How to Save on Airbnb Stays

Scott Grimmer is somewhat of a nomad, spending many weeks per year in distant lands. In this blog post he tells the system he uses to get big discounts on Airbnb stays.

His system involves messaging several Airbnb owners to see if they will accept a big discount, even before he knows anything about their offerings (other than the general location and the asking price).

In the comments section of the blog post, readers call him out on several questions, including how he is able to close the deal without Airbnb receiving their normal fee.
