Super 8 Motel Super $8.88 Promotion

 

800 rooms for 8 nights at Super 8 motels for $8.88/night (beginning 8pm Eastern USA time zone each night)

Wyndham Rewards member Super 8 Motel has a Super 888 Promotion special offer rate going on for another 7 nights.  The deal is each night, beginning at 8:00pm EDT,  800 rooms at Super 8 motels in the USA and Canada will be sold for a room rate of $8.88/night.

Terms:

·         Promotion runs each night at 8pm EDT for 8 nights from 8/8 through 8/15

·         First 800 guests to make a reservation can get an $8.88 per night rate.

·         Stay must occur within period from August 8-December 30, 2008.

·         Limit of one room and one night per person.

·         Rate valid at all participating Super 8 motels in USA and Canada.

·         Being logged into your Wyndham Rewards account will pre-populate personal information and expedite reservation confirmation, thus increasing your chances for the $8.88 / night room rate.

Last night, August 8th, was the first night of the special $8.88 offer.  This thread on FlyerTalk reports of being stuck with an interminable yellow screen with “Is 8 your luck number?  Find out in just a moment…”, and by 8:10 pm the message “We’re sorry, but all 800 rooms for $8.88 allocated for tonight’s sale have been reserved.”  Others actually worked through the screens to make reservations and enter credit card information.  And after 20 to 30 minutes on the website, and waiting for confirmation, received a message that rooms were sold out.

Two FlyerTalkers reported getting the $8.88 room rate and the secret is “luck”.  It appears you need to be logged in to your Wyndham Rewards account, have a motel lined up and ready and be lucky in the first few seconds. 

The promotion begs the question – “If FlyerTalkers can’t get these deals, then how many people are actually trying to book the 800 rooms at 8:00pm EDT?”  Don’t fret.  It is just one night at a Super 8 on the line.

Contestants – warm your mouse fingers.  Ready?
