Time Well Spent

Months ago, I made hotel reservations for a family vacation that will span several states. The total cost made me swoon. Thankfully, I was able to do something about it this week.

I went to each hotel's web site and pretended to make a new reservation using the same information as before. I soon found that four of the hotels have dropped their rates. So I got on the phone and talked to someone at each of those hotels. It took only a matter of minutes for my reservation to be adjusted to reflect the lower price.

The whole process only took about 15 minutes and it saved me more than $200.

In my world, that was time well spent!
