Last month I made my final plans for my Summer Vacation, which meant the hotel reservations for the trip. In order to get the BEST price for some of the hotels, it required payment in advance and non-refundable. UGH. Sure hope nothing happens before August!
Not all hotels required this payment in advance, but about 5 hotels did. Yesterday I was looking to see how much was on my bill for the last billing cycle. Lo and behold the Hilton in Casper billed me again that day! I called the hotel, and the person who would look at these charges had just gone to the bank, but she would return my call when she returned. She called and said, it was supposed to be marked at advance payment, and someone hit the button wrong. We laughed, and I said, that hotel room would be pretty expensive if they were going to charge me each and every month until vacation time! The charge was reversed.
I know when I ask for a receipt, sometimes they roll their eyes, but you would be surprised at how many bogus charges I see on my credit cards!!
