Save 20% – 60% On Gift Cards From Sam’s Club For Hotels

Written by Charlie

There is a website called that is powered by Orbitz. The way it works is as follows (from the website):

Global Hotel Cards

1. Search for Hotel Reservations.

Search our database of over 70,000 hotels worldwide by city and date or use the Advanced Search tool for custom searches.

2. Apply the 19- digit Promotion Code (and 4-digit Pin if required) value as payment.

After choosing your hotel reservation, you will be asked to enter your 19 digit Promotion Code. Simply apply the value of your Global Hotel Card for full or partial payment of the hotel reservation. The balance, if necessary may be paid with a major credit card.

3. Reservation confirmation.

Reservations will be confirmed by email directly from Global Hotel and the hotel’s central reservation system, which will have a record of your reservation. At check-in simply present your identification for the pre-paid reservation. A major credit card will be required for charges other than the pre-paid room and tax.

4. Enjoy your stay!

If you have further questions regarding the use of your Card please contact customer service department at 1-877-427-7473 or email us at

Things To Know:

  • Global Hotel Cards can be used and redeemed ONLY FOR HOTEL RESERVATIONS MADE ONLINE through the website, not redeemable at
  • Hotel availability is not guaranteed.
  • If the hotel reservation price is less than the value of the Card (s), the remaining portion will be available for a future reservation. If the reservation price is greater than the value of the card(s), the difference must be paid with a credit card at the time of booking. All reservations require a major credit card to complete the reservation. Must be 18 years of age or older. Up to four (4) cards may be redeemed per reservation.
  • You may cancel your reservation with no penalty IF the cancellation is done online at and is within the rules of the HOTEL’s cancellation policy. The value of your Gift Card and payment on your credit card will be reinstated within 5-7 business days of confirmation that the reservation was cancelled within the rules of the hotel’s policy. 


The Deal

HT: Slickdeals thread


The gift cards from Sam’s Club

So, you buy cards of certain value and then use them through the method listed above. These cards are available at Sam’s Club for $79.99 (for two $50 cards) and in some stores for $39.99 – a savings of at least 20% and up to 60%! These cards can only be used through the website, but many of their hotel prices compare favorably with Orbitz.

The price for the Congress Plaza Hotel at Grant Park (Chicago) with GlobalHotelCard

The price of $39.99 is not available at all Sam’s Clubs (was not available at mine) but you may be able to check to see if it is available at your club by clicking this link for Sam’s Club product page (set your club). At the very least, you can order online for $79.99. Note: You must have a Sam’s Club membership to take advantage of this deal. I realize that this will not benefit everyone but should benefit some!

Be Aware: The photo on Sam’s Club website shows that it is available as one gift card per hotel reservation. If this is the case, make sure you space your reservation out as multiple reservations to take advantage of all the cards you may be able to pick up.
