com® Rewards Visa® Credit Card. For every 10 stamps you collect, you’ll earn a reward night worth up to $110. By booking hotel stays and spending $500 or more on your card, you can earn stamps in no time. This card is a great introduction into the world of travel rewards as it offers a simple rewards system, plenty of travel benefits and no annual fee to worry about.

Pros

  • No annual fee
  • Earn rewards nights from your credit card spend and when staying at eligible hotels (must pay taxes and fees)
  • No foreign transaction fees

Cons

  • You can only redeem for hotel stays through Hotels.com platform rather than directly booking with a hotel
  • Your rewards are limited to hotel stays and cannot be redeemed for cash back or other travel purchases
  • There are no bonus rewards on certain everyday purchases, like groceries or restaurant

Who is this card good for?

While you can open a hotel credit card with one major hotel brand, you’ll open up your options by applying for the Hotels.com® Rewards Visa® Credit Card. You can choose from thousands of properties — big or small — that will suit your lifestyle needs, whether you’re a solo or family traveler. This is the ideal card for someone who travels from time to time but not enough to build elite status with one hotel chain, as you’ll also earn stamps from spend on everyday purchases with your credit card as well.

Earning Rewards

By spending $500 on your Hotels.com card, you’ll earn one stamp. You’ll need 10 stamps to unlock one hotel night. This essentially means that every $5,000 in purchases will equate to your reward night. Of course, you can also earn 1 stamp for every night you stay at any eligible property booked on Hotels.com, with each paid night equivalent to one stamp. You can mix and match everyday spending and hotel bookings so you can earn stamps toward your reward night.
