Even though it feels like summer is coming to a close, it isn’t over just yet — and what better way to stretch out those final days of fun in the sun than a luxury trip during Labor Day Weekend?
Starting Aug. 12, Expedia is having a “Let’s Go” sale, where you can get up to 30% off select luxury hotel stays. You’ll also have the opportunity to save on a variety of flights and vacation packages with a special coupon code. To get it, open the app at 9am PST and scroll down to the Today’s Top Deals section. Some of these noteworthy deals include:
- Select hotels offering 30% off on stays occurring between Aug. 12 and Oct. 31, 2019, plus save an additional 10% with coupon
- $100 off $200 airfare (mobile app coupon)
- $50 off $200 airfare (mobile app and web coupon)
- 50% off hotel (mobile app coupon)
- $750 off a $1,000 package (mobile app coupon)
Word to the wise: Become a member ahead of time and download the mobile app. Start favoriting hotels you love so that you’re ready to go when the time comes. Those high-value hotels are going to go quickly! Also, the hotel codes won’t work on big name brands such as Marriott and Hilton, so boutique hotels will be your best bet.
If you have a furry friend you want to take along with you, you’re in luck. The booking company also highlighted the US hotels with the best dog-friendly amenities to honor their Dog Days of Summer mascots, so grab your pup and check out these pet-approved pads:
Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, California
Rooms start at $396 per night.
Soho Grand Hotel in New York City, New York
Rooms start at $269 per night.
Archer Hotel in Austin, Texas

Of course, before you book any hotels during the sale, be sure that you’re using a card that will earn you bonus points on hotel stays. Our top picks are the Chase Sapphire Reserve (for 3x on travel) and the Citi Premier℠ Card (also 3x). You can learn more about the best cards for travel purchases here.
