Expedia’s US website offers Best Price Guarantee program that promises to match lower prices on other US based websites and throws in a $50 hotel coupon for later use.
You can access Expedia’s web page for its Best Price Guarantee here.
Here’s the latest update:
- Best Price Guarantee. In the unlikely event that you find a lower rate on Expedia.com or on another U.S.-based website within 24 hours of booking with Expedia.com, we will credit or refund to you the difference in price. In addition, we will give you a fifty dollar ($50.00US) coupon good on a future booking of an Expedia Special Rate hotel or air plus hotel package on Expedia.com with a $100 USD minimum value before taxes and fees. This Best Price Guarantee is subject to the terms and conditions listed below.
Now, the $50 hotel coupon suddenly has a minimum spend requirement of $100 or more before taxes/fees.
Here are some successful Expedia Best Price Guarantee cases that I have written about:
You can always book hotels cheaper on other OTA’s that are offering better coupons and/or prices than Expedia. If they are slowly watering down the BPG program as they did with their Expedia Rewards (now Expedia Rewards+), why bother?
Make sure if your Expedia Bet Price Guarantee coupon was issued before November 20, 2014, that they don’t hit you with the minimum spend.
