LinkStuff – Priceline Non-Savings Edition

by Mike Holman

I just finished booking a hotel room in downtown Toronto using Priceline.com. I was curious about how Priceline worked and how much money it would save. Unfortunately, I made a mistake when I entering the bids and ended up with an extra hotel room which cost me $116. Oops!
