HOLY SH!T IT WORKED!
I’m sure you’re all aware of Priceline’s “Name Your Own Price” feature (thanks to William Shatner), but I’ve never actually used it…or really even considered taking such a risk.
But this weekend is my friend’s wedding in Austin, and Trey and I were looking to live large and spend nothing. Ok, that’s not true. We need to stay in downtown Austin near the venues and not spend the usual $200+ on a room for one night.
I went to Hotels.com and found out that The Hampton Inn (where all of our friends are staying) is $169 without taxes. Ummm….Let me investigate others in the area. Nothing. Trey suggested Priceline for a 3.5 star hotel at $100. I said no! Let’s go 4 stars. Bam!! 2 minutes on Priceline and we’re booked at the Hyatt in the center of the action. Sweet deal.
