  1. Dates of stay: Check-in - 5/20/09 Check-out 5/22/09 Courtyard by Marriott Columbus Airport
  2. Taking my girlfriend for an anniversary getaway. Wanted a 3+star close to Easton mall for shopping. Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $64.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Nights: 2 Room Subtotal: $128.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $29.91 (USD) Total Room Cost: $157.91 (USD) My bidding history was a little funky. Instead of staying on the screen, I would back out and start over each time I bid, each time keeping the CMH zone constant. During the process I started with a 4* bid at $40. It was rejected, and I backed out and tried it at $50, I repeated this in $10 increments til I reached $80 (my personal limit) and got rejected. Then I lowered it to a 3-star and did the process til I reached $50. At this point I got a notice saying "if you increase your bid by $14, you'll get the room." I thought, hmmm that's cheap for a 3 star, I wonder what I can get for a 3.5* and I got rejected for all of those bids (up to $70). At this point I knew I could get a 3* for $64 dollars, so I went in one last time and booked my room. I wonder if it was a glitch for me since I'm on a network at work.
  3. I've been able to successfully bid again using the same area and star ratings. All I have to do is back out to the main PRICELINE screen and start the bidding process over again. For example, I bid $50 for a 3-star in the Columbus Airport area. It got rejected. I went to the main screen, clicked the "Name your own price" link, selected the airport area, 3-stars, and increased my bid. I repeated this process until I placed my final bid for $64 which was accepted (for a 3-star averaging at $169)
