TravelSort.com, where I write a weekly column, is launching their reverse auction hotel sales today. Basically (as far as I can tell), there will be a very nice hotel up for auction every week, and it goes to the first bidder (given that it’s a reverse auction). This week it’s one night in a club room at the Ritz Carlton New York Battery Park. Next week it seems to be one night in a Park view suite at the Trump Hotel in New York.
Anyway, I’m guessing the initial response won’t be huge (after all, people are still learning about TravelSort.com), so you might be able to snag a deal here if you’re into luxury hotels. To participate, you need to become a member of TravelSort.com, buy credits (required to bid on an auction), and then bid on an auction. Detailed instructions can be found here. If you use the coupon code “Lucky” at check-out, you can receive two free credits that can be used for bidding. Unfortunately for the time being, this offer is only open to U.S. residents, excluding residents of California, Florida, Iowa, and Washington. In other words, I’m excluded! So if you don’t live in one of those states, are planning a trip to New York, and like luxury hotels, this is for you.
