Bing announced Friday some new features are hotel searches, home repair searches and finding good deals using Bing search. I covered it on Search Engine Land but this was a big list of changes, it is worth covering here too.

Here is a quick summary, unlike what I posted on SEL - which was way more detailed, of the updates:

(1) Bing hotel results will show you the best deals for that hotel across multiple hotel booking sites

(2) Bing will also show you prices across multiple days, if your dates are flexible:

(3) Also this large comparison grid for even more buying decision making power:

(5) Bing will also show you Yelp results where you get a quote from dozens of home repair providers as well.

(6) Bing will also use special snippets to show you deals on a specific site:

That is the short version of what is new with Bing.
