Monday, September 30 is the last date this offer may be booked.

$25 rebate on a one night stay is a good offer; especially if you pay a rate under $75.
Analysis of Happy Monday SBN rate
Whether SBN is a higher room rate is not known to me at this time since this offer is only bookable on Mondays.
Howard Johnson Express Seaside is about five miles from where I live. Standard rate for Tuesday, August 27 is $59 and $67.08 after tax. The standard rate also offers 1,000 bonus Wyndham Rewards points. A $59 rate earns 590 Wyndham Rewards points.
$59 rate = 1,590 Wyndham Rewards points (special rate).
Assume $59 is same for SBN rate (I’ll check rate again next Monday and see if the SBN rate is bookable along with the 1,000 bonus points. Monday, August 12 update. SBN rate is 10% off at $53.10 per night and cannot be combined with 1,000 bonus points offer).
$67.08 all-in for Howard Johnson room and receive a $25 gas card rebate.
That is a 37% rebate value on the cost for the room night.
Happy Monday is a good promotion for a cheap one night Howard Johnson stay.
On a different note:
This HoJo promotion made me think of the film 24 Hour Party People and the Manchester, UK band Happy Mondays who are hanging out on a hotel in this video. Step On is a weak video. I liked the Hotel sign setting.
