The Daily Getaway deals are over for this year, but there are still 33 different packages still for sale on the website.  Granted, most of these are packages that didn’t sell out for a reason, but there are some deals in there that can absolutely be good in certain situations.  I only bought 2 packages this year (though I tried for 4), and one of the ones I bought was via these “leftover” deals.  I needed some more IHG Rewards (Priority Club) points for a redemption, and this was the cheapest way to buy them.

Here are a few of the available packages that could be useful in some situations, including the prices with the 10% Amex discount.  I will also link to the post devoted to each deal, in case you want more detailed information.

Five Night Stay at a Diamond Property Worldwide – $540

IHG Rewards Club 25,000 points for $150

Two Nights in a Suite: Loews Regency in New York City – $999

Marriott Worldwide Premier Award – $235

Universal Studios Hollywood Vacation Package – $2565 (includes flights, hotels, and theme park tickets for four)

Two Nights in Orlando at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress for $269

250,000 Hilton HHonors Points – $1237.50

The Daily Getaways website lists the packages as for sale through 7/26 (or until they sell out), but this Flyertalk thread indicates someone was told they will be gone after 7/19.  Either way, the days are numbered so see if there is anything left that can save you a few dollars toward a future trip.  The beauty of buying now is you can really sit back and think about it instead of being in a mad rush to hit “Buy” the second they go on sale.

What was your favorite purchase at the Daily Getaways this year?  I’m bummed I missed out on Hyatt and Hertz, but I’m happy to have picked up some Wyndham and IHG points at a good price.  Already looking forward to next year!

  1. I looked into IHG points to add for an upcoming stay but after sitting on hold 3 straight nights for 20+ minutes trying to ask a few questions about redeeming points of Rewards staff I gave up.
    Called SPG. Yhey answered on second ring and in 10 minutes had a 5 night stay booked in HKG for price of 4. May be why the IHG points are dieing on the vine.

  2. I have been a fan of Daily Getaways for a few years.
    The prices have gone up considerably.One year I snagged a 5 night stay at any Marriott Vacation Resort for $500.
    How I long for those days.

    Anyway, I got one Avis voucher to have in case of an emergency and I bought 100,000 Hilton points that I will get alot of use from.

  3. I tried for a Hyatt package. Never had a shot at it against fast-fingered folks – packages were being purchased by others the moment the auction opens! 🙂

  4. Your subtitle is “giving my family the world (for free)”. How can it be free if you are buying points? Are you using your sales commission to pay for the points in order to claim that it is for “free”. Or should it really be ” at a discount”?

  5. @ABC, Wow, that was really insightful. And how can she give away the world if she doesn’t own the world? And how many people has she claimed to give the world to? Can I sue MP bc she promised me the world but gave it to Roger first?

  6. We were planning on staying at a fairly pricey IHG property anyway, so, after doing lots of math, I bought enough points to combine with my existing points and booked the nights at a substantial discount!

  7. I got the Marriott gift cards for a stay in Munich. The Excalibur package for an upcoming trip to Vegas. Then I went for the Diamond Resorts pkg for a visit to Maui in March. I received my certificate and called the number to book and not a single person knew what I was talking about. I got passed around and hung up on. Finally got a great agent who looked into it after I emailed the certificate. Turns out the person who does the booking is on vacation until next week. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping I didn’t wast $540.

  8. @DJ: I got in on the Fairmont deal. I got the ovation rewards certs in the mail – didn’t really inspect them to see if they can be used elsewhere. But the deal specifically mentioned those 2 properties and the breakfast benefit that came with it, so I’m not sure if they can be used at any hotel in collection C. Will report back tonight.
