Prices are in USD
1) in the Ocala zone, bid a "rounded up" 40% of the lowest area average price that PL reported for a 3* (i.e. allegedly $119), or $48; bid rejected with a counteroffer of +$10, or $58; I declined and continued to rebid;
2) added Ocala South, bid $50; rejected
3) added Silver Springs, bid $52; accepted
Tip: I've seemed to notice that, if you add about 20-40% of the "gap" amount between your bid and the offer/suggested amount, you frequently "win" your bid at a much lower cost than would otherwise be suggested by the counteroffer that PL makes, thus typically saving about 60-80% of that gap amount.

I began my bidding and price comparisons on BB from the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links. Please do the same for yours.
