    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

As of last week, April 5, 2019, I have had a very hard time bidding on Priceline. Whenever I try to sign into to bid, I get an error page. I have tried logging on to multiple platforms, Windows, Apple, etc and every browser imaginable - Firefox, IE, Safari, Chrome, you name it, and NOTHING works. I have tweeted Priceline, tried calling them and they keep saying there is no problem. I then went on Twitter and asked followers to try to bid and they have the EXACT SAME ERROR dialogue box. I need to use the site on my desktop.

 

As of right now, you have to fill out the information, in full, for every bid and you have to wait because it won't tell you if you got the bid or not on the screen. You have to wait to see if you got it through email.  This is a major hassle and inconvenience. 

 

Has anyone else had an issue with bidding and signing into to bid while using the desktop site? Please let me know.

 

Thanks

The sign-in link on the Priceline bidding page is currently broken, just as you and the others you have asked to try to log-in have experienced.

 

Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

Jgarciaquinoes,

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

Please add to your Priceline Miami Hotel thread the dates of your stay, desired star rating, expected budget (per nite before fees/taxes), and what you're looking for in a hotel (pre/post-cruise stay, beach, nice pool, exploring downtown, etc) and we will try to help you find something that best meets your needs.

This has also been an issue for me.  Priceline insists that everything is OK as well, when it isn't (for some users, anyway).

Having the same problem since yesterday.  Called Priceline, CSR seemed clueless about this issue.  Express side is OK.

I do see the 'error page' when clicking the sign-in link, but try this...

On the bidding page if you click REGISTER (instead of sign-in) the form that loads has inputs for you to log-in (and a separate additional button to open a new account)... does this sign-in page allow you to complete the sign-in process?

 

For Priceline Bidding please use the form we have set-up at BiddingForHotelRooms.com

My heavens, does Priceline hire the most incompetent developing world support staff that they can find?  I've had the most frustrating day trying to get them:

  1. To understand that there's a problem.
  2. That what's broken needs to be fixed.
  3. That my business will go elsewhere if I can't login and use the Name Your Own Price interface.

All they reply with are unresponsive canned responses that suggest that a bot is assisting them and when the bot isn't doing the job of replying, then a human is and quite often s/he is uniquely incapable of comprehending, well, just about anything.  Terrible customer service.   Simply awful.

And unless I've failed to follow a step or two, thereuare, there seems to be no difference doing what you suggest.  It's all still a black hole of digital dysfunction!

I gave up and booked a couple of stays using HOTWIRE.  If Priceline can't be bothered to fix an obvious problem, I'll take my business elsewhere.

This is how I did the bidding while the problem is still on going.  Bid as usual without sign-in, go to your mytrip page on separate tab/window and check if the bid was successful.  If not , repeat as usual and recheck mytrip information.  Make sure to refresh the page to make sure that all bids are noted.  If the bid was accepted, it will show on the mytrip.  Hope this helps

UPDATE:

This issue appears to be resolved (please let me know if this is not the case, as i did successfully log-in but did not go as far as placing a bid).

 

Used our BiddingForHotelRooms.com, entered a location, and then successfully logged-in using the link on the top right corner of the page (which previously gave an error page).
