so ive looked around occassionally at priceline but have never actually bought any tickets from them. i was wondering if people have good experiences with them. i just have hestitations about committing several hundred bucks for a plane ticket somewhere if i dont actually know what im getting. i'm just more comfortable knowing what im getting before i commit any money. but i didnt know if you guys have had luck with them, and if you've saved alot of money through it. i would ultimately be willing to try it if it saved me alot of money but if the difference is negligable i guess i'll stick to cheaptickets or finding deals straight through the airlines (which ive had the most luck finding the best deals)

Rather worthless right now in my opinion. I've tried to get several plane tickets on different occasions through them, and the bid was never accepted (even when the difference between what I was willing to pay and their actual ticket prices were minimal). Also tried getting hotels through them to no avail for a good deal. Ended up successfully getting on in San Antonio via Priceline for a semi decent price, but not being able to have a say in your hotel/flight times isn't worth the very minimal money you'll save (for the most part).

I simply don't like them.

I'll use them occasionally for finding a nice hotel room when I have to be somewhere for a wedding/etc., but otherwise, I could live just fine without them or their Shatner ads.
