    Hmmmmmmmmm. I keep thinking about the one time I used them, returned the item and got stuck with a very large return fee. Wondering how they can screw this up!

    These are some seriously low numbers.

    I did read and this was in today's USA Today's Travel section Tuesday, hotels, that they quote the rate as a per person rate based on double so it may or may not be a good buy. I am not sure why they would quote rooms that way when most rooms at least in the US are based on a per room per night basis rather than a person per room per night. Usually a single will pay the same room rate as 2 persons staying in the same room at least in the US. The way they are quoting the rates may in fact be confusing to many.
