How did I get 1 night stay in Hilton fallsview and commute for $5

This $5 vacation package includes:

  1. Round trip commute from Toronto to Casino Fallsview
  2. 1 night stay in Hilton Niagara Fall suite
  3. Continental buffet breakfast

I basically combined the TD gold travel welcome bonus deal, Safeway casino deal, and the Hilton Honor Program.

  1. Apply a TD gold travel credit card to get the $112 travel dollar and follow the hint in my Free Travel from TD Canada Trust post to have the annual fee waived.
  2. Call TD Travel at 1-800-983-1043 to book a room at Hilton Niagara Falls Fallsveiw. I selected the ROOM SELECTED AT CHECK-IN for $99 only which is covered by the TD Gold Travel visa welcome bonus.
  3. Book a bus seat at Safeway at First Markham Place. They charged me $25 at the sales office. There was a $20 rebate cheque on the bus, which could be cashed at the casino.
  4. Go to the Safeway booth (at the entrance of the casino complex) and tell the representative that you are going to leave tomorrow. The returning ticket is valid for 24 hours. I told them that I am a big gambler.
  5. Get free upgrade and breakfast at the hotel. I presented my Hilton Gold VIP card to get free upgrade to a suite. This works best for off-season. Your mileage may vary here. I will have a post about the Hilton Honor Program.
