That’s why I enjoy bidding for “name your own price” hotels on Priceline.
On December 31, 2013, for one day only, Priceline is offering an extra 5 percent discount off “name your own price” hotel rooms.
The coupon code is JE27MES7.
The discount applies only to two night reservations for two star hotels and above.
When I book Priceline hotels, I like to use my Barclaycard Arrival™ World MasterCard® credit card, which earns two times points on Priceline reservations. This no annual fee travel rewards credit card offers a $200 signup bonus (worth $220 because of a 10 percent bonus on redemptions).
The signup bonus helped offset the cost of the room reservation, plus I earned two times points on the reservation and the other travel expenses and restaurant meals.
I plan on keeping the Barclaycard Arrival™ World MasterCard® for the long haul. Because there is no annual fee, this is an ideal card with which to to build your credit history!
