Happy Monday From HoJo: Free $25 Gas Cards With Midweek Stays

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2013) - Howard Johnson hotels throughout the U.S. and Canada are helping travelers have a happier start to their week by offering a free $25 gas gift card with any midweek stay booked on a Monday.

The latest in a series of Happy Monday themed promotions from the iconic hotel chain, the offer runs through September 30 and is available exclusively for guests who book at www.hojo.com/happymonday or call 1-800-221-5801 and request the special rate code SBN.

"Monday is no stranger to getting a bad rap but we're doing our best to change that," said Kevin McCabe, senior director of marketing for Howard Johnson. "Whether it's a big discount, movie tickets or now, free gas, our Happy Monday promotions give travelers an extra incentive to go out and book that next family vacation, business trip or other excursion they've been meaning to take. Plus, with over 350 Howard Johnson hotels throughout the U.S. and Canada, they won't have to look hard to find a great place stay." 

Through special discounts and unique, one-of-a-kind offers, Howard Johnson created Happy Monday as a means for getting travelers excited about travel and excited about Monday: historically one of the week's most uncelebrated days.

In addition to being booked on a Monday, reservations made using the offer must include a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night stay. Reservations require pre-payment, and are non-cancellable, non-modifiable and non-refundable. Gas gift cards will be mailed approximately two weeks after a reservation is made. Gift cards are redeemable at participating Shell, Exxon, Texaco, Chevron, Sunoco and Gulf gas stations. Full details are available at www.hojo.com/happymonday
