Today’s offer from Daily Getaways are packages of Best Western points. In case you are new to the Daily Getaways, they are daily deals for the next five weeks on discounted hotel stays, discounted points purchases, car rental deals, and more. The travel packages are provided by U.S. Travel Association, in cooperation with participating travel operators of the U.S. Travel Association and advertising support provided by American Express. To get an additional 10% off savings you must pay with any American Express card. Daily Getaways are only open to those who are US residents ages 18 and up (though some packages are for 21+ or even 25+). Here is a link to some tips for successfully purchasing these limited quantity deals.
10,000 Best Western points for $67 ($60.30 with Amex 10% discount).
- 835 available, max purchase of 5 sets of points.
Unless you already have Best Western points and want to top off to secure the award you want, I can’t really see a scenario where buying these points makes sense. To give you an idea of what 10,000 miles gets you, they can transfer to 2,000 airline miles with American Airlines, 6,500 points can you a $25 retail gift card to somewhere like Sears, and free Best Western rooms range from 8,000 – 36,000 points per night.
I did some searches in a few cities in Colorado and Texas and didn’t find any rooms at the 8,000 point level (though i am sure some exist). Most seem to start at the 16,000 point level, so that would be the equivalent of $120 for hotel rooms that could usually be secured for that price, or lower. This deal is a pass for me, but if you know of some good ways to use these points please feel free to share!
These packages go on sale Wednesday at 1PM Eastern on the Daily Getaways website.
