  1. IMO, this deal is not worth it, especially when you compare it to the awesome “2 stays gets you 1 free night” that they recently had. We used them on 300+ $ rooms in West Yellowstone, Montana earlier this week.

    This one gets you a $70 phone, but you have to pay $100 in service fees. I can’t imagine who would go for this. (?)

  2. @Bluecat – I considered adding commentary about how these phones can be purchased for $100 or less. Opted simply to present the deal rather than analyze the value of the phone and 2 months of cellular service.

    I can imagine people who might want a basic smartphone for elderly parent or a child. Whether the $100 plan for two months of service is a worthwhile condition is up to the hotel traveler.

  3. Actually, I respect your analysis and, when I come to your website, I expect it to be something that you think is worthwhile for your readers—otherwise, why talk about it?

    I think your comment above is a good qualifier/caveat/filter “people who might want a basic smartphone for elderly parent or a child” .
