Up to 50,000 Points + First-Year Free!

Get up to $225 to stay in Vancouver!

To the point Here are the details of the offer made by the Vancouver Hotel Destination Association (VHDA) which issues gift cards for hotel nights.

A few times a year, the Vancouver Hotel Destination Association (VHDA) – through the StayVancouverHotels initiative – conducts a promotion to boost tourism in the city. The last one was last October. It includes 40 hotels and offers prepaid gift cards for stays at these properties.


With this promotion, you can get prepaid gift cards worth :

  • 50, $75, $100 or $125 for the first night
  • $50 for the second and third night

So, if you stay 3 nights at one of the participating hotels, you could get up to $225 in prepaid gift cards !

Promotion Vancouver

To take advantage of this promotion, you must book your hotel on the StayVancouverHotels website. Here are the details:

  • Book through StayVancouverHotels.com by selecting the promo code”Mastercard“.
  • Booking subsequent nights as separate reservations will be treated the same as a single reservation for multiple nights.
  • The first night entitles you to the full amount of the reward (between $50 and $125)
  • A $50 per night gift card is added for a maximum of 2 additional consecutive nights.
  • Three bookings maximum per person.
  • The stay must be completed between now and April 30, 2022
  • Reservations can be cancelled up to 48 hours before the check-in date.
  • The gift cards (s) will be given at check-in.
  • Gift cards are from MasterCard
  • Reservations can be made with Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
  • This is a limited offer and can be terminated at any time.

Here’s an example below with the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, which I’ve already visited. A stay for a long weekend for lovers between February 12 and February 15 costs $170 per night. Therefore, it provides a gift card of :

  • $100 for the first night
  • $50 for the second night
  • $50for the third night

For a total of $200 in prepaid gift cards, for a 3-night stay of approximately $599, taxes included.

Of course, you can always change hotels each night (subject to the terms and conditions of the offer), so you get the maximum for the first night. However, this means moving your luggage every day.

These prepaid gift cards can be used to directly deduct your hotel bill, restaurant bill or any other expense during your stay.

Here are the current offers for American Express credit cards:


As we often say, please check the regular price of a room vs the promotional price.

By booking through StayVancouverHotels, you will be able to take advantage of the benefits offered by your Elite status and have the points and nights of your stay credited to you.

I did that on my last trip to Vancouver with a similar offer. You need to contact the hotel after your booking and provide your loyalty number!

Then, you can pay for your stay with your Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card to earn 5 points per dollar (for Marriott hotel stays). Or directly use your gift card at checkout!

In addition, if you have theAmerican Express “Discover CB / Discover BC”promotional offer, you will receive a $100 credit on any cumulative hotel spend of $800, in that province. Another good move.

And don’t forget the fact that Marriott has their double elite nights and 1,000 bonus points per night promotion.
