When writing a few days ago about UPS My Choice Deals coming to an end, I mentioned at the end of that post that it wouldn’t necessarily be a huge loss.
That’s because UPS My Choice Deals was administered by BenefitHub and they white label their offers for other companies, some of which you can sign up for free of charge such as Home Place Rewards.
When taking a look at what else is offered by BenefitHub, I noticed that they advertise savings of up to 20% on Choice and Wyndham stays. I’m always dubious when it comes to headline rates such as those and, to be honest, you won’t save 20%. However, when doing a bunch of searches it seems like there are legit savings available, even if it’s not 20%.
- Use BenefitHub codes for savings on stays with Choice & Wyndham:
- Choice code – 00263630
- Wyndham code – 1000005930
- Register for free via Home Place Rewards.
- Enter Choice code in ‘Special Rate/Corporate ID’ box
- Enter Wyndham code in ‘Corporate Code’ box
When I first discovered these two promo codes a few days ago, I did a few searches and in each instance the BenefitHub rate was the lowest available. When doing different searches to take screenshots for this post, once again the BenefitHub rate offered the best savings.
For both hotel chains I figured I’d do searches for places people might be keen on visiting this summer. My first search with Wyndham was for Flagstaff seeing as that’s a popular place to stay when visiting the Grand Canyon.
I checked a number of properties and in each case BenefitHub came out cheaper than other rates. One example is the La Quinta seeing which has pretty good reviews and so you might be more inclined to stay there than a Super 8.
As you can see, the cheapest BenefitHub rate was $10 per night cheaper than the next non-BenefitHub rate. Even better, that $133.56 rate is a cancelable and refundable rate, versus the next cheapest rate of $143.10 which is non-refundable. The BenefitHub rate was also almost $20 per night cheaper than the “special” rate I get as a Wyndham Rewards Business Earner credit card holder.
My next search was in Chicago for a few days in August. There’s the Hotel Versey Days Inn which, despite being a Days Inn, has good reviews and is near Wrigley Field.
The savings weren’t as high this time, but it was still the cheapest available option and once again was a cancelable, refundable rate.
n.b. I’ve no clue why Wyndham always displays two different BenefitHub rates. The cancellation policies were always the same, so it’s not like one was refundable and one wasn’t.
I was curious as to whether the BenefitHub rate was better or worse than the AAA rate. It turns out that they might be exactly the same, or they were for the dates and properties I checked.
If you have a AAA membership, it might therefore not be worth plugging in the BenefitHub code. If you don’t have a AAA membership though and are wary of using that rate in case the front desk asks for proof of AAA membership when checking in, BenefitHub is a free option that gets you the same savings.
Similar to the Wyndham searches, I looked for hotels in popular summer destinations. The first hotel I picked was the Comfort Suites Near Universal Orlando Resort.
As you can see, this was one instance where the BenefitHub rate wasn’t the cheapest possible rate. However, if you were looking for a rate with free cancellation, the BenefitHub rate offered savings of $10 per night. It’s only if you were willing to make a non-refundable booking that you’d save money.
My next search was Anaheim and I picked the Comfort Inn Anaheim Resort.
This time the BenefitHub rate offered savings of $11 per night. However, note that this property only seemed to offer non-refundable rates, so keep an eye out for that if you want flexibility when booking as this example shows that BenefitHub rates can’t always be canceled for free.
Similar to Wyndham, it seems like the BenefitHub rate matches the AAA rate. Again though, at least BenefitHub is a free membership, so non-AAA members can gain access to the same low hotel rates.
BenefitHub rates do seem to be cheaper than AARP rates though, or at least for the searches that I did.
BenefitHub is a company that offers savings on a range of products and services, including when booking stays at Choice and Wyndham properties. Savings can differ by property, but they were always lower than the best available rate and matched AAA rates without needing to pay for a AAA membership.
