  1. I decided to scrap the idea of priceline in New Buffalo, MI. Thanks for all the help, though.
  2. I want to use priceline again for the New Buffalo, MI area. I tried to find the calendar of wins button but was unsuccessful. You may remember that typing and tapping is painful for me. Could you help me find it again? Thanks so much!
  3. Thank you very much for all the help. The Best Western Kirkwood worked very well. It was the perfect pick for us.
  4. I took your advice today. I did one bid for $54, then added another zone and did a bid for $57. Then I used priceline express and Priceline Coupon BBJAN20 as you suggested. Priceline express cost $65, minus the 5% off coupon, for the Best Western Kirkwood Inn. I am VERY PLEASED AND EXCITED. Could you direct me to the right link to post all of this? Thanks so much for all the step by step help!
  5. Thanks. All 3 stars. Fenton is 3 stars, Hazelwood no greater than 2stars. So far, my rejected bids with one zone, was $33, then adding two zones, $34. Took your advice and got rejected again with one zone at $47 (I'm just that frugal) and added two zones at $51. They offered that I increase by $19; I signed off. I do understand how to bid in less than 24 hours by adding a zone. I ENJOY this. I learned this about bidding again in less than 24 hours. 9 eastern last night, my bid for $34 was rejected. At 10:39 EST, they sent an email saying I could bid again, no need to change zones or dates. So that's what I meant about bidding in less than 24 hours. Is this perk common? I'm telling my friends about this fun!
  6. Thanks. That's very helpful. Did I see somewhere that you don't necessarily have to wait 24 hours?
  7. No question I am sticking to your advice only on where to click. Can't add additional zones because of trouble riding in a car. Good to know there is 1 other re-bid zone. I looked at link you sent with dates and wins and saw one 3* years ago for *41. Was offered $63 or so for express deals or hotwire, so I think has to be much lower than that. I have a lot of time to keep rebidding before 1/18 so I don't mind tiny increments. No way would I bid over $60.
  8. Dates are 1/18-1/20, 2020, two rooms, only want Fenton. 3* only. I do understand how to work it so venn diagrams don't overlap or whatever. Thanks a mil
  9. THis is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo helpful. They flat out lied and said it could ONLY be done on the app, then a bunch of gobledygook. Should have stuck with you. Worth your weight in gold!
  10. Thanks. In the end, we booked a private condo in Mexico. I'm having lots of problems with Priceline. 1) Name Your own price won't come up on link you provided- chat people say only on the app. Is this a mistake? Chatting is very difficult and time-consuming- have done it 6 or so times. They keep pushing over and over to NOT use bidding option. After quite some time trying to figure something out, one just hung up on me suddenly. This was without me making him/her wait. 2) Is there a way to store credit card and address in app so you don't have to put it in every time? Chat answer very difficult to understand because 3) Is there a way to get Name Your Own price to really let you name your own price? It let me do it once. Now it just tells me there are no deals available and wants to convert me to express deals. What do I have to do to back out of it and really be permitted to put my own price in? The chat option makes you answer the same questions over and over and I've had enough of being told to use some other product. Thanks a million. Name your own price has been a gem.
  11. Hi, I have nerve problems and limited ability to type/tap. I can't find prices for Priceline St. Louis Fenton. I looked at calendar of wins but found nothing. Also, I scrolled through a few pages of wins but just don't have ability to keep scrolling. Tried search box but found nothing. I see hotwire has $64 for 3 star with last guest getting Holiday Inn and Suites Fenton. I have no idea where to start bidding. Maybe $35? Can someone help? Thanks.
  12. I took a look at Xpu Ha for 4/22/17-4/24/17, for two adults. Found 4 star, $227 per room per night. FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Resort, Suite, Beachfront hotel, Free food and drinks, A la carte dining, Free water activities, Free entertainment, Free activities, Children's activities, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Golf nearby, Tennis nearby, Spa services. This is not an exact match to your list, 4.5 Star Grand Palladium Kantenah. Wording of amenities is slightly different, notable the words "Suite" and "Internet access" and "Nightly entertainment. Also, Kantenah, from your list, has 4.5 out of 5 on tripadvisor, and this has 4 out of 5 on tripadvisor. Any ideas? Thanks!
  13. I think I'll switch to a location with better snorkeling. Thanks.
  14. Hmmm. With children's activities, it can't be Valentin Imperial Maya. Valentin Imperial Maya is adult only. I was looking at the area by google earth and didn't see anything else in that area. I don't want to pay much more than that. Have been interested in a place with good snorkeling.
  15. Amenities listed on hotwire: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Resort, Beachfront hotel, Free food and drinks, A la carte dining, Free water activities, Smoke-free rooms 4.5-star All-inclusive Hotel in Playa del Secreto - Playa Paraiso area 60% Approval 4.5 out of 5 on tripadvisor reviews, matches tripadvisor 4/22/17-4/24/17. $159 per night for two adults. Does this look like Valentin Imperial Maya? It does not include all the amenities on your hotel listing. I know there are no guarantees. Thanks for your input.
