SIZZLING HOT!!! HURRY!!! PRICE MISTAKE!!! AIRFARE TO THE BAHAMAS AND 4 NIGHTS HOTEL FOR ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!!!

This deal was originally posted on 03/02:
Update 9, 03/04 at noon: THIS DEAL IS NOW OFFICIALLY DEAD!
If I had a buck for each person who emailed me that is was dead when they couldn’t get it to work I’d be able to retire 😉

Hundreds of you bought tickets and a number of people went to the Bahamas yesterday or are going today so let’s hear about it! Uri commented below that he even got upgraded to another hotel! As this posts falls off this page it will be great if people could discuss their trips on the Dansdeals Forums in this Bahamas trip reports thread! There’s also a seperate thread on the Forums started by “APoshiterYid” to post your travel dates in order to coordinate minyanim, so check it out!



Update 8, 03/03 at 2:30pm: There are now dates for NYC-Freeport, Bahamas for as low as $61.64 including nonstop airfare and 4 days of lodging! There are also still plenty of dates for free trips from Fort Lauderdale. I’m sure there are other great deals to be had from other cities and dates as well. See update 6 below for how to stay in a better hotel.

Sample dates:
03/04-03/08: FLL-FPO $0. NYC-FPO, $110
03/07-03/11: FLL-FPO: $70, NYC-FPO, $117
03/10-03/14: FLL-FPO $0.
03/14-03/18: FLL-FPO $0. NYC-FPO, $157
04/14-04/18: FLL-FPO $0. NYC-FPO, $62
04/18-04/22: FLL-FPO $0. NYC-FPO, $103
04/25-04/29: FLL-FPO $0. NYC-FPO, $103
04/28-05/02: FLL-FPO $54. NYC-FPO, $104

Update 7: Please post about your trip experience in the Bahamas over at the Dansdeals Forums in this thread!

Originally posted on 03/02:

Update 6: Still alive as of 6:40pm. Commenter “Excited” notes a great strategy for a small family. He booked one ticket for a much nicer hotel room for an extra $78 over the 4 nights and the rest of the family’s tickets at the cheapest hotel available. They’ll all stay in the one room at the nicer hotel and won’t even have to bother checking for the additional rooms at the cheaper hotel! He also notes how to change the default flight should you want a different flight option. Great tips!

Update 5: Still alive as of 3:00pm. The coupon is valid once per Expedia account, so just create a new account for multiple tickets.

Update 4-Still alive and well as of 2:15pm. There are still free tickets/hotels from Florida airports and tickets/hotels for about $100-$150 from cities like NYC or Chicago. You can even go this week from Chicago as well for just $120.

Update 3: See the comments for discussion on cheap travel dates from other cities.
For Fort Lauderdale-Freeport you can still go tomorrow or the day after, from 03/03-03/07 or 03/04-03/08 for free!
For NYC-Freeport you can go tomorrow or the day after for just $110 with taxes for airfare and hotel!

Update 2: The $400 coupon also works to NAS (Nassau, Bahamas) but the total for NAS will be more than FPO.

Update: To clarify, the deal works for $0 with all taxes as I explain below. The price may be more for different dates or different cities.

The Island Palm Resort isnt coming up for $399

benjy

this didnt work for me. i followed the directions for this. i picked Sun May-30 to Thu Jun-3
and my total price was 247.32 after the discount.

anyone else had success?

Zoli

For NY to the bahamas it prices out to $614 so ends up being $215 for the 4 day trip

Chani

I also got a $727 price before coupon, not a $399…
So, I guess they discovered the mistake and changed it.

Thanks anyway !

pnina

did not work from pittsburgh 12/10-12/16

Dan/Ctownbochur

The deal still works, did you guys try the sample deal above before calling it dead?

The prices for different cities and dates will vary of course.

Be flexible and keep on trying different dates and nearby airports to get the cheapest price.

Dan/Ctownbochur

For example, for someone looking to escape NYC right away, try leaving tomorrow!
NYC-FPO for 03/03-03/07 is $516-$400=$116.
Not bad for a quick escape from the snow!

mendy

what type of place is it? is it some hole in the wall hotel/motel?

yaakov

there is still tax?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@yaakov:
No, this is including all taxes.

Anonymous

chaya

the bahamas 399 resort is not even showing up….?

Berel

I cant seem to find any deals originating from LAX, any help?

Craven_M

Dan/Ctownbochur

ITS NOT DEAD.
Just tried it again right now as I laid out in my instructions and it works fine.

Sheva

If two people are going together, they have to book two sep. rooms? The coupon still works for me..

Efrem

did not work for me either

melech bialo

from cle it comes up @ 599.12
do i still get 4oo off?

Art

With Dan’s configuration it’s still on! other dates and other citie’s might cost more!

chani

can you post a date that works from any airport close to NY
thanks

ralph

ok i figured it out, if u book from fll its 399 so its free but anywhere else its more!

4 Nights in the Bahamas, Hotel and Air, From $0 (Yes, That’s Zero) - View from the Wing

[…] Dan’s Deals breaks it down with a sample from Ft. Lauderdale to Freeport, Bahamas (Nassau will work, too, but this uses […]

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Sheva:
Correct, 2 people will automatically have 2 rooms with this deal.

@melech bialo:
You get $400 off of the listed price, so $599-$400=$199.

@chani:
Which month do you want to go?

@ralph:
Yes, but it can still be a bargain from other cities, like $100 from NYC.

Sheva

I’m looking from FLL but I dont see the 399. What dates are you checking?

mr

I just looked at reviews for this hotel. It is not in tourist area and you will need transportation to beach etc. Simple hotel with courteous staff.

ben

great find thanks but none work from me. sad

Mark

quick, any other cites pricing out free?

chani

preferably august or october
thanks
i tried tons of different dates, and several airports..

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Sheva:
They’re in the post.

@Mark:
Other Florida cities should be close to free.
And you can find $100 deals for most cities along the east coast if you have flexible dates.

Jo

Anything for the first week in June from NY?

anon

is it near the chabad?

deal_king

Dead. Now $467 for same details you mentioned. I got $399 five minutes ago, but when i refreshed it went up to $467.

anon

Dan/Ctownbochur

@anon:
I don’t think there is Chabad on the Bahamas.

@sarah:
Congrats!

@JOSEPH:
Make sure you’re booking for at least 4 nights and not during blackout dates.

Jo

@mendel: It must be at least 4 nights.

Dan/Ctownbochur

More sample free ticket dates FLL-FPO:
03/03-03/07
03/04-03/08

I’m sure there are plenty of other free dates as well.

Carol

What if we want to take the kids with us? do we need a different booking per kid? can we even do that? and we’ll be get 7 rooms?

danny

@sarah: Sweet. Enjoy! What dates did you use?

Levi F

You could also use this code for Nassau, and Nassau is so much nicer and you get $400 off.

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Carol:
Yup, you’ll need to make 7 bookings, it’s not a problem making a booking for them separately…I do it all the time (it’s generally cheaper to buy fewer tickets at a time) just list them as adults and noone will care.

And you’ll have 7 rooms to stretch out in!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Levi F:
It is nicer, but it’s more $$$.
Did you find any good dates for Nassau?

Mendel

What will happen if I book for any random date and then change the dates?

pnina

pretty much all aug. from Fll to FPO is $74pp after discount, I wish we could go 🙁

sol

nyc for oct/nov pricing out to about 150 after discount

AA

any successful days from nyc to nassau? it’s more than twice the price!

Jeff

We should all go the same time and have a DansDeals convention in the Bahamas and officially crown him King!!!!

chani

its saying i used the code already…

Anonymous

We need this deal for the ATLANTIS!!!!!!

danFan

DONE AND DONE!!!
thanks dan on behalf of me and my wife!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Mendel:
I wouldn’t recommend that.

@pnina:
Yup, very cheap stuff from Florida.

@danFan:
Great! What cities/dates?

rover

got it from nyc for 185 pp (not amazing but good enough for me) thanks!

Chani

I was another Chani trying for June 28 – July 2…
But my airport is not NY, so prob more money…
I will try Cleveland, though…. Thanks !!

zaly

thanks dan!
anyone find any good dates from ny?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@rover:
So are you going? What dates?

@Chani:
You can also try Akron, Columbus, and Pittsburgh as alternates to CLE.

Jo

It only takes $300 off for me. Anyone else have that issue?

AA

is everyone booking going to the resort that is far from the beach or are you all finding something better? No luck over here finding something close to the beach for less than 250 with the deal…btw Thanks Dan!

jack

@Jo: use BAH400 as opposed to BAH300

levi

i try booking for 4 nights this message
Please be aware “This purchase does not meet the specific date restrictions of the selected coupon. For more information, please refer to the coupon rules.”?

juniorbochur

just booked 16 tickets for a bunch of friends to go tomorrow!!!! from fll. mad party with 16 rooms at the hotel.

Josh

Booked 2 for 3/14-3/18 170.48 each (from JFK)

Rivka

So I booked for one person, can I bring another to the hotel if I book just a flight? Thanks

David

So if we are booking for two, we get 2 room reservations even though we only end up using one room?

HugefanofDan

For people flying to Miami from N.Y for Pesach:
Instead of paying the $500 p.p round trip, (yes! that’s how much the flights are now for ideal dates) most of the Expedia Bahamas flights are with a stopover in Miami with Delta or AA.
You can for sure get off in MIA and ignore the second leg to FPO.
I am wondering Dan, if you can travel back from MIA to NYC without boarding at FPO…?!

levi

i trying to book mar 21 to mar 25
and its giving me that message?

ShmuliT

@levi: 4 nights is equal to 5 days not 4. Ie: 1st to 5th =4 nights.

Sam

Booked JFK to Bahamas with my wife, $300 for the works!
THANKS DAN THE MAN!!!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@HugefanofDan:
1-Your bags will go onto FPO.
2-When you miss your MIA-FPO leg the entire ticket will be cancelled.

@levi:
Read the post, those are blackout dates!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@juniorbochur:
@Josh:
@Sam:
Enjoy guys, your welcome!

jack

a few people on the reviews of hotel mention a tax of 15 pp per night, also doesnt sound so great. check reviews of hotel before booking, it might be worth it to spend a little bit and go somewhere nice.

levi

what date is blackout dates?

Anonymous

nuu. we arranging a minyan??

jack

any kosher food in freeport?

Josh

Dan, thanks so much!! can you post a sample itinerary, kosher food/best way to and from the airport ect…?

Debbie

Can i book for multiple dates for the same name?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@levi:
Dont be lazy, read the post.

@Anonymous:
Lol, whose bringing the torah?

@Josh:
I was in FPO as a small child but I haven’t been back to the Caribbean since. Maybe some others can chime in.

Just bring some cereal, some bread for sandwiches, and make a few meals and freeze them. Bring along a $10 burner and you’ll be good to go.

@Debbie:
Sure.

Shul

GREAT DEAL, but I want to upgrade… so hard to get away, that if I’m going to do it may as well go all out. Any suggestions, nicer hotels, or closer to the action…

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Shul:
Fly to Nassau if you want an upgraded experience and better hotels. It will cost more, but still a great deal with the $400 coupon.

abc

If only you ever found such a deal to Florida, or somewhere with a shul! lol

yossi

I am going with my wife and two kids. what will i do with four rooms???????

Dan/Ctownbochur

@yossi:
You can try to get connecting rooms if they have any or just throw them away.
Maybe you can even negotiate with the hotel to not use the room?
But it’s best not to call them or expedia until this deal is dead.

Ash

Wow! I tried for June 21st – 25th whichis summer vacation and it came up to 191 after the discount! Pretty cool

Ash

forgot to say that was from lga

AL

IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET A AIRLINE CREDIT IF YOU CANCEL THE TICKET?

Queensdeals

Dan-
I cant get anything to FPO under 587 (before the 400) from NYC?
Anything good still out there?
Cheapest I can find to Nassau is 850.

Not great.

Mendel

Try Bell Channel Inn instead of Island Palm Resort. It’s not much more expensive and according to the reviews it’s much better and in much better location.

Shmuli

Re: Kosher food
Based on all the reviews I’ve read, the hotel does not have refrigerators in the rooms.

disappointed

dead 🙁 The selected dates were not blackout dates (4/7-4/11 fll to fpo) received this message:
This purchase does not meet the specific date restrictions of the selected coupon. For more information, please refer to the coupon rules.

BAH300 did not work either…

JEff

Has anyone tried this deal with nicer hotels? This place really does look pretty low class!

rochel

it worked but i got the last one for the dates april 25- april 29! it was only 170!!
thank you!!!!

disappointed

they changed the blackout dates to 4/10

ceejay

@disappointed “but is not valid between 03/19-04/10.”

Do you think they will cancel flights?

ceejay

Is there any to get just the flights

Aaron

Do you know if the cost is less then 400 will you get credited to your card the difference?

Ari

I just tried pricing 1 person to go to bahamas Aug 23-27. The discount was $400 @ a total of $323.

ceejay

whats the cheapest people found from ny?

New York (LGA) to Miami (MIA) 06/08/10

Freeport (FPO) to Miami (MIA) 06/14/10
Miami (MIA) to New York (LGA) 06/14/10

Booked with a friend, we are going for 6 days, but he booked hotel for only first 4 days, and I did last 4 days, to save a bit more money! Came out to 191 pp! Thnx Dan!!! 🙂

excited

There is another hotel called Island Seas… for me from NY it came out to $80 more ($185 – $263). That hotel actually has a living room with a couch (turns into a bed) and coffee table, etc which based on the reviews, i dont think the Palm Island offers.

It also seems low class, and like palm island the reviews are some good, some bad, but the extra living room is very important for a family.

For me and my wife, I booked one itinerary at the Palm resort and one at the Palm Island to save $80!

Let us know what you did!!

excited

also – you can choose different flights to accommodate you. Instead of Delta you can use american, etc.. Leave earlier/later in the day… Look for where it says “Choose different flight for this vacation”

shopper

It works from Canada! not as cheap but you can still get the $400 of, even-though it clearly states good for travel from the US.

What’s the best credit card to use for the $0.00 charge?

itch

just check the reviews on this motel. it seems distgusting. so maybe for free its worth it but for 150$ from ny maybe just use some miles and starpoints and stay somwhere nice.

Ira

Are there any shuls/minyonim in/near that area at all?

Why are we all getting Dan Concierge Services? We didn’t all help you with your website?! 😉

This is not a “mistake” since the coupon code is listed on the Expedia website. It seems to work a bit differently than it says on there though. Good luck!

eli

just book 35 tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!thanx dan!!!

Dan/Ctownbochur

@itch:
So book a nicer hotel if you so desire.

@chesky:
It is a mistake. The $400 coupon is only supposed to work from CA, OR, and WA.

@eli:
Why?

sorry once i tell everyone i will not be able to do it. and they might cancel the credit

yossi

@eli:

i’m sure

Shira

Okay. Why are people booking $150 tickets? Are you planning on reselling them, or just making sure not to spread the wealth? I’m confused.

Shira

@Shira: I mean 150 tickets. . .

Bob

Hey, Dan, I know this might be asking a bit much, but could we make a thread for minyanim or something? I’ll be there with either 2 or 3 guys, from 6/8-6/14 (parchas korach).
Anyone in? 🙂

looks like the price went up to 454 from fll

he probably bought 150 tickets because he figured out how to get credit back.
thinking about the math…400×150=60,000
WOW!!!!
@dan
do you know how to get the credit?

abe

Hey dan thanx a ton, just reserved 2 tickets for wife and i + baby from chicago for end of dec. Got a couple questions,

1. for some reason i am being charged $388.76 on my cc even though on my expedia itinerary it says my total cost is $171.80?

2.do i need a separate ticket for my 5 month old baby?

3. I there any way to change hotel w/t expedia?

Thanks so much!

A.

@abe- if the baby sits on your lap (i.e. doesn’t need a seat), then they don’t need a ticket. If you want to bring the car seat on-board, just ask when you’re checking in if they have extra seats on board. Sometimes they do and you can being the car seat on and strap it in next to you; giving you the option of putting baby down for a few mins. I know most- if not all- airlines tell you to put the car seat in the window seat..I assume for safety reasons so people don’t have to climb over it. Also, airlines will not allow more than one child sitting on a lap per row as there’s not enough oxygen.

Happy flying!

A.

rover

anyone know if i can cancel and how much it will be?

ISACC from Brooklyn NY

Hello ?

HOW HOW HOW

I did it in nicer hotel and it worked — thanks dan

eli

@ISACC from Brooklyn NY: i was joking

a

🙁 Awwww man!!!! It looks like you cant use the coupon more than once with the same credit card! Has anyone else found this to be true? I already booked one for myself, but I havent booked for my other 3 family members yet. 🙁

juniorbochur

my friends already checked in online for their flight tonite!

oh no!

Oh no!!!
Dan, we boooked for 2 people from NYC- our totals on Expedia said 110$, but our credit cards were charged 335$ each……. 🙁 🙁
What does that mean!? Can we get refunded or cancel? 🙁

minyan

@juniorbochur:
You guys having a minyan over Shabbos this week at Palm Island Resort?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@a:
Have you tried using another computer with a different Expedia account?

@oh no!:
Apprently Expedia is charging the airfare amount and then refunding the exact amount within a couple days…strange but that’s what people are reporting.

G F

just booked for $2.43 from mia-fpo 4/11-4/15 we going to have a minyan? 🙂

moshe

I hope this will not end up being a big “Chilul Hashem” if it a price mistake!!

Shul

moshe, this is all over the net. don’t think it will be a big chilul hashem unless all those other people are really dan’s deals followers too.

of course i didn’t think it was a good deal until dan told me it was 🙂

Dan/Ctownbochur

@juniorbochur:
Cool, it will be good to hear a hands on report!

yg

Has anyone been able to find the $62 trip from NYC without going over Shabbos? Or anything from NYC for under $100 without staying for Shabbos? Thnx

Shul

Prices just went up 12 for dates I was looking at…

David

@abe:
When you say end of december, i assume you mean before the 22nd?

joe

Dan! can you find out about the cc charges, when its more than it said it was going to charge??? please? thats crazy!

Leo

I guess if someone was really bored, he can book every week that has free tickets and amass a nice amount of frequent flyer points which I think can be collected under the USAirways mileage program and I imagine can then be redeemed on a number of major carriers.

Just a suggestion for those of you who have the time and can use a little tan.

Enjoy and thanks Dan for the updates on this

Dan/Ctownbochur

@joe:
Like I said, Expedia is charging the airfare amount to go to the carrier and then refunding the exact amount charged shortly thereafter.

matt

Hey Dan, is it possible to find the best dates to Nassau?

elikami

Id’e like to book this for the weekend but I have to be back to work monday. Is there a way to waive the fee for booking an earlier flight on sunday?

Avi

I booked two packages for a total of $0 and I was charged $208 for each package.
When I called Expedia they said that they have already issued a refund; when I called the bank they said that they haven’t received the refund.

a

Just got all 4 of my tickets (I had to use 4 different cards and computers.. lol) !!!! I’m taking my little cousin as a graduation present. Cant wait. Thanks Dan!

hyshai

@avi expedia says it may take a couple of days for processing

Sam

I booked 2 tickets for $114 and when i was trying to do the 3r and 4th ticket the price went up to over $200 already.

Mendel

How can they legally change an unauthorized amount, even with the intent of refunding it? What if the charge results in an overlimit fee because of it?

joe

I don’t think I would book a ticket until someone posts that they actually received a refund…

Talia

If I dont show up, is that a problem?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@joe:
The refunds are processed right away and show up within a couple days. Besides you have a $0 email confirmation, so you really can’t lose a dispute.

@Talia:
What kind of problem? You can even just take the flights and stay at a better hotel if you so desire.

Tried it from california and miami with your sample dates and the island palm resort did not show up…
oh well, it was a nice thought.

BAH400 dead
use BAH300 to save $300

Jeff

@ Shul: How much extra did you have to pay for the Pelican Bay. It is 1000 times nicer then Island Palm!

Hi
Thankx a lot, I came to Freeport yesterday with my wife, the Island Palm hotel was closed untill Monday so they upgraded us to there sister hotel, the Island Seas.
It’s working out great.

@uri:

“URI” .i am arriving this sunday, and i am supposed to be staying at the Island Palm hotel….how did u get there from the airport, and how did u get upgraded?? do you think i should arrange this all b4 i leave??

Shul

Jeff, I paid alot more for the Pelican Bay. But we like nice digs. 1 Package @ cheap Hotel = 114 + 1 Package @ Pelican Bay for $610. Works out to a bit more than $350 a person. Was worth it to us.

Does BAH300 still work? Or are both dead?

Jeff

I agree with with your choice. Better to spend a little more and stay in at a decent place! $350 PP is still very goos for a 5 day vacation.

Jeff

@ Shul: Additionally, for the future if you had starpoints you can stay at the Sheraton in Nassau with cash and points for only 16,000 points plus $240. If you spent $250 on each ticket it would only be slightly higher than you are paying now. This is an option you always have.

Also, for a similar amount I think you could have booked the Wyndam all-inclusive resort. Dont know if its as nice as the Pelican Bay but it includes all drinks and activites. (Of course meals but that wouldn’t help you anyway) Not sure if you can change the Hotel.

Can somebody who went post the best way it costs to get from the airport to the Island Palm Resort (the hotel) and how much it cost. Thanks alot.

BSW

It seems like some don’t realize (I haven’t until 5 minutes ago) that Freeport is a half hour flight to nassau and cost approximately $150. So going to Nassau for Shabbos aint to practical. Enjoy your trips!

We’re in Freeport now. Originally booked for the Island Palm but when we arrived there by taxi, we were informed that they moved us to a different hotel which actually worked out great for us. To get to the Island Palm, you just get in a taxi – it’s $5 per person plus tip. Taxi rates are standard here so they shouldn’t charge you any more than that. To get to our other hotel was $11 per person because it was further from the airport. We agree with others who’ve posted that there’s not much in kosher food here. And anything with a hechsher is very expensive because it’s gotta be imported. We bought some yogurt, veggies, fruit and pudding at the grocery store. We didn’t see any kosher bread. They also have cereal like you can get in the US, but very expensive – like 7 or 8 dollar a box. We had plans to get some fresh salmon from the grocery store and cook it on our own but didn’t make it there before it closed. Feel free to post questions and we’ll be happy to answer them.

Did anybody stay at the Isalnd Palm? Is it a decent hotel?

Mendel

Dan, you should make a special comment section for people who took advantage of this deal…

(I did not myself, but would love to hear about it)

We just came back from Freeport, 4 of us went to Bell Channel Inn – two of us had rooms at Bell Channel and the other two had rooms at Island Palm – when we got into taxi from the airport, the driver told us Bell Channel was better so we all went there – Large rooms with refrigerators and coffee machines – free shuttle to beach resort and use of all their facilities – had a wonderful time – best vacation in a very long time – we each paid $205 from NY (airfare and hotel) and no additional charges – Hotel was nice and clean and the people were all very friendly. Would do it again, tomorrow, if I could.

Kathy

Looking forward to seeing another great vacation deal !!!

Kathy

My prior message was deleted somehow – – but we just got back from the Bahamas – stayed at the Bell Channel Inn – had a wonderful time !! I’m only sorry that we didn’t book additional trips at the same time for different dates – 4 of us went, we had 2 rooms at Island Palm and 2 rooms at Bell Channel – when we got into taxi at airport upon our arrival we asked the driver which was a better hotel and he said Bell Channel so we all went there – small but clean hotel, people very friendly and curteous – rooms were large, had refrigerators,coffee makers, televisions, free WiFi, balcony, everything we needed. Small pool but good enough – free shuttle to resort hotel where we had free use of their beach, large pool, jacuzzi – it was a great vacation, very restful – glad we went and would go again, tomorrow – cost per person was $205 (airfare and rooms) – no additional charges – thank you, Dan.

We just came back from the Bahamas. Had a wonderful time! The Island Palm was fine, clean rooms, nothing fancy but we got a refrigerator in our room. The people were very helpful and friendly. We rented a scooter and explored the island at our leisure. The cost for both of us with taxes and fees was $160. Thank you for posting this deal! Maybe you could find another one for next year?
