There have not been any Express Deals for 5* in the past week.   I have been checking daily.

Then it's doubtful Priceline has any 5* inventory. I would just keep checking. Generally speaking, expect a 5%-10% discount off Express Deals (before any coupon code).

Please place your Priceline/Hotwire bids/purchases through the link in my signature or by clicking the Priceline/Hotwire banners on the right side of the screen. And please keep Priceline in mind for your conventional travel bookings as well.

Good to know that the Express Deal tie into whether they have inventory.   I never knew that.   I will keep watching and see what happens as we get closer to November.

Not 100% of the time but generally. Bidding and Express Deals are both Name Your Own Price inventory. The Priceline affiliate manager told me that a few months ago.
