Well this was one of the hardest times ive had securing something on PRICELINE, i do not know what is happening that weekend in vegas, but it appears to be that all the hotels prices are way up that weekend(looking on Expedia and other sites).

So i decided to try my luck on priceline, rather than pay 180 a night for something like a 4 star that way.

I started out two nights back

Strip South 56.00 4 star rejected

Strip South+Airport 60.00 4 star rejected

then i decided i would go to bed it was getting late

the next day i tried my luck again and more realistic as well .

70 strip south 4 star rejected countered 113

77 strip south +nellis 4 star rejected countered 113

82 strip north + strip south 4 star rejected

85 strip north 4 star rejected

87 strip south + airport 4 star rejected

91 strip north + nellis 4 star rejected

92 strip south + summerlin 4 star rejected

100 strip north + strip south 4 star rejected countered a whopping 157!!!

100 strip north 5 star rejected, countered a whopping 177!

115 strip north + nellis 5 star rejected, countered 177

125 strip north + summerlin 5 star rejected, countered 177

130 strip north + airport 5 star rejected countered 177

135 strip north + strip south 5 star rejected countered 177

140 strip north + strip south + nellis 5 star rejected

145 strip north + strip south +airport 5 star rejected

150 strip north + henderson 5 star rejected

155 strip north + fremont 5 star rejected

wow that made for an intense hour or more of bidding, so i realized i was done for the night,.

then i really scratched my head, do i take a 4 star in the south , taking the chance i got stuck with westin or excalibur

or do i just go on to the sites and i could get luxor or treasure island both for about 170.00 or so

or did i take my chance and get a nice 5 star for 150 or so?

so the next day i thought id try again, this time i was going to cut to the chase, i had already wasted too much time on this the night before

it also would not let me rebid nothing it kept telling me it was a duplicate request and i had to wait 24 hours, funny thing i looked in my inbox, at all the emails priceline sends you when you get rejected

and it had been over 24 hours

so i almost gave up and about 10:30 it let me try again

125 strip north 5 star rejected countered 177

135 strip north + airport rejected countered 177

145 strip north + strip south + airport 5 star rejected

150 strip north + summerlin 5 star rejected

152 strip north + convention center 5 star rejected (this one took a LONG TIME to answer, i was thinking i had it)

156 strip north + henderson 5 star rejected

160 strip north + fremont 5 star ACCEPTED by the venetian

phew , that was fun,

i was already to pack it in and try again the next day, but im glad i dont have to anymore

it looks as if they were not budging from the 177 counter offer, which i think is high on the 5 stars

its still about 70 a night less than what they are charging on their website though

By the way, i did use your PRICELINE link "thereuare"
