You know that pop up on bedandbreakfast.com for a 'secret sale' going on at '3 properties' in whatever town it is you are looking at? I signed up for it. There is no 'secret sale'. It's for the book it button. You have to book thru bb.com to get the discount. I thought maybe there was some other deal thingy I'd missed somewhere. Nope, more of the same.

You get 10% off any 2+ night stay at whatever place has the book it button.

And it is just another way they are promoting booking through their site where they get 30% off the top regular rate, and this is where the 10% comes from - from their profit, so they are still making 20% and feel they are providing another benefit to their members that use that feature.

This I have to give to them, they are putting incentives out there to keep people coming back to their site.  Sometimes they have sales on their gift cards (by $X card and get an $X card for free) too.  They still make money from each sale.

No opt out button, either.
