The trick here is that you can “game” the Priceline Bidding system by adding zones that don’t have hotels in your class (e.g., if you bid on a 4 star hotel, add a city nearby that doesn’t have any 4 star hotels in it) details at How to Beat Priceline Check Priceline’s Airline Statistics for the most popular routes to see savings (from Airfare Watchdog, Priceline Now Posting Bid Statistics ) Be patient….
