Summer's here and priceline.com is pulling out all the stops to get you a BIG deal on a top-quality hotel room with its Hotel Big Deal Days for Name Your Own Price hotel rooms. To make it even easier for Name Your Own Price hotel customers to get their rooms at up to 60% savings over published rates, priceline.com is adding a new Hotel Bid Alerts feature to its Winning Bids service. Winning Bids on priceline.com shows actual successful Name Your Own Price hotel bids made in the past by other priceline.com customers. Winning Bids show the city, neighborhood, bid amount, estimated percentage savings, and how long ago the bid was made. Now, if you don't see a winning bid that works for you, you can create a personalized Hotel Bid Alert by entering your desired city, neighborhood, hotel star level (or levels) and bid amount. When someone does get that deal, priceline.com will send you an e-mail alert, so you can try yourself. "For many families, $4-a-gallon gasoline has put a real strain on their vacation budget," said priceline.com Chief Marketing Officer Brett Keller. "Priceline.com's Hotel Big Deal Days and the new Hotel Bid Alert feature are our contributions to lowering the overall cost of a vacation, so that more families can travel this summer." Hotel Big Deal Days is backed by priceline.com's Name Your Own Price® Big Deal Hotel Price Guarantee. If you book a Priceline Name Your Own Price® hotel room and find a better price any time up until the day before check-in, priceline.com will match that price, pay you a $25 bounty and give you a $50 Priceline Vacation Package coupon.
