We were supposed to see a sneak preview of the Daily Getaway Deals on Monday, but it looks like they are out there a tad early (or a stealth Flyertalker stumbled upon them – thanks groobie!). I plan to do an in depth analysis on every deal before it goes on sale, but here is a link to the deals for the first two weeks. They have a disclaimer at the bottom that says the deals with asterisks will have more quantity this year, so they clearly know there was a supply and demand problem last time around. However, in the first two weeks of deals only one deal is reported to have increased availability – the Marriott gift cards.
Here is a very quick summary of the first ten deals. Most seem similar to what we saw last year, but I will have to dig through last year’s posts to see exactly how the prices stack up. They don’t appear very different from first glance. Remember that paying with an Amex card will save you an extra 10% off the prices listed. Limited to US residents only.
June 10th: Marriott Gift Cards at a discount* and nights at a fixed price (ex. $100 gift card for $89)
June 11th: $50 Alamo discount for $25
June 12th: City Pass for major US cities like Seattle, New York, Chicago, and more
June 13th: Ceasar’s Packages in Vegas, Tahoe, Tunica, or Atlantic City
June 14th: Busch Gardens ($45) or SeaWorld ($49) tickets
June 17th: MGM Grand property packages in Las Vegas (including the awesome one I got last year)
June 18th: Omni Hotel & Resorts nights at fixed prices
June 19th: Club Carlson points as low as 1/3 a cent each in batches of 50,000 ($194) or 100,000 ($385)
June 20th: Palazzo or Venetian nights in Vegas
June 21st: Avis one-day rental for $33 or Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115
More to come on this very soon, just wanted to share this quick update since I am super excited about the Daily Getaways!
Which deals do you have your eyes on?
