  1. Started bidding at 95 and used rebids up to 120 for 4* in Copley Square. Didn't accept. Waited over long holiday weekend (because traveling) and tried again starting at 95 in Copley Square. Used rebids and got offered to add $22 at one point, but put in rebid (with zones without 4*) at 105 and had it accepted for Westin. Very happy my 120 didn't get accepted now. Thanks!
  2. This is the most bizarre priceline transaction I've ever had. Here goes: Wanted Jan 13-15 2 1/2 star: got no at $36.00. Decided to try resort for one of those days. So I put in resort and used free rebids for 51, 55, 58,60,63, 65, 68, 70, and 76. Got no for all. Went back to 2 1/2 star (i don't feel the hilton is that special for over 76). I put in 13-14 hoping for an extension and at 40.00 I got a no. For 14-15 with 2 1/2 star, I got a no at 42. Went to 3 star (i don't like the sheraton safari and was trying to avoid it) and did just 13-14 and bid 45, got a no. Added sand lake rebid and got the sheraton safari at 50. :) Well, I figured that the point of this trip was more money savings than the hotel, so I would live with it but wouldn't extend my stay (offered). So I looked up rebids on 2 1/2 star and found that they now have a hotel at this level in maitland by the way. So I rebid adding kissimmee and 45.00 and, guess what!, i got upgraded to the sheraton safari with the 45. accepted. Good grief. Well at 2 nights under 100.00, I guess I will just enjoy the upside of this hotel (near cheap restaurants) and spend time in parks. Plus, I didn't want 2 nights at the resort price of 70, so that is okay. I guess I had heard you could get upgraded, but I had forgotten. Something must be going on that weekend, because the 14th was blocked off as check-out only on a lot of hotel websites that I check for specials. It did look like the Omni Championsgate popped up on hotwire for $148.00.
