Ahead of Memorial Day, last-minute hotel-booking service Hotel Tonight is offering $99 rooms in various cities through its mobile app. Dubbed the “HT Roulette Blowout,” this promotion runs now through May 21, 2015. HotelTonight will share the latest $99 deals via Twitter and Instagram, so it’s worth following those accounts if you’re interested in a spur-of-the-moment getaway this month.
Each booking you make through the $99 promotion will enter you to win a trip for two — including flights, a two-night hotel stay and spending cash — on the weekend of June 26. Following with the whole spontaneous theme, Hotel Tonight won’t tell you where you’re going until the day of the trip, but it will give you a heads-up about weather to help you pack. For more info, view the guidelines here. And if you’re new to Hotel Tonight, you can get a $25 credit using the promo code BKELLY99 (Note: this code is TPG’s personal link — if you use it you both get $25 instantly).
