Are there any decent (and current) sites for getting Priceline bidding help? The former go-to site was http:/www.biddingfortravel.com, but I checked their Washington, DC board and it seemed like there weren't any current posts. Not surprising I guess, given that the site owner was obnoxious and had a habit of blocking people's IP addresses if she didn't like them (or if they did not use her links).

Then I checked http://www.betterbidding.com, which has been good in the past but also doesn't seem to have a lot of current posts.

Finally, I searched and found http://www.biddingtraveler.com/ which seems to operate under the approach where they give you bidding suggestions and then you submit directly thru them (which gets them referral cash, of course). But they don't have a lot of data for Washington, DC, either).

So where are people going for bidding help these days? Is there another site?

I've used both of those sites in the past. I've been blocked in the past by BiddingForTravel. I'd stick with BetterBidding. Post a bidding question there. (I see there are a few Priceline wins reported in DC in the last few months - there are posts in July and August.)

It's common courtesy to use BetterBidding's links whenever you bid for Priceline (or visit Hotwire), because they deserve the commission for any help they give you, and it doesn't cost you more. I usually do whether they have helped me recently or not.

Agreed!

is there any discussion about your topic on flyertalk.com? it seems to be a pretty active forum for travel-related issues.

I can tell you that the amount of NYOP bidding has dropped dramatically in recent years. One of the reasons is the presence of Express Deals. Sometimes you can undercut the Express Deals price, sometimes you cannot. It becomes a game of value of time with diminishing returns. I would guess this is the biggest reason for the drop in NYOP data.
