GHA DISCOVERY has launched an excellent new promotion for bookings made on its app, which offers D$50 (US$50) for every stay of at least two nights, capped at four times.
That’s a maximum of D$200 up for grabs, all the better if you can earn it at hotels with low nightly rates.
GHA App-Solutely Rewarding promotion
|GHA App Booking Offer|
From 8-31 August 2022, GHA DISCOVERY members who make bookings of at least two nights via the GHA DISCOVERY app (Android | iOS) will enjoy a flat D$50 per stay, up to four times. No registration is required.
This is valid for stays with check-out date by 31 December 2022. To be clear, you will not earn any bonus D$ if your check-out date is from 1 January 2023 onwards, notwithstanding the fact your check-in fell within the promotional period.
If your booking was made before 8 August 2022, you should cancel and rebook to qualify for the offer (assuming your booking is refundable).
Bookings that include multiple rooms will be counted and considered as a single stay, and rewarded only once. The T&Cs are silent on back-to-back stays at the same property booked separately, but I wouldn’t risk it.
Promotional D$ awarded from this campaign will expire in six months, as opposed to regular D$ which can be valid for up to two years, depending on tier.

Remember: you must book via the GHA DISCOVERY app to qualify for this offer. Bookings made via the website or any other third party will not qualify.

Maximising this promotion
Since the reward is a flat D$50, the cheaper your room rate, the higher the effective rebate.
I did some searching in the region, and concluded that Thailand offers the cheapest stays out there. The Avani properties in Bangkok are hovering around US$45…
…while Phuket and Krabi have hotels at the US$35 mark, almost too good to be true!
Of course, even if you end up booking an expensive hotel it’s still US$50 off a future stay, at no additional cost to you.
How do I use D$?
As a reminder, it’s currently only possible to use D$ during a stay, at the front desk of a hotel. You cannot redeem D$ online, nor can you spend them on F&B or spa treatments when not an in-house guest.
GHA was planning to add such functionality in Q2 2022, but it’s come and gone without any further updates.
If you want to use D$ to pay for a prepaid rate, I suggest emailing the hotel beforehand to clarify how it’ll work. Anecdotally, I’ve booked “prepaid” rates at the Sindhorn Kempinski and other GHA hotels that weren’t charged until check-in, allowing me to use my D$ nonetheless.
GHA DISCOVERY members can earn a bonus D$50 (US$50) per two night stay booked by 31 August 2022 and stayed by 31 December 2022, capped at four times.
This is a great little offer, any way you look at it. If you’re heading overseas to a city with GHA properties, be sure to see if you can work this in.
