I started with 4* in Fort Lauderdale Beach area, but there was "Saturday checkin" glitch - I need to pay 1 more day, also I got feeling that hotel would be 4* Hyatt Regency Pier 66 (Express deal showed $96/d for that area) - too far from the ocean, so I decided to go down for 3-1/2 star option.
I checked Express Deal and got obvious B Ocean Resort for $78/d.
I identified 2 free zones there with 3* hotels as maximum, so - 3 free rebids.
B Ocean resort website gave $123/d.
I started bid from $65/d. Rejected. Counter offer for +$17 ($82/d) was given. $65+($17/2)=$73.5 - to keep in mind.
1st free rebid - $70 - rejected.
I made new bid (desired zone+2nd free-zone) - $74/d - accepted by B Ocean Resort.
Thus, Room subtotal: $222.00 + Taxes & fees: $38.25 = Total charged $260.25

Next day I need another night in Fort Lauderdale.
I followed the same procedure.
I checked Express Deal and got obvious B Ocean Resort for $67/d.
Same 2 free zones.
B Ocean resort website gave $101/d.
I started bid from $60/d. Rejected. Counter offer for +$13 ($73/d) was given. $60+($13/2)=$66.5 - almost Express Deal price.
1st free rebid - $63 - accepted by B Ocean Resort.
Thus, Room Subtotal: $63.00 + Taxes & Fees: $13.26 = Total charged $76.26

I used link from this website for bidding.
