Bidding for Travel
From now until February 14, American Express Cardmembers have an opportunity to make their dream vacations a reality with the “Going Once” online promotion from American Express. AMEX offers a great package each day at noon, then drops the price every 20 minutes until it’s sold to whoever calls first at the new price. American Express designed the vacation packages based on its proprietary data culled from cardmembers’ travel trends and industry publications’ “hot lists.” Ranging from an indulgent Tuscan spa retreat to an exciting African adventure, the packages deliver a customized vacation with pre-arranged tours and top-class lodging. The site will also feature nine fixed-price packages under $2,500 and more than 70 exclusive, premium travel offers. For more information, visit goingonce.
