  6. For anyone who puts $725 or more a year on priceline products that qualify for the 4 points per dollar rate this card more than pays for itself. here is the earnings structure: 4 points per $1 earned on "Name Your Own Price" transactions 3 points per $1 earned on eligible "Priceline.com" transactions 2 points per $1 earned on Utilities (cable internet service, electric and gas payments, etc.) 1 point per $1 earned on all other purchase transactions 5,000 points earned for first purchase Welcome Bonus (for the card with the $29 annual fee, this bonus is worth $50) The 3 points per $1 for non-bidding products has led me to purchase such products from priceline for the first time (and I've been using priceline since it launched). For example, I just bought $3400 in airfare with my airline of choice via priceline's non-bidding product. $102 cashback is nice considering this is airfare I will be reimbursed for :) If I used my airline card I would have earned 3400 redeemable miles to add to my pile of >200,000 miles with this carrier. This earnings structure is much better than most hotel or airline cards as with those cards you are locked into earning points or miles that expire and are constantly being devalued. I prefer cashback and a 4% cash back rate (after the $725 threshold) works for some of us. The last thing I need is more airline miles. I don't have time to use the hundreds of thousands I have now LOL edited to add that there is no annual cap on the cash back that can be earned, unlike many cashback cards. Redeeming points is easy too; you can do it online by selecting which current charge you want to pay for with your points. I like not having to wait for a check, gift card, etc to be able to use the earned cashback.
  7. I was thinking about it in terms of copyright. :)
  8. NOTE: Historical bid. I am posting this win for a data point for future bidders looking for a New Year's Eve room in Las Vegas. This win was made a few days before NYE. Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel Convention Center - Unlv Area 3400 Paradise Road Las Vegas, Nevada 89169-2770
  9. I tried several towns east river last month and nothing on PRICELINE hit.
  10. I noticed this, but sometimes it defaults to the old graphic maps; still, a nice enhancement!
  11. Just adding this for the data point. Hotel was fine and walking distance to where I needed to be. For vistors to Cambridge proper the location requires a car or ample budget for taxi. Holiday Inn Cambridge North Lake View Bridge Road Cambridge, United Kingdom
  12. Pan Pacific Singapore City Hall / Marina Bay 7 Raffles Boulevard Marina Square Singapore, Singapore
  13. Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Union Square West Number One Nob Hill San Francisco, California 94108
  14. Has anyone else noticed TOBB stole the hotel list for at least one major city from betterbidding?
  15. I hope you did not bid 3 star. I got stuck at the Thistle Gatwick and it was the worse room I have ever stayed at. I'll post a review when I get some free time. For now, take a look at tripadvisor.com's reviews...
