My offer was accepted on the first bid ($75 - w/taxes $91.68) by the Doubletree in downtown Pittsburgh, which of course makes me suspicious of having too high of an initial bid. However, the sole PL Express deal for a 3.5* hotel downtown was $109. The Easy Cancellation (refundable) rate on the Doubletree's website is currently $189 (215.46 w/tax). I saved 57%, and I started the bidding by getting to PL from the BFT link.

Thank you for placing your bid through our link to Priceline. That's a mighty discount off the Express Deal.

Hmm... I just checked the Express Deals again, and the 3.5* Downtown hotel is now priced at $87. I may have misstated the price on the Express Deal, but my bid still undercuts it a bit.

That's more like the typical 5%-10% average discount off the Express Deal.

The $109 Express Deal was probably the Wyndham.
