[Milepoint doesn't seem to have a "travel booking and bidding" forum. If I've just missed the right place to ppst this, feel free to move it.] It used to be that Priceline would occasionally offer you a chance to bid again on hotels without changing zone, star level, or dates. I call it a "nibble", a sure sign you are getting close to a price that Priceline will take. Before, how much you has to increase your bid seemed to be tied to the bid you made. As your bid went up, so did the amount you had to raise your bid to use priceline's offered rebid, though in steps. Example: Bid $60, offered a chance to rebid for +$15 ($75). $62 & $64, likewise ($77 & $79). Bid $66, $67, $68, or $69, offered a chance to rebid for +$20 ($86, $87, $88, $89). Winning price: $70. This weekend I saw something very different: an add-on amount that went DOWN, resulting in the same "bid this" price: Bid $52, offered a chance to rebid for +$14 ($66). Bid $55, offered +$11 (also $66). Bid $57, offered +$9 (also $66). Won at $61. (No idea what would have happened at 58, 59, or 60.) Have others seem the same, perchance?
