Time for another Groupon nationwide deal for 11/24, this time to save money on bidding on hotels on Priceline.com. You have two options:
- For $20, you get $40 toward a bid on any three-star or better hotel on Priceline.com
- For $40, you get $80 toward a bid on any three-star or better hotel on Priceline.com
So if you bought the $80 bid and won a 2 night stay for $100 total, you’d only end up paying $60 for it. More fine print:
Expires Mar 25, 2011. Limit 1 per person. Valid only for option purchased. Valid only for 3-star or better hotels on Name Your Own Price. Exact hotel shown only after purchase. $1 minimum bid/night req’d. Taxes and fees not incl’d. Not valid w/ other offers.
Here is the Groupon deal link from Ft. Lauderdale, but anyone can buy and use it. If you don’t have a Groupon account already, please use my sign-up link first. It’s free for you, and I’ll get some Groupon credit for future deals. Groupon is a popular group-buying site where in major metro areas you get one deal per day from a local retailer as long as enough people sign up for it, along with occasional nationwide offers.
Finally, a while back I wrote about some tips on using Priceline here. By using databases that include actual winning bids, you can see what is available and optimize your bidding. Good luck!
