I didn't realize there were any substantial coupons for AirBnB. How much of a discount are you getting and where do you find them?

Doing a google search I only found relatively small coupons or coupons for first time users. For our rentals, we've found the discount for longer stays to be huge so that it wouldn't be worth breaking them up (US stays only).

For this AirBnB newbie, how many days does it take to be a "long stay"?

I had a $150 credit from a previous Airbnb stay that turned out pretty horrible (cat feces, an inch of cat hair lining the only couch, dirt, grime, gross nasty stuff; full refund plus $150 credit for my troubles from airbnb). I also had a credit from another place that cancelled on me. Then I had some credit from referring others to use Airbnb (I make $20, you save $20 kind of deal).

In any event, I had enough to pay basically nothing for 2 weeks in a nice aparment in Mexico City ($600-700 IIRC), but I had to split it into 3 bookings to use all 3 promos. It's not exactly a repeatable process (nor would you want to repeat it!).

I sent all the paperwork they requested.

We paid about $3500 for 42 days in Dunedin FL and on day 4
I ruptured my achilles tendon. Went to ER and they said to see Ortho. Dr. ASAP
Made an appoint with one at Emory in Atlanta since all our
doctors are here.
The Airbnd host has already booked 9 of the remaining days.
I checked with my Credit Card and trip cancellation does not cover rentals

Could of bought trip insurance but in the long run we would of came out
behind and one of the reasons we use Airbnd is that they do have an
Extenuating circumstances clause.


Just curious (and hopeful)

Here is Airbnd def.
What’s covered:
• Death in the family
• Serious illness or serious illness in the family
• Natural disaster in the destination country
• Political unrest in the destination country
• Civil obligations
What's not covered:
• Flight cancellations due to something other than a natural disaster
• Lost baggage
• Loss of employment
• Death of someone other han an immediate family member
FYI
I never heard back so I emailed them today. Within 10 minutes someone
from AIRBNB called and said sorry not sure what happened but I would get a
partial refund.
The host already rented a lot of the day that we orig. booked.
Not sure how important that was.
