I have used priceline in the past with good results. Until todays visit anyways.
I needed to book a hotel for next month. I found one I like, the priceline page said "PAY LATER" and "FREE CANCELLATION" which are two reasons I use Priceline. Rarely my plans change but I always prefer to pay AT the hotel on the day I arrive. Well, upon submitting my reservation I received an immediate mobile notification from my credit card that I was charged $229 from Priceline (so much for pay later) and I received an email from priceline confirming my reservation AND that the room was booked and cancellation was prohibited.
Really? Talk about the ole bait and switch.
I have launched a site at www.PricelineSucks.net in hopes of filing a class action suit regarding their deceptive and fraudulent practice. Enough is enough.
Product or Service Mentioned: Priceline Room Booking.
Reason of review: False and deceptive advertising.
Preferred solution: to stop being lied to. I was lead to believe I would be able to cancel AND that I would pay at the hotel the day of the stay, both LIES!.
