Use your single for something even better than the fast-food dollar menu—a room at the luxury Public Chicago hotel. Rooms normally go for over $150 per night, but you could stay there for just $1—no minimum stay or regular rate purchase required.
So, what's the catch? You're going to have to act fast, as these rooms are sure to sell out within minutes. Sign up at the Public Chicago's One Dollar Sale website, and the hotel will email you to let you know when the sale has gone live. Once the sale is on, you'll have 48 hours to book a room, and there will be 270-rooms available for a 90 day period.
Don't be greedy—only one room night per customer, and the Public will cancel all your bookings if you try to reserve more than one at the special rate.
