Question BRG with its own website?

I booked a room at Ramada for $99 + tax through their website yesterday for June 26. Now, I see on their website their price dropped to $70. Is there a possibility to do BRG on my reservation? I booked only for one night. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks.

Brg

I'd just cancel and rebook at the lower rate if you can't find a better BRG claim.

Unfortunately, as per their terms and conditions, if they have a lower rate available than what you booked, that will be the rate you are offered. It's only free if it is a competitor with the lower rate.

Think I found a BRG for Anaheim August dates

Roadtripman, since I'm a "newbie" at this could you confirm if I'm doing this right.
Hotels.com has 2 double beds for $79
Wyndham has it for $109 (think it's a substantial difference)
for August 5 Wyndham Anaheim Park.
I'm at a library computer right now so I can't do a screen save but will when I get home later tonight (I'm not computer savy) and then I guess I need to put in a BRG claim. How would it work for 2 nights. Would the first night be free and the second $79? Was going to do a Priceline bid for this area but was going to stay almost a week and know that PL bids for that length of stay might be problematic. If this is indeed legit for BRG I might just book for 8/1 and then 8/11 which will be right before our return back home. Really trying to do this trip on "budget" so a freebie night would work out well.
Have you ever stayed here?
Please let me know if I "did good" on this find...
Thanks,
Carolyn

As long as the room types exactly match up, and the Hotels.com rate is indeed nonrefundable (as should be the Wyndham.com rate), then you have found a BRG.

If you have found it, then yes you will get your first night free and the additional nights at the lower rate ($79).
