Earn 3X D$ at Pan Pacific & PARKROYAL hotels (plus mega-stacking opportunity)

Expired

How's this for a stack? 3X + 2X D$, bonus D$15 and a S$100 AMEX credit for stays at Pan Pacific & PARKROYAL hotels in Singapore.

GHA DISCOVERY has launched a new offer for Pan Pacific & PARKROYAL hotels in Singapore, with 3X DISCOVERY Dollars (D$) on stays till 31 December 2023. 

This would already be a solid enough promotion, but what makes it even more lucrative are the stacking opportunities. Play your cards right, and you could also earn:

Now that’s a killer combo!

Earn 3X D$ at Pan Pacific & PARKROYAL Hotels

3X D$ offer

GHA DISCOVERY members can now earn 3X D$ when they book stays at the following properties in Singapore:

  • Pan Pacific Singapore
  • Pan Pacific Orchard
  • PARKROYAL on Beach Road
  • PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay
  • PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering

A few points to note:

  • No registration is required
  • Stays must be booked from 1 September to 30 November 2023
  • Stays must be completed from 1 September to 31 December 2023
  • “Completion” refers to check-out; if your check-out date is after 31 December 2023, you will not qualify
  • No minimum spend or minimum stay length required
  • No cap on the maximum times this offer can be used

Depending on their GHA DISCOVERY tier, members would earn anywhere from a 12-21% rebate.

Earn 2X D$ at all GHA hotels

GHA Double D$ Promo

GHA DISCOVERY is running a separate global offer that awards members 2X D$ for all stays at GHA properties worldwide. 

A few points to note:

  • Registration is required, and can be done via the link above
  • Stays must be booked from 1 August to 30 September 2023
  • Stays must be completed from 1 August to 30 September 2023
  • “Completion” refers to check-out; if your check-out date is after 30 September 2023, you will not qualify
  • No minimum spend or minimum stay length required
  • No cap on the maximum times this offer can be used

I’ve confirmed with the GHA DISCOVERY PR team that this offer can be stacked with the 3X D$ promotion, so stays at the aforementioned Pan Pacific and PARKROYAL hotels would receive 4X D$ in total!

Hold up: if the individual offers are 2X and 3X, shouldn’t the total be 5X?

Nope. You need to remember that the 2X and 3X figures already include the base 1X, which is not duplicated. Therefore the bonus component here is 1X (global promo) and 2X (Pan Pacific/PARKROYAL promo) respectively, for a total of 4X.

⚠️ Note

There was some concern that this term in the 3X D$ T&Cs would preclude the offers from stacking:

“Should a stay by a Pan Pacific DISCOVERY member align with two concurrent promotions, the system will opt for the promotion that provides the highest benefit.​”

I have highlighted this to the GHA PR team, and they say this term will be removed.

Book via DISCOVERY app to earn an extra D$15

Promo Details

GHA DISCOVERY is running a separate offer that awards a bonus D$15 for all bookings made through the GHA DISCOVERY app (Android | iOS).

A few points to note:

  • Registration not required
  • Stays must be booked between 4 July to 31 December 2023
  • Check-out date must be from 4 July to 31 December 2023
  • No minimum spend or minimum stay length required
  • No cap on the maximum times this offer can be used

This is further stackable with the 2X/3X offers above. 

AMEX Offer for Pan Pacific Hotels Group

American Express cardholders can register for an AMEX Offer that gives a S$100 statement credit with a minimum spend of S$400 (in one or more transactions) at participating Pan Pacific Hotels.

ChainOffer
SpendCredit
Pan Pacific Hotels
(1x use)
T&Cs
S$400S$100

The offer is valid for payments made by 30 September 2023 at:

  • Pan Pacific Singapore
  • PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay
  • PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering
  • PARKROYAL on Beach Road
  • PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road
  • Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Beach Road

The properties in bold are also participating in the 3X D$ offer (all GHA properties worldwide are participating in the 2X D$ offer and app booking offer).

To utilise the AMEX Offer, your payment must be done in-person at the front desk. 

Now, in my experience (and the experience of others), GHA does not charge credit cards before arrival, even for non-refundable rates. Therefore, you could book a non-refundable stay and pay at the front desk during check-in, thereby meeting the criteria for the AMEX Offer.

However, I cannot promise that this will always be the case. If in doubt, email or call the hotel to clarify.

How do D$ work?

D$1= US$1 at GHA properties worldwide. 

D$ can be earned or redeemed on the following expenses:

✔️ Eligible Spend to Earn/Redeem D$

Room and add-ons:

  • Room charge/qualified room rate
  • Room upsell
  • Early check-in
  • Late check-out
  • Package
  • Crib/baby cot
  • Extra bed
  • Day use
  • Apartments/ Residences up to 30 days
  • Internet
  • Telecom
  • In-room media

Food and Beverage at eligible outlets:

  • Restaurants
  • Bars, pool bars
  • Lobby cafes
  • Coffee bars
  • Room service
  • Minibar

Other non-room spend at eligible outlets:

  • Spa
  • Golf & Sports
  • Experiences

Only stays booked through the GHA website or official hotel websites/channels will be eligible to earn D$. 

A minimum of D$10 must be spent in a single transaction. It’s currently only possible to use D$ 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 says they are working to add such functionality, but there is no timeline yet as to when it’ll be available.

It is possible to use D$ on prepaid stays however, insofar as the hotel doesn’t actually charge your card at the time of booking (you’d be surprised, many “prepaid stays” aren’t actually charged until check-in). My advice would be to contact the hotel beforehand, let them know you want to book a prepaid rate with D$, and ask them how to proceed.

What cards should you use for hotel bookings?

Here’s the cards you can use for GHA DISCOVERY hotel bookings. Do note that certain cards will only offer their bonus rates if the booking is in foreign currency (i.e. not the Pan Pacific/PARKROYAL hotels in Singapore!).

*Must declare travel as quarterly 10X category
^Note what I said earlier in the article about how GHA bookings typically don’t seem to be charged online

Since the Citi Rewards Card doesn’t award 4 mpd for hotel transactions, pairing it with the Amaze isn’t an option. You can, however, pair the UOB Lady’s Card (with travel selected as your 10X category) with Amaze to earn 6 mpd with minimal FCY fees. 

Conclusion

Pan Pacific Singapore

Let’s recap the stack. A GHA DISCOVERY member who stays by 30 September 2023 would have the opportunity to enjoy the following:

  • Regular D$ rebates of 4-7%
  • Extra D$ rebates of 4-7% (2X global promo)
  • Extra D$ rebates of 8-14% (3X Pan Pacific/PARKROYAL promo)
  • Bonus D$15 for app booking
  • S$100 statement credit (AMEX)

That’s a total rebate of 28% for Titanium members, plus D$15 and a S$100 statement credit!

I don’t know about you, but this gets me very excited. It’s just a shame the newly-opened Pan Pacific Orchard doesn’t qualify for the AMEX statement credit, so if I want to review that I’m “only” going to be able to stack three promos.

How will I survive!
