Let me just say that Priceline is kind of awesome. Because we’re staying here on Saturday night…!
We’re going to Kansas City this weekend to see the KC Wizards play Manchester United. Husband is a huge soccer fan and a friend of his got us tickets.
But I didn’t want to spend Saturday night at my grandma’s. To be honest, it’s because of the smoke. My step-grandfather smokes – and not just outside and lets it waft in. Nope, he lights up every few hours sitting at the kitchen table.
When I went few weekends ago, I had to wash every.single.thing that I took in to the house. And then febreeze the suitcase. Ick.
So yeah, we’re going to a hotel. But those things are expensive! I remember someone saying that Priceline has a feature where you can name your own price for a pretty sweet hotel.
I picked the area we wanted to stay in and put in a bid for $35 for a 3 star. Surprisingly, it was rejected! The three star hotels in Priceline usually go for over $100. But it was worth a shot, right?
I expanded the area I was ok with and upped the bid by five bucks. And you know what? It was accepted! We’re staying at a Ramada – which, by the way, are really nice!
I called the hotel after it was confirmed and just double-checked that they had us down for a king-size bed. With taxes, it was just over $50 – a perfect way to spend a night away from the craziness of work and law school.
So Priceline is helping me get our mini vacation across the state for not a huge price tag! Yippee!
