Expedia has two separate best price guarantee programs for hotels. One is only valid for 24 hours after making the purchase and matches the price with a $50 coupon for future use. The other one is valid only for Expedia Rewards members and is valid until 24 hours before scheduled check in time and merely matches the lower price without extra discounts or coupons.
