    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

Sorry if this is not in the right section or if it has been discussed elsewhere...

A couple of months ago, I think, Priceline sent an email that they now had a feature where you could look at various cities and see the zone, star level and accepted price of some recent bids. I looked at it quickly and commented to my wife that I was amazed they were offering this information. I haven't been making a lot of PL bids lately and forgot about it, but recently was trying to find the link on their site to this again. I didn't see anything there. I would not be surprised if they removed it. I was surprised they put it up in the first place. Has anybody seen this? Did anybody else see this? Am I just missing the link on their site?

you might be referring to Priceline's "Shop and Compare" product, this allows you to see the name of the hotel and the price per night before you buy.

it's called the "winner's board"

the only way I know to get to it is to sign in to priceline, click on my profile, then click on priceline rewards, then it will appear on the upper right of the page.

It lists recent winning bids from different areas....

Yep, that is it. Thanks. I just didn't look hard enough and haven't used the site in a while.

Has anybody compared what they "admit" people getting to some of the lowest bids that are really accepted? It seems to me they might not want to post some of the really low accepted bids...

what they post is more middle of the road from what I see.

an example:

3* orlando WDW $55. This can usually be had for $45.

2* orlando SW/US $35. Seen this regularly for $25-$30.

priceline needs to make some profit or they'll go out of business :)

It seemed that way to me, too, though I think I saw one for $70 on Fremont in Vegas for a 4* which somebody on here just said they could not get. That could just be the difference between weekend and weekday, probably. I am very curios, though, if those are random results or if they are skewed high intentionally by PL... :)

it seems high to me. I just looked at san antonio 4* for instance. I paid $88 for my 4* room yesterday. They're showing a 4* room being $100 for the Downtown/Riverwalk area of San Antonio. They're saying a 3* room is $90.

yeah, right.

Ok I just discovered this feature but I'm noticing that they don't post wins or something. I've checked tons of popular cities you'd think people would be bidding on (NYC, LA, etc) including a number of others and I've not gotten any bid results. I checked last night and all day today and nothing.

How often do they post these supposed wins?
