Priceline.com's Express Deals(sm) Goes Mobile - New No-Bid Hotel Booking Option Now Available For IPhone, Android And Mobile Web





NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Priceline.com (Nasdaq: PCLN) announced today that its money-saving, no-bidding Express Deals(sm) hotel booking option is now available for travelers with iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices, and those who access the mobile version of priceline.com's website.  Express Deals, which was introduced earlier this year, is designed for families and other guests who need specific amenities, like a pool or certain bed type, along with that famous priceline.com discount of up to 45%.

The Express Deals option is now automatically included in the Priceline Negotiator app that can be downloaded for free from the Android market https://market.android.com/details?id=com.priceline.android.negotiator.  It also can be downloaded for free from the iTunes store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/priceline-hotel-car-negotiator/id336381998?mt=8&uo=4.  Travelers with other devices can access priceline.com's mobile-friendly website at m.priceline.com.

Express Deals offers deals at thousands of hotels around the globe without having to bid.  Customers view a page that includes amenities (pool, gym, on-site restaurant, etc.), star level (including luxurious 4- and 5-star properties and resorts), neighborhood, guest satisfaction scores on a 1-10 scale, and a special sale price that's been discounted up to 45%.  In many cases, customers can choose their bedding type (1 king, 2 doubles, etc.).  After booking at the discounted price, the name of the specific hotel is revealed.  Express Deals is covered by priceline.com's Big Deal Guarantee. If a customer books an Express Deals hotel reservation and finds a better price any time up until the day before check-in, priceline.com will match that price and give the customer $25.*

Express Deals is the second major enhancement this month for the Priceline Negotiator app.  Last week, priceline.com announced the expansion of its Tonight-Only Deals® last-minute hotel service - another highly popular (and free) app feature - to cover 150 destinations. Tonight-Only Deals® requires no bidding and gives mobile device-equipped travelers access to an exclusive inventory of top-quality hotel rooms at discounts of up to 40% or more off priceline.com's regular published hotel prices.  Unlike Express Deals, Tonight-Only Deals are only available for stays starting that same night.  Stays can last from one to four nights.  Tonight-Only Deals® will be posted on the service at 11:00 a.m. local time.  Room reservations can be instantly booked up until 11:00 p.m. local time, or until they sell out.  The app shows the names of all the available Tonight-Only Deals® hotels with descriptions, maps and photos, along with the rates and the percentage discounts.  Tonight-Only Deals® also will display each hotel's customer satisfaction score and reviews generated by priceline.com guests who have stayed there. Tonight-Only Deals also is covered by priceline.com's Big Deal Guarantee.
