And another reason why checking retail rates is so paramount is that not all hotels participate with Express Deals. I can no longer say what discount from the Express Deal you can expect as just today the Express Deal was $128 and a winning bid was $56. Further, the retail was was $159 which clearly means the Express Deal wasn't even a good deal.Sheryl wrote:
