Wyndham Points, IHG Rewards Points, Universal Tickets and More Still Available Via Daily Getaways

The Daily Getaways promotion offered daily points and travel deals for the past month or so.  Some of the deals were better than others, and some sold out in less than a second.  Those super hot deals are long gone, but a few deals remain either because they weren’t that great of an offer for most people to being with, or simply because the available quantity was huge.  The remaining deals are scheduled to end on July 4th if they don’t sell out sooner, so it may make sense to take one more peek at that site to see if anything lines up with your travel goals.  You have the added benefit of being able to browse through the options now without the mad dash that accompanied the daily sales.

Remember that using an Amex card will save you 10% off the listed price. 

Daily Getaways

Points Offers Remaining

IHG Points for less than .6 cents each

These come in various packages ranging from 15,000 – 50,000 points each.  This is the cheapest way to outright buy IHG Rewards points, and a relatively good deal if you can put the points to use to save some money on hotel stays.  These are likely still available as the quantities for sale were very large.

10,000 Best Western Points – $65

There is just one version of this offer out there, and it isn’t one that particularly catches my eye.

Wyndham Reward Points .54 cents each (with 10% Amex discount)

There are several packages available ranging from 14,000 – 75,000 points each.  I would only buy these if you have a specific are relatively immediate need in mind.

Activities Remaining

Four 2-Day admission tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood – $336

Note that this is a pack of four two-day tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood.  I know it says that, but some have been confused so I wanted to repeat it twice.

CityPASS packages to Atlanta, San Francisco, New York, and Chicago – price varies based on city

 

Personally I think the IHG points are the best deal left just because of their versatility, but I could see how one of the hotel packages could potentially be a savings if you knew how you wanted to use it, and were sure that buying via Daily Getaways would save you over the cash rate.

What was your favorite Daily Getaways deal this year?

Comments

  1. Any idea if the IHG packages will be recognizable by Barclays Arrival as a travel expense (both for purchases and for redemptions)?

    I’ve gotten a lot of value from IHG points in the past, and my stockpile is beginning to get a little low.
