1. Sign Up. First: the basics. The sale date is a secret and the best way to know when it goes live is to submit your email address in advance. PUBLIC will also share the news on its website and social media channels, but an email that comes right to your inbox is the way to go. Sign up now.
2. Follow PUBLIC on Twitter and Facebook, where the hotel plans to share a sneak peak of the sale 24 hours before sharing it with the rest of the world. This may be the golden opportunity.
3. Whether you catch wind of the sale on Twitter, Facebook or email, be ready to act fast. Drop everything, jump online right and try to book a room. The sale details may say you’ll have up to 48 hours to book a room, but we’re betting the sale is done in a matter of minutes.
4. Try again and again and again. As we shared in our last post, the booking system will likely get bogged down. Your request might not complete or go through the first, third or even 10th time, but just keep calm and carry on.
If you actually score a PUBLIC Chicago hotel room for a $1 -- or have in the past -- tell us about it in the comments below. We’d love to know how you made it happen!
