Pruvo is a site that will alert you automatically if your exact same hotel room’s rate has dropped – so you can grab the lower price!
I just got back from Las Vegas where I dropped off some money at The World Series of Poker.
When I booked my hotel four months in advance, it was $782.65. I called them back three weeks before my trip and found it had dropped to $567.34. A week out, it dropped again to $496.59.
I saved $286.06 on two phone calls. Unfortunately, that was my biggest win that week!
This was before I knew about Pruvo. Maybe Pruvo would have saved me more money. It definitely would have saved me time and hassle. And it’s free!
You make a reservation at any website you want. Forward your reservation to firstname.lastname@example.org. They’ll email you once they find a better price for the exact room in the exact hotel. They also launched a Chrome extension that saves the step of emailing the hotel reservation, since the Chrome extension detects automatically reservations made online and imports the relevant data. Get the extension here.
Pruvo does for hotels kinda what AutoSlash does for rental cars. Check out their videos:
