I use Priceline regularly and today I encountered a different reply to my bid. I placed a bid for a 4* dfw hotel @ $45 and it came back saying that I had been rejected and that I should bid $13 higher. I attempted several ways of trying to add a zone and bidding $50 but it would return me to the $13 higher bid page. I even rebooted my computer. Finally I bid the $13 higher and got the hotel for $58. Did I miss something here?
