I had many frustrations using Priceline and Express Deals today. This was for a stay tonight (for my mother).

For Springfield, VA I saw an Express Deal for a 3* @ $52. I bid up to $50 with no luck. Went to purchase the Express Deal and they had trouble processing my request and asked me to retry. I did many times and no dice.

For Woodbridge, VA the Express Deal was $66 for a 3*. I bid up to $63 with no luck again. Went to purchase the Express Deal and the same thing happened.

For BWI, MD the express deal was $57 for a 3* and $63 for a 3.5*. I bid up to $55 for the 3* and $60 for the 3.5*, no good. Tried to purchase each Express Deal and no luck again.

I was so irritated with Priceline that I ended up using Hotwire.

Could it be the same day check-in why I ran into so much trouble? In the middle of this madness I did book an Express Deal for St Petersburg, so I know my account is just fine.

Never heard of this happening so I don't have any idea what the issue was but it's definitely disturbing.

Turned out to be a credit card issue.

The puzzling part is they are the same credit cards I've been using on Priceline for a long time.

I have been doing some random searches this morning and have noticed that Express Deals are offering multiple hotels with the same star level in a particular zone. For example, I saw three different 3* hotels being available in the Newark Airport zone for this Friday.

I don't recall ever seeing these scenarios before.

I don't either. Thanks for the heads up. This is good news.

I noticed the same thing for Las Vegas about a week ago.
