Dear all,
Using amazing-bargains links of course, my bidding strategy was
5* Orchard Rd $100
4 * Orchard Rd $100
5* and 4 * Marina Bay $100
4* Riverside $100 (saw a previous successful bid for $117 for holiday inn atrium, going for $169 on their website)

Decided to pursue 5* in Orchard due to convenient location and not much price difference

5* Orchard + Riverside (free rebid) $130
Priceline offered $165
I declined
5* Orchard +Financial (free rebid) $145 and got accepted

OMG, really! I've been out of the loop for this long!
So sorry!
Will use the new link from now on. Why is not amazing-bargains shut down, it just gets a free ride on your reference, no!

BTW, the best available rate was $200 for the Goodwood hotel.

We had an excellent 10 year partnership with Amazing-Bargains and there are no hard feelings at all. It was just time to make the change. I was very ill and away from BiddingForTravel.com for almost two years until early February and the change went into effect upon my return to BiddingForTravel.com. Please read my recent posts in Administrator and Member Announcements. There is actually a short period of time remaining in our partnership agreement with Amazing-Bargains so we will receive credit for your bid. That's a shame that a lower bid wasn't accepted based on that $200 rate.

I have been trying to book a Singapore hotel for a few weeks now unsuccessfully. Tried up to $150. Around the same dates as yourself, but flowing into the weekdays. I finally got a offer from Priceline to bid $175 so I stopped. I figured it was the Goodward Park since it was Orchard area.

I will try again as it gets closer, seems hotels may want to dump their inventory as it gets closer. Otherwise I see plenty of rooms in SG available on the normal booking channels.

Noodlesz, please post your failed bid as a new topic including your travel dates and the lowest 5* hotel rate available for your dates and name the hotel alongside the rate as the Goodwood Park might not be the lowest.
