And a additional 10% discount
how is that possible if priceline makes you pay your bid?

sometimes it's necessary to read between the lines, but yes, if he wasnt referring to bidding (highly unlikely), you would be right

terms and conditions clearly state no priceline bids.

+1 figured as such...
so maybe a priceline 'low' up front quote is what they''ll match..

I still see Cash&Points and spg points as being worthwhile - even the $3.95 vr X 14 card for a 7,000 point room is $55.30
which is good for a decent back-up room for travel. (+ free Gold/Plat upgrade)

Whats the best way to find availability for "cash & points"?

There might be a simpler way than this but this how I do it.
On the spg home page search for hotels in the city that the hotel you want to stay at is in, (put in any dates for the check in and check out). It should take you to a page that lists all the starwood hotels in that city. Underneath the hotel name there's a calendar with an option to browse rates/dates.

I wake up today to find some extra starwood points in my account. One set was credited as " goodwill starpoints manual ccc" from a recent stay I had. The other was also credited as goodwill starpoints manual from a stay at a hotel in Dallas which I've never been to.
   Any chance they won't take them back? Did this ever happen to anyone else?
