Costco AMEX Travel Purchase Question

Has anyone used their Costco card to purchase a rental car through Priceline? I am trying to see if anyone can validate whether a priceline transaction would count as a "travel" purchase, thus giving me 2% cb. Thanks!

FICO: EX: 743 (10/14); TU: 758 (9/14); EQ 721 (9/14)

In My Wallet: Amex X 5 | Barclays X 3 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 3 | Citi X 7 | DCU X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 1 | Macys X 1 | PenFed X 1 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1 = 36 Cards

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!

I have read ANYTHING purchased through the big 5 (Priceline, Expedia, Orbit, Hotwire, and of course Amex's partner Travelocity) count towards "travel".
