I remember seeing another post here awhile ago about another deal that was similar but was better. $40 CAD refund as long as you spend $80 CAD so that's basically 1/2 off. I bookmarked the link and it was: https://www.booking.com/s/tang0w62

There was a blog post for it too but not sure if that's allowed here.
It was $40 USD (not CAD) after speding $80 USD. I got more than $50 CAD back on my credit card after staying at the hotel.
Save a lot but end up spending more :confused:

Be careful with this site.

During the summer I booked a bunch of hotel rooms for my trip to Italy. Each email I received claimed I would receive a $40 refund after I stayed at the property. I booked over $3000 of hotel rooms and only received the refund for two $40 USD and $40 CAD. I called and spoke to a "manager" at booking.com who claimed that i was supposed to be refunded $500.00 USD and that she would look into it. After repeated calls, I get an email from the "marketing" team stating that I was only ever eligible for $40 USD and $40 CAD, despite the fact that each reservation email I received said that I would receive a $40 USD.

Total scam of a site. Priceline should be ashamed of this pathetic subsidiary.
I remember they had restrictions on # of bonus per account (because I had to use both my and my husband's account to book hotels). How many accounts did you used?

Yeah this thing has been poorly run but mainly because it's not really clear what the restrictions are. For sure it's one refund per account from what I've read which is what might've happened.

I think there's a few of these out there. Some are for USD and those referrals may have maxed out already. This CAD one still works.

Thanks OP.

I had already used the $40USD off $80 and the €75 off €225 promo successfully. If the 3-code limit is true this will probably be my last one for the year.

Thanks, this beats the Orbitz $30 off deal where you have to pay extra for paying in advance before you can use a promo code.

According to the Green promotional banner at the bottom of the booking.com page, "Minimum booking cost US$80" only (not $200 according to OP).
The banner says minimum $200usd for me.

the thing with the 40 cad/usd bonus is given only once per your account. If you want to take the benefit from it multiple times, open several accounts with different credit/debit cards registered for the refund.
There is also a kind of a good deal which I used several times this year is to to get 25 CAD for a friend referral. The friend gets 25 CAD too. Just open a second account, register on a new email, add your other credit/debit card and get the referral link. Log out, log in on the other one, paste the ref link to see the green bar at the bottom of the page. You will get 25+25 CAD when your stay is confirmed. As far as I understand the rules, you can give the ref link 10 times and get max 250 CAD but your "friend" using your link can use it only once.
