SIZZLING HOT!!! HURRY!!! PRICE MISTAKE!!! AIRFARE AND HOTEL TO SELECT CITIES FOR ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!!!

342

Update 4: All systems go!
I have my boarding pass for my flight tomorrow and reconfirmed my hotel booking!
Additionally Expedia is now showing a charge for $270 and that a $270 refund has already been completed, just as I wrote would happen!
You can look up the refund details by looking up your itinerary on Expedia and clicking on “View payment history”

Update 3: You can read my trip notes from my last Vegas trip in 2009 my clicking on the “trip notes” tab above the main Dansdeals.com rotating banner.

Update 2, 3:40AM EST: This deal is now dead! Congratulations to those who got in!
Now we just have to hope they honor everything and that it all works out for the best!

Update: I’m booked to Vegas this week with 2 nights at the Bellagio and 2 tickets to a Cirque du soleil performance!
Total cost: $0.00
My 2 cents on the deal: The confirmation email clearly says $0. If Expedia doesn’t wind up honoring the $0 price and doesn’t refund the charge as they’re supposed to then I’ll simply dispute the charge with my credit card company. I don’t expect any major problems.
Hope to see some of you guys in Vegas!!!

Expedia Canada Linky

This deal is valid for $300 off airfare and hotel to Las Vegas, NYC, Cancun, and Riviera Maya.
It appears to work for departures from any airport.

-You need to book each passenger separately so they can each use the $400 coupon.
-Travel is valid through 12/31/10.

Here is a sample itinerary with full instructions!

Step 1: Click on this link to Expedia Canada

Step 2: Select “Flight+Hotel”.

Step 3: Type in travel from NYC to LAS (Las Vegas).

Step 4: Type in your travel dates. For this example use 11/28-11/29.
(Want to go for a longer period of time? Just click on “I only need a hotel for part of my trip” and just select a hotel for the first night of the trip!)

Step 5: Change from the default setting of 2 adults to 1 adult and then click “search for packages.”

Step 6:  Click “price” to sort results from the lowest price. For example you can pick “Circus Circus” for $293. The flight is on Delta. Depart JFK-LAS at 7:20AM-9:59AM. Return 9:59PM-5:50 AM.
Click “Select and continue.”

Step 7: Click on “No thanks, I already have travel insurance.”
Scroll down to the bottom of the next page and click “Continue with this booking”

Step 8: Uncheck the “Roundtrip Shuttle Ground Transportation” that added $12.20 to the package.

Step 9: After unchecking that option scroll down to the bottom of the page and click “Continue booking this package”

Step 10: Create an Expedia.ca account.

Step 11: Enter the passenger information and then click “Proceed to booking.”

Step 12: Scroll down to the bottom of the next page and click “Accept rules and continue”

Step 13: Scroll down to the billing info and click “I have a voucher.”

Step 14: Use the following coupon for $300 off and then click “Apply and Reprice”: SAVE300
Important: This likely will not work on your first try. Just keep hitting “Apply and Reprice.” After doing it a number of times it should work and subtract off $300, making the package completely free!

Step 15: The new total will be $0. You still need to enter in credit card and billing info and click “complete this booking”!
You will be charged by the airline for the price of a ticket, however within 2 days Expedia will refund the entire amount charged.

Step 16: Enjoy!!!

this deal is dead…..was dead at 2pm central time.

Dan/Ctownbochur

@expedia:
I just tried it right now, still works.

Just keep on hitting “Apply and Reprice” and it will take it!

FT Addict

A little slow on the uptake, eh Dan?!? 😀 I was surprised to not see this here earlier. I guess I should have dropped you a line… I’ve made 7 bookings, various mileage runs and fun trips.

Anonymous

is this also for the other places or just las??

Dan/Ctownbochur

@FT Addict:
As a sabbath-observing jew I actually just found out about it when I was able to go back online after sundown and went onto the dansdeals forums!
Over there an LA based forum member had posted about the deal after sundown friday for us east-coasters, but before sundown friday for the west-coasters.

But it still seems to work just fine as long as you click the apply button a few times!

@Anonymous:
Did you read the 2nd line of the post?

FT Addict

@Dan: Gotcha, well I can certainly respect that. I’m a follower of Jesus and my whole life revolves around that and I work hard to never do anything to violate God’s commands.

I hope you get some referrals out of this. I probably should have put out a how-to and blog post myself, but I was so focused on booking flights…

wanna go to vegas

do u know wat dates are good for the nyc to veghas?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@FT Addict:
I was surprised that noone has made an easy step-by-step to this deal, so that’s what I did.

@wanna go to vegas:
It will take $300 off for flights through 12/31.

Try dates out and let us know what you find!

steve

can u just use this if u want a free night in a hotel in ny . as book a flight to ny and a night in manhattan and not use the flight part?

fg

It just saves 300$ from the whole package.

leeor

is this also for the other places or just las vegas??

Dan/Ctownbochur

@steve:
Seems that way.

@fg:
Correct. And as long as you find a sub-$300 package it will be free.

@leeor:
Gotta read before you write…

Ryan

Below is the link to full rules on the promotion. Great find Dan!

http://www.expedia.ca/daily/voucher/save300.html

fg

Is it supposed to be free?

chuchem

how can i get free ticket to cun for chanuka?

Steve

Does this work from Baltimore (BWI) to cancun or vegas or does the airport you leave from need to be jfk?

Freddie

@Dan/Ctownbochur: Like how many times?

Chana

Why do you need to select that you only need a hotel for part of the time? Dont I need a place to stay the whole time while I am there, can someone explain please?

Bentzi

How should i do it in case i’m flaying with my wife and baby?
I don’t need 3 rooms…. can i do just a flight?

Moito Obrigado, Dan
Bentzi

daniela

Can u leave from anywhere? to one of those destinations

trying

It is fair to say that this deal is dead. been pushing apply and re-price bout 100+ times

daniel

booked. Last time (bahamas) I made money on the deal, so I assume it’ll work.

Steven

has anyone gotten a flight package to cancun from nyc for under $300? thanks!

FT Addict

@fg: If you keep it below $300CAD, it is.

@chuchem: That will be difficult because the hotels are so much more expensive to Cancun. I haven’t been able to find free tickets to Cancun. What makes the Las Vegas and NYC deals so nice is that you have cheap, cheap hotels and hostels at just $20/night so you don’t use up much of your $300 in the package and can use the $300 for airfare and tickets to city events, etc.

@Steve, daniela: You can fly from anywhere (there are folks coming from Europe, for instance) to NYC, Las Vegas, or Cancun. The destination is all that matters.

@Chana: The key is to purchase your trip in multiple transactions (using a different CC and email each time). The first time, get your flight and the cheapest hotel for a single night. The second time, do the cheapest flight you can find (BOS-NYC or LAX-LAS) and get the nicest hotel you can find that’s within your budget. If you’re really ambitious, the third time around you can get Broadway tickets, helicopter tours, etc.

@Bentzi: You don’t need to use the hotels. Many of us don’t want to stay at the cheap flea-bitten hostels in NYC anyway. The key to this is finding cheap, throwaway flights and hotels as I said to Chana.

ff

Dan, if I book the free Las Vegas trip will I get miles even if I don’t actually go on the trip.?

cshia

hi dan i want to go with my wifr to Cancun how do i do it? 4 1 person it comes out cheapest over $400 so how do i do it and should come out fre? can i doo 2 bookings for tickets and then take hotel with sp points?

Shira

Just booked a trip to Las Vegas for me and my husband. Took a bunch of clicks but it worked. Thanks!!!!

Levi

I think they caught on.

There a new priced fixed to eveything at $100 more

FT Addict

@ff: No.

Josh

“Any portion of the package which is cancelled will make the coupon null and void and the full amount of the package will be charged to the credit card”
does that mean if i dont check into the crap hotel in Vegas I will be charged full for the flight??!

FT Addict

@Josh: No. That’s only if you cancel, not if you no-show. (However, even if you cancel, Expedia is 95% sure not to find out about it. But don’t cancel, because there’s no benefit. Just no-show.)

Manu

Just booked to NYC. Took forever, but it worked. Thanks, Dan!

rehbchguy

I don’t see any specification in Dan’s announcement that this is only for travel originating in Canada.

The rules of the voucher (read here: http://www.expedia.ca/daily/voucher/save300.html) clearly state that travel must originate in Canada. Therefore, I would not count on Expedia refunding any money for travel originating outside of Canada.

anon

i thoguht its a 400 coupon?

cshia

can find place to put in i have voucher !!!!!!! i looked over and over now by last step where i put in cc info

cshia

hi dan

im its going straight to the point where i have to put in my cc info and can put in a voucher!!!!!!!!!!
please help me!!

bee

what would be the cheapest flight into nyc, this way i can get the best hotel?

miller

Are these only for one way flights?

David

Dan,

It does saw in the rules that travel must start in Canada. Would Expedia allow the voucher discount & the ability to book the fare knowing trips are leaving from JFK for example to Las Vegas & not a canadien city? Also, it says one voucher per person, does that mean in total or per transaction?

Avi

Uhhmm any1 can verify what rehbchguy is saying?

Daniel

If I don’t take the departing flight can I still take the return flight?

dan2

Got 1 ticket before prices went up. Guess they caught on. Thank you Dan!

Dini

Is anyone else having an issue with the price suddenly increasing by $100+ when you click on the continue with booking button?

daniela

whats with the rules stating u need to leave from cananda? is that true?

Gabe

Can I use my delta miles if my total is more than 300 so that i can get it down to 300 and then get it for free?

juda

hi dan good voch i tryed like 60-70 times from nyc to fll and it dosent seem to be working please advice

FT Addict

@Gabe: No.

shabster

What does this mean?

“Coupon is non-refundable, non-transferable and only available for transactions/travel originating in Canada.”

I was able to get the voucher on a booking NYC>LAS, but have no intention of going to LAS!
I have the reverse question of most of the posters here – is there any decent hotel in NYC that I can use without the flight portion?

Thanks.

Just booked two round trip tickets from montreal to NY.

Thanks.

Manu

Juda:
You need TO book to NYC, Vegas, Cancun, or Riviera Maya.

daniela

the code is save300?

brian

I am trying to do it from Baltimore to Miami, and it gives me tons of different messages,
“This purchase does not meet the region requirements to be eligible for this voucher. For more information please refer to the voucher rules.”
or
“The voucher code you entered is not valid. Please check the code and enter it again or select I don’t have a voucher to continue.”
or

Thoughts on whats wrong? I am staying in a hotel for 1 day, and flying down for a week, and coming back dec 30th…

steve

Just got two tickets to Vegas for free! Thanks Dan!!

steve

Maybe it worked for me cause I live in Canada

yankal

did it!

i went over by 8 dollars Canadian. do you think that fact that i was charged a bit, will jeopardize the refund in any way????!!

Mordechai

im trying to nyc to den for one day and its not working i clicked like twenty times any advice?

Manu

Brian:
You need to book TO Vegas, Cancun, Riviera Maya or New York

David K

Morderchai,

You must be going to one of 4 destination cities. Departure does not matter.

Mordechai

now i tryed fll to lga and it wont work

debby

Hey I have booked for my husband and now trying to do for myself and its saying that this voucher has already been used. So i whipped out the 2nd laptop and logged in with a different email account and it still gives me the same message! help! Hubby is going to vegas alone!!!

Abe Da'Babe

Totally Worked from FLL to LGA. BUT, the voucher is for flights originated in Canada, I fear that they will not give back the $300 voucher. Please confirm that we refund the trip if they do not give us the voucher???

Avi

CHMW

Dan HELP!! It looked like it was going through and somehow it ended up charging my card! what can I do?

Daniel T

@debby:
I booked for my wife and myself under two different cc’s and it worked fine. You probably just need to do it on a separate cc.

Freddie

@AhPoshiterYid: BOS is cheaper

noochh

bos- nyc is cheap

steve

booked 2 tix from cle to vegas and booked 2 more from la to lv in order to get 2 nights in the bellagio

eli

expedia charges you the full price then refunds you. they might not refund you the $300 since its not Canada booking?

Shayna

To NYC meaning if expedia includes newark as an airport it will work?? Also, how many times do i need to click it???

lou

they say the coupon is no longer valid when i click “non canadaian billing address”…. how do i get around this?

crazy

What’s pshat????????vegas will be infested with jews!!!

Daniel T

For anyone afraid of being charged fully in the long run, book the tickets on a JetBlue flight. My total cost was not CAD308.41-CAD300.00=C8.41, rather straight up CAD8.41. JetBlue only charges the difference between the voucher and the package price, not the actual package price and then processing a refund of CAD300.00, so the most you stand to lose is very little, or nothing at all.

debby

I just booked nyc to vegas. its still up and running!!

Moshe d

I think its the end of the line…. it aint working anymore, no matter how many times i press refresh…. just missed it 🙁

Shayna

For step #8, I don’t see a $12.20 charge. Is that why mine isn’t working?

dav

just got 2 flights from nyc to lv.

Chana

I just booked a random flight and hotel but added a spa gift certificate that I plan on using!!! Thanks!

mancunian

just ran into this – computer going really slow
can a car be included if it comes out less than $300?
so i can book 30 times bos-nyc and get a car for a month?

FYI at 11:30pm EST it just worked for me. I just want a hotel in Manhattan this week..but as the deal only seems to work on packages (not hotel alone), I booked a flight from Boston to NYC, that is a pretty inexpensive route. I had to click the re-price button 5-6 times…I did a double take when the price went to zero!

STILL ALIVE!!!!!!!!
GUCCI MANE WASTED!!!!!

Mendy

Dan, How do you know forsure that they will refund you the money within 3 days?

c!

anyone think this will still be around tmrw morning? I need to check with my boss to see if I can get off and its not free for me so I dont want to book unless I know I can go

all originating cities?

Are you sure it works from any originating city?

BSW

I booked in Ritz Battery Park NYC. Thanks Dan! One question; I booked for 1 passenger, will they charge me extra at the hotel for staying there with my wife, or are they just charging me for the room?

yossi

which hotel did you book stillup ?

dov

it says transaction/travel originating in canada. hopefully that means the tranaction being booked on expedia.ca (therefore transaction originating in canada) is enough…

StillUp

@yossi Hilton Garden Inn

Does anyone have experience regarding the various tourist stuff available for purchase. I saw that Chana got herself a spa package…can anyone say if these tour vouchers are dated according to the travel? Or it is just buying a general pass to be used whenever?

yossi

just booked the roosevelt

JR

Just used it twice, booked two tix to NYC from LAX.

Have to use two separate cards for it to go through.

good luck!
thanks so much..

dan you really should remove this post like an idiot i booked it and then read the rules most people here arent leaving out of canada and therefore are not going to get refunded this is a huge problem and alot of people our going to lose there money

Hocker

@DanielT: How do you know that JetBlue only charges you the price difference between the voucher and your total?

meir

anyone not leaving out of canada is going to lose there money the rules specifially say that i would recommend removing this post I already booked and will be screwed thanks alot dan

BS

I booked to LAS just because I need the miles…Thanks!

This is a scam

just booked two tickets to vegas. must use 2 separate cards. keep clicking to reprice. it finally worked after ten clicks for me. 12:25am

shabsi

ARE WE ALL SCREWED? DAN PLEASE ANSWER IM SITTING ON SHPILKES ACCORDING TO MEYER WERE SCREWED FROM JFK TO LAS????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

770

@Meir: Don’t blame Dan. Even in a worst case scenario- you have your confirmation email confirming the price as zero and you would dispute the charge with c.c company. (after the trip of course….!)

Johnathan

OK so the total came out to $0, but then it took $233 off of my credit card. Will it credit me back due to the voucher?

steve

@meir: this isnt refundable if it doesnt work?

R2

I did not see anything in the rules about being a Canadian to book a trip but I did see that Expedia reserves the right to change the price in case of a price mistake. So in the end you might get screwed unless they do not catch on.

shloimy

whats the deal is this thing gonna pan thru or not in the last few hours i booked over 50 people!!! ifthese “save300” dont come thru boy are we all screwed!!!:) dan we need ur expertise at this moment plz fix this if its a problem..i believe in u pal…..plz pull thru!!!!!!! 🙂

amir

its craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy!

will we get refunded!?

im not going from canada help i wana do this help

daniel

I think it will be fine. If it went through on the computer, I think it will be ok.

eli

just did bos to ny (im missing both flights, lol) just to book a 4 star hotel in manhattan for one night for FREE.

i hope i dont end up getting messed over…

David

Clearly says in their fine print that transaction/travel from Canada, but does that mean purchasing on their website counts as the transaction originating? Also, Expedia changed their flight terms earlier day as there were no specifications when deal went live at 3 EST yesterday.

Sangam

Booked from YYZ to EWR with stay in manhattan for $22.54

Can someone please help me

I booked a flight and when I book another it says please see the rules for this voucher.
I did the exact same thing!!!

@eli: screw you for making us doubtful! booked anyway

bestwatchman

just booked number 2! sorry but meir is a idiot! worst case scenario is going through the cc company, otherwise it will either work or expedia will refund it

Daniel T

@Hocker:
It says how much I was charged on the payment history page of my itinerary. It says C8.41, not C308.41. I’ve also seen this being reported on other forums.

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Anonymous:
Did you read step 15? This is normal.

Hocker

For all those who booked tickets and are only using the hotel stay – the terms clearly state: “Any portion of the package which is cancelled will make the coupon null and void and the full amount of the package will be charged to the credit card.”

So if you booked a NYC hotel but do not show up on the Boston-NYC JetBlue flight, you are essentially canceling part of the package, and you may get charged the $300…..

AhPoshiterYid

@Sangam:
Hey, what dates did u do? Also, is it a nice hotel?

dr

Hi
I have a few questions:
1) How can we confirm that we will get the refund?
2) Did anybody get refunded yet?
3) What if I am not flying through Canada?
4) Has anything like this happened before, its quite fishy
Good luck everybody and i really hope that whoever bought a ticket will be refunded

Metoo

@Eli I’m in the same boat. I assume you booked a jet blue flight? As my total expedia charge was under 300 and therefor zero dollars, my chase bank is still not showing any charges…an hour later (chase online usually posts charges in realtime in my experience). Are you aware if any charge was yet processed on wgichever card you used?I’m sitting on pins and needles

7770

We’ll hear from Dan when he has run out of credit cards to book all the “trips”!
I hope we get a gr8 “trip report”!!!

anon

Dan thanx for this amazing deal!! i booked for two different nights in two different hotels in nyc – i do not plan to fly, just use the hotel part. how would i go about it? just no show to flight? will that effect the hotel – can they bill me later for that?

Guys, it looks like the jetblue rumor has panned out. I booked two separate trips, one for 94 dollars on my chase visa and one for 0 on my citicard, and both are with jetblue. Guess what shows on my CC: 94 and 0 😀

Also, for all the people freaking out and bugging Dan: Everyone please relax! Worse comes to worse this gets disputed with your credit card, as your itinerary shows the supposedly correct charge. Worse comes to worse they cancel the trip; they are not going to charge you beyond what you authorized, and if they do then the next big thread here will be us all putting together a class action law suit! 😀

770

Sample trip report:
Expedia Booking1 (cle-nyc) got free flights to N.Y: used expiring evips 4 upgrade in new AAEagle biz class.
Booking2 (bos-nyc) free 5* hotel.
Booking3 (phl-nyc) free broadway tkts.
Booking4 (acy-nyc) free helicopter tour
And don’t get me started on the Vegas possibilities…!!!
Am I close Dan?!?!

StillUp

I’m not worried about the concern of not originating from Canada…but for those of us who haphazardly booked packages solely for the hotel stays, intending to ditch the flights: Perhaps it’s better to just cancel the package? As Hocker pointed out, the terms are pretty clear and I’m not sure that will be as simple to dispute. Thoughts?

770

@Hocker: a “no show” is not a cancellation. Change dates 4 bdway show and make sure hotel is only 1night mid-week.
The way to really take advantage(besides using the expedia “add on’s” like tours & tkts) is to use it to fly ANYWHERE in the USA via nyc or las. Simply book multiple trips on 2 carriers so if u miss a leg it won’t qualify as a “no-show”-therefore canceling whole trip (the F.T summary on this point about there being collaboration between competing airlines is factually incorrect).
Those chasing AA exp can get to rdu from nyc and mileage-run until Dec 31st to las with deqm!

oh no

I booked a flight for my husband, myself and 1 of my children. By the time I started booking one of my other children the price was sold out 🙁

Churner

Everyone should calm down i booked dtw-lga (not originating in canada) and my refund was alreay sent to amex (obviously didnt post yet). Open the confirmation email and click on view itineray then click on view payment details and you should see the airline charge and the expedia refund. Just be patient till they post but dont panic because it means expedia already processed the refund. ENJOY YOUR TRIP

Thanks Dan, Done bos to nyc ,ritz. Also did some nordstrom groupons. With the starwood amex all together.

gdaymatehowyagoing

Expedia.ca are going out of business they want to make as much money as possible before closing – good luck

buddy

shimon

2) where are you finding hotel stays in new york for free or $22??? (to a decent hotel)
3) dan, how did u find the bellagio for free? any date i checked it was at least a few hundred dollars

jerry

I just spoke to customer service and they said that they used the maximum code offers and now it is DEAD

mendel

i type in all the info and everything works but then last step confrim flight and all it says voucher not valid all ready used what do i do ?????

Hannah

I got a NYC hotel – BOS-NYC-(not flying) But just a 2 star one for $22. I think the deal is finally dead. How did you guys get such good hotels?

my friends

which dates did you find the Ritz for free?

moe

hotel in nyc still not dead for me. just did 30 sec ago

shmuel

Booked 2 tickets to vegas. Each one of us booked one night in the hotel. Expedia shows the amount was refunded. Nice deal Dan.

Hannah

I mean not 22, $34

Ez Does

Can anyone please confirm if it’s really dead?

I’m trying again and agin for such a long time to hit the apply & re-price button but it still gives the silly message that the coupon is not valid.

Please help!!!

mancunian

ritz is 15-35$ week of dec 19
debating if i should waste $15

yada

Eh tried it. Hopefully I don’t get charged the $300.

You have proof that it was 0$ so hopefully cc will be accomodating if Expedia isn’t.

Hannah

I can’t get it to work, then again, I already booked.

Hannah

@shmuel:
Which hotel??

moose

just got free tickets…! thanks dan

Hannah

@eli:
How did you get 4*???

Simcha

Just booked 2 separate packages to Vegas Dec 21st… Hope that (even after reading step 15) I get refunded. Will see everyone there.. Thanks DAN

ceejay

how many did u click in order to get to go thru?

SDR

Doesn’t seem to work any more

tzvi

whos up for a minyan in vegas?

bg

@eli: from rules of promotion… Any portion of the package which is cancelled will make the coupon null and void and the full amount of the package will be charged to the credit card.

i dont know if missing flight is considered canceling.

shimon

yes it still works – figured out how to do the bellagio
this is awesome, it better work
any idea how to book broadway shows in vegas or nyc?

Hannah

ITS NOT DEAD!

buddy

@shimon: how do you pick a specififc hotel

i checked the prices and they are all around 600 CAD whats the deal with that?

ceejay

if anyone will book me a mia to nyc will pay $20 nyc@cqcare.com

shimon

@buddy – you book one night at a time, from lax to vegas, and get 300 off each booking, and get the bellagio for 4 nights for a few cents 🙂

Josh

It might be dead…
It’s not “appyling” and “repricing”

Ez Does

After about 1000 times clicking it still comes up the same message:

The voucher code you entered is not valid. Please check the code and enter it again or select I don’t have a voucher to continue.

If anyone still had it working, please explain exactly how you made it work.
Thanks

Anonymous

everytime i try to check out it says doesnt work – even after i apply it

Josh

It worked for me – I had a bill for $0.00 … then I had to click “non-US address” and it hasn’t worked since.

Josh

@Josh: er, non Canada address

Not working

Umm.. not working here either. Booked one for myself one hour ago, now second one for a friend isnt working when trying to enter the code… code dead??

chickgirl

Hannah

to do with the I.P. address, once it works for you once, then i dont think it wil work again from the same I.P. address

Simcha

@Josh: same here at first but then kept hitting retry and one time it went thru…

Anonymous

@ari: @ari: I booked 2 different tickets from the same computer, same IP and same browser, so that’s not a problem.

Yossi

I got Nyc-Las, staying @ MGM for $0, 2 tickets. I tried to do it again for free attractions and it seems to be dead. We will be enjoying it immensely anyway. Thanks dan the man

******************IT’S OFFICIALLY DEAD***************

Daddy

Just got NYC to las dec 22-27

Simon

Deal is to good to be true.. I am expecting an apology letter from expedia one of these days.

2) No showing could be a problem i.e. considered a cancellation.

3) It does say that travel needs to originate for Canada.

There is no way expedia will be paying out all these $300 coupons when it clearly states it needs to originate out of Canada.
(unless they got some major stimulus from Obama that we don’t know about!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Simon:
If they cancel they cancel, what can be done?
They’re not going to be able to charge money and not give a refund, as they sent out email confirmations with $0 prices.
Besides they’ll never win a credit card dispute against email conformations like that.
And people are reporting already seeing the expedia refunds coming through.

Anyway they honored those free trips to the Bahamas earlier this year and hundreds of people used that vacation deal for free:

Oh Cr**

I feel bad for all of those who only booked half a vacation 🙁

dizzles

Oh Cr**

Kaddish will be recited for the deal by all those who were not able to book the vegasKiddush2010.

miri

I booked a vaca on chanukah for 97 cents!!! however im stuck now because i told my husband to book his and he by mistake forgot to apply code and was charged 300.97 cents! not sure if it can be refunded and for sure cant use voucher anymore!! anyone going to be there chanukah? not into traveling myself!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Yakov L:
I haven’t been able to get it since my last uupdate.
What exactly are you doing to get it to work?

@miri:
Are you sure he forgot to apply the code? Does his email conformation have the discount in it because it is normal to be charged and then refunded the $300.

Also you should be able to call expedia to refund any ticket within 24 hours.

yoel

Dan i cant get it for my wife, would i cancel my booking by expedia or just no show?

Anonymous

Why should the credit card company reimburse you for not following the terms and conditions. All of you are stupid for trying something under the assumption that if I break the rules its okay because my CC company will pay me back.

SN

Found this post by wdchang on flyertalk that has steps to protect you if expedia.ca tries to renege.
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/mileage-run-discussion/1150182-fare-gone-expedia-ca-300-coupon-packages-new-terms-107.html
Hope that can help.

miri

YES IM SURE HE FORGOT! mine said 97 cents and his said 300.97! he forgot! i spoke to expedia and they said that they were having system errors- i told them we tried and the coupon wouldnt go through. they said they would give 100 towards our expedia account for another trip, but i didnt want that. they said they will try to refund it by calling airlines but they couldnt successfully do that. i need to call back later when the airlines are open in vancouver so they can help me. hopefully they can refund it! if not they said they will refund hotel and give me a credit voucher for delta for $240 🙁

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Anonymous:
Yes, we’re stupid for trying for a free trip when the confirmation email clearly says $0.

@miri:
You can also try calling Delta to refund within 24 hours.

TS

so its officially dead????

Hannah

@eli:
Why refund???

Hannah

@anon:
Are you staying at the hotels, or missing the flights? I booked a hotel to stay the night and skipping the flight, I still see my itinerary.

Rina

So do we have to actually check in to the hotel in order for the ticket not to be canceled??

miri

how did you get refunded eli?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@miri:
Nicely done!
Enjoy!

asad

hi was wondering if i need to change the dates on my ticket can i call the airline directly in this case delta. and have them change the dates without having to wait on hold for 2 hours with expedia its within 24 of booking if that makes a difference

SN

@asad
My experience has been that you will not be able to make changes to flights through the airline directly since your ticket was purchased through a second party. You’ll have to make changes through expedia who will charge you a change fee in addition to any change fee the airline charges and any difference in price of the new ticket. You could try calling and arguing but I’ve been there before and have been unsuccessful. Good luck!

asad

update you cannot there is a 150 dollar change fee they also would not let me cancel since i made the res thru expedia

Me of course

I hope i dont actually have 2 pay anything at the end of the day

Rivka

is this deal still going on?! im trying for hours to press the reapply button, nothings is happening

Bill

Had same issue. Entered code and got ‘Please be aware The voucher code you entered is not valid. Please check the code and enter it again or select I don’t have a voucher to continue.’. Must be fixed…?!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Rivka:

@Chaim:
Do you guys read the post updates?

@hennie:
I can’t imagine that it would be possible to transfer the flight to someone else.

Dan/Ctownbochur

Anyone else going to be in Vegas from tomorrow through Wednesday?

I also have extra hotel rooms (not fancy rooms) for then as well.

inyu

At first i had the transaction posted on my account, then it was refunded. Now it shows that it is pending once again. Why is this?

Thanks DAN for this deal! I got Vegas and Miami….

I did want to point out if trying to check your itinerary from expedia.com, you may get message “itinerary deleted.” I had to check from expedia.ca in order to see it.

On another note, what do you think will happen if I call them now asking to change one of the parts of my flight to another day?

yankal

have 264 pending from my airline. no refund pending. is this good?

Moe

Im going sunday through tuesday.
who else will be there?

Not working

I will be there Sunday through Monday… now I just need a really cheap flight for my buddy! Anyone know of sites with really cheap flights to vegas for 11/28-11/29?

Hey Dan, is there a way to put in your JetBlue number on the itinerary page once its confirmed, or does JetBlue not have a thing on expedia?
