The Rewards

The gift card reward options are dependent on how many nights you book for each stay at any of the participating hotels. Here is a breakdown of those options:

One Night Stay Rewards – $50 gift card

If you are only needing to stay one night in Edmonton, You can pick from any one of the following three options to receive as your reward:

  • One Night Reward 1: $50 Gas Card
  • One Night Reward 2: $50 Prepaid Mastercard
  • One Night Reward 3: $50 Ultimate Dining Card

  • Three Night Reward 1: $225 Prepaid Mastercard
  • Three Night Reward 3: $75 Ultimate Dining Card + $75 Prepaid Mastercard + $75 Gas Card

How and when do you get the rewards?

To earn any of these rewards the hotel stays do have to be booked via the Edmonton’s Best Hotels website. The rewards will then be emailed to guest within 24 hours of checking in to the hotel. The hotel itself does not issue the gift cards.

Examples of the value to be had

Here is a three night stay at the Days Inn by Wyndham Edmonton Downtown that works out great as they even provide discounted AAA/CAA rates via Edmonton’s Best Hotels:

In this example we chose the $225 prepaid Mastercard so technically speaking you only end up $95.91 out of pocket for a three night stay.

Here’s three nights at the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Edmonton West:


Here you pay the same Hilton flexible rate that you get would if you booked direct with Hilton without being a Hilton Honors member. If you are a Hilton Honors member and book direct the stay would be $597.28 including all fees however you wouldn’t be receiving the $225 in gift cards or rewards. I’d say it’s a good deal to pay $40 extra to receive the $225 in gift cards!

There have been some updates to the terms of the offer since the last time we posted about this offer to make sure the offer isn’t gamed. Those key terms are as follows:

  • Edmonton Best Hotels honours up to 3 consecutive days only.  If you check in for three days and then check out and check in the very next day, they consider this a consecutive booking even if it may be at a different hotel.
  • You cannot make more than one booking under the same name for the same dates. For example, if a guest books a two night stay on November 1 and 2 at a hotel and then makes another two night stay booking for the same dates at the same hotel or another hotel, EBH considers this a double booking and will honour rewards for only one of those bookings. They also note double bookings and contact the guest when this occurs.

Unlike booking with online travel agencies, In most cases the stays booked with EBH do count towards your points earning and elite status with the respective hotel loyalty programs.
