3.5 * Blaine Semiahmoo Resort 8/25-27 $79 (topic)
Looks like I left $1 on the table last time when I bid $80 rather than $79 after failing at $78.  Conventional rate was the same $169 tonight as it was two weeks ago.  Interestingly the original offer on an Express bid for the same...

3* Missoula Hilton Garden Inn Missoula North 9/20 $65 (reply)
Yes, I did bid through BFT.  A question though-  If you need to use several rebids which require going to a "new" bidding screen do you have to go through the BFT site to begin each bidding opportunity or is there a way to get back to a...

3.5* Sea-Tac Hilton 12/2 $45  (topic)
A spectacular deal methinks.  Got it on the first bid so should have started lower but I can't imagine the price could have been too much under $45.  I just hate to overbid by anything.  This is the lowest price I've seen...

Rates for that night are very low:  Hilton $90, Marriott $118, Sheraton $99, Westin $89.  And yet no success at $65?  How crazy is that?  I'm obviously bidding too early.  I'll cool my jets and be back in a week...
