PRICELINE BIDDING TIPS FOR CANADIANS and NON-US

By SuntanD,

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I would like to try this method myself, with my Norwegian VISA, but there is one thing that concerns me....

Could there be any problems upon check-in at the hotel, given the fact that your ZIP code and City is not correct?

Also I'm fairly certain that they will hear that I am a non-us citizen... :)

Best Regards

I have heard of nobody ever having a problem.

Besides, the person checking need not be the one who paid for the reservation. I could make a reservation (using my own US credit card) for a friend of mine who is non-US, and there would be no problem... as long as the name on the reservation was in the name of the person checking in.

Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.....Priceline accepted a bid, but would not accept my VISA card....too bad :)

Some people have luck with a non-US VISA, but not others.

If you have a Mastercard or AMEX, you can try those. Those almost always work.

You could also try Priceline.com.hk or Priceline.com.sg or Priceline.co.uk .

My Canadian VISA worked on Priceline UK but not Priceline US.

Will try the mentioned sites.

Also been thinking of getting an AMEX for a while, so I might just do that now.

Thanks for all your help!

Hoping someone can help. Have tried this card a number of times and cannot get it to work. My requests are failing due to card being declined.

Has anyone had success with this card and if so how.

Currently I have my profile updated to show my full address in the 2 address lines, my actual city is in the city line, with CA and 99999.

Don't know what else to do, about to give up on this.

I used CIBC Aerogold VISA card for priceline; it didn't work. I guess many others have faced the same problem. Next, I used the Citibank Mastercard and it worked. Just wanted to share this info.

I posted my full Canadian address in line 1 and line 2. For the city, state, and zip I used some random places (Maine worked for me).

CIBC is a "hostile" bank for almost any online transaction. (poker etc.) According to priceline, they don't have the necessary security enhncements.

They use the same check so i would think it would work just the same... if it won't you'll simply receive a message that the system is open to users with a US mailing address.

My concern is what might happen in respect to airport security checks if the address is not correct. I have no idea if this address information is checked or not. If you use a legitimate address to which you have some connection, and an America PRICELINE EXPRESS card, I think it should be fine, though.

My TD VISA worked very well today. I took the advice and used WA for the state and 99999 for the postal code and placed my complete address in the 2 lines provided. No problems so far!!! bid was accepted and charged to my credit card already.

I've used my CIBC Aerogold card a few times - no problems. I use my work company address in Boston and it has worked.

Am about to plan a SanFran trip soon - will be using it (hopefully!) again.

This is my first post here. I just made my first purchase on hotwire for a rental car. I have Canadian Tire Mastercard which would not work, kept directing me to verify my card and then refused it. I ended up paying with the card through Pay Pal. Got a car from Avis and saved $76 US based on their site price.
