A room at the InterContinental Tampa on Feb. 10 costs $278 a night. But Dave Willis got his free, thanks to LastMinuteTravel.com’s The World for a Dollar offer. Sound too good to be true? It may be.
Willis is one of the fortunate few who snagged a zero-dollar rate. (”I got a confirmation email with a zero price,” he told me. “They said the bellhop could use the dollar more than they could.”)
He signed up for a “hint” email on Monday and happened to check the site yesterday night. With just five minutes left in a 15-minute window to book, he managed to score a zero-dollar room rate.
“Hope I don’t get a follow-up email saying there was an error,” he adds.
But at least one traveler thinks the promotion isn’t legit. Reader James Fischer decided to time LastMinuteTravel.com’s window of opportunity.
