DealBase CEO Sam Shank Quoted in NYT Today

ok — instant cred for me?  It’s like I learned a new word and now I hear it everywhere.  Yesterday I posted about DealBase — something I had never heard about prior.  I learned about DealBase while researching Addict-o-matic — turns out they have some staff in common.  Anyway — badda boom badda bing — DealBase’s CEO gets a some real estate in today’s NYT business section.  In an article about hotel customer loyalty:

“It’s about offering added value rather than lowering rates,” said Sam Shank, chief executive of, an online search engine for hotels. “When travel fell after 9/11, hotels dropped their rates and it took a while for them to bring those prices up again. They don’t want to go through that again.”
