You are currently viewing TD Rewards hotel promotion: 10,000 bonus points ($50) when you book 3 nights in certain regions

The TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card’s record-high offer is an exceptional deal that everyone eligible should take advantage of before March 4th. If you’re one of the savvy travelers who’ve already taken advantage of it, here’s an exclusive hotel promotion from the TD Rewards program.

Here are the details of the TD Rewards hotel promotion — first, make sure you’ve read the basics of hotel promotions if you haven’t already!

 

Basics of the TD Rewards program

Usually, hotel promotions are offered by hotel rewards programs.

So typically these promotions are open to everyone, like the Marriott promotion or the Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy promotion.

This one, however, is a promotion from the TD Rewards program and is therefore exclusive to those who have TD Rewards points, bank rewards that require having a credit card associated with the program. 

Here are the 3 cards that earn TD Rewards points and thus allow you to take advantage of this hotel promotion.

The biggest advantage of hotel promotions from banking programs is that they give you access to hotels that are often cheaper than those from major hotel chains!

 

Overview of the TD Rewards hotel promotion

Here’s what the TD Rewards hotel promotion offers:

  • 10,000 bonus points
    • Fixed value of $50
    • In addition to the regular earn rate
  • On bookings of 3 nights minimum
    • No minimum price
  • In 3 regions only
    • Hawaii
    • Mexico
    • Caribbean
  • Can be stacked with the $100 TD Travel Credit

If you have a planned trip to one of these regions, for which we often spot flight deals, now’s the best time to use your $100 travel credit! In fact, the terms and conditions of the promotion don’t mention that the 2 are not stackable!

Here are the validity dates for the TD Rewards hotel promotion:

  • Stays before July 31, 2024
  • Bookings made until February 20, 2024

So it’s interesting for your trips over the next 5 months, but you need to book quickly! I’ll give you an example of the potential savings in the promotion analysis below.

Finally, here are the logistics of how to concretely take advantage of the TD Rewards hotel promotion:

  • No registration required
    • Unlike most promos
  • Book an eligible stay on Expedia for TD
    • 3 nights minimum in the right regions
  • Pay with cash using your TD card
    • Not with points
  • Receive a bonus of 10,000 TD Rewards points
    • In addition to regular 2 to 8 pts/$ (depending on the card)
  • Receive a $100 credit if your purchase is at least $500

Pro tip: the TD travel credit is offered per calendar year, not per membership year. This means you get 2 in your first year with the card. So if you used it in 2023, you’re entitled to another $100!

Analysis of the TD Rewards hotel promotion

Like almost all hotel promotions, it’s probably not worth planning a trip around the promo (i.e. making a trip just to take advantage of the promo).

But it can still be interesting! It’s not a bad discount at all, especially if you have a $100 TD travel credit to use on your TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card.

I’ll give you 2 concrete examples:

  • If you just want to get 3 nights and spend as little as possible in total
  • If you also want to take advantage of the $100 TD travel credit for a better return

Let’s say you’re headed to Bacalar, the favorite spot of our teammate Indira, who’s just did a 2-week girls trip in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico. You took advantage of a great Canada-Cancún deal in the $200s roundtrip, like the ones Flytrippers spots almost every week from many Canadian cities.

You go to Expedia for TD before February 20th to book a hotel in Mexico, a relatively affordable country — affordable if you avoid overpriced resorts and packages obviously.

You can choose a nice hotel rated 9.4/10 at $222 total for 3 nights ($111 per person for 2, or $37 per person per night). The minimum stay for the 10,000 bonus points is 3 nights.

You’ll earn:

TD Rewards points are worth 0.5¢/pt. That’s $59 back on your total of $222, or 27% back on your spending!

That’s already much better than the best possible return you can get with the flexibility of booking any hotel: the Hotels.com Rewards program, which always gives you 10% back.

But also, if you want to take advantage of your $100 TD travel credit, it can be even better. The credit will be automatically applied to your account if you haven’t used it yet in 2024, but you have to spend a minimum of $500 (after taxes).

So the same highly-rated hotel costs $517 total for 7 nights ($259 per person for 2, or $37 per night per person).

That’s 14,139 points (4,139 + 10,000) worth $71. Plus the $100 travel credit. That’s $171 on $517, or 33% back!!! That’s excellent.

Another way to look at it is that it comes to a net cost of $346 total for 7 nights ($517 minus $171). So, that’s $173 per person, or $25 per night per person.

Apart from the 22 free nights on the new increased offer on the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card, it’s hard to find a better deal for hotels!

I’ll say it again because it’s important: it’s completely false that traveling has to be expensive. If you want, it can be very affordable.

But you have to know how! Especially:

  • Take advantage of travel rewards
  • Choose affordable countries
  • Travel more economically
  • Avoid overpriced resorts/packages
  • Take the time to learn
  • Book things yourself

A roundtrip flight in the $200s and 7 nights’ hotel accommodation for a total of $173 per person doesn’t sound too expensive to me.

And just 1 welcome bonus like the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card, which gives you $925, easily erases all those expenses. And there are even cheaper hotels than that if you don’t want the ones rated 9+ out of 10, obviously.

Food and everything else will cost you less than what you would have spent on groceries/transport/activities here by not traveling, so it’s not even something to include in the budget — which should just include the additional cost compared to your normal expenses at home! It’s vital to take the time to do the math right for everything!
