Can You Get a Better Deal than Priceline?
This past weekend, my husband ran in the OKC Memorial Marathon (YAY!) which meant we had to stay overnight in Oklahoma City. I actually ended up finding a ton of points from an old credit card so I scored the room for only $14. But something happened when I arrived at the hotel that surprised me.
Normally, when I book a hotel room, I scroll through tons of deal sites like Expedia, Priceline, etc. When I handed over the receipt for my room the woman noticed the credit card company booked via Priceline. She then told me that the next time I travel, I need to call the hotel directly and let them know what Priceline is quoting. She went on to tell me that they could not only match that price but many times, they can beat it.
That's great information! The next time you travel, check out those low prices on the famous deal sites then make the phone call and see if you can score an even better deal!
