About a week ago I had the privilege of meeting the creative and marketing team who developed a new hotel booking app, StayAtHand. Bloggers, small business owners and mompreneurs in the DC metro area tend to have each others’ backs and support each other. Here is one way I can do that (and I am not an affiliate, nor do I earn any money from the use of the promo code below). I was able to see the app before its launch and I must say it looks very cool! I don’t know of another hotel booking app or site that is this easy to use and understand.
Now this post is a little different than my usual, since I’m talking specifically about a product, but there is a charitable donation opportunity involved and that is something that I love – especially at this time of year. StayAtHand has given a blogger challenge: for every 100 readers using my promo code to book and complete a hotel stay using the new app (booked by the end of this month), StayAtHand will donate $500 to our local shelter serving abused, homeless or at-risk women and families. The name of this organization is Doorways, and the services that Doorways provides to local women and families are simply incredible.
So, the instructions are below; the app is free; and don’t we all want to have a little get-away at this time of year?! Even better, the first 25 of my readers to book using the promo code below will qualify for 10% back on their stay. The booking must be done by the end of 2013 and the stay may occur anytime in the future.
Here’s our special promo code: LTBD10
To use it, follow these simple steps:
1. Download the app. The easiest way to do that is to simply click here on your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Or you can search for StayAtHand in the App Store.
2. Create an account and enter your code LTBD10 in the referral code field, just above where you enter your name.
3. Book a stay!
4. Fist-bump the person next to you. Firework jazzhands optional, but encouraged.
*On completion of your stay, StayAtHand will send an Amazon gift card to the email address in your StayAtHand account. This gift card will be worth 10% your hotel stay, minus taxes and fees. To see the uncomplicated fine print and promotion details, click here.
