    It seems appropriate to have some kind of thread that concentrates on these online deals, especially since they offer the frequent traveler the option of foregoing points but receiving luxury for the price, often, of a Hilton Garden Inn.

    I've used all the above services and find them to be, in most cases, excellent. You just have to check the properties against Tripadvisor for possible horror stories and, if the stars align, you have yourself a 5 star hotel for 3 star pricing. In many ways, these new services have replaced priceline and hotwire as go to alternatives, especially outside the U.S.
     
  2. What I really like about them is, unlike Hotwire or Priceline which I would seldom do, is that you know exactly what you are getting and can do you due diligence on the property (TripAdvisor, etc.) Also, I love the eye candy when all of the daily alerts arrive in my inbox.

    While I definitely see a point in having this kind of thread I'm not sure Groupon gives any deals for luxury properties. The other sites while not dedicated to luxury can at times give some real good deals for luxury properties.

    More than any other site I believe Charitybuzz has some of the most spectacular luxury deals with regard to both value and exclusivity.

    I somehow got into tablet, which claims that it charges, for free. Don't remember how! Anyhow, their Monday email offers really seem nothing special, and mainly feature hotels at least one notch below luxury.

    For Tablet it's only the Private Sales that really matter, for everything else you're better of with Kayak for cutting costs or Virtuous for the amenities.

    Another site that should be mentioned is http://www.luxurylink.com
    The danger with this place is that you need to call up the place and confirm open dates prior to closing a sale. If you can handle that though LL has some great deals and are able to pose real luxury properties.

    It seems that I have to eat those words about Groupon not offering luxury hotels.

    I'll try to introduce a convention for posting these deals.

    Property: <Self explanatory>
    Site: <Name of site with link to the particular deal embedded in the link>

    Offer available: <How long the offer is available>

    Dates valid: <The time period when the offer can be booked incl. black out dates>
    Details: <if applicable>

    Since some of these sites can have varying prices on different dates I think the above five factors are the most important at a glance. I know one particular guru on the FT luxury forum that even includes a price comparison between rack rate and avg. deal rate. But that can be something of a chore to look up.

    If you just want to copy the the empty template check below:

    Code:
    [b]Property:[b]
    [b]Site:[/b]
    [b]Offer available:[/b]
    [b]Dates valid:[/b]
    [b]Details:[/b]
    With all this said I present my first offering:

    Property: Grand Hotel Stockholm
    Site: Groupon
    Offer available: Today, 2011-02-12
    Dates valid: Up til 5/1 -2011
    Details: 2990 SEK (ca $460) for a 2 night stay incl. Breakfast, free wi-fe and spa entrance

    I'm on Jetsetter and Voyage Privé, but have never used them. Am I correct in assuming that you will not earn any points/miles for hotel stays booked through such a site?

    I have always assumed that, unless someone makes a mistake, no points or stay credit will be awarded. I have thought of these sites as a way to branch out beyond my fairly narrow Hyatt, SPG and occasionally Priority Club world.
