I had read mostly good reviews for the Hapuna Prince Beach north of KOA on the Big Island, and I was thinking that the safest bet would be to use Hotwire, which had it for $243/nt in early August 2006. I figured I'd try Priceline, however, since the other "Resorts" in that area were good as well. So, I tried $175/nt. The Prince website was showing something like $310/nt at the cheapest, but those rooms (presumably) sold out, since the past few days have only shown $400/nt rooms. My first bid on PL was $175, which was rejected. I got an "up-the-bid" page from PL, suggesting that I increase the bid by $25. From a tactic I heard on this site (thanks, btw), I chose not to do this. Instead, I chose to "change my bid" by including the Hilo section as well. Hilo does not have any Resorts, so this was safe. I upped my bid $10 to $185/nt... Lo and behold, the bid was accepted by Hapuna Prince Beach, and I saved another $15/nt (hey, it's something better than nothing) over NOT taking the "suggested bid increase" of $25 that I received after my first bid was rejected.
