  1. Mr21 ... I am bidding these same dates, same location ... were there any lower bids etc before you scored this? Thanks for the info!!!
  2. I just saw another unusually amazing deal ..... was looking up cars for a friend ... Hotwire had a midsize listed for only $3.95 a day :) .... SFO for Saturday, Jan 9th for one day rental ... later the price went up to $4.95 and then $5.95. Still an amazing deal.
  3. quigleymax2 ... this is amazing ... $19 may be the lowest win for a 3 star ever without any bonus money added etc. Do you remember what star level you bid for? (I wonder if Priceline has lowered the minimum required bid prices for each star level?) Thanks
  4. I played around with dates ... the mistake will only work if you book 4 nights. 4 night searches gives you $42 a night. 5 night searches gives you $67 a night. For any other shorter search ... the prices jumps to $130 a night.
  5. got this for a friend through the PRICELINE link on the board... previous failed bid was $95. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $96.00 Subtotal: $1,536.00 Taxes & Fees: $271.84 Total Charges*: $1,807.84
  6. This is definitely the best deal going if you're going to the Superbowl ... rates for nice hotels are $300+++ I had almost booked this when the price was $155 a night. A week later ... the price had dropped to $116. I also tried bidding on Priceline first with no luck at all. Got this for a friend going for the big game. Amenities: Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center High-speed Internet Access Golf Nearby Spa Services Hotel rate per night - Hotwire hot Rate: $116.00 Nights: 5 Rooms: 1 Subtotal: $580.00 Tax recovery charges and fees: $70.91 Total price: $650.91 Total charges to your credit card $650.91
  7. Amazing hotel built on it's own Island ... Loews Coronado. The lowest this hotel goes for on Priceline is $99 a night and is typically $159 or more on all other websites... On 1800hotels.com they have prices as low as $42 a night for Thanksgiving week Nov 23-28. I booked a friend of mine Oct 9-14 for $67 a night and had already tried bidding higher on priceline ... by comparison ... I had only received a counter-offer at $110. Best rates elsewhere for those dates was $179. Hope this helps someone and they honor the reservations. PS ... I have also found this website to consistently beat Priceline and Hotwire for the 5* Trump in Vegas. They will have it for $75 and I have not been able to beat it by bidding. PPS .... I checked it for another friend's trip .... Key West ... Feb 8th ... they have the Doubletree for $143 and I had already tried bidding higher on Priceline with no luck.
  8. Very positive experience.... I did their timeshare deal a few thanksgivings ago .... just like the original poster, it was a tough weekend to book and yet they were able to give us 3 free nights @ Hooters. Alan Thicke was their spokeperson ..... we had no problem getting our $99 deposit refunded and they stuck to their word on all the freebies .... $50 gas card, slot credits, buffet and show etc. Only pitfall ... the "90 minute presentation" actually took more than 3 hours if you include getting shuttled from your hotel, walking tour, presentation and after you finally say no they hit you with "this is just a quick survey" where they slash their prices and start the sale pitch all over again. But 3 hours for 3 free nights on a long weekend in Vegas = :)
  9. What an incredible score ... it is now $349 a night!!! :) Someone left a zero off the price ... too bad they corrected this so quick!!!
  10. Thru the barn for a friend of a friend ... started at $60 and got an immediate counter-offer .... last failed bid was $68. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$69.00 Subtotal: US$207.00 Taxes & Service Fees: US$39.23 Total Charges: US$246.23
  11. thru the barn for a friend ... last failed bid was $74 ... interesting to see the minimum prices fluctuate with the Canadian dollar (I wish the Canadian dollar was this strong when I moved to the U.S. five years ago). Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$75.00 Subtotal: US$150.00 Taxes & Service Fees: US$30.26 Total Charges: US$180.26
  12. thru the barn for a friend .... last failed bid was $85. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: US$87.00 Subtotal: US$609.00 Taxes & Service Fees: US$120.01 Total Charges: US$729.01
  13. Always through savingsbarn :) ... got another room for a friend.... one less night on this booking. Started with $100 ... got the same counter of $141 as my prior win. Bid $126 and finally won at $127. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $127.00 Subtotal: $381.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $50.34 Total Charges*: $431.34
  14. Got this for a friend going to the real estate convention... Last failed bid was $125 ... PL countered with $141 after every single bid I made. Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $128.00 Subtotal: $512.00 Taxes & Service Fees: $65.26 Total Charges*: $577.26
  15. The last time they had this same promo ... restaurant managers ignored the reservation numbers and even accepted them after the expiry dates!!!
