  1. Just tried Jersey city, 3.5* and 3* up to $100 rejected, while the 4* up to $120 rejected, their own website price for the two 4 star (westin and Hyatt) are only $140ish w/o tax. As for NYC, with all zones selected 3.5* up to $170 still rejected. Wife tried soho alone and the 4* up to $180 still rejected, while the lowest own website price for the soho 4* (hilton) is only $259. My question is if eventually I have to pay close to own website price (with my bonus cash added on) to get a winning bid, which would be better in terms of service quality and convenience for touring, a SOHO 4* (most l
  2. I actually tried to include all zones in the end after I run out of free re-bidding zones. And the above is my result. Is this a normal price for that time in NYC (which might not be reduced much later on) or it's just not the right timing? And another question is if bidding Jersey city would be a good compromise. I checked PL's list and the 4 stars at Jersey city especially Hyatt at new port seems to be quite convenient for public transportation to Manhattan as well. No reference price for my dates though. Thanks.
  3. Well, I tried bidding last night and it was outrageous. 3.5* up to $170 still all rejected in all areas except long island city and brooklyn, for 4* I went up to $190 and all rejected. I used DT as my main target and used the 4 and 5 free rebidding zones for 3.5* and 4* respectively, starting with $100 and $150 respectively for 3.5* and 4*. Nothing happened. My wife tried MTW area too, same results. Is it still too early for May bidding? I checked Kayak and the rack price for those 4* and 3.5* listed in PL inventory were only $200ish in DT area. Any more quick tips? My bonus cash expir
  4. I would say, including the bonus cash, $150 nite max. Doesn't have to be a 4 star since we would probably spend 80% of our time outside. We did not got to Myrtle beach and Pigeon forge eventually due to change of plans.
  5. We will go to NYC on those dates by bus from DC and would like to stay in Manhattan to save some commute time. Back in Jan this year, we stayed at Omni Berkshire and were indeed spoiled by the convenience of the location (MTE in priceline?). Anyways, I have $160 bonus cash to spend so I have to use PL, and the only criteria I'm having (importance by the descent order) 1. Affordable. So my range is kinda wide from 3* and above 2. Convenient to subway or even better close to some attractions (Omni is 2 blocks away from Rock center) (could be ignored )3. Close to downtown as some of our relati
  6. Can this coupon be used in resort at Hawaii? I've used PL's own bonus cash which does almost the same thing. You can bid $10 lower than you target price, and the bonus cash fills that $10 in for you. But the bonus cash generally says valid for 3,3.5 or 4 star hotel. Do not know if it's still there if I bid for a resort (a separate category at Maui). Anyone knows?
  7. Haven't used Priceline for about half a year, just now I was trying the bid on a 3.5 star and plus property for the incoming weekend at Myrtle beach, strange things happened. There were 6 bidding zones, my main target zone4 has level 3.5 star all the way to 1 star, zone 1 has only 2 star and below. After the system rejected the 1st price, I added the zone 2 as free rebidding zone and increased my price my $10, leaving the star level still at 3.5 star. After a while, it rejected the price again, not only this the site directed me to a result page from conventional search at my desired time and
  8. And I did find my rejected request per your hint, but it would not let me to change it at all. Once I clicked on this request, it directed me back to that exactly same search page. It reads "Thank you for using name your price, we can't accept your offer, here is what we found...". It's more like they don't want me to rebid.

  10. I might need some help with the bidding for Gatlingurg-Pigeon Forge around the date I mentioned in title. I've tried to bid in Gatlinburg, Gatlinburg North and Pigeon Forge area, 2* and above, but couldn't find any record for anytime in October. My bid is 60 bux now, still no response from neither one from the 3 areas, the problem is I need 3 rooms. I've searched Holidy Inn and other hotels' own websites, but no availabe place according to my requirements. Any suggestion? Thanks a lot
  11. Saw the price somewhere else, start bid was 50 and it was rejected. Then added 2 bux more and crystal city area, got the room. Pretty good review here, but nobody mentioned it had only one bed room? I just called to arrange two-bed room, being told there was only one-bed room. Sounds rediculous for me that a 2.5* has no two-bed rooms. Or the guy just meant that on that day no two-bed was left. We have two guys here, what should I do besides sleeping with a guy?
